A Burger Inspired by Eggs Florentine

[Editor's Note: I love burgers that borrow from the flavors of breakfast—one of my favorite options is to top my burger with cheddar cheese, bacon, and a runny fried egg. But this version, which features a poached egg, wilted spinach, and hollandaise, also strikes me as a worthy addition to the breakfast-inspired burger repertoire. --Genie]...more

Fast forward to last weekend when Noah wore his King’s Island t-shirt to ride the coasters at Hershey Park here in Pennsylvania. While waiting in line, a random woman told him that he shouldn’t be wearing “a shirt like that.” Neither Dave or I was with him at the time, and he was confused. He asked her if she meant that it wasn’t appropriate because it was a King’s Island shirt and he was at Hershey Park. She replied, “No -- I mean something MUCH different.” And she walked away....more

Good grief, I cannot belief that woman made such an issue about your son's shirt. Clearly, she ... more

Dancing with the Stars Recap: The Top 4... Drama, Injuries and Dancing

They're all pretty good and/or charming, so a enjoyable time was had by all last night. Last night, each couple in the Top Four had to dance two dances and then do a brand-new "Winner Takes All Cha Cha." Is it just me, or have they been especially into the Cha Cha this year? On the one hand, you can see how each of the stars has improved significantly over the season. On the other hand, they do seem to be tired. There were tears and tribulations last night, and not-quite-Joe-Theisman-level-injury-footage that we had to watch one time too many....more

Good Friday: Reflection and Sobriety

For some reason as an adult, Easter has always been fraught with fear for me. Next to Christmas, it's the only other holiday where shops are closed and everyone is on holidays. I have always felt the need to 'get away' over Easter and fill up the time holidaying somewhere else. Looking back over all my adult Easters, there has rarely been one where I have been at home, and maybe only one or two where I have been sober the entire weekend....more

I think this is probably a very meaningful Easter for you. I appreciate your ability to share ... more
