Best Indian-Cooking Website Ever

My new favorite cooking site is Manjula’s Kitchen, which from a digital professional’s point of view is ideally organized and contains all the content you could want for Indian cooking info.

Done With Finals; Time For The News

Though I was busy finishing up Winter A for the past week, it doesn’t mean I haven’t kept up with the world. (Sage RSS sidebar = a favorite of mine.) So here’s a burst of opinion: My newest senator Roland Burris grows more as an embarrassment each day, but what’s even more embarrassing is the […]

Making Me Miss DC

I do miss the cheese fries and cherry milkshakes. And G and I sat at that same table the last time we ate at Ben’s. It seems this is a month old, but it’s all good.
