Day 2 of Brooklyn foodventures

August 14, 2013


Day 2 began with a bit of a misadventure. We went to Pulp and Bean on franklin for bagels and Coffee w dad…an appropriate Friday activity, and to see a wonderful friend briefly. But the ladies didnt want to be dragged out of the house at that early hour (before 9!) so we had to […]

Blue sky bakery–day 1 of 30 day Brooklyn food adventures

August 9, 2013


Well, bear with me as I get the hang of this app, this posting on the go thing, and this whole juggling of two companions on my August adventures. For background, my husband and I always talk about how if we ever leave Brooklyn we will surely miss the amazing food culture. And I see […]

Goat Cheese and Eggplant Crostini

May 18, 2013


I am going to be alternating during the next few posts between desserts and appetizers/veggies dishes–from simple yet elegant (classic recipes I’m finally putting on the blog)–to fun, inventive, and adventurous. There’s alot going on here for us this spring–a time of wonderful changes, preparations, limited time for kitchen adventures but always inspiration in the […]

D is for Detox

February 1, 2013


I just went through a wonderful whole foods 12 day detox. Yep, after the holidays I knew I could use a little help…I was eating and craving the stuff I knew wasn’t good for me and babe–so time to reset and bring back the good habits–and hopefully even build on them towards better habits:) I […]

A Family Thanksgiving–in pictures

November 27, 2012


So in the middle of the day–in the midst of our food prepping labors–we found ourselves to be hungry. I whipped up this salad as a birthday lunch treat for my mom and we all benefited from the fresh and joyous burst of flavors and energy producing ingredients. Those little balls that look slightly like […]

a NEW pumpkin choco-chip bread…

November 26, 2012


Well– Where do I begin? How about with this recent recipe whipped up as a gift for the sweet teachers at my little one’s school? We made gift baskets for them and it was a wonderful lesson in gratitude for her… Pumpkin Chocolate Chip bread…I make this at least once every fall. So that’s not […]

The Green Fair

July 10, 2012


Washington, CT, July 7, 2012 What a blast we had. This is Emma enjoying herself at the Fair. With company… But before that, we had a fun evening involving trimming shortbread cookies that decided to take on shapes not in keeping with their creator’s intent. We got through that. We also made muffins. Millions of […]

Summer Grillin’

July 3, 2012


I have a longing for grilled food that is excessively heightened by the fact that we do not have our own grill, nor do we really have access to one…short of lodging one in the corner of the fire escape (illegal) I’m stuck. I always laugh when I see folk dragging bbqs across the road […]

Tomatoes on my fire escape

June 9, 2012


Sounds heavenly doesn’t it? So apparently others think so too. There is a website called Fire Escape Farms, and this lovely post sent to me by a foodie friend, encouraging extravagant tomato planting, all within arms reach any time of the day or night. Nothing like having a nice evening lounging on the fire escape […]

May flowers

May 5, 2012


Something feels wrong–we’re having rain in May, after many sunny days in April. Here’s a glimpse at why the posting has been a bit scarce as of late…( I know that i have about 7 recipes and posts in my head, some of which happened while we were traveling, or we’ve been enjoying as of […]
