I’m reaching the age where I’m caught between geezers and kids these days. Here are some things I don’t understand.
I love tea, though I didn’t really start drinking it until I was an adult. As a child, tea was either sweet tea or chamomile. I didn’t really care for either. Once in college, I started branching out, since I never developed a taste for coffee. Finally in grad school, I really took to tea. […]
I am a hippy, dippy, long skirt and Birkenstock wearing, soap making, farmer’s market shopping, non-profit working, dyed in the wool, bleeding heart liberal. I also love to shop. And I love to eat. And I enjoy my cushy life. But, do I enjoy my cushy life to the detriment of others?
I’ve been up since 4 a.m. and the only thing that’s keeping me going is a steady stream of caffeinated beverages. Clearly, I have coffee on my mind.
Like in many parts of North America, July in my home city is shaping up to be one of the hottest on record. As a result, my current summer job as a gardener for an all-female gardening and landscaping crew has become a very hot and very sweaty time. Now, I am a tea fanatic, […]

Several years ago, a good friend stayed at my apartment for the weekend. That Sunday morning, I woke up to discover she was already in the kitchen making scones. They were simple! They were easy! They were delicious! She had the recipe committed to memory, and she taught it to me.
I don’t know about you, but I think it’s been a long week. It’s been the kind of long week that leaves me wondering about the fastest and most efficient ways to pump caffeine into my system. It’s been the kind of long week that makes me wonder if maybe I could shotgun some Coca-Cola […]
So I read Nichole’s “Cheering Brittana“ headline from my phone yesterday and thought it said “Cheering Brittania” and I got all excited that maybe we were going to be talking about tea and biscuits.
Did you know that all of my lunchtime poll ideas are taken from things I think about in my real life? Shocking but true. That’s why today’s lunchtime poll is: Coffee or Tea? Both? Neither? Do you make it at home or buy it? I’m only a relatively recent inductee into the Coffee Drinker’s Club. […]
