Mark Teixeira Pie

on
Victory tastes sweet. Especially when it’s a postseason Pinstripe win.   Last night was the second game of the American League Division Series (ALDS). I’d fallen asleep somewhere in the 9th inning, but jumped up when I heard the crack of the ball against Mark Teixeira’s bat at the bottom of the 11th. Tex hit a […] [Read More]

Simple & Chic Chocolate-Coconut Gelato

on
“Dangerous,” “Off the Wall” and “Smooth Criminal.” They’re not just Michael Jackson songs. They’re the first words you’ll shout when you taste my dark chocolate-coconut gelato (which, by the way, is dairy-free).  One spoon of this homemade creamy-dreamy dessert and you’ll think you’ve committed a bad, bad crime. You might even moonwalk across the kitchen […] [Read More]

No one was there. Nothing had fallen. I panicked. I was certain a burglar or rabid animal had somehow […] [Read More]

You don’t have to sit in a bubble or raid CVS for a box of surgical masks. Dr. Tina Zigo, naturopathic physician at the Center for Natural Healing in Monroe, shares her tips for […] [Read More]

Kermit Was Wrong: Being Green Is Easier Than You Think

on
  I used to think “going green” simply meant painting my face like a witch for Halloween. It’s scary how I thought nothing of poor Mother Earth, who for years silently bore the brunt of my unconscious environmental abuse: my treadmill-pounding, aerosol-hairspraying, Styrofoam-using ways. I never stopped to consider the importance of the air, water […] [Read More]

Chocolate-Strawberry Succor

on
  What do you get when you put four (single) female writers in one room with a few bottles of wine and an oversized batch of chocolate-covered strawberries? Answer: lots of estrogen, endorphins and laughs about problems of the pen to problems with men. Carrie Bradshaw couldn’t write our stories if she tried.  A few […] [Read More]
