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 […]

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, […]

ShareIt’s been so long I hardly know where to begin. My loyal readers (are there any left?) will remember that my last post, nearly three months ago, was on the eve of our family trip to Montauk.  We were taking my mother-in-law Carol out east for a vacation. As I stated in the post, she […]

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 […]

ShareWhen I was in 8th grade I cheated in Latin class. We had to hand in our homework and I convinced a friend to let me copy hers because I, shockingly, wasn’t exactly prepared. Strangely enough, we had the exact same wrong answers. Busted. I also, on occasion, would try to sneak a peek at […]

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 […]

ShareI wax poetic (maybe that’s a stretch) about New York City a lot on this blog.  It truly is a dynamic and interesting place to live.  But there are several things that I’ll not miss when we leave.  Given that I’m feeling a little conflicted about the move to the ‘burbs, I figured I’d start […]

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 […]
