The Lady in The Catbird Seat

July 2012

The moment you step off the elevator at The Catbird Seat, an audacious culinary venture that opened in Nashville last fall, an extraordinary sensory adventure begins to unfold. You pass through a psychotropic wormhole of unsettling kinetic stripes into a space that becalms the eye.

The Gluten-Free Revolution

July 2012

Throughout history, Americans have fought for freedom, for territories, for religion, and for love. Nowadays, we seem to be fighting for healthier, longer, more fulfilling lives, bringing the revolution home to an internal level. One of the most recent fights on our hand is a confusing one, because it goes against much of what we’ve been taught our entire lives.

Culinary Road Trip: Eat Your Way to IKEA and Back

Thirty Days Of ... KRANK NASHVILLE!

He’s not singing to you. In fact, he has a ring on his finger—proof that he’s singing about a woman he married years ago. Sure, he’s belting out a love song and looking in your general direction, but the woman he loves? She’s leading a relatively normal life, waiting for him to come home.

Pioneering Ladies of Music Row

Mothers and Daughters Without Borders

May 2012

I love my mother, but she drives me crazy.

 – Every living creature


The mother-daughter three-act drama:

Act 1. Little girls want to be just like mommy;

Act 2. Teenaged girls regard moms as archaic, clueless eunuchs; and

Act 3. Young adult females regain their prepubescent vision, seeing moms as goddesses with answers … and BFFs.

My 3 Moms

May 2012

Many of us are lucky to have one wonderful mother. I have had three: my mom, my stepmom and former mother-in-law. While they lived very different lives, all of them were strong women who greatly influenced who I am today.

Stepmommy Dearest: Stepmothers Speak Out About One of Society's Most Underappreciated and Least Understood Jobs

May 2012

In most ways, Molly* bears no resemblance to most Americans’ image of a “traditional” woman. The 37-year-old teacher is an accomplished athlete, a Fulbright Scholar with a Master’s degree, and a fluent Spanish-speaker who’s lived abroad and traveled widely.
