Despite traveling a decent amount, I don’t write many travel guides or blog posts. There are a few exceptions; I’ve written one for New Orleans, a city that I’ve visited more than a couple times and love dearly.

As someone who grew up in Florida and experienced about as much warm weather as one can take, I’ve grown to pretty much despise being in heat and humidity, with two exceptions. One: If I am at the beach or pool with a cold beverage in my hand. Two: If I’m in New Orleans. The […]

For most of my adult life, I’ve considered myself an average cook. Could I cook enough recipes to keep things interesting and edible? Yes.
