Grain-Free, High Protein Raw Cookie Dough Snack

SONY DSC

One of the fundamental principles taught in English 101 is the essay “thesis statement”–that’s your stance on an issue, your argument, your point of view.

SONY DSC

This recipe will provide you with a quick, simple and tasty side dish or first course. Plus, bonus title alliteration! Living in a primarily Italian neighborhood has its advantages.  I’ve learned how to grow tomatoes (of course, “knowing how” doesn’t necessarily guarantee success); that bocce ball is not (No, no, Signora, not at all!) the same as cricket; […]

Or, What to Do with those Nearly-Stale Nacho Chips.  Even though these days it takes me almost 15 minutes before I can stand up fully erect after first rolling out of bed (in which I sleep on my back, with 2 pillows under my knees so my spine can retain its proper […]
