About The Blog

Mission: Family Dinner.

PRESS & Stuff

Here’s a Q&A I did with Martha Stewart.

Here I am talking about my books on NPR’s Weekend Edition.

Here I am pretending not to be nervous on NBC’s Today Show.

Here is my I-can-retire-happy moment: “The New Domestic Ideal” in New York. (Blink and you might miss it.)

A fun interview on Cup of Jo as part of her “My Balance” series.

And in The Wall Street Journal‘s “The Juggle”

Here’s a book review of Dinner: A Love Story on Salon that a) brought me to tears and b) I sent to my mom within minutes of finishing.

Here’s another on Food52 that includes the immortal phrase ““[Rosenstrach’s] book and blog are something very rare in the genre of family dinner: They inspire neither homicidal nor suicidal impulses.”

Here’s a story I wrote for Real Simple that I find myself sending to a lot of middle school parents.

Here’s “The Providers,” a column I co-write six times a year for Bon Appetit with Andy.

Hello,
My name is Angelica and I’m at Mode Media. As a mother always looking for dinner ideas, I’m a big fan of your site and recipes. Mode is always looking to work with great content creators to bring them monetization opportunities. I’d love to connect to discuss all the programs and ad products we offer that wouldn’t be intrusive to your site and take away from the look and feel – namely our native unit which pays higher CPMs than standard banners. Plus, we have a variety of other more creator-centric programs as well that will help expose and amplify your reach to our network of more than 6,000 creators in our community.

If you are interested on exploring, I’d love to set up a call or meet in person. I work out of the NY satellite offices.

Kind regards,
Angelica

Hi Jenny – thank you so much for sharing these special family recipes – I’m looking forward to making the meatballs, the pork, biscotti and the cake, too! What great memories you have of your family! Thanks again -

I discovered your website through your article on 100daysofrealfood.com and immediately read your first book cover to cover. So far, I have made your spaghetti and meatballs and fish cakes. They were both delicious, but I especially loved your fish cakes with the baked potato. My family was full and happy!
We also have a dinner at the table every night rule. My kids are young, but we still sit with them and all eat the same meal (or a version!). I’m looking forward to trying more recipes and following your blog.

Can chicken sausage be substituted for pork sausage in “Baked Sausage with Apples, Potatoes, and Onions”? DALS p. 109?
