#NaBloPoMo – Day 2


It’s Day 2 and I’m back at it again with a fresh blog! What a streak!

First, let me start with a HUGE thank you to those  who dropped in to read my post from yesterday.

#NaBloPoMo: Day 1


The site BlogHer has thrown out the gauntlet to the blogosphere to write a post every day(!) for the month of November. Since I’m an idiot who likes to challenge myself to invariably fail, I signed up.

I’m looking at this as  a fun little exercise for me to get back in the ol’ swing of things. Or a fun exercise in how easily I give up. We’ll see. The premise is each day they provide writing prompts which I will most likely follow (unless I get some other good ideas) and you blog your silly little heart out!

Today’s the first day of the contest, and the prompt asks, “When you’re having a bad day with your mental health, what do you do to help yourself?” Continue reading “#NaBloPoMo: Day 1”

Watch Mario Eat: Apple Cheddar Biscuits


Today’s edition of Sunday Brunch featured a recipe for Apple Cheddar Biscuits. This is the second week the chef has prepared an apple dish, and I’m not so sure Mario was happy about it. If you don’t know by now, Mario loves ooey, gooey dishes and doesn’t care much for dry pasties. But, like the pro that he is, he kept his personal feelings in check and ate the whole thing. 

Here’s our favorite journalist digging deeper into the dish:

Watch Mario Eat: Monkey Bread Danish 


A little monkey business in the studio this week! Standing in front of a bacon mural (one of his faves), Mario gets down and dirty with this sticky sensation. Showcasing his love of finger foods, he unapologetically dug right in. We all know he isn’t afraid of a little goo.

This breakfast treat gets two huge, wet, sticky thumbs up!
