My Bad

Apologies to everyone for the blog back-up but my CEO and Supervising Blog Coordinator, the talented Ned "Le Freak" Clarke, had some mishaps and was not here for the past two weeks to aid me in my quest to bring you superior and informative blogage. He informed me that he contracted the "Noro Virus" from accidentally ingesting a chicken wing that he found underneath an old mattress in a Vietnamese massage parlor, causing him to be bedridden for 10 days. Wow.

Pasta Comeback

I fancy myself immune to food trends, but lately I’ve had to admit that the low-carb mania of a few years back has insidiously snuck its way into the deeper, more permanent layers of our collective psyche, including mine. There was a time when I ate pasta for dinner nearly seven days a week. With crusty bread. After eating a muffin for breakfast and a sandwich for lunch! I mean, who does that anymore? No one I know.

Sweet Treat

Tasty toffee tid-bits.

The lovely Mollie Lewis paid us the best kind of visit today—she came bearing sweet treats, and she came right before lunch when I’m at my snackiest.  Mollie is the mastermind behind “Matzel Toffee,” individual matzah crackers covered with toffee, dark chocolate and big chunks of almonds. Before you dismiss them (matzah kind of has a bad rap, I know) let me reassure you: This is one good snack.
