Two years later

March 11, 2013

I wasn’t going to write anything for the anniversary of the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster that struck Japan exactly two years ago. But then I realized that It’s important to write and talk about it. If for no other reason than to make sure those who are still building their lives back up are [...]

March 8, 2013

Before I get into this Cocktail Friday post, I have to say that I am humbled at the response to Set the Table. It is amazing knowing how many of you stuck around while I sorted things out. Between moving away from Japan, moving into and renovating a house, and everything that [...]

Fried Okra

September 3, 2012

I remember when my Grandma Smith taught me to make fried chicken. I must have been about 13 or 14 at the time and my family was in the middle of one of our annual trips to Cookeville, Tennessee. At my young age, I was not fully aware of how much I loved cooking, although [...]

Slowly Coming Back

August 31, 2012

Life changes every day. Some changes are so small they go completely unnoticed while others cause an uncontrollable tidal wave, sweeping through every part of what made your life “normal”.

Corn on the Cob with Herb Butter

August 30, 2012

One of the biggest things I missed about home when I lived in Tokyo (and now living in Denver) were evenings spent on my parents’ deck, looking out at the soft summer light kissing each blade of green grass and casting shadows across the fields as the sun set. That will always be one of [...]
