Hidden Valley gets your garden started!

My Garden I’m writing this post under the best possible circumstances: in the early morning light, out in my newly-renovated back yard, gazing upon my new raised garden beds just waiting to be filled. (If any of my neighbors are looking my way, they’re not getting as good a deal – they’re gazing on me […]

In Brooklyn? Let me bake for you this weekend!

So last night I posted about a benefit I went to that raised money for pediatric cancer research, and a great giveaway I’m running courtesy of Glad chock full of $125 worth of baking supplies. I’m also holding my own bake sale this weekend to raise money for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, and since I […]

Raising money for every mother’s nightmare

This afternoon I took Fiona out of school early and we headed to Moomah Cafe, also known in whispered tones as the kid cafe owned by Jon Stewart’s wife. Of course, I already have a deep and meaningful relationship with Jon Stewart, so I was going to this event strictly for selfless reasons and not […]

The best pre-rapture cinnamon bun recipe ever

So I woke up this morning before everyone else, and I wanted to make them cinnamon buns for breakfast. However, with only a few hours left until the rapture, I didn’t want to waste time waiting for the dough in my usual recipe to rise. This seemed like the perfect time to try out my […]

I may be balding, but at least I’m rocking the glasses

Last night, for reasons I can’t figure out, TweetDeck decided to change my picture. At least I look happy. Originally posted on Selfish Mom.

From junk heap to beautiful backyard

This is the story of how our backyard went from being a disaster to being a beautiful oasis of grass and bricks in just two short weeks. Five years and two weeks. When we moved in to our brownstone the backyard was a complete mess. It had a hideous plastic and wood “shelter” built on […]

Two tiny apartments, two completely different approaches

My husband would argue that we have too much space. I would argue that we should have more children to fill that space. Eventually I expect to be found by police, strangled to death, with a crumpled mortgage statement protruding from my mouth. But whichever one of us is right, we’re very lucky that we […]
