Managing Stress when you feel Crushed by It


There are many days I roll out of bed, and I want to sell everything and move to a small coastal town in Italy near my family where everything is just simpler. Why do we as a culture put so much pressure on ourselves? We are like ants... moving from place to place with a mission, but that mission ge...

We all remember when we were that age. No one wants to stand out and be different in a negative light, especially when you are a teenager. Here is the stepwise approach to managing this common dermatologic annoyance.

What Do I Wanna Be When I Grow Up?


It hit me a few days ago when I was talking to a colleague at work about our career paths. He said "I have a history of severe depression. Why in the world did I pick a career where people are whining and complaining all the time?" (He is a former surgical Physician Assistant). He did go o...

July 27th is National Crème Brûlée Day!

One of my favorite desserts of all-time is crème brûlée. That first break through the flame-caramelized layer of sugar is so incredibly satisfying, as is that sweet vanilla bean taste. Years ago while gazing the spice section of a local market, a small packet of cooking lavender caugh...

Teaching our Kids to be Patient in a World of Instant Gratification

I don't know what happened. As I've gotten older, I have less of a filter on my mouth. I also have more confidence and less patience. For example: I'm in a packed grocery store and the woman in front of me checking out is having a conversation with the cashier like she's at a local happy-hour, compl...

Summer is in Full Swing

The post-Covid era is now full of remote working employees. It started off as a way to isolate and socially distance, but employers have realized that the system works in many situations and it is cost-effective, especially with overhead costs like rent, insurance, and utilities. So if ...

Blender Crêpes

The history of crepes dates back to 13th century Brittany, France. It seems a housewife there accidentally dribbled some thin porridge onto a hot, flat cooktop. Since people back then weren’t inclined to waste even their smallest cooking mistakes, she ate it. The rest, as they say, is history.

In an effort to overhaul my current diet I have been doing some research on healthier options for breakfast and snacks throughout the day. I'm just not a "shake" person. Purely liquid diets do nothing for me personally and I'm not actually looking to diet... I'm just looking to eat in a he...

We all have those moments when the passive aggressive police come out and try to get under your skin. Remember: passive-aggressive behavior is driven by the feeling of being powerless. Don't feed into it because it will only encourage their behavior. It gives them what they want—to fe...

Having played sports myself, I am proud my daughter is an athlete. Living in a digital world has certainly contributed to the obesity epidemic. Kids just don’t want to go outside and play anymore.
