ShareOne of the things I love most about my husband? He’s a complete holiday junkie, a perfect mix between George Bailey post-Clarence and Clark W. Griswold (a little sappy and a little funny). By day he’s a finance genius (at least to me he is.  I have a tough time with my 12’s times tables […]

ShareIn high school I was labeled a bacon thief by my friend Jill’s mom.  After sitting up on her kitchen counter one morning, eating slice after slice of bacon as her mother fried away (and assuming I was being incredibly charming, of course), Jill finally had to pull me aside and gently break it to […]

ShareHere in New York City it’s about 85 degrees. So I personally will be grilling something for my dinner, or maybe even finding a neighborhood place with outdoor seating.

ShareSunday at my house (read: little apartment) is a slow food day. I think about what to make for Sunday supper a few days ahead of time. It’s my favorite day of the week, the ultimate lazy day, and capping it off with a delicious, home-cooked meal seems the perfect tribute to the end of […]
