I think I follow too many food boards on Pinterest. But at least I have my daughter’s lunch packed for the first day of school. Thanks for the inspiration, Kelby!
While I did write a sponsored post for Pompeian Olive Oil recently, this video was done on my own and was not sponsored in any way.
AeroGarden basil: it’s always sunny in my back hallway Too much basil is a problem I usually don’t have until September or October each year. When the weather is turning cold I take all of the basil that’s left in my garden and make a whole lot of pesto. Thanks to my AeroGardens, I’m happily […]
I used to live near a Ben & Jerry’s, and almost every time I went I’d get the Banana Fudge Royal. I haven’t been to a B&J’s in probably a decade, and I don’t know if the Banana Fudge Royal even exists any more, but last Wednesday I got a powerful craving for one. So […]
After talking about it for several days, I finally got around to making Banana Cream Pie. It’s one of my favorite desserts, but I’ve never found a recipe for it that I loved. I decided to try this one from Martha Stewart. As I always do for a first time recipe, I made it exactly […]
OK, so they don’t exist in the grocery store freezer section any more, and haven’t for quite a while. But you can easily make a close copy. I don’t remember exactly when they stopped existing, but I’m guessing it was about 18 years ago. If the internet had been around in any real way back […]

Last weekend I took the kids strawberry picking. I can’t believe we’d never done this before! We used this site to find a great pick-your-own farm. We’re all crazy about strawberries, so we were all enthusiastic. In fact, I had to cut the kids off at six pints. They wanted to pick more, but we’re […]
I’ve already written about the lovely launch party I went to last week for my friend Jennifer’s new cookbook Homemade With Love. And the baking lesson I took Fiona to and the wonderful cheese crackers the kids and I made. It was all fun and delicious. But here’s a little confession: as fun as it […]
On Saturday I took Fiona to a great event celebrating my good friend Jennifer Perillo’s new cookbook, Homemade With Love. It was hosted by KidzVuz, an amazing video review site for tweens and young teens owned by two other good friends of mine (do I have the most amazing friends, or what?). Fiona and I […]
