Sunday Coffee with Joe Biden

Today’s Sunday Coffee Date is President Biden, who, after giving American’s his word (as a Biden) is leading the charge to vaccinate people against the Coronavirus. 100 Million Americans were vaccinated by President Biden’s 58th day in office, which by any metric is an impressive feat. Feeling grateful for this hopeful moment at the beginning …

Quinoa Green Bean Salad

The weather is starting to turn. The sun is out more, and even if I might need it again before spring really, truly is here to stay, I’ve packed up my parka. It’s time to look forward to longer, warmer days. Maybe even dream of a socially distant BBQ with an Aperol Spritz, some charred …

Sunday Coffee with Liza Minnelli

Today’s Sunday Coffee Date is Liza Minnelli who turned 75 on Friday. Liza is an icon, a legend and I’m so glad she’s here to receive her flowers and give us more to see. I love her rendition of Don’t Smoke in Bed on Inside the Actor’s Studio. Here’s a fun collection of some of …

Janelle Monáe Doesn’t Have Time

Happy to share another musician interview from my archives. This was originally published on Torontoist in June 2012. This time with the fantastic Janelle Monáe who has since we shared this conversation gone on to big things, not just as a musician but as an actor as well. Janelle Monáe doesn’t have time for your …

Sunday Coffee with John Goodman

Today’s Sunday Coffee Date is John Goodman, who I think everyone loves? You all love John Goodman, right? Do you have a favourite John Goodman role? Mine is Creighton Bernette in the first season of David Simon’s incredible HBO series Treme. Have you seen it? Goodman lives part of the time in New Orleans and …

Bar Cart Vibes

There’s something so classic about a bar cart. Grabbing a glass of wine out of the bottle sitting in your fridge sandwiched between last week’s wilted spinach and the third bottle of ketchup your kid has opened this week…where’s the glamour in that? Anyway, for whatever reason (gee, I wonder why?) I’ve had bar carts …

On Intention Setting

Do you set intentions for the month ahead or are you more of a go with the flow type person? For me I tend flip flop. Some seasons of my life I’ve been extremely goal oriented and others, well, let’s just say that asking me what I want for lunch at 11:59 am feels like …

Sunday Coffee with Andy Warhol

Today’s Sunday Coffee Date is Andy Warhol, who has been on my mind lately because I am getting increasingly excited about the upcoming AGO Exhibit on Studio 54. They’ve been holding some great online events to keep the anticipation going during quarantine. The Zoom panel with André Leon Talley and DVF was such fun. I …

Easy Louisiana Hot Sauce

I used to be very vanilla when it came to spice in my food. Mild, baby. It had to be M – I – L – D. Somewhere along the way, due to a combination of age, the expansion of my palette and all the time we spend in New Orleans I developed a serious …

Sunday Coffee with Saul Steinberg

Today’s Sunday Coffee Date is Saul Steinberg, pictured here is a breakfast scene from Steinberg’s and Inge Morath’s late 50’s early 60’s mask series. I read this profile of Steinberg in The New Yorker on a plane in 2014 and then almost immediately started this Pinterest board. Steinberg’s work is so varied and so delightfully …
