Any noxious stench emanating from Capitol Hill over the weekend was probably only coincidental to the cinchona bark boilin’up in my kitchen. I was in mad-scientist mode, you see; preparing homemade tonic syrup for some seasonally inappropriate gin and tonics. Probably the smell will come out of… MORE

When insomnia drags me rudely up out of sleep, I flip on the radio to the BBC. The BBC relaxes me, more or less, depending on how horrific the news is. I listen to the reassuring English voices, and for the rest of the night, I'm drifting in and out. The effect is that I wake up with a head… MORE

On the short list of things long suspected never to have encouraged a person’s positive mental health, we would surely find absinthe. One clue that it’s not entirely intended for human consumption? The name absinthe likely derives from a Greek word meaning “undrinkable” (apsinthion). Put that… MORE

The playoffs are over and the Colts and Saints are left standing. From the beginning of the season, I hoped that the Seahawks would make it to the Super Bowl (this happens at the beginning of every football season). Since they didn’t, Brett Favre was my fall back plan – doesn’t he seem like the… MORE

So it’s the new year then. The last of a much maligned decade. The aughts really oughta’ve been better. I can’t exactly recall what I expected from them. For me personally, the aughts got off to a rocky start: I lost my job right out of the gate, a casualty of the tech bust. And the decade was… MORE

Last summer I gave up coffee. I went from two to four cups a day to zero. It sucked. Actually, I gave up all caffeine, which meant ditching black tea, my usual afternoon buzz, as well. I was hoping to alleviate some of the digestive woes I was suffering, and I hoped the result would be worth… MORE

I should point out up front that I am not an imbecile. If we must, we can agree to disagree on that point. But the thing of it is, I am frequently bewildered by simple, ordinary things. I am, it’s safe to say, in danger of losing the thread -- or worse yet, of never grasping it to begin… MORE

When the weather outside is cold, make hot cocoa. Coconut Peanut Butter Cup Hot Cocoa, that is. Never heard of it? Well good, 'cause as far as I know I'm the first one to come up with it (the coconut part, not the peanut butter part). There are lots of peanut butter hot chocolate/hot cocoa… MORE

I am from China, where you can see bubble tea/milk tea stands everywhere. What I really miss is a cup of good milk tea.  After I graduated from college, I worked in a city for one year where there was a certain chain milk tea store I really loved. Unfortunately, after I moved to the… MORE
