apple, orange, cranberry sauce

If you’re like me, you’re not a big fan of the cranberry sauce that magically retains the shape of the can it comes out of. After avoiding this side dish at every pertinent holiday, several years ago, I discovered a Williams-Sonoma recipe for apple, orange, cranberry sauce and my family and I have never looked back. While I’ve altered it a bit from the original, trust me when I say it’s every bit as delicious as the first year I made it. I am very thankful for this flavorful cranberry medley and think you will be too. Happy holidays!

The Deauville Beach Resort: Just Say No…

So much can be said of the hotel I just stayed in for a conference…sadly, none of it is good. I mean, what does one call a hotel where the AC in the conference room has two settings–on and off? You call it, The Deauville Beach Resort in Miami Beach, FL (that I will never again go to in life). Honestly, I don’t know where to begin. When one of the conference speakers tells...

Poor Plane Etiquette

As if the ridiculously high baggage fees, nonsensical charge for disgusting airplane food, and the sometimes flat out stupid and invasive TSA screenings don’t make traveling hard enough; I honestly believe that if Ashton Kutcher still made Punk’d, I’d be on it right now. On a plane to Miami for a content strategies conference. Now, I have no idea what I’m heading into because the hotel the conference is at had 416 terrible ratings online and...

The Mani/Pedi Experience

I have a conference in Miami later this week. Now, considering it’s currently 30 degrees here in Maryland, to say I’m not ready for sandal season would be an understatement. As such, I went to get a mani and a pedi tonight. I worked until 6pm, so I was tired, but I had to do what I had to do. So off to the local mani/pedi place I went. It’s a mass production place....

Upcoming Posts

Well, it’s been busy, busy, busy, and there’s only more busy to come! Which all bodes well for me, this blog, and its readers. I didn’t want the time between posts to drag on so I thought I’d provide a quick preview of what’s to come and whet everyone’s appetite. I was fortunate to attend an incredibly awesome one day conference in Washington, D.C. at the Chamber of Commerce. It was hosted by the...

Social Media: Is It Too Much?

Let me first address the elephant in the room: No, I will not be doing an Oscars recap. I was at an evening church service, last night, enjoying my phenomenal pastor, Rev. Dr. Ann Lightner-Fuller, preach (shameless promo: Come out to Mt. Calvary AME Church in Towson and be blessed!)–so I missed the red carpet arrivals. I then attempted to watch the show and it was so awful, I not only lost interest in...

Get To The Parking Lot

Let’s dive right in shall we? For starters, I have been MIA (in case you care, and I’m sure you do) because my right hand/wrist was in a brace for a week+. The original diagnosis was carpal tunnel. Thankfully, the real diagnosis was a flare up of my tendonitis. The brace is gone, ibuprofen is my friend, and once again, I am able to write and type. Yeah me! Recently, I acquired an Accountability...
