This is my favorite season of the year. From Halloween through New Years, I go hard. I do all of the things. Eat of all the things. Go HAM with decorations. Keep Vince Guaraldi’s “A Charlie Brown Christmas Album” on repeat. It’s my high season. High on life. High on peppermint mochas. High on it […]

We’re just a few weeks away from our baby’s arrival into the world. We’ve got most things covered–crib, diapers, bottles, stroller, etc.–but there’s still a few things we need to gather before we can really accept another human into this home. Like pumpkin bread. Our refrigerator and pantry looked a bit bare this weekend, so […]
I can’t wait to get home from shopping with my mom in law in Soho so I can come home and make the ultimate of leftovers sandwiches: the Thanksgiving Shooter Sandwich. I freaked out a few years ago when a reader taught me to make this (and to that reader, I am forever grateful). I […]
Me last night.
Days are shorter. Mornings are colder. Leaves are changing color and scattered on the ground. It’s fall, y’all. In case you haven’t noticed.
The past week, I’ve been making easy dinners for E and I in an effort to expand my recipe book and avoid eating out. I’ve been pretty successful. There was honey mustard chicken with apple and walnut couscous on Monday. And the other night, a supereasy turkey meatball dinner.
New York’s fall foliage is in full bloom. So E and I took a little road trip up the Hudson this weekend.
It’s slow cooker season at my house. One good reason to bring out the Crock-Pot is to cook for friends.
We are approaching October. Pumpkin Spice Lattes have been on sale at Starbucks for weeks. As have pumpkin-flavored Mini-Wheats and Twinkies and donuts and a whole bunch of other artificially made foods that have no business being pumpkin-flavored (you know there are pumpkin pie Pop-Tarts? News to me!) Yet I realized that I had not […]
Three more days until a four day weekend and eating until we pass out on the closest available flat surface. Bring. it. on.
This sandwich is a delicious getting-ready-for-Thanksgiving treat.
As mentioned when E’s dad was in town, I like to have something baking in the oven when houseguests come over. When the house smells like sweetness, it takes less pressure off of me to be sweet. Just kidding.
I realized that I have not yet cooked ANYTHING involving pumpkin in all of October. Now’s a good a time as any.

Hahaha. Aren’t I clever?
Fall hit us like a hard smack across the cheek this weekend. Break out the fleece jackets, the Crock-Pot (!) and….the homemade apple butter.
Forgive me for not posting yesterday, I was a bit busy.
I’ve learned to cook from two people. E and my good family friend, M.
This weekend was tough, being it Father’s Day and all.
After many years of eating canned cranberry sauce, I vowed last year never to do it again.
Saturday nights used to be for dinners out and club hopping. But I do enough of that during the week for my day job at The New York Post. Now—nesting with my boyfriend in my mid-30s—Saturday nights are for roasting chicken.
E and I reconnected with some cool friends this weekend.
I had a post a few weeks ago about why one should not order the plain white sandwich. Unless you’re E, and your girlfriend is making grilled cheese sandwiches with sauteed brussels sprouts and you despise the green veggies.
