Pumpkins are for more than carving: Pumpkin Soup

Friday, October 17th, 2014

Pumpkins are delicious, nutritious, versatile, and cheap. Depending on the size of pumpkin you have, it can be stretched out over several meals. Everything but the stem poking out of the top is edible. Most recipes using pumpkin require its rind to be removed before cooking, but even that is edible, though generally too tough […]

Thursday, October 16th, 2014

I have compiled the following list of four shows, the criteria being that they are currently on television (currently airing a season or on the verge of one), and, to my mind, worth catching up on. This is not a “best of” or anything like that. The hope is that you’ll find at least one […]

A Frenchie in Newfoundland Part 2: My encounter with the police

Sunday, October 5th, 2014

You might be hungry for the continuation of my story since my last post. As I’m direct from France, I don’t yet know all the things you can or can’t (or are not supposed to) do. So, a few days after my arrival, I decided to go for a little run around Long Pond. It […]


TV Tuesdays with Rory: The Gotham pilot

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014
