So for the last few years I’ve been watching Halloween Wars on the Food Network. It combines two of my favorite hobbies which is cooking and art. One of the things they do that I’ve been wanting to try for years is pumpkin sculpting. Pumpkin sculpting is much different than carving.

Dear Parents of Nerdy Kids,

What I’m about to write to you, is what I wish I had been able to write to my family as a kid. This is not a letter to bash, or be mean, but hopefully to shed some light on how I felt, and possibly how your kid might feel being considered a nerd. I’m writing this with the perspective that you as parents want the best for your child as I think my mother wanted for me, but perhaps you may not “get” or understand them all the time, and they may not even know how to explain to you how or why they are nerdy. Hopefully, this letter will give you some relief in understanding the awesome kid you have. Read more

Can’t immediately fly to Italy for a nice romantic dinner? No problem, just bring Italy to your kitchen. I got this recipe from a book called “The Gourmet Cookbook” by Ruth Reichl. While the dish itself is bound to inspire romance, I also suggest it be accompanied by some red wine, crusty bread, candles, and Lucciano Pavarotti’s Greatest Hits.
