As an angsty adolescent I was a huge fan of novelist Anne Rice (of Interview with the Vampire fame). So it is only natural that I should end up with my very own baby vampire, who “vants to suck,” well, everything, who has bitten me until he drew blood, and who can often be found awake at … Continue reading
I recently saw a girl wearing a plaid infinity scarf and I just had to have one! Infinity scarfs seem to be my staple item this winter and who doesn’t love plaid? I noticed an old pair of plaid Ralph Lauren pajama pants tucked away in my closet that would be perfect for this project. … Continue reading
We arrived home from visiting family in Maryland last night and I entered our house one cookbook richer – lucky me got to borrow Melissa Clark’s In the Kitchen with a Good Appetite from my lovely mother-in-law. I had a 5-lb. bag of red lentils on the counter and not much in the fridge save a few … Continue reading
My number one all around favorite article of clothing during this postpartum breastfeeding stage of motherhood has been… the shirtdress.
For the last 20 of my 31 years I have woken up on my birthday to this divine cake. I grew up next door to my grandmother (I have a million stories of how lucky it is to grow up within walking distance of grandparents, but this is one of my favorites). Every year on … Continue reading

And there’s no need to feel guilty about it, because baby food is good for mom and dad, too, and some of it is TASTY, … Continue reading
NYC hasn’t had much of a winter this year. We’ve hardly had the opportunity to bunker down, watch cheesy movies, and drink (spiked) hot chocolate as the outside world fades into snowy white, but it’s been cold enough some days for me to longingly think of balmy summer days - in particular sundresses and flip flops. … Continue reading

Number one on my to do list this week was clean out and organize my closets. I have a hodgepodge of pre- and post-pregnancy clothes, maternity clothes, and those annoying pieces that have been worn too many times and are faded and disfigured, but always avoid the Goodwill pile. The miscellaneous pieces were the most … Continue reading
