Monday night I had an overwhelming urge to make chocolate chip cookies. In order to clear my conscience of guilt, I decided that I am really doing myself a favor by cleaning out my cupboards so that I don’t have to move it all in a couple of weeks. Well, I think that most everyone […]

Maccaroni & Cheese

What’s better than macaroni and cheese when you need a little decadent comfort food? What I love about this version is that it tastes rich but it isn’t – and its cheep to boot. As I have said many times before, I am on a budget, and as of last week it became a tourniquet. […]

Lettuce Wraps

Please don’t be scared off by what I am about to tell you. Monday night I was bored and I wanted to make something I had never done before. I spent at least half an hour going through my cupboards/fridge in a sorry attempt to create something new. I began to digress and wash the […]


“You’re very neapolitan…”

…as my sister said during her first visit to my apartment in downtown Milwaukee. We all had a good laugh over that one, because she very obviously meant cosmopolitan.
