“Adventure in the Blue Ridge Mountains, with Recipes”

I’ve had quite the whirlwind few weeks lovelies. I’m not sure where to begin so I’ll start with… …this blurry picture. It was taken when I was trying on 1.6 million outfits at the Beretta gallery store in Dallas. If you’ve been reading this website ‘o mine for a while, you’ll recall that I don’t like shopping or trying on clothes much. I get all exasperated. I like people to […]

“Outstanding in the Field”

Recently I had the privilege of attending an “Outstanding in the Field” dinner and I wanted to tell you all about it since while it has a cult following, I had never heard of it. It is a culinary experience on wheels. Their mission is to connect the diners with the food that they are eating. They literally put a long table outside and people come eat where their food […]

“An Adventure with Me, Bryant Gumbel and HBO”

My last Adventure Getaway was ca-raaaa-zay fun. These trips just keep getting more and more fun. Just when I think they won’t get any more fun… they do. The reason I haven’t posted any pictures of the Montana Adventure yet is because the New York Times came and documented it for 3 days straight, and an amazing photographer took about 8,000 photos. I can’t wait to see which ones they […]

September, though, I loved. Here is why: […]
