I had an entirely other story in mind for this week. Something about how, everywhere I go this month, someone can be found lamenting, “Where did summer go?”

Some time ago, the blog hosting site Wordpress, launched Foodpress, and finally solved a recipe mystery that has eluded me for 10 years.

Dear Darcie,
I enjoy casual dining out from time to time, and when I try something I really like, I make a bold attempt to replicate that dish at home. One of these dishes is butter chicken curry.

“Second star on the right and straight on till morning.” Or, if you’re a foodie, with an invitation to visit a culinary farm, just “Look for  the rows of purple kale, and turn right in.”

Life is but a (chicken) beach

There are some sights, so horrific, they ink themselves like murals on the insides of our eyelids.

One thing I’ve come to know for certain is that no matter how long you live in a place, you can never entirely get your roots out of the soil where you grew up.

It’s a Mother’s Day Life

I am not a mother. I am, however, a few months past 40, and have been married for 20 of those years. So naturally, speculation about how I arrived at this childless “condition” buzzes around me like the electric field of a bug zapper.
