Cooking with clams makes me nervous — almost as nervous as I felt for Star Jones when Nene Leakes delivered her verbal beat down on Celebrity Apprentice. It was so intense that Obama went and nabbed Osama bin Laden in order to interrupt The Donald’s show. Props to the President for sparing us watching three black contestants leave the show in one episode. I see a trend at NBC. Watch your back Al Roker!!!!

As the saying from our childhood goes, first comes love, then comes marriage, right. To that end, Rachel Ray has created a vodka sauce that she guarantees will get you engaged. If only it were that simple. Rachel, have you forsaken your fans in the LGBT community who can’t marry the one they love, vodka sauce potion or not?

Most of the time, the reviews are all over the place, making it really difficult to differentiate from a good restaurant and a bad restaurant.

Rock Shrimp Cilantro Social Chef 600x400 Rock Shrimp with Cilantro PastaHave you ever gotten stuck at an airport hotel and knew you were doomed. You know right when your flight is canceled or your connection is missed you are going to have a miserable 12 hours. You get on a bus, shuttled to some strange place and all of your humanity is about to end. You enter the hotel lobby and everyone is tired, miserable, dirty and European. The excitement you had of going home has now disappeared.

Salam Aleikum! Not sure about you, but I love when the subject of religion comes up at dinner.  The second someone finds out you’re not Catholic or Jewish you get stoned with questions about your faith. So when I tell people I was raised Muslim the first question I get is “do you pray five times a day?” I don’t. So the next question is usually how can I call myself a Muslim? Really? I then ask them if they’re still virgins and saving themselves for marriage. Anyway, I’m getting pissed off right now so let me shut up before I end up like Theo van Gogh.

Roasted Zucchini Pasta 600x450 Roasted Zucchini with Cappellini

I once felt this pain that stretched from the left side of my neck to the center of my heart. I rushed to the doctor in a panic and forced myself to cough the entire cab ride. I once saw on Dateline that you could save yourself from dying during a heart attack by coughing. I begged to see the doctor and his lovely receptionist ordered me to sit down while she rolled her eyes and texted her friends. All the wrongs I’ve done in my life started filling my mind. The faces of all the people I have hurt, cursed out, gossiped about and made fun of flashed before me.
