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 […]

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… […]

ShareAnyone who knows me knows that I am a purple-bleeding, jersey wearing, never-miss-a-game-watching, die hard Ravens fan. But it wasn’t always thus. Growing up, Baltimore was a town without a team. Sure, we had the Orioles, but we were a football town at heart, and in the fall we had nothing but the Redskins and […]

ShareTonight I’m going to the Huntington Book Revue for a book signing.  Not just any signing. Tonight, I’m going to meet Bethenny. Let me just say that I have been a Bethenny fan since the first episode of The Real Housewives of New York.  Under the glitz and glam, there was something so immediately real […]

ShareThe news streaming in from Japan is staggering, heartbreaking, and impossible to escape.  I cry every time I look at images.  I had a blurb about our trip to Barbados all ready to go. I can’ t bring myself to post it. It was a wonderful vacation but it seems so trivial in the face […]

WRITTEN ON Monday, February 28th, 2011 BY Meredith AND STORED IN Beef, Dinner, No really, what IS for lunch?

ShareActors of a certain age often moan about how ageist Hollywood is. The lack of respect for older actors, for the craft itself, and how the opportunities dwindle post-40. I’ve always been a bit wary of that argument. Look, Meryl never seems to have a problem landing a role.  Tom Hanks can pretty much write […]

ShareThose of you who reside in the Northeast can attest to the fact that this feels like one of the longest winters in history. It’s only February, yet I find myself longing for spring and warm breezes earlier and more often than I have in years. I’m not one of those people who sink into […]

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 […]

WRITTEN ON Tuesday, November 30th, 2010 BY Meredith AND STORED IN Dinner, Holiday, Italian, Leftovers, Pasta, Turkey

ShareOur Thanksgiving was everything I’d hoped it would be. A house full of family, an adorable and well behaved baby girl, a long morning walk, a gorgeous table (she said as she pats herself on the back), and heaps of good food.  We had roast turkey and deep fried turkey. It rained, so we had […]
