Cauliflower (without cream and cheesy goodness). It’s a Thing. A Yummy Thing.

c1

Winter makes us crave comfort food, doesn't it? For me, I think about mac & cheese, warm bread and butter, and yes, cauliflower. You know what kind of cauliflower I mean, right? The kind with all sorts of cream and cheese and 10,000 calories. Mmmm ... So, with a craving desperate enough (it's gotta be desperate if I'm going to cook!), I sought out a recipe for cauliflower. And yes, all sorts of yummy, delicious ones popped up. But also … [Read more...]

Bloggers on Daytime Ottawa

Derick Fage, host of Daytime Ottawa, and I in the green room.

Just in case you weren't aware, I wanted to let you know that I'm almost famous now. Yeah, that's right.

Is Lena Dunham a child molester?

1414030712788_Image_galleryImage_Lena_Dunham_shares_photo_

Like most of us interested in film and feminism, we've heard of Lena Dunham. Her film Tiny Furniture, followed by the HBO series Girls has made waves. Waves large enough for critics to refer to Dunham as "the voice of a generation." Well, my "baby" sister is of this generation. So when Dunham's memoir started getting some buzz, I picked up a copy. Recently, though, the memoir has been getting far more than buzz. She's been accused of being a … [Read more...]

The Halloween Re-Cap 2014

steve

This year, in contrast to last year (where the jack-o-lantern was left as "untitled"), Hubby and I felt remarkably prepared for Halloween.
