Disruption, Anxiety and ultimate Surrender. Let's sit down for a meal!

Hello, Where have I been a few of you have asked? My answer is that I thought that I was pretty good at basic math but now I doubt that. What I mean is back in November we had baby #2, a sweet little boy. Up until that point, our routines were set. I scheduled time for writing, my…

I'm Doing what I'm Fearing and the Fearing is Disappearing

Since I was a little kid I have been able to Swim; at least a loose definition of the word. I could tread water, play in lakes, rivers, the ocean and swimming pools with little difficulty. Racing across a pool was fun because I often won and didn't have to worry much about technique during short bursts.

However, There is one aspect of swimming that has bothered me for a while; That is the inability to swim any distance of note. I would kick my way, breath my way (which entailed…

Another Article: Alice's Kitchen, off-the-beaten-path

Some of the best food is the off-the-beaten-path comfort food. Alice’s Kitchen in North Salt Lake is just that. You wouldn’t have any idea it was there unless someone guided you in.

What a fun experience to write about Alice’s. Please check it out:…

Curry Fried Chicken: is that an oxymoron?

Not it is not an oxymoron? It's a delicious restaurant that has done a wonderful job of incorporating Indian Spices with American Comfort Food. Just by walking in, you will be in a complete meditative state from the aroma.

This place truly has Artists at work. Check out the…

Vintage Burgers, Not Antiques

On a quiet corner in downtown Salt Lake City, there is a place so obvious that you might miss it. This is because you won't realize that it's one of the best burger joints in the city. They do a good job of disguising themselves; maybe not intentionally. It appears to be an antique…

Spicy Smoked Pork Chili!

Over the weekend, I entered a Chili Cookoff. Having never cooked a chili before, I felt a little intimidated; especially since I helped to organize the event.

I had a great time and took 3rd, 4th & 5th amongst the Judges. I didn't add up to an overall top 3 finish but I was…

Enchiladas with Chocolate you say?

While out to eat with a friend the week before we last, we went to a Grill that I have been driving past for years. It was one of those places that I told myself I would get to when I had time. We all know that this is like saying you will save whatever money is left at the end of the month; it…

Here is your 7 lb, 6 oz, 19 inch child; oh wait, that's a Sandwich?

Yes, that was my experience the first time that I went to Grove Market & Deli: I thought that they were handing me a newborn child. It felt like a whole loaf of bread stuffed with delicious meats and cheeses. You can eat this for lunch, dinner and breakfast the next…

Heavenly Philly at a Hidden Gem

Last month at the Innov48 Conference I shared that I have a love affair with food. It's one of those affairs that you don't need to keep secret. Often people ask me where they should go to eat and they are a little confused when I don't immediately have an answer. That is because I like to get…

My Article: "Your Own Thai Noodle Menu"

It's the unique creations and options that stand out at a restaurant. Sometimes we want the comfort of the familiar and other times, okay often, we want something unique; in other words, the WOW factor.

One of the "Wows" that I have found is Siam Orchid's "Build Your Own Noodle Menu"…
