Wonder Woman Movie Review Of Sorts W/O Spoilers

To give an “above average” (movie reference) review, I saw the film twice opening weekend at probably one of the best cinema experiences in the Pacific Northwest – the Cinerama in downtown Seattle. Opening night (Friday, June 2) I saw Wonder Woman with my good friend Ann, whom I have known since grade school. She […]

Becoming Wonder Woman

In my opinion, the best part of the movie Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice was Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman.

Uwajimaya

My husband and I have spent a great deal of time in Seattle.  This summer is proving to be quite spectacular, as there is no finer place than The Emerald City on a gorgeous warm summer day.  With the Puget Sound, Mt. Rainer, the Olympic Mountains, Pike Place Market, a ton of amazing restaurants as […]

Squash Blossoms

Zucchini flower, squash blossom, or courgette flower are the flowers of the zucchini plant.  I first had them at Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill in Las Vegas some years ago.  The second time I had them was in Rome.  The most common and favorite Italian way of preparing them is to stuff them with ricotta or […]
