Share the Bounty

. Good morning everybody! We are up early in the DALS house today — doing some pie-baking, turkey-seasoning, and last-minute farm-shopping before heading out to my sister’s house in Long Island to spend a few days with the family. As I’ve mentioned many millions of times, Thanksgiving is my Super Bowl. There’s no holiday I love more for its sheer bounteous… Read more »

Halloween Giveaway

So this is fun. For those of you who’ve picked up a copy of my book, a) THANK YOU and b) you might’ve ogled the Franks-n-Beans recipe which we have been known to scare up for our Halloween launch party (alongside a healthy selection of bourbon, of course).  In honor of the ritual and the season, longtime partner Applegate, maker… Read more »

Friday Reading and Eating

Adult spaghetti-Os anyone? This Lenny Letter review of How to Celebrate Everything made me laugh. (“Come for the party-throwing tips, stay for the unique family rituals she shares. User-friendly, practical, festive, and delicious. Just like Joy of Sex.”) If this anthology is anything like her first anthology, I’m all over it. I love the way the candles look on this… Read more »

Food and Memory

Remember that scene in Ratatouille when the ruthless restaurant critic Anton Ego takes a bite of Remi’s ratatouille and is instantly whooshed back to his mother’s country kitchen? His normally severe face melts into a kind of euphoria, and he drops his pen in the shock of recognition, in the transportive power of food. (As if to say, the feeling… Read more »

Friday Eating & Reading

What we’re reading and eating this week: We are all officially addicted to this salad from the meal kit mavens at Marley Spoon. My daughter, who’s on a health kick in preparation for her upcoming cross-country season, has made it for lunch three days in a row this week. (She omits the butter beans and spelt; I use quinoa or… Read more »

Where I Eat, Drink, and Shop in Westchester

Forgive me broader readership, I’m going super local today. Many of you probably know that I live in Westchester County, which borders New York City to the north and is flanked by the sailboat-dotted Long Island Sound to the East and the mighty Hudson River to the West. With the exception of college in Western Mass and a decade in… Read more »

Friday Eating & Reading

What we’re reading and eating this week: Five-ingredient Fried Chicken (hold the frying)… I’m sure parents of picky eaters out there can relate to this… Phoebe, our 14-year-old, is officially addicted to Radiolab. Last weekend, on a road trip, we replayed Colors, one of their most popular episodes, and it blew all of our minds, all over again… I talked… Read more »

My Next Book

I’m so excited to write these words: You are looking at my next book, How to Celebrate Everything, which will be published on September 20, 2016. I know I’m prone to overstatement, but when I say this is the most meaningful project I’ve ever worked on, I’m not lying. (And yes, I realize I’m saying this as somebody who can… Read more »

Mother Knows Best

Our mothers are both 70-something. They both wore shoulder-padded silk blouses to their full-time jobs in the 80s; they’re both skeptical of salt that is not iodized and turkeys that are heritage; and both made it clear when we were growing up that family dinner – which, yes, was centered on an old-school Italian repertoire, and supplemented by a little… Read more »

Friday Eating & Reading

Delighted to report that I’ve once again collaborated with the fresh, wholesome, all-around awesome meal-delivery service Marley Spoon. Check out next-week’s menu line-up (click “May 2″), which includes my Hoisin Burgers and a springy Salmon with Herby Green Mayo from Mad Hungry‘s Lucinda Scala Quinn. (Side note: Wouldn’t a box be a nice gift for your over-taxed, dinner-loving significant other?) Bonus for DALS… Read more »

Friday Round-up

You know how I always say my favorite recipes are the ones you can exchange in an elevator ride with a friend? (“Yeah, you just sauté a piece of salmon in butter, drizzle with yogurt-horseradish sauce. Have a good day!”) Well Food52 has launched the app version of that idea with (Not)Recipes. (Think Instagram, the food edition.) Take for instance these… Read more »

‘Top Chef’ at Home

It was only Tuesday, so in theory, there should’ve been options when I opened the refrigerator to figure out dinner. Didn’t we just go shopping, like, yesterday? At this point in my life, I’m no longer surprised to see Phoebe eat her way through a gigantic container of pineapple chunks before we’ve even finished unpacking groceries. But dinner staples? That’s… Read more »

Vacation Highlight Reel: Miami

 So remember all that stuff I wrote about how much we love staying in rentals or Airbnbs when we travel? How, that way, we get to really immerse ourselves in our new environment and are more apt to explore markets and neighborhoods and discover real local flavor? Well, I take it all back — at least for now, while I’m… Read more »

An Immortalized Lovey for Valentine’s Day

Meet Pablo. He’s lived in our house for so long that I forget most of you probably know him already as the beloved bow-tied ringleader of The Backyardigans. When Phoebe was little, she and her sister were obsessed with the show, about five friends seeking out imaginary adventures in their backyard, breaking into song and dance routines as they do… Read more »

Welcome to the Neighborhood

When we first moved into our house twelve years ago, we were shocked by how friendly and welcoming our new neighbors were. We figured it would be like Brooklyn — we’d meet our fellow apartment dwellers eventually, after running into them enough times in the lobby’s mail station, or taking a minute to ask what kind of breed their dog… Read more »

Resolved: Be Good…Most of the Time

Am I the only one who finds it really irritating that New Year’s and all its attendant cayenne-spiked-lemon-water dieting resolutions happen to fall right in the dead of winter…precisely when the weather is demanding you soothe yourself every night with stewy braised meats over creamy polentas or potatoes? Polished off with the brownies that your kids made earlier that afternoon… Read more »
