...After we stopped in town to get the mail, my sister-in-law and three of her kids came over for the afternoon. Don and Maria wanted to watch the movie “Food Inc." I decided to entertain the kids with making cupcakes.
I had just bought this muffin-making kit for a dollar on sale yesterday, thinking it would come in handy one day. Reading the ingredients made me shudder . . . Let’s just say making these was more fun than eating them — not even the kids ate much of… Continue

My five year old's Montessori class held its annual Thanksgiving celebration feast this morning. I signed up to bring the turkey, stuffing, gravy and vegetables. Did I start cooking yesterday? No. I started cooking at 6:15am and delivered everything to the school by 10am. No sweat.
Preparing Thanksgiving dinner does not need to be stressful. I've outlined, below, a simple menu that can be thrown together very easily in a matter of a few hours.
The Perfect… Continue

babies after mommy milk should not jump into adult food menu, only mixed. My daughter is 1yr and 8month old and we still are making her not only healthy food, but also we check the history of ingredients. We try to avoid buy frozen meator vegetables for baby, but we seek small fresh markets of farmers. Same pumpkins, same potatoes, but from eco ranches. Off course we start to give her vegetables and meat from usual stores step by step. I am amateur in cooking. I will try to share my… Continue

I never planned on posting recipes to this blog, but people keep asking me for them so I guess its time to start!!! Here is a great recipe for on the go breakfast quiches.

Just after college, I moved to New York City. I earned next to nothing and shared a studio apartment with another girl. Many weeks, I had to decide between dry cleaning my clothes or eating. So, I learned how to hand wash many dry-clean-only garments. I grew up a lot in those first few years - I think everyone should live in NYC for a few years when they are young adults. But I digress...
Our kitchen was the size of a closet, and I used to scowl at the waste of space that was our… Continue

It's been almost a full two weeks since my old camera got sent out for repairs. I felt strange not having it around for those impromptu shots throughout the day. And I just about panicked not having it for all the great activities we've been doing. It's been quite a pendulum swing I guess- there are hardly any photos from the early years of our marriage- it was such a bother to pick up film, get it printed, and then deal with all the prints afterwards. I remember being apprehensive about the… Continue

The only way in which I even remotely resemble Martha Stewart is weekday meal planning - no, I’m not smoking my own lox or carving radish roses, but I’ve learned to prep dinners in the morning, so on hectic days of driving kids to activities until dinnertime, I have something ready to heat up. This is less a display of organization than a bribe to myself (if I get through the hellish afternoon, I’ll actually have a dinner I enjoy instead of stale leftovers or take-out I can’t… Continue

We are a society that over-consumes in every sense of the word. We buy unnecessarily and if you just look around, we eat unnecessarily as well. We have been taught (and somewhat scared) into dieting, using artificial products to add to our foods, and forced to read food labels. Much of the cuisines we consume or at least have consumed over the past years are filled with toxins. The process of how food is grown and manufactured has drastically altared. This has transformed our country into an… Continue

As you might imagine, I get lots of new food product samples as food editor at Working Mother magazine. Some may think it's a perk, but the truth is there are very few that make the cut when it comes to both taste and nutrition. These days the grocery bills add up and trying new products may seem more a luxury—lest you risk spending hard-earned bucks on something barely edible. So, I've decided to let you benefit from my trial and error.
