MY WEEK IN FOOD

This was an excellent way to start the week off … Sunday dinner featuring juicy tomatoes, basil, olive oil, salt, and lumps of creamy burrata cheese. Make this! It’s summer on a plate.

MOTHER’S DAY GIVEAWAY WEEK FOUR
QUICK FIX INDIAN COOKBOOK

It wasn’t until I met Mr. Mom’s Kitchen right after college that I tried Indian food for the first time. He’d just returned from four years in the UK where the cuisines of India and Pakistan are more prevalent and the quality of the food far superior. I was hooked immediately. Since then I’ve dipped […]

FEARLESS FEEDING: THE BOOK EVERY PARENT NEEDS
(AND I’M GIVING AWAY A COPY!)

I haven’t been as excited by a book as I am about Fearless Feeding since the fifth grade when I got my hands on Judy Blume’s tween classic Are you there God, it’s me, Margaret. The only downside of the fact that I’m giving away a copy is that I’ll no longer have one for myself, which […]

MY WEEK IN FOOD

Today’s post should be renamed MY WEEK IN CARBS considering the dietary imbalance in our household at the moment, something that became quite clear looking back at the assorted snapshots from the week. The carbathon began with a mad scramble to pull together a quick dessert for friends coming over for some holiday cheer. Virginia […]

BEST GRANOLA BARS: HOMEMADE AND STORE-BOUGHT

I was at the supermarket on Sunday being trailed by all three of my kids playing that age-old game of mothers and children: they slip food into the shopping cart; you notice said food and return it to the shelf. Included was a box of granola bars proffered by my daughter, Rosie, that were coated […]

CUTTING BOARD SAFETY

Kitchen safety: This is a trick I learned from the pros during my one foray into restaurant cooking while in grad school. To keep cutting boards from wiggling around, dampen a dish towel, lay it on your work surface, and set your cutting board on top. Alternatively, you can cut pieces of foam or rubber […]

THE PERFECT OMELETTE

Being back in the swing of the school year and the swirl of parents that comes along with it, I’m reminded of the rich community of moms around me: So smart, and so full of clever ideas. Just this morning I found myself swapping lunch packing tips with Kelly, a mother of two, challenged with […]
