I am a part-time freelance writer and full-time mother living in the Chicago suburbs. My life is fairly boring by hipster standards, as it consists mainly of avoiding the grocery store, cleaning up after various pets, trying to figure out how to feed my son healthy food without me having to cook anything and pre-ordering movies from the Disney … more

reviewed Sweet Valley High. March 15, 2009
Sweet Valley High series,
I started reading the Sweet Valley High series when I was in junior high. My mom didn't approve of that kind of literature, so I bought the books on the sly and kept them in the back of my bookcase. They …
reviewed Bridget Jones's Diary (book). March 15, 2009
Book Cover
As a professional journalist, I was probably unjustifiably influenced by Bridget's complete and total incompetence in my field. I found her inability to write complete sentences insulting, and wondered …
reviewed Primo Eurobath. March 12, 2009
My son is three now, but we used this bathtub for him until he was about 1 1/2 and it was a great product. It's basically all one piece so it doesn't require any assembly or generate worries about collapse. …
reviewed Jane Austen. March 11, 2009

reviewed Candy Land (board game). March 09, 2009
Old School Candy Land
This game has been a classic for generations, and with good cause. From my point of view, as a mom who bought Candy Land for my son before he turned three, it's one of the better games for young children. …
reviewed Lush. March 07, 2009
inside the store
I love Lush as a concept (fresh, handmade, eco-friendly) and as a seller of soaps and bath bombs, though I've had less luck with some of its face/toner and lotion products. Their soaps are gloriously …
reviewed Trader Joe's. March 07, 2009
Trader Joe's
I'm a big fan of Trader Joe's grocery stores, although I can''t shop there exclusively because they don't have the, er, bad, unhealthy junk food I like. For example, Pepsi. Hey, a girl occasionally needs …

Well, what did you think of the new Star Trek film?
May 13, 2009
I liked it! I haven't had a chance to put a review up on Lunch.com (not sure I will, I'm sure there are tons of them up already), but here's a link to the one I wrote for my scifi TV site: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art21709.asp

Yep, I do the same thing: soy sauce marinates fish or meat very well. here's a really cool marinade I found for on the NY Times website: Check out Frank's Steak and tell me if your mouth doesn't water http://video.nytimes.com/video/playlist/styl...ndex.html#1194837897096
