  1. I was born wanting to do things precisely. A perfectionist, detail orientated, rule follower. These characteristics, as you probably know, are a double-edged sword. I never faltered from A marks throughout all of my schooling, went on to play Division 1 golf in college, secured an elusive pharmaceutical sales position at the age of 22, and …

  2. Winter’s coming. This line means something entirely different for Game of Thrones fans, but for those of us in the northern part of the country, it has always meant a welcome shift in the pace of life. Frankly, I’ve been waiting all winter for the cold and the snow, but all we’ve really had here is …

  3. Man’s relationship with fire is about as old as language itself. Even with a multitude of wild, raw food available, primitive humans evolved to cook food– first for caloric reasons, then for taste preference, and eventually for efficiencies. Harvard biologist Richard Wrangham believes fire fueled the human brain to adapt and develop what are now considered …

  4. A while back, a bunch of really fantastic people (who are also kind enough to be my friends) got together for an epic Burgerfest that featured some really delicious cheese. You might be thinking this is a tad summery for October, BUT friends, I’ll tell you that you are wrong. While the cooler temps are upon …

  5. While in San Fran for a work trip, the lovely Anne Sage and I got together for our first “in person” meeting. I’ve been cyber-stalking Anne for years and she is as funny, generous and creative in person as she is online. Anne asked me to be part of Nikole Herriot’s fantastic series, “for the love …

  7. We have an extra special In The Kitchen feature today! Wit & Delight is being featured on Glitter Guide TODAY, and as part of the feature, we made a really delicious breakfast to share with you and GG readers. It’s exciting to share a little glimps into my life & home, captured by my talented and …

  8. This pizza is the result of going to the grocery store while famished. Stopping in after going for a run, I had an agenda- to make a lot of pizza. This is where my stomach starts calling the shots. I recently made a visit to the new MPLS restaurant Butcher & The Boar, where I shared …

  9. In the Kitchen is back! This week I’m sharing a really easy baked egg dish. I stumbled on the recipe via Pinterest, and the next thing I know I’m at the store buying the ingredients. The recipe below serves one hungry adult. Pesto Potato Egg Bake Ingredients: 1 medium sized potato 2 eggs pesto blue cheese …

  10. I’m not one to follow a recipe. Most often, I get inspiration from blogs, Pinterest and cookbooks, then I just kinda wing it. Here are three such meals: Breakfast // Caramelized Grapefruit Cut a ripe grapefruit in half. Place on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with sugar. Place under the broiler until lightly browned (5-10 mins) Lunch …

  11. Let’s talk about toast. I love the stuff. Toasted, grilled, fried, freshly baked, you name it and I’m all over it. Yet, what I like most about toast is how handy it is. Toast is basically a tasty vehicle delivering a variety of different toppings and flavors to your mouth, all in a nice portion-controlled size. …

  12. Are we all enjoying the decadent tastes of the season? Who else is feeling a little regretful for having a chunk of cookie dough for dinner? I might be all alone on that one, but readers- I’m feeling a little sluggish from my baking adventures. So for the past 2 weeks, I’ve made a point to …

  13. Rarely do I miss the opportunity to start the day with something hearty and healthy. I have a great affinity for breakfast foods and take my love for eggs very seriously. This recipe is currently my favorite way to jazz up a fried egg. The tzatziki sauce is the real hero of this open faced sandwich …
