The Power Of “No”

The May 2008 issue of Esquire magazine had a great article by Tom Chiarella bout the power of the word “No”. It got me thinking about how I sometimes feel the need to explain myself when all I really need to do is say “No” and shut up.

Check it out & let me know your thoughts.

The Right Tool For The Job

Most of my friends know one of my passions is cooking.  Well, actually it’s food in general.  Some people eat to live, but I live to eat.  I really enjoy learning new techniques and cooking for friends and family.

One of my favorite kitchen tools is an 8″ chefs knife from a Japanese company called Global.  A great knife makes all the difference when it comes to prepping a great meal.  The Global line of knives features a one-piece design that not only makes it very to clean, it feels great in the hand after a lot of use.

A sharp knife is a safe knife, so I make sure to use a honing steel before each use as well as take advantage of affordable sharpening services from the local gourmet store at least twice a year.

If you’re in the market for a new set of kitchen knives or you’re looking for a perfect gift for the cook in your family, I really recommend you check out Global knives (available at fine kitchen stores and on-line).

Just watched “Juno” last night…

WOW, what a great movie!  Juno had me from the very beginning.  Great cast, great story & quirky music that was very appealing.

If you’re looking for something a little different, give it a try & let us know what you thought of it!
