What do you do when you're not on-air at 106.7?
I do voice-overs, fix things around my house, and I cook.
What do you cook?
I'm currently in a Tex Mex phase, but I also love Italian, Greek and Arabic food.
How did you get into Arabic food?
Well, my family background is Middle Eastern. We're also big travelers, and often visit that part of the world.
Where was your last Middle Eastern trip?
To Tunisia. All the tourist info is in French, so you'd better brush up before you go! The food is super spicy, and all about tuna and eggs.
Where else have you been recently?
Sailing in the Caribbean, between Antigua & Barbuda and Guadeloupe. There's nothing like being on a 42' boat in the middle of the ocean.
Our boat, Zia, anchored off the coast of Terre-De-Haut, Guadeloupe
Honestly, I don't even eat Big Macs--I'm a vegetarian. But, I do like what's in the secret sauce...it would probably would make a veggie burger taste a whole lot better.

Energy drinks may get us going, but apparently, they're also ruining our teeth. Dentists say they cause irreversible damage in less than 5 days, and brushing may make it worse! If you or your kids are fans of energy drinks, read this and think twice.
According to a recent survey, only 20% of British women have ever baked a cake. I wonder, have you? I think I've made two in my lifetime. In fact, most of us are so busy that we wouldn't even know where to start. Active yeast, pastry flour, springform pans...thank goodness for the local bakery.
I thought we'd try to remedy the situation with a quick primer on Get Connected. On an upcoming show we'll speak with skilled baker Sahar Arafat-Ray, a.k.a. "Tart Queen", about baking basics and how to get a little homemade in our own homes. I'd love to add your questions to the show. Please add a comment, and we'll see if we can get our burning questions answered, without actually burning anything in our kitchens.
Get Connected airs every Sunday between 7-7:30am on Lite-FM. Links to past shows are on the bottom left of this page.
Mariah Carey has done something very sweet. She's put together a video of herself with her friend Whitney Houston, including some images we haven't seen before. It's very touching and definitely worth a look.
