If you haven’t heard of this before, don’t write it off right away! This recipe is simple and quick. And you’ll barely feel like you’re eating a vegetable because you’ll get to use fun things like butter and cream. Yum. Anyway, the name says it all; this dish pretty much entails simmering and pureeing cauliflower […]
I met Subject M when he crashed my New Year’s Eve party many moons ago. See why I’ve kept him for around for 10+ years after the cut.
My lack of finesse in the kitchen is pretty well documented here on Persephone, with pictures and everything, but I managed to pull off something delicious completely by accident, and I had to share. I made a meatloaf, the most boring dish made out of ground beef in a sea of boring ground beef dishes, […]
I am a firm believer that an international experience is one of the best educations you can get. To leave your culture and your comfort zone and delve into new perceptions, flavors, smells and ideas can be the quickest way to realize both one’s humility and humanity.
I am firm believer that cooking is an ongoing experiment. When I watch cooking shows, or read cookbooks, and am told, ‘Now, make SURE you follow this exactly, because it won’t turn out right if you don’t’, I laugh.

I’m the lady that makes every type of holiday treat and forces them on my friends. I dip everything I can find in chocolate, I make little flavored mints in molds, I make so many cookies in so many flavors my house smells great all through November and December. And I gladly pull out the […]
Q: What do you do when you find yourself dependent on a particular kink to get turned on or get off? I’m into kink-light (hair pulling, some domination and restraint, but nothing too major) and I am totally ok with all this. But, it’s not what I want all of our sex to be, and […]
Without coffee, I am a crusty bitch. I limit myself to two cups a day, because it turns out I’m also a crusty bitch if I drink more than that. Making a full, traditional pot of coffee is both wasteful and too much temptation for me. When I came to terms with my limits in […]
