Retrospection in Halloween Costumes

“Halloween is an opportunity to be really creative.” ~ Judy Gold You could argue that even from a young age I loved clothes and fashion. My mom use to spend hours sitting at her sewing machine, while my siblings and I boisterously played outside. She would make dresses, and sweaters. Vests for my brothers and winter coats for my sisters. ….


A Homemade Applesauce Converter

“By all these lovely tokens September days are here, With summer’s best of weather And autumn’s best of cheer.” ~ Helen Hunt Jackson Keeping with the apple theme and also channeling a bit of childhood, my Mom, aunt, and grandmother use to make this scrumptious delicacy all the time when I was growing up. Yet as a chef and someone ….

‘Tis the Season for Apple Crisp

“Unless a tree has borne blossoms in spring, you will vainly look for fruit on it in autumn.” ~  Walter Scott As a former pastry chef now living in the Concrete  Jungle.

The Cure to the Creeping Crud: Fall Pilot Reviews

I know. I know. I have been MIA. And surely shirking my duties. No. I didn’t decide to fly to some deserted island or get lost in the White Mountains surrounded by glorious foliage. I wish! Nope. I was knocked down by the creeping crud, otherwise known as allergies and a really bad ear infection (WHATTTT??? WHATTT DID YOU SAY???) ….

Amid the Mermaid Tears

“I have spent many hours on the beach collecting sea glass, and I almost always wonder, as I bend to pick up chunk of bottle green or a shard of meringue white, what the history of the glass was. Who used it? Was it a medicine bottle? A bit of a ship’s lantern? Is that bubbled piece of glass with ….

The Writing Blues

“The things that block a writer are not the lack of words, but the same things that block all people – the difficulties of life.” ~ Max Apple There are days when I just can not get out of my own head. Not because I am immersed in my characters and their subsequent world like they are Angelina and Brad. Nor because ….
