  1. I wish!!!! I couldn’t convince him. That said, while his cooking is amazing, he’s not big into plating so I’m sure he’d have been outclassed. Very excited to watch this though!
  2. Had dinner last night at Thacher & Rye, Bryan Voltaggio’s new(ish) place in Frederick and just have to say it was one of the best meals I’ve had in 30 years here in the DMV (and I did dine at Volt way back when but this was better). Seriously, not a single misstep. Highlights included the best lasagna I’ve ever had (and grew up in NYC with some great legit Italian spots), a fried soft shell crab appetizer with fish sauce, pork tenderloin and some great dessert sides ... I’m still full 24 hours later. And WILL go back before we move to Cali ... this is short-listed for “GOTTA have one more
  3. As a loooooongtime Primetimer and all of its former permutations, I’m popping in on a show I’m just starting to watch for admittedly selfish reasons (other than adoooooring Lauren Graham). Through a weird series of connections, my longtime musician hubby has had a bunch of his songs picked up by TV shows which is admittedly kinda thrilling (especially when it’s shows we love, which has happened) ... but for the first time apparently TWO songs are landing in one episode which we think is tomorrow’s episode of this show! We’ll be watching ... me especially because if indeed the in
  4. Maybe Tommy? If indeed Charles is gone (damn you, show) I’d think she might need a place to stay for a bit where she’s not confronted with that memory every day/night.
  5. I was thinking the same thing. It took me many years and hypnotherapy to get over my own phobia of bees ... believe it or not I’ve never been stung in 60 years but who knows? I AM deathly allergic to raw honey but no clue if there’s a connection there. I’ve always had a huge aversion to all things mushroom and never liked Campbell’s Cream of Tomato soup, but my mom was one of the quirkiest/pickiest eaters I ever knew and Campbell’s Cream of Tomato soup with a grilled cheese sandwich was her dinner of choice at least three nights a week, so I was glad to see Chris win for his take on MY ch
  6. And I’ll add that what this tells me is that said focus groups are frumpy women of a certain age who feel young and beautiful compared to those four ...
  7. Well, I’m excited to see that Cliff Crooks is hosting a new show, Chefs Boot Camp, on Food Network. Looking forward to adding this to my summer-light watch list!
  8. My unpopular opinion: I wouldn’t care (or even mind) if they put Mer back into her coma for good. I find her boring and unappealing. That said, I wonder if the fact that her waking comments were both responses to Richard and Jo’s comments of the last few ... minutes? Hours? Days? ... and not about her kids could be teasing some sort of larger memory loss of her life outside the hospital when she DOES come to ... Zola who? Ellis who? Bailey who?
  9. I. Can’t. Wait. For starters, I absolutely LOVED his book. Plus, no pun intended (and I hope I’m using term correctly) I have stanned LaKeith Stanfield ever since I saw Short Term 12 when it was first released.
  10. My probably unpopular opinion (so please don’t throw rocks at me) is that I think he was somewhat unfairly made the primary — read: only — fall guy for Marcelgate.
  11. Re: why Mer and Derek have not actually touched/hugged on the beach (yet), I have a completely unfounded theory which may have been slightly confirmed by LAST week's ep ... I think that if you saw them touch, it would mean that she had crossed over. Unless I missed it, she never touched DeLuca either, right? (Though that would not have necessarily proved/disproven my theory, since they were both alive at that point as far as we know). But when he ran down the beach and threw himself into his mother's arms, I knew he was dead and probably when he died. I think if we get a scene where sh
  12. Since I saw this bumped, I just happen to be sitting on my porch for the first time this year with a reread of one of my very very favorite series that I somehow forgot to mention ... the five-book series by Megan McCafferty that starts with “Sloppy Firsts” ... and my daughter is doing the reread simultaneously (also her favorite series). I’m gobsmacked that this series has not been made into a YA/teen series.
  13. THANK YOU!!! This was driving me crazy. I knew he was familiar but couldn't place it.
  14. HELL yes. Looking back at my vacation pix from around 1998 or so (a general guess without going to figure out exact dates but my daughter is wearing a Spice GIrls T-shirt) ... my SIL lived there part of the year (exchange professor at UBelize) and was building a home in Caye Caulker so had become part of the community. We went out deep sea fishing with a friend of hers, a guide named Jimmy who looks like he could be Ryan and Harris' MUCH handsomer cousin.
  15. Discovery+ is as confusing to me as HBO Max. I think it takes a very "special' kind of person to look at the array of options on Discovery+ and fall in love. It turns out I am that very "special" kind of person. And while Mr. Snappy was ready to make fun of me today when we decided to look at everything it offered, it turned out that he, too, is a very "special" kind of person, albeit somewhat closeted (SO many good food and travel channels!)
