Like millions of others, I suffer from sinus and allergy problems and according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, patients have already […]


One of my favorite foods is pizza. I can eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, hot or cold. I just love me some pizza. On Wednesday, I got to see what happens behind the scenes at Papa Murphy’s Pizza. You know, where the magic happens, where the pizza gods commune and all that good stuff. […]


This June will mark the third anniversary since my mom passed and it’s still hard to bear sometimes. However, because of my loss I have a renewed respect for the mother-daughter relationship.

I wanted to walk the streets of Harlem with these literary geniuses, have intense […]
