Oh, how we love to be pampered. Foot rubs, massages and good food. What’s even better is when you can have that food served in your own home whenever you want – and there are no dishes to wash!
What you need is a private chef and Rahaf Amer is one of many chefs in the area who can do that for you. In this episode, she tells the story of what she does, how she does it, what she does when disaster strikes and the one dish she hopes she never has to make for a client.

Most blogs are about the people who write them, but Beth
Moncel’s blog makes people’s lives better and less expensive. It’s also her
full time job and she earns a living doing it.
Creating a profitable food blog is hard work. It demands not
only time in the kitchen, but writing skills, photography skills, social media
skills, computer skills, marketing skills and a lot more. If you’re going to
make money on a food blog, you have to put a lot of time into it. If you’re
going to make a living doing it, you’ll need lots of work, a little good luck
and maybe, just maybe you’ll be one of the few independent bloggers who can
call it their career.
Beth’s blog, is called Budget Byte$ and it is loaded with recipes and information on how to make great meals while saving money. In this episode, Beth tells how she went from a microbiologist to a food blogger and what she’s had to do to make it to the big time.
Bourdain used to all kinds of outrageous foods. It’s a good thing he talked
with the local folks before picking up a fork because parts of lots of food
contain cyanide. In fact, there are lots of foods that will flat out kill you.
Today we skip
the exotic killer foods such as the puffer fish and focus on what is probably
in your kitchen right now. This episode could mean life or death, so crank up
your audio player and prepare yourself to consider an all-water diet.
Someone has died and you notice that the person sitting next

plate club. It’s murder mystery dinner theater and sussing out clues and
identifying the villain is what the fun is all about.
In this episode, you’ll meet Joe Brown, an actor and comedian who performs with a Nashville dinner theater troupe. He shares with us how guests react to a play happening all around them and how they behave when they become part of the show. It’s not pretty.
