Why I am Not Buying Bon Appetit This Month

I hate to be a baby or pompous or something about this, but I am refusing to buy Bon Appetit this month because they put Gwyneth Paltrow on the cover.

I feel like BA used to be an awesome FOOD magazine, and the recent shift has definitely made the magazine more hip and improved the design. But when they start putting annoying celebrities on the cover who think they're chefs because they can throw some asparagus in pasta, then they've lost me.

I want to hear about the people who are going to be the next Anthony Bourdains and the next great mixologists, who have calluses on their hands and have actually worked at doing something other than being glamorous.

Someone's Misplaced a Pawn


so lonely

Human chess, anyone?

watch me listen please

How I Feel Today

(and every day this week)




"I am lonely, yet not everybody will do. I don't know why, some people fill the gaps and others emphasize my loneliness. In reality those who satisfy me are those who simply allow me to live with my 'idea of them.' "


Somewhere (does it matter?).








"Faith is a bird that feels dawn breaking and sings while it is still dark."

Today I am Grateful For

Having a job that lets me work from home on occasion.

Sunshine (non-tyrannical).


surprised me today with a picture he sneakily took on my camera when I wasn't looking...

That I live in a place with so many good things to eat.

Prosciutto Crudo sammich at Boccalone

And so many interesting people.


Having friends who love food as a way of life, not calories.
