A crisphead lettuce fan revels in the shelf-stable character of the crunch
As my fellow food lovers struggle to adjust to pantry cooking or wait in line for hours, six feet apart, at Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods, I have to admit I’m somewhat dispassionate about their hunger for fresh produce. I, too, still want a salad with my meals. Or for my meals. But by salad, I mean lettuce. And by lettuce, I mean iceberg.

You’ve probably seen the pop-up advertisements on social media for comfy work-from-home outfits. Or you’ve gotten the notices from your kids’ colleges that the belongings they were forced to leave behind will be transferred directly to new room assignments in the fall. Or you’ve been walking, running, or biking in threadbare activewear you just realized you purchased too many years/pounds/jobs/kids ago.

The W Washington DC is a top pick for sightseers, located just steps from the White House and Washington Monument with historic architecture and contemporary interiors, but standard rooms are small and oddly shaped
The oldest hotel in Washington, DC, this 1917 Beaux-Arts building boasts a coveted location right on the National Mall, only 1,300 feet from the White House, and 2,950 feet from the Washington Monument.
Thanks to a $55 million renovation, art is everywhere, including the walls of the double-story lobby, the headboards of beds, and even hanging over the bar.
Every night, my husband walks naked into the house, save for a towel wrapped around his hips. He pauses at the edge of the living room, which is about thirty feet from where I sit writing in my office, a converted Florida room. He lifts one hand in greeting, then heads up the stairs as if in invitation.
But it’s not an invitation. And it’s not because we are – or should I say were – empty nesters with two college-age kids now living again at home with us. A neurologist who works at a large pu...
At first, back in August, I was petrified
Kept thinking I could never live without a kid to drive
But then I spent so many happy hours thinking I’d sure been wrong
Those shots are strong
And I learned how to hit a bong
But now you’re back
From college space
I just came home to find you here with that nasty beard upon your face
I would’ve downsized when I could’ve and not given you a key
If I’d have guessed you’d be back mid-term with a backpack of la...
Sometimes weird, often wacky, but always wonderful — that's Key West in an alliterative nutshell.
The southernmost island of the United States, Key West lies in the temperate Florida Straits surrounded by lush, tropical foliage with paradisiacal weather and warm waters ideal for diving, fishing, paddle boarding and more. Key West is also a port of call for cruise ships, and famously only 90 miles from Cuba.
Most of us know how prepared meal delivery services work, even if we've never used one: Someone puts together a well-balanced meal of your choice. Someone else delivers it. All you have to do is store it and heat it up, if it requires cooking, and dispose of the container.
In normal times, if restaurant dining, delivery, and home cooking were a Venn diagram, then prepared meal delivery services would be one of those wedges where the circles meet.
Members of the food community know that in this time of Instagram influencers and Yelp reviews, restaurant criticism is a dying art. The loss of former Sun Sentinel restaurant reviewer John Tanasychuk hammers that point home for every diner in South Florida.
Tanasychuk passed away at the age of 61 from pneumonia on March 17. He had been fighting lung cancer for the past several years. He is survived by his husband, Steve Levin, his sisters Barbara Tanasychuk and Cathy Tanasychuk, and his fath...
