Recipe | No-Bake Nutella Kahlúa Espresso Cookie Truffles

The elements of this recipe are all things I love. Any one of these edibles or drinkables is delightful in and of itself, but when you combine them . . . it’s basically sorcery. With chocolate. Let’s start with Oreos. If you grew up without ever curling up with a sleeve of these chocolate wafer Continue Reading

In order to protect the families involved, Avery prefers to remain anonymous.

Heeding the Signs |The Persistent Optimist

I vacillate daily between a belief that the universe sends me important signs in everything—that butterfly that just landed on my car when I want good news, and the fork breaking before I got food poisoning—and a certainty that there’s no one true meaning, thus all that matters is what you make of experience that Continue Reading

Cocktail Corner | Boozy Gingerbread Latte

The truth is, I’ve been thinking about gingerbread since the first appearance of holiday season decorations on store shelves – which as we all know is the sign of the Retail Solstice.

The Duckling Complex: Why I'm Still Learning How To Take A Compliment

I have never liked getting compliments. Well, that’s not entirely true. What I don’t like is the immediate experience of receiving a compliment.

The Toilet Feeling

  I was giving one of those ridiculously long, lectures from the front seat of the minivan one day, rattling on about how honesty and integrity, along with kindness, are the most important things in the world.  But I explained to Emma that my quest to stay on the honest path has sometimes made an Continue Reading

Carl In The Rye: In Defense of The Walking Dead's Carl Grimes, the Last Poster Boy for Disaffected Youth

*SPOILERS AHEAD If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you’ll probably want to know about Carl is that he killed off old Dale Horvath and a host of other folks across the zombie infested Georgia landscape.
