Lil Blue Boo - Part 5 I’m scared to see the movie Wolf, because I’m worried it might trigger PTSD. I read the recent NYT article for For the Love of Money and I had flashbacks of an earlier life. It would take years to tell the whole story. It’s all a huge circus under a tent called “investment banking.” But I can condense some of it into a quick short story…with a few pages from my journal at the time: Lebanese Baked Chicken (Frarej) Lebanese Baked Chicken (Frarej) This recipe has been one of my most popular and most visited recipes to date. Our best friends in Dallas have taken us several times to a wonderful little Lebanese restaurant over in Ft. Worth named Hedary’s. Family-operated for many years, I can say their tabouleh salad and kebabs are to die for! So is their slow-roasted baked lemon chicken known as Frarej.

Pink Grapefruit Cake (Part II) - Urban Comfort I sort of gave up on blogging last week. I took a look at the the state of my house, the length of my to-do list, and the amount of coffee in my pantry and psychologically went on strike.
