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 […]

ShareI hold a very special place in my heart for chicken salad.   Growing up in Baltimore, it was a menu main stay for pretty much every occasion: bridal showers, baby showers, buffets, cocktail parties, tailgates.  Name an event and a Baltimoron will find a way to get chicken salad on the menu. The perennial favorites […]

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 […]

ShareThis morning started out like any other morning. Several “snooze” sessions, my best Oscar the Grouch impersonation, and a large cup of coffee. Until I looked out the window. After several days of much needed, heavy rain, the skies over Long Island dawned clear, cool, and heart-breakingly blue. The perfect day to be out in […]

ShareOne of the things I’m struggling with, move-wise, is the fact that we’ll now have this whole house to take care of on our own.  That sounds horribly lazy, I realize.  Let me explain. We have a decent amount of work to do to bring our new abode up to speed. It’s a 1912 Colonial, […]

ShareMost of my friends seem to get pregnant just by blinking. Oops, we pulled the goalie and the very next day my pee stick came up with two pink lines! I love my friends.  They are my soul sisters, my laughter, the very best things in my life, alongside my family.  I never, ever want […]

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 […]

ShareI rode the elevator yesterday with a man who complained bitterly of the cold weather we’ve been having.  In fact, that’s pretty much all I’ve heard about since New Years. Every day, the weatherman talks about the “deep freeze in the Northeast,” or the latest cold snap. My doorman keeps telling me to “stay warm!” […]

ShareIt was an all sports, all the time weekend around here. Not only are our beloved Yankee’s trying for a World Series win over Philadelphia, but my husband’s BC Eagles were playing on Saturday, and Sunday brings out NFL mania in us all. Sunday was also the ING New York City Marathon, arguably the best […]

WRITTEN ON Monday, October 26th, 2009 BY Meredith AND STORED IN Cheese, Dinner, No really, what IS for lunch?, Soups

ShareThere is something so deliciously earthy and home-spun about a crock of steaming onion soup on a chilly night.  Slurping the winey broth while wrapping the strings of gooey Gruyere around my spoon (the perfect bite), I feel like I could close my eyes and be transported back to the turn of the century markets […]
