Mission accomplished: my mom and I viewed 52 movies before February 28. This includes each of the 15 short films (never knew I was missing out on these awesome flicks!), and unfortunately does not include the foreign films since they weren’t released anywhere near us until March — our limit was two hours, which is how far we drove to see the documentary shorts. Turns out actually watching every nominated film does not make you an expert, but it does make you a bit of a dork who says, “Let’s host an Oscar… Read More
For me, being invited to a dinner party is a chance to catch a glimpse into other people’s idea of good food (and their medicine cabinets – don’t judge, we all do it.) For the new boyfriend or girlfriend, it’s a nail-biting date; for in-laws, it’s untimely; for grandkids, it’s “What’s in the jello?”; for co-workers, it’s just more work…you get my drift.

My younger brother Drew is an aspiring chef. I think for at least the last decade the kitchen has been Drew’s domain. Last year, at the age of 17, he published a calendar with beautiful pictures of some of his favorite creations, accompanied by recipe cards. He’s amazing, and I’m not just saying that because he’s my little brother. If I was stranded on an island and could only bring one thing, I’d bring him because we could quote Monty Python over some creative feast made out of coconuts and fish. “Are… Read More
