In which the author tells you how to run your life -- or at least how to make the most of the fun parts of it.

For instance, inside these pages you will learn how to weather a mortar attack in good spirits; how to avoid booking yourself on the Internet into a bed and breakfast full of twee quilts and dusty tchotkes; and how to plan a dinner party that will stun your guests with deliciousness and style and not destroy your will to live with the amount of work you have to do to pull it off.

These are things I know firsthand, and things people who know me often ask me about (though I usually just book them into bed and breakfasts myself -- identifying ruffled death traps is an acquired skill). I am almost always right about everything (food, style and travel-related, anyway, and often many other things) and if everyone would just do as I say, dinner would taste better, cupcakes would not be dry, your parties would be more fun (for you), and mortar attacks... well, they always suck. I can't do anything about them.

*except laundry. I can't manage my own laundry, much less yours.

White House Kitchen and Garden tour!

Although I am not paid a princely sum (as discussed earlier, I draw the same salary as Abe Lincoln's Secretary of War, not adjusted for inflation), my job as editor of Flavor has some excellent side benefits. To wit, a photo shoot in the White House kitchen, and a private tour of the garden. Check out our June/July issue, which I am putting the finishing touches on now. Sigh. Haven't you subscribed yet? Don't you want me to make as much as Herbert Hoover's Secretary of War? THIS WONT HAPPEN UNLESS YOU SUBSCRIBE.


Now you see me, now you don't.

The First Bee Hive. Turns out the White House carpenter is an amateur apiarist (?) so when they decided to keep bees he was all, !"ooh me me!"

The spinach, I have it on good authority, will appear on the Obama's personal table tonight.

I always thought it was spelled Bok Choy. But who am I to argue with the leader of the free world's garden label maker?
