After my first post about this, and many inquiries about how things are going, I wanted to finally give you an update on our kinder, more vegetarian diet. We started changing things in our kitchen mostly because Don got sick with some kind of inflammatory illness five months ago, and since he got no diagnosis or pain relief from conventional medicine, he needed to try something… Continue

Indian restaurant. I had to admit
I had never eaten Indian food before, but I was up for anything. My 11 year old wasn’t very thrilled,
but she recently discovered she liked guacamole, so Indian couldn’t be that
different. Was she ever in for a

Not Me! Monday
I did not
wear a white and a black woolen sock to New York City the other day. Uh, yes I did. I was invited by Hasbro to a blogger event before they officially opened their doors for the New York Toy Fair (look out for the extensive blog post on that). I could only find one of each, it was 6 in the morning when I got dressed, and nobody was going to notice anyway. I could have worn other socks -- I have plenty -- but these are my… Continue

I will admit it – before making this recipe I had never eaten a pomegranate.
I have had pomegranate juice, but this was the first time I’ve purchased the whole fruit. I had Mike open it up and get the seeds out for me [it kind of looked like a pain to me - thank you, honey!]. I popped one in my mouth – a little crunch, a little explosion of deliciousness!… Continue

...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.

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
