The Alarm Clock (or Nuclear Reactor) of Doom

I don’t wake to regular alarm clocks. I never have, even when I was a child. Luckily, the musical alarm on my phone (which is about a foot from my head) wakes me up. As a matter of fact, it wakes me up at 6:00, 6:09, 6:18 and 6:27. If I don’t get up at 6:27, my husband calls me from downstairs and makes me get out of bed.

I’m not really a morning person.

THE Buffalo Chicken Dip

Dish of dip right out of the ovenIf you’ve read the last few Kowalski books, you might remember seeing Gavin’s Buffalo Chicken Dip mentioned a few times. Why? Because, since the first time I was coerced into trying it at my sister’s house, I’ve loved it. Madly.

Why coerced? This is an ingredient list I wouldn’t touch with a ten-foot fork. I don’t care for hot sauce and blue cheese dressing makes me gag. Literally. I can’t remember how they first got me to try it, … Read More »
