The elusive DIY pizza.
It sounds like a fun project at first until you end up with a complete mess of a kitchen and lackluster results.
Don’t turn away from me. You shouldn’t be ashamed of past failures with making pizza at home. I nearly gave up myself on ever achieving restaurant-quality pizza.
The dough is never right (too thick, thin, soft, or hard). The sauce is off. Too watery, bland, or chunky.
Your pizza at home never has the same “look” as the pizzas you had enjoyed dining out (you know, when restaurants were still a thing).
Well, guess what? I am here to tell you, “yes… you can.” …
The photo above was taken at one of my favorite “secret” spots in Magnuson Park. I have wanted to write about outdoor cycling for a while now, and must say that my experience of getting into it this year would not have happened if not for the Pandemic.
I used to go to spin classes regularly, and enjoyed them. While, that’s obviously off the table right now, I don’t think I’ll be returning. I am hooked on cycling outdoors throughout each season, after riding a few thousand miles outdoors so far this year.
There are silver linings to be found in all of this turmoil. …
I love Scallops.
Besides being delicious, Scallops are a sustainable food source! Eating seafood is unfortunately dicey these days. We have to look out for contaminants such as mercury and purine. Fortunately, Scallops are one of the healthiest and sustainable seafood choices available currently.
While containing some purine and low amounts of mercury, it is okay to consume Scallops in moderation, and there are many benefits! Scallops are 80% protein, provide antioxidants, phosphorus, zinc, selenium, iron, potassium, B12 and are low in fat.
I prefer only to eat Alaskan Scallops seeing as I was born and raised in “The Last Frontier.” I may be biased, but I feel that all seafood produced in Alaska (& similarly located places like Norway) delivers a wild product that is of a higher quality and is healthier for you because of the lack of pollution in those arctic waters. …
A friend recently asked me to come up with a few recipes for busy moms.
This recipe is also for busy people in general. Singles who’s job is their demanding baby, college students learning how to cook, also the numerous busy moms out there juggling a household and hungry mouths.
I’ve been there, and it’s unfortunate that when our kids were little, I had not discovered the awe and wonder… that is the Electric Pressure Cooker.
I’m not sure where things went wrong, but pressure cookers got a lousy wrap years ago. Sure, they can blow up… but only if you grossly misuse one (or happen to be a terrorist), and honestly, it’s just about impossible for anything to go wrong with the safety precautions of the new and improved electric pressure cookers on the market today. …
This was not the first recipe I planned to share about cooking with cannabis, however, I had a debt that needed to be paid.
I promised my friend Nikolaos that I would make him a batch of edible cookies… a long time ago. Overcome with guilt, I asked what his favorite kind of cookie was, he replied “white chocolate chip macadamia nut.”
My eyes glazed over. This was my favorite cookie as a kid growing up! Yes, it’s ridiculously rich, pleasantly sweet… nostalgic, and so… so… good.
I haven’t enjoyed a white chocolate chip macadamia nut cookie in probably 20 years, much less one infused with my homemade cannabis butter! Imagine it dipped in coffee or espresso. Perhaps crumbled over an affogato (ice cream with espresso/coffee poured over the top). …

This is the very first recipe I am formally publishing for Jezebel’s Feast.
After searching deep in my soul for what recipe I could offer the public that would have the most positive impact, the answer was suddenly unmistakable. …
“What is the pot of gold that justifies spending the best years of your life hoping for happiness in the last?” — Tim Ferriss The 4-Hour Workweek
I am launching my self-hosted website for Jezebel’s Feast tonight, and debuting the beginning of this stretch of my journey with an article about Lifestyle Design.
I set a deadline for the launch weeks ago and realized I had inadvertently set the date, November 7th, on what would have been my late father’s 96th birthday. …
Tell me … the truth my child
I’m weary of your lies
Tell me … why lie all the time?
You chose this; don’t look away
The very least you can do is meet my ignited gaze
Tell me… you can’t truly be surprised
I am more than willing… to burn you all alive
Cities cleansed; washed away in molten floods and tears of ash
Sparks of resentment lashing out across the lands -
The howling of injustice swirling within violent winds
I was reluctant to publish “Endure & Overcome Your Misogynist Boss.”
I considered letting that story sit for a few more days and another round of edits, but I remember feeling anxious to let it go. I could ceremoniously depart from all of the negativity I absorbed over the past year by publishing my writing about the experience. After closing that door, perhaps another would open.
I did not realize how much I bottled up dealing with a narcissistic psycho for a manager at what I thought was my “dream job.” …
Climate change isn’t going to disappear.
For too many years, the scientific community has been harping on the consequences of our negligence with carbon emissions and other pollution resulting in climate and ecological changes. Most recently, there was the damning report published by 11,000 scientists last winter warning that if humans do not make significant changes with our behavior, we’re facing permanent damage to our planet by 2050.
It’s like we’re cutting off our nose to spite our face. Why do we continue to do this to ourselves? I think altering the course of destruction we are on is going to come down to individuals in mass, making the decision to personally make changes in your daily life to live a sustainable lifestyle. …
