It’s timely that I recently referenced my rampant college-era love for Morrissey and the Smiths because this past weekend I found myself staring at a Morrissey impersonator named “Ronnissey” at ...
In honor of John’s birthday on Friday, I decided to finally make the peanut butter pie that’s been sitting in my “recipes to make” folder (an actual manilla folder, not a virtual one) for 2 years. With its dense chocolate cookie crust and cold, creamy peanut butter mousse-like filling, I knew John (hater of cake […]
A few nights ago I got a text from my co-worker Lori Pedrick (the talented Art Director behind every Yankee cover and layout) asking if I was interested in some of the bounty from her peach tree.
