Happy Burns Night! January 25th is, in Scotland, known as Burns Night. It’s when we celebrate our beloved bard, Robert Burns; it’s a celebration involving haggis, neep, tatties and considerable amounts of whisky. So logic would dictate that the following soup involve haggis, and well, everyone has boundaries. Mine involve having haggis soup. Continue reading
As my beloved Elementary has been on a two-week break (it’s back next week, I promise), I thought I’d highlight an Australian TV show that is a recent obsession. Continue reading
Parenthood fans knew what the main focus of “You’ve Got Mold” as they sat down to watch it this week.

Looking for something different to make for breakfast? These lemon ricotta pancakes are different enough yet still easy to make. The recipe can be found in the French Women Don’t Get Fat Cookbook, as well as on frenchwomendontgetfat.com. As always with French Women Don’t Get Fat, keep in mind that it was a diet program that was popular in the mid-2000s, so while the rhetoric might be a little much, the recipes are still worth it.
