Not-Too-Unhealthy Apple Pie

Dear Reader, Making healthy recipes can be more complicated than it sounds. For one, often such recipes require a handful of ingredients you may not have on hand, like arrowhead root, spelt, agave, or coconut sugar. Additionally, at times these recipes substitute natural ingredients, like cane sugar, for more questionable options like stevia, erythritol, or... Continue Reading →

[Review] American Psycho

Dear Reader, How much does someone’s favorite book say about that person? In the thriller series “You,” by Caroline Kepnes, the heartthrob-serial-killer protagonist, Joe, is surprised to learn that his chipper, middle-aged employee, Ethan, claims “American Psycho” to be his favorite book. Have you read “American Psycho” by Bret Easton Ellis? Maybe, you’ve seen the... Continue Reading →

Gently Down the Stream

Dear Reader, They say, “the best things in life are free.” And, when they say the “best things” they are probably referring to health, love, family, friends, etc. — which are great, but there are very many other beautiful free things out there! I’m a bit of a scavenger (more here), finding free clothes and... Continue Reading →

Yes! And…

Dear Reader, Young city people on TV sitcoms are always getting themselves wrapped up in the darndest situations. They have the most eclectic interests. You find them attending a Burning Man-esque festival in the desert like in “Crazy Ex-Girlfirend,” taking cooking classes like Monica and Joey in "Friends," or randomly playing laser tag like Barney...

Three Strangers Walk into a Bar

Dear Reader, If I were to live for 200 years, there would still be a number of things that I would never do. I would probably never have enough courage to go skydiving, enough money to stay in a penthouse suite in Monte Carlo, or enough time to read all the “great works of literature.”...

[Review] Home Chef

Dear Reader, If you’re a reluctant-but-wannabe-better cook, meal-prep delivery services may just appeal to you. With my (somewhat) recent Hello Fresh experience in the back of my mind (more here), I had a pretty good idea of what I was getting myself into when I subscribed to Home Chef. Like with the Hello Fresh, I... Continue Reading →

Pandemic on Pause

Dear Reader, The very last time that I was on an airplane was pre-pandemic on my solo adventure to Colombia (more here). Sitting in an airport, writing to you now, I can’t help but sigh and think to myself — “my, how things have changed.” Unlike my trip to Colombia, my flight this time is... Continue Reading →

[Review] Boston Winery

Dear Reader, Wine in the U.S. is big business — a $220 billion industry to be more exact. While 90% of the wines produced in the U.S. come from California, it turns out that each and every U.S. state has at least one winery. While Boston is not known for its wine-growing abilities, the city is... Continue Reading →

Vermont’s Itty-Bitty Capital

Dear Reader, If you’re a fan of road trips, then you have probably already asked yourself on more than one occasion whether a particular spot is “worth the visit.” In my experience when a location is intriguing but there isn’t too much to do, then making a long rest stop can be just the right...
