I did it. I finally overtook E in the 300 macaron bake off. I perfected the art of the macaron.

Are you watching “Cosmos”? If not, you should.
E has figured out when he’s going to propose.
I’m really in a great mood, and have been all week.
One more from the homemade apple cognac butter recipe box.
Home for the holidays means so many things.
This weekend was super exciting for us. E and I went to see two of our dearest friends, Jenny and Otto, and meet their new baby, Arlo.
E had to leave town this weekend to tend to family business. I stayed behind because I had to tend to work—which meant covering the MTV Video Music Awards at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and going out to a bevy of after parties.
I’m halfway there! In the immortal words of Drake, I say, “we started from the bottom now we’re here.”
Ice cream sandwiches—using pre-made cookies and simple vanilla ice cream—were the fastest, easiest snack I could think of for E.
A helpful tip before I explain the sandwich: one should not go to the largest grocery store in Brooklyn while hungry.

I’m not the only doing all of the cooking around here. E made a delectable yet relatively healthy dinner for us last night–roasted leg of lamb, roasted vegetables provençal and lentils. But I took over dessert, and made the most ridiculously sweet and gooey sandwich possible.

I really should not be allowed to eat sugar past 9 PM. When I do, I turn into a Gremlin (readers over 30 will remember what Gremlins are. Those under 30, Google it). In the 1984 movie “Gremlins,” these adorable pets named mogwais are in the care of humans. But along with no sunlight and […]
E and I went our separate ways this weekend. Though both of our parents live in Michigan, they live 3 hours away from each other on opposite sides of the state. Since we only had the two day weekend off from work, E and I visited our respective families separately this time. Funny thing is […]
