Hi Rachel, Are you a football fan? If so, who are you rooting for in the playoffs...if not, why not? Thanks! Eric Dear Eric, I couldn’t care less about cheering for a team in the NFL Playoffs. Hey, I can’t be perfect, right? During my senior year of high school, my classmates and I brought home 5 Athletic State Championships. These were in Basketball, Dance Team, Softball, Lacrosse, and Track. I’m pretty sure the Soccer team played in the championship game that year, too, being the defending champions from the previous season and all. A diverse range of talents ruled the athletic landscape at my dear alma mater, and guess what? No... Read More
Dear Rachel, I'm a huge fan of your work. I just need to know one thing: If you could be any cookie, any cookie in the world, what cookie would you be and why. Best regards,-Alex Dear Alex, Without a doubt, I'd be the Neiman-Marcus $250 Chocolate Chip Cookie.

Dear Anonymous Brewer, Congratulations on your recent endeavor! Brewing beer (cider, wine, mead, or soda-pop) is a fun, fairly cost-effective hobby - often with delicious results. Brewing beer does generate a bunch of leftovers, though, and I can totally relate to your 3R's (Reduce/Reuse/Recycle) mentality. If you're looking for a relatively easy solution to most brewing byproducts, look into composting. If you're interested in something more, read on. In order to determine what you can... Read More
Hi Rachel, I am an avid hockey fan and would love to find a female companion to partake in some NHL games with me. Why do the only females I meet who like hockey look very, well, rugged? Also, to expand on this for those who currently have a girlfriend, how can you get them to enjoy this fantastic sport if they are currently opposed to it? - Confused Hockey Guy Rachel's Take: Well hello, Confused Hockey Guy! I want to begin by insisting that there are an abundance of hot females out there who LOVE going to hockey games and are just waiting to meet a respectable hockey loving dude like yourself...but they probably won’t know or care...
