ShareOne of my favorite things about this time of year is being able to cook food fresh from my garden. As a kid, I remember a favorite lunch of cherry tomatoes still warm from the sun, with slices of cheese and a few crackers. BLT’s with garden tomatoes were a treat for everyone – for […]

ShareIt is a truth universally known (ok, maybe not universal. It’s known among our friends, which some days feels universal) that my husband is a much healthier eater than I. When we sit at the bar at our local Italian favorite, its standard operating procedure that he will want the thinly sliced eggplant and the […]

ShareMuch is made of corned beef and cabbage on St. Patrick’s Day. But to me, there is nothing more truly Irish than the potato. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some corned beef.  It’s flavorful and salty, and tender to the bone. The problem is, it’s not really Irish.  It’s English.  Or Jewish.  Or, […]

ShareMy husband is one of those lucky people who comes from a big family on both sides. Not only that, but most of his cousins are in a similar age bracket: late 20’s to about 40, all with burgeoning careers and adult lives and families of their own. Last weekend, we came together with the […]

ShareI hate New Years resolutions. It seems to me that the reason we make them is because we have somehow failed in our attempts to accomplish whatever it is we’re resolving, again, to do.  Be healthy. Lose weight.  Spend less.  Excersice more. Why is it that each January, our resolutions are the exact same as […]

ShareWhen I was in 8th grade I cheated in Latin class. We had to hand in our homework and I convinced a friend to let me copy hers because I, shockingly, wasn’t exactly prepared. Strangely enough, we had the exact same wrong answers. Busted. I also, on occasion, would try to sneak a peek at […]

ShareMy father is not a cook.  Let’s get this straight right away.  He is a great many wonderful things, but as far as cooking goes, it’s toast and delivery pizza (and the toast thing is extremely rare, though he’s been doing pretty well on the grill, of late).  My mother buys pre-cut Cracker Barrel cheese […]

ShareMy long lost friends!   I have so much to tell you.  Please forgive my absence, life around these parts has been a little nutty lately. We’re moving.  To the ‘burbs.  I’m still in shock.  The last weeks have flown by in a flurry of house inspecting, contract signing, apartment listing and finance fretting.  We move […]

ShareMost people are of the mindset that when the cat’s away, the mouse will play.  In this apartment, the cat and the mouse actually enjoy quite a symbiotic relationship.  So really all that happens when the cat is away is that the mouse eats mushrooms.  And olives. In abundance. My better half gets home tonight […]

ShareWhen I was working a regular 9-5 office job, I remember always having a real problem with lunch. Specifically, where to buy it and how much it was going to cost. In New York City, something as ordinary as a chopped salad can run you about 14 bucks. Add a drink and a piece of […]
