If you make popsicles for your two year old, think carefully where he eats them, ie not near the white couch.
1. The first rule of cauliflower pizza crust is: don’t expect real pizza crust. It is only by lowering expectations that we can be pleasantly surprised. 2. If you’re feeling […]
Last night I made a simple salad with arugula (a.k.a. rockets) which, as many of you know, is leafy green with a rather “peppery” flavor. I put some cracked pepper in the dressing along with some lemon, olive oil, and fresh garlic. I added pepper to the salad. Then I […]
Curry dishes are delicious. And healthy. And they’re so easy to make. I made this one with onions, garlic, light coconut milk, sweet potatoes, and broccoli. It’s a basic chop and stir. And part of a health kick over here at the home tome. But the thing about making curry […]
1. Boiling water: it is imperative that boiling water does not get on, in, or anywhere near your Very Awake Infant (V.A.I.). 2. It goes without saying that you are attempting to make these tasty, bite-sized hors d’oeuvres to take to a party (surely nobody makes deviled eggs to eat […]
I hate to be the master of the obvious here, but…it turns out breastfeeding is quite a commitment. I’m eight weeks into what I intend to be a six month stint – I believe it is a great and healthy thing for my child and I think it is indeed […]

Has life got you down? Has the impending gloom of winter taken the “spring” out of your step? I would like to hereby suggest that you have some soup. Did the Dow Jones just plummet and with it, all your hopes and dreams for the future? (Namely, retiring by the […]
Something happened recently: I discovered grilled watermelon. My SIL Marcy and I were lounging on the beach on Cape Cod earlier this summer, flipping through magazines. In the Martha Stewart June 2011 edition, we found this recipe for watermelon that’s grilled on skewers then paired with a big hunk of […]
Well, U S of A, we didn’t bake you a cake or sing you a song, but we engaged in many other activities in your honor this weekend. First of all, we purchased round flags (actually, lanterns) at the local dollar store and hung them from our pergola. Next, we […]
