I’m making National Ice Cream Month last a little longer with this giveaway

  When I visited the Blue Bunny Ice Cream Factory last summer, one of the coolest things I got to do was make my own ice cream flavor. I’m still a little crushed that they didn’t bring it to market immediately, but I guess I’ll just have to live with my disappointment. We walked into […]

How to look like a tourist in NYC

Walk around Eataly carrying an Olive Garden leftovers bag. Lest you think I’m taking aim at some poor unaware person, that’s my husband.

My oldest turned 10 today, and got to play with fire.

Ten years ago today, I became a mom. And now here I am, with a son who’s old enough to light his own candles. It seems like yesterday when he needed help just blowing them out. Happy birthday, little man. Originally posted on SelfishMom, from Amy’s cell phone (so please excuse any weird formatting). All […]

Today’s Agenda: two extraordinary ways to die edition

So I’m back from our camping trip to Lake George, and I hit the ground running just an hour after we got back yesterday with a dinner and an XBox event. This morning it was up at 5:30 with Jake to get him off to camp and continue the monumental task of putting away all […]

I want to have my car and eat it too

OK, what I mean by that is, I want a big car with lots of trunk space that seats a lot of people, but I don’t want it to be big. I live in Brooklyn. Home of narrow streets and a serious parking shortage. When we first moved here we snagged a gated spot in […]

Today’s Agenda: Too hot to post edition

The symbol on the weather report on ABC today wasn’t a sun, it was flames. And that’s all I have to say. It’s too hot to type.

The best non-stick pan I’ve ever used in my entire life. Seriously

How’s that for a review headline? It’s not an exaggeration. I’m something of a cookware nut, with a drawer full of expensive pans, including lots of Calphalon One. But I’d never even heard of GreenPan before encountering the company at a gift guide trade show. I didn’t linger at the table too long because, well, […]

Today’s agenda: spontaneous combustion edition

It’s going to be hot today. How hot will it be? So hot that I will unapologetically run my ac unit all day. So hot I will drive my daughter the six blocks to day camp and back with the car’s ac blasting the whole way. So hot I will drink water (and I hate […]

Today’s Agenda: where the hell is the tent? edition

Today is (almost) all about getting ready for our camping trip this weekend. Sure, I could wait until Friday, which would be more typical of me, but the floor where all of our camping stuff got dumped after the last trip isn’t air conditioned, and at 88 today is supposed to be the coolest day. […]
