The Best Food Movies

If I’m going to be real with you (all 3 of you who read this blog) – -blogging is hard. I have to think of something to cook interesting enough to blog about, cook it, remember to take pictures, edit and upload pictures, try to write something witty etc., etc.  And even though it all […]

Laura’s Rules of Entertaining

Considering that the holiday season is now winding down, I probably should have published this post sooner but, like many of you out there, I was very busy the past week with houseguests (my husband’s old room mate), entertaining (Christmas Eve dinner) and general holiday shenanigans (consuming lots of wine, playing Cards Against Humanity).  We […]

I’ve realized lately that a mark of my age exists in my Facebook news feed.

Cooking Show Drinking Games

I know a lot of people complain about the Food Network these days.  And I get it, they’ve changed. They are very much focused on reality shows that have to do with food than actual cooking.  But that’s why (in my opinion) they started the Cooking Channel–which has some excellent cooking shows, my favorite is “French […]

Welcome to À Point

So what is à point and why did I decide to name my blog after it?  To explain, I have to tell a brief story. In high school I saw the French movie Amèlie for the first time and instantly fell in love; not only with the movie but with the French culture as well.  […]
