ShareI write a lot on this blog about my maternal grandmother, Dot, and growing up in my hometown of Baltimore. What I’ve never mentioned is that my dad’s mother (in a bizarre twist also named Dot) is alive and kicking, 90 years young and still living on her own in her home of 40 years, […]

ShareFall always makes me nostalgic. The crisp air, the golden light, the crunching leaves. Kids getting back into the swing of things at school, Halloween plans. I always crave that “back to school” feeling, though in truth I’m so glad I never have to think about cramming for another exam or going to an extra-boring […]

ShareAt the Greenmarkets yesterday, there was a sign that said ” last day for peaches,” and that’s when it hit me.  Summer is over.  For real.  Don’t get me wrong.  I love fall.  I was born in the fall.  Halloween is in the fall, Libra is my favorite sign, I love Sunday football, and Thanksgiving […]

ShareI keep forgetting that it’s still bathing suit season.  I always feel like there’s so much build up in May and early June and then by the time Independence Day comes around, the bathing suit eating is out the back door and I’m back to body by Bud.  I’m one of those people who just […]

ShareIt’s one of those days that can only be described as a scorcher. A fry-an-egg-on-the-sidewalk, sweatin’ like a whore in church kind of day. A day when you feel sorry for dogs and cats and really hairy people everywhere.  A day when all you want to do is sit in your underwear in front of […]

ShareFew things strike fear into my heart more than onion dip from a can, or beer cheese out of a plastic tub. Why serve over-processed, store bought gunk when it’s so easy to whip up delicious and healthy snacks right in your own kitchen? After all, we’re not in college anymore (and for those who […]

ShareLast weekend I went to the most magical wedding I have ever attended. It was on a lake in Maine, the sun was shining, the bride arrived by boat. Maybe the fact that I was one of the wedding party made me slightly biased. Either way, the food was great and I basically jumped for […]

ShareI spent this weekend on Bantam Lake in Connecticut at a friend’s house. We had the most unbelievable weather, and I pretty much decided that I wanted to sit on a lounge chair and soak up the fresh air for the entire 36 hours of our stay. And yet…we still had to eat, right? The […]

ShareSometimes, good things come in small packages. Chocolates. iPods. Diamond rings. Vegetables. I ventured down to the Greenmarket yesterday in search of strawberries, herbs and asparagus (more on these later). I found the most gorgeous light purple shallots and fragrant mint, along with some local feta. Inspiration struck. These gorgeous little towers of yum are […]
