Why do I need an Outdoor Kitchen?

Come on, it’s not that far from my indoor kitchen to my patio; is it really necessary for me to have an outdoor kitchen? Of course it isn’t necessary; it’s like having a dishwasher – if you’ve never had one, you don’t miss it. But once you’ve used one, you wonder how you ever got along without it. There’s a reason why outdoor kitchens have become increasingly popular over the past decade – they’re awesome.  When you...

Remember the Titans

Why settle for being the grill “god” when you can be a Titan? What’s a Titan you ask? If you had paid any attention in high school when you were studying mythology you would know the answer to that question. The Titans were the original supreme rulers of the universe; they were the pre-Olympian gods; Zeus and all his buddies were just the new kids on the block. How can you take your place among the pantheon of supreme beingness (at least in regards to hamburgers...

Smokin’ Hot! Cooking with a Smoker.

The idea of grilling in a clay or ceramic container is not a new one; variations have been found throughout history. The nearest relative of the modern-day ovoid or egg shaped smokers were similar vessels used in China as early as 221 BC during the Qin dynasty. (Remember that word for scrabble – a “q” with no “u”!) The Chinese, and later the Japanese, used clay pots with domed lids to cook in a variety of ways, all involving heat from burning wood or...

Time Out for Tail-Gating

Consider this: Nationwide Insurance estimates that over 50 million people spend over $12 billion dollars annually on…tail-gating. Yep; they willingly toss food, drinks, lawn chairs, blankets and balls in the trunk of their cars, pile in and drive to a stadium parking lot where they unload everything and hang out. For hours. Even more interesting, about 35 percent of the tail-gaters don’t even go into the stadium to watch the game. They are tail-gating for the love of...

Buying Furniture to Last

Forget New Year’s resolutions; for me, spring has always been the time of the year where I am able to consider making changes in my life; while there is the evidence of life after death in red tulips and yellow daffodils springing from dry bulbs; skeletal trees bursting into bud and bloom; cold quiet mornings morphing into a symphony of bird-songs…this is the season of possibility, of change, of resurrection…this is the season to clear out the old, the ugly, to get rid of...

MadMen may have entered its final season, but the madmen flair lives on. Mid-Century Modern continues to be a front-runner for style of all kinds,...

Accessorize, Accessorize, Accessorize

You have a little black dress. You’ve worn it to church with kitten heels, a subtle strand of pearls and tiny gold hoop earrings. You’ve worn it to a business meeting with open toe pumps, a chunky silver “statement” necklace and a thick silver bangle bracelet. You’ve worn it to brunch with colorful beads and flat sandals. And you’ve worn it out to dinner with diamond stud earrings and a huge, sparkly cocktail ring. Four different looks, one dress –...

In Like A Lion…

It’s March and, while there happens to be 7 inches of snow in my backyard, it is still time to start thinking about what is lurking under that blinding blanket of white. I guarantee you, it’s not pretty. I am one of those people who are great at giving advice but not so great at following it myself. So I have a literal pile of uncovered furniture on my patio, along with cushions, pillows, half empty terra cotta pots, plant stands, and an assortment of outdoor flummery. And...
