ShareThis latest installment in the Mommy Wars has me fired up and feeling the need to vent a little. Oh, hi. Remember me? Caterer turned recipe blogger turned stay at home mom who left you all for months to lap up every second with my kid? Right. Glad we got that awkward re-entry over with… […]

ShareLooking out my window this morning at the about-to-burst magnolia tree in our yard, it dawned on me that it’s now been one full year since we bought our house on Dewey Street and moved to the ‘burbs from the big city. The first few months were a frenzy of activity. Updates to the house […]

ShareThere’s nothing better than a big, red tomato fresh from the vine, still warm from the sunshine.  My mom grew fantastic tomatoes in her garden, and when I was growing up, BLT’s for dinner was a summertime treat.

ShareThe summer after I graduated from college, I took off on a backpack tour with my friend Katie.  We hit most of the major cities in Western Europe, including the lovely city of Munich, where we drank beer in steins bigger than our heads and grew increasingly impressed by the larger than life women who […]
