Inspiration Station: Meet The Parents

Wow.  It’s been forever since I’ve done one of these posts.  Hopefully it was worth the wait. The Dish: No fail, every time I’m eating Thai food (or even thinking about eating Thai food) I say that line “Jack talk Thai” from Meet The Parents.  And then giggle to myself because for some reason I…

Inspiration Station: When Harry Met Sally

Inspiration Station: The Fault in our Stars

This month’s “Inspiration Station” is built around “The Fault in Our Stars.”  I tried to wait for the movie mania to die down a bit and now feel like this is an appropriate time to revive one of the summer’s biggest hits. The Dish: Augustus tells Hazel that he’s using his wish on a trip…

Inspiration Station: Friends with Benefits

One of my New Years Resolutions was to revive this monthly feature…so here we go! The Dish: A take on street meat.  There is a string of scenes where Mila Kunis’ character is trying to convince JT’s character to move to NYC by showing him all the amazing things about the city, ranging from a…
