A View on being Gluten-Free

February 4, 2013 | By jordan | 0 Comments

There is, at once, a lot to say and not very much to say about Elisabeth Hasselbeck. She is the rare bird that leapt from reality TV stardom (via Survivor: The Australian Outback) to hold a permanent position on morning television. I could tell you how she is the conservative counterpoint to the rest of […]

A Clueless Vegan – Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

January 21, 2013 | By jordan | 0 Comments

Clueless, the omnipresent movie of my tweenage years, was a touchstone of sorts. Alicia Silverstone absolutely slayed the role of Cher (in an Oscar worthy performance IMHO) and practically invented a new category of the American teen: smart, pretty, sweet and rich Valley Girl. Overnight, Alicia’s (er..Cher’s) influence dominated teen mall culture. My peers started […]

Happy Juice Year

January 11, 2013 | By jordan | 0 Comments

Well, friends, it’s the New Year! Happy 2013. For me, 2012 was like every year prior – awash in great rivers of chocolate and fields of pastry. And I know I will make several resolutions this month and break them by February, but I am determined to put in some effort nonetheless. This year’s big […]

Amy Sedaris Snaps

November 29, 2012 | By jordan | 0 Comments

Yes, Thanksgiving is over (though, oddly, I still feel like I might be digesting the ungodly amount of turkey consumed) and the “bigger” Holidays are already upon us. From here on out, it is candy canes and peppermint, and garland and COOKIES!…mountains and mountains of cookies. And if I am going to make holiday inspired […]

Thankful for Coolio. And Sweet Chocolate Potato Pie.

November 16, 2012 | By jordan | 0 Comments

Here are the only two things I remember thinking after watching the movie Dangerous Minds: 1. I really wanted to be Michelle Pfeiffer’s student and 2. Gangster’s Paradise, the famed title track, made me want to be a rapper. Alas, some 15 years later, I am still not a rapper. And I nearly forgot about […]

MICHELLE OBAMA-Even Better the Second Time

November 7, 2012 | By jordan | 0 Comments

Yesterday, I was still deep in the midst of post-Sandy trauma before the realization of the election came into full view. It was, at that moment, that I did my duty as a proud American and dove into Michelle Obama’s famous cookie recipe – the one that took down the first prize in the (un)official […]

Valerie Bertinelli is Going to Save My Life

October 25, 2012 | By jordan | 0 Comments

Since bathing suit season is officially over, I have preoccupied my waking hours with devouring almost anything and everything. Over the fall and winter months, I will most likely gain 10 to 20 pounds and I will enjoy it. But it doesn’t have to be this way. I could make choices…smarter choices. For instance, I […]

Paltrow’s Perfection

October 18, 2012 | By jordan | 0 Comments

Gwyneth Paltrow leads an enviable and balanced life (her life is not a runaway train of tabloid fare). And she does everything….actress, blogger, mother, author, and (my personal fave) country western singer. She first won me over as “Young Wendy” in Steven Spielberg’s Hook and 20 years later she still reverberates charm, youth and innocence. […]

The Calm. The Storm. And the Cheesecake.

October 11, 2012 | By jordan | 0 Comments

When dark clouds approach Brooklyn (a not uncommon occurrence these past few months), I seek refuge. I am not a thunder and lightening guy. In fact, I am downright terrified of it. At least in Las Vegas (yes, born and raised in Sin City) I had the comfort of family to surround me during the […]

Desperate House Churros

October 4, 2012 | By jordan | 0 Comments

Fall is here (though it may feel like summer, it is most definitely fall and if the Weather Channel is to be believed, the actual weather will line up with the season by Sunday). It is my favorite time of year. I am a fall jacket/hard cider/pumpkin-y kind of guy. I am also a churro […]
