SEASON: April to November SAUCY’S 2-CENTS: I hate trivia. I do. Ok. That’s a lie. I like trivia about pinecones. Sad, but true. But I really do despise most trivia. That is probably because trivia is by very definition “very unimportant, inconsequential, or nonessential[.]” Thank you In short, trivia... Continue reading

Thanks! Always trying to bring a new twist to breakfast -- my FAVORITE meal of the day!
ON BORAGE: Season: spring to mid-summer Festive trivia (i.e. reason enough to try Borage): (1) Learn from the Romans: Borage was used by the Romans to cure hangovers as it is a natural tonic for stress and depression. Move over Alka-Seltzer. Next time you throw a raging toga party (don’t... Continue reading

Anytime!!! It was fascinating to research and exciting to find a fun twist on quinoa!
Ramblings: Calling all health nuts, muscle-bound human chimps, hippies, weight loss junkies, anthropologists, and anyone named Piper (random shoutout to the mother!!!!). You are about to fall in love – with a breakfast dish. But first, it’s time for everyone to meet one of the healthiest foods on earth. Quinoa.... Continue reading

Does anyone know what kind of beets she was used for the beet recipe? I feel like she referenced a specific type, but it is hard to hear in the video. The recipe looks AMAZING!!

Ramblings: Cheap. Tightwad. Scrooge. Moneygrubber. Penny-pincher. Stiff. Ouch!! A person wants to save a couple of bucks and suddenly they risk being called a stiff? I mean, come on now. Brutal! Saving cash? How about…smart?!? I was watching the Food Network the other day (the only reason I have cable... Continue reading

Thanks, Cassie!! It truly has been a blast. I LOVE having the excuse to learn more about food. Hm. And eat more. ;)
Oooo! I LIKE the idea of using spring onions and pea shoots. Could not agree with you more on the butter. I mean, we don't need to take it Paula Deen triple-time butter, but you pretty much can't go wrong. Ahh, Nate. My cooking inspiration!!

Time out. No seriously, we’re stopping time for a moment. Stop checking your email, while you text your friend, as you change your Pandora station, while you are on speaker phone dealing with your credit card company that put a mystery charge on your bill. Yeah, you…you multi-tasking rockstar. Today?... Continue reading

, Dear reader, We interrupt this broadcast of silliness, snarkiness, and general verbal debauchery to bring you...content. (Dare to dream.) Last Friday, I had the pleasure of meeting Anna Lappé, author of Diet for a Hot Planet, at a phenomenal event coordinated by the folks over at 18 Reasons, a... Continue reading

Ramblings: Personal confession. I am a 15 year-old trapped in a 31 year-old body. It’s true. I will sit Indian style given pretty much any opportunity. I still think hard candy is the best thing ever. And I’d rather giggle than laugh, chuckle, or snicker. Which is probably why when... Continue reading

I was going to wait for the full Nate Cardozo tribute!
I visited Contigo I think the second or third night after it opened. It was impossibly delicious. I would recommend it to anyone!!!

My mom? Best. Cook. EVER!!!
Marty, I've missed OUT. One more day, I have ONE more day to make it happen. Oh, it's on! ;)
I am pretty sure I was meant to live 100 years ago. Setting aside my current modern addictions -- the internet, my iPhone, and the ability to purchase what should be illegal quantities of caffeine on just about every street corner -- I think I would have dug life in... Continue reading

Dan Ackroyd. Trading Places. That scene where he pulls the grotesque piece of salmon that he stole from a holiday party out of his narsty Santa suit on a New York City bus, gets it caught in his festering beard, and actually eats it? Seasonal holiday eating gone BAAAAAAD. Most... Continue reading

SEASON: Late November to early April MY 2-CENTS: Growing up in Wisconsin (home of all things chic, like Leinenkugel's and the Mars' Cheese Castle) I NEVER EVER thought I would get into wine. I naively equated wines with snobs. And classy with a toucha snob? Just. Not. Me. But then... Continue reading

Sports fans? Have it easy. Baseball season. April to November. Football season. August to February. Basketball season. November to April. Fruits and veggies? They’re a little more mercurial. I mean, imagine how absurd it would be if baseball season did not begin unless Chicago had 34 days of the last... Continue reading
