ShareLast week I took Luke to a play date at my friend Kim’s house. She asked me to bring some kind of grain salad, as part of the grown ups lunch. I decided on bulgar salad with roasted peppers, zucchini and herbs, purely because it’s what I had on hand. For the kids, it was PB&J’s […]

ShareOn the way home from the Apple store today, I found myself listening to the Miranda Lambert song, “The House that Built Me. When this song came out two years ago, I got emotional every time it played, thinking of the house where I grew up. It was an 1800’s Victorian-style farmhouse, with brown shingles, […]

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 […]

ShareGrowing up, my mom never made us peas.  She was still scarred from her pea-filled youth. We ate a pretty well rounded diet, and as a result, I grew into a voracious eater, willing to try almost anything, rarely picky.  It’s one of the qualities I find most attractive in other people, because I think […]

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, […]

ShareOne of my favorite things about New York City is that it affords its inhabitants the ability to be completely spontaneous.  There’s no driving, no worries about parking or the mall lot being too full.  Your choices are not Applebee’s or Chili’s, by default (though I’d go Chili’s all the way, there). You might wait […]

ShareMy childhood friend Laura always had the best lunches. The lunch table was generally divided into sections. Those of us who ate and those of us who didn’t (I went to an all girls school. The not eating thing was somewhat of a problem in our later years). But there was one thing we could […]

ShareFall always makes me nostalgic. The crisp air, the golden light, the crunching leaves. Kids getting back into the swing of things at school, Halloween plans. I always crave that “back to school” feeling, though in truth I’m so glad I never have to think about cramming for another exam or going to an extra-boring […]

ShareThere’s nothing better than a big, red tomato fresh from the vine, still warm from the sunshine.  My mom grew fantastic tomatoes in her garden, and when I was growing up, BLT’s for dinner was a summertime treat. Bacon makes everything better, right?  I figured I’d change it up a bit and create a BLT […]

ShareIt’s one of those days that can only be described as a scorcher. A fry-an-egg-on-the-sidewalk, sweatin’ like a whore in church kind of day. A day when you feel sorry for dogs and cats and really hairy people everywhere.  A day when all you want to do is sit in your underwear in front of […]
