ShareOver the past month, my son has started saying a few select words. When he started this process, I had high hopes. “Mama” couldn’t be too far off, right? Not so much. Until very recently, my darling boy said one word and one word only. He used it correctly every time, and he used it about […]

ShareI am headed to the east end of Long Island for one last summer trip.  I have spent a decade of summers in Westhampton Beach, the first town in the Hamptons (and so un-Hampton-y that they actually don’t even list it on the map in most Hamptons publications). This year, hubby and I decided we’d […]

ShareI’ve just returned from a week in Rockport, Massachusetts, a little town on the edge of Cape Ann, about 45 minutes north of Boston. I’ve written about Rockport before, on several occasions. And for good reason. I’ve spent every summer of my life in Rockport, in a house on a hill that was first purchased […]

ShareI actually started to well up a bit as I typed out the title of this post.  I know some recent admissions of mine may make it seem as though I’m in a constant struggle.  And I fear some of my more fertility based rants may have been misconstrued, or perhaps poorly communicated. There are […]

ShareI always loved Halloween as a kid.  It was the highlight of the fall.  And I don’t even like candy. I had the kind of mom who’d make my costumes herself.  There were never any store bought mermaid or Miss America costume-in-a-bag outfits in our house. I think the best costume I ever had was […]

ShareI think I may have already broken my New Year’s resolutions.  The thing is, I didn’t really speak them out loud.  So if I were a dishonest person I could just forget about them entirely and pretend I never made any.  Ugh.  Sometimes I really hate honesty. They were, as follows: 1) Only one serving […]

Share How appropriate that this post should be my 100th.  I knew it was coming up, but hadn’t actually planned to have it coincide with this recipe.  Maybe it’s Dot smiling down on me?  I like to think so.  I miss her right about now. This was my grandmother’s signature recipe.  Her calling card, if […]

ShareOk folks, check out the below YouTube link for the next entry in my Spice Diaries, plus the recipes below that are featured in the demo!  I promise it will work this time.  My cloudy old brain gets a little confused by these new-fangled computer tricks but I brought myself up to speed right quick. […]

ShareI’m running around like a madwoman this week prepping for a 12 person four course plated meal tomorrow night and a baby shower this weekend.  I was excited when the hostess for the dinner tomorrow requested these gorgeous red wine poached pears for her dessert course.  Why?  I think poached pears present so elegantly, are […]

ShareThe guy at the end of the hall is my least favorite person on the planet, and I don’t even know his name. He’s one of those know-it-all types that would argue that the sky is green and everyone else is color-blind. He’s also extremely unhygienic (which wouldn’t bother me really if he wasn’t such […]
