Anyone who knows me knows that I love Indian food. I love spicy, curried foods from India. I was introduce to Indian foods over 15 years ago and I have been a fan ever since. My very dear friend Russell shares this passion for Indian food as well, so it is a treat to catch up with him and go to his favorite spot in New York for a culinary feast.

Cake Boss Take 2

I just happened to be in Hoboken, NJ trying to retrieve a lost item that I left on New Jersey Transit and as I was leaving I turned the corner and noticed that there was no line to get into Carlo’s Bake Shop. The last time I visited Carlo’s, owned by The Cake Boss, the line was a couple of very long blocks long and it took me an hour and a half just to get to the door.

Sista ToFunky In The Dominican Republic

I recently travelled to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic to attend a friend’s destination wedding and take a short vacation. My flight in business class on United Airlines was rather nice.

Once I landed, I disembarked the plane on the tarmac and walked to the terminal.
