I have been making trips to New Orleans with my family my whole life, so it is with some authority that I tell you: Do not visit New Orleans in the summer!  It is positively ungodly hot.

The perfect time is in the Fall.  Or the day after Christmas.  But you have to leave before Sugar Bowl, before the prices skyrocket.  You will notice really huge young men wandering the French Quarter on your last day.  Spring is lovely, too....

Now I’m going to talk about a business trip and you’re going to wonder what it has to do with this recipe.  Trust me, we’ll get there.

So I had to travel for work recently, and, true to form, the person who makes travel arrangements for our company booked me in a hotel that was NOT the conference hotel.  Sigh…  But this time, though I initially cursed her name (as I made the 15-block walk to my morning conference;  “It’s only 3...

Day 3

Wall of Waffles, Flowers Galore, and Sleep No More

Brunch in Midtown
WAFFLES, I texted my friend Joy.  I need waffles.  So we met at Petite Abeille in Midtown where lo and behold, an entire wall of waffle choices awaited.  I got the plain Belgium with maple syrup and the omelette of the day with tomatoes, asparagus and goat cheese, as Joy and I discussed old friends an...

Oh, New York!  For all your frustrations, I never get tired of you.  I try to go to New York at least once a year – and manage it about every other year.  The impetus for this trip was the inevitable closing of Roundabout Theatre’s Cabaret at Studio 54, with the inimitable Alan Cumming reprising his role as Emcee. When they announced the show would be closing March 29th, no matter what, I decided I just couldn’t miss a chance...
