ShareThe first decade of the 21st century ended quietly for the Shanleys. To be honest, 2009 was a trying year.  Of course there were some treasured memories. This blog was certainly a fulfilling highlight.  We found a beach rental that we fell in love with.  Got upgraded to first class on a long awaited trip […]

ShareMy mom has been working on a project which essentially traces her roots (thus, my roots) back to the Revolutionary War.  Well, really she has us as far back as William the Conqueror.  I have to say I’m a little dubious of that part.  But it’s safe to say that a member of my family […]

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 […]

ShareYesterday I worked an all day beauty editor event here in NYC. It’s typically an open house for the launch of a new product. Beauty companies woo editors from magazines and websites, by means of food and drink and free lipstick, to sample their wares in the hopes of getting a glowing write up. These […]

ShareThere is something so homey and comforting and simple about ratatoullie.  It makes me nostalgic for the French grandmother I didn’t actually have (but if I had had one, she would have made me ratatoullie.  I just know it).  Ratatoullie has that certain je ne se qois; a sense of place  even when eaten far […]

ShareAt the Greenmarkets yesterday, there was a sign that said ” last day for peaches,” and that’s when it hit me.  Summer is over.  For real.  Don’t get me wrong.  I love fall.  I was born in the fall.  Halloween is in the fall, Libra is my favorite sign, I love Sunday football, and Thanksgiving […]

ShareI know, people. It’s supposed to be an apple a day. But this colorful (not to mention lovely) little side dish is a surefire way to eat healthy without even realizing it. Chock full of fresh veggies, its a simple way to use up leftover garden delights. I’m trying to squeeze as much out of […]

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 […]

Share August and September are probably my favorite time of year to eat.  The produce is glorious, that perfect mix between summer and fall.  Berries and zucchini and melons are still plentiful, but the apples have already started to appear, and by mid-September we’ll start to see pumpkins and brussels and pears, oh my!  The […]
