Spring Pasta Dreaming

For the last few weeks, when dinnertime rolls around I haven’t found myself where I like to be the most, namely sitting around a table with my family, downloading the day’s events over a plate of something quick and fresh. Instead, I’m sitting in a parking lot or on bleachers or walking around a track waiting for a practice to… 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 »

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.

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?

(Think Instagram, the food edition.) Take for instance these… Read more »
