Champagne three ways, good-for-you sprinkles, and baby carrier v2

Hi there, Is it only Wednesday? We had a jam-packed weekend with our friends Becca and Devin, who were in town from Vermont with their 3-year-old son, Henry. We even got a babysitter (highly recommend Sittercity—so easy) for a grown-up dinner at Roman’s—amazing family-style meal with plenty of wine. It’s one of my favorite Brooklyn restaurants; recipes from their … Continue reading Champagne three ways, good-for-you sprinkles, and baby carrier v2

Biking for breakfast, auditioning travel toys, and learning all about joy

Hi there, It was Rob’s birthday this past weekend and we’re still recovering from the festivities. My parents swooped in to take care of Lilly so we could spend a night on the North Fork. We stayed at Sound View, a gorgeously renovated motel right on the water, and did our best to cram in as … Continue reading Biking for breakfast, auditioning travel toys, and learning all about joy

Coffee upgrades, nondairy obsessions, and feeling un poco loco

Hi there! Today is Lilly’s 10-month birthday and time has, as my friend Allidah says, just evaporated. She’s just learned how to pull herself up to standing, which makes me both proud and terrified.

Hi there, I hope your Easter/Passover/April Fool’s weekends were lovely, and filled with lots of tasty treats. We don’t celebrate any of the above but we did have friends over for a spring (?) feast. Rob roasted an incredible leg of lamb and I made a chocolate-hazelnut crostata, basically a grown-up Nutella tart. Did you miss me last … Continue reading Auditioning a new granola and doubling down on greens + a guilty pleasure read

Instagram shopping for good, baby food tips, and a very special birthday party

Hi there, We were up in Maine this weekend, partly to give my parents their monthly Lilly fix, and partly to attend the 100th (!) birthday party of a dear family friend. Mr. Donnell lives by himself, plays Scrabble with my mom twice a week and volunteers at the local hospital. He says his secret is, “Just … Continue reading Instagram shopping for good, baby food tips, and a very special birthday party

Macro bowls, dry shampoo, and the return of The Good Fight (!)

Hi there, So it’s March! What do you know. I turned 35 last week, which felt like a good, solid milestone. I celebrated with plenty of tasty things, of course. Two highlights: dinner with Rob at Hart’s, a teeny Bed-Stuy restaurant that made Bon Appetit’s Best New Restaurant list for its unpretentious yet ambitious food and fun natural … Continue reading Macro bowls, dry shampoo, and the return of The Good Fight (!)

Scheduling downtime, breaking free of root vegetables, and raising a reader

Hi there, The day after a holiday weekend is never fun, and the gray weather this morning didn’t help. But the sun is out now, it’s forecasted to be 70 degrees tomorrow, and I’m working on ways to stay grounded and productive. Here’s what I’m up to this week: Taking a break from roasting: Sick … Continue reading Scheduling downtime, breaking free of root vegetables, and raising a reader

Valentine’s Day alternatives, athleisure faves, and a guaranteed-happy IG follow

Hi there, Funny thing about me: I dislike champagne, chocolate-covered strawberries, and roses, which makes me a walking Valentine’s Day contrarian. And yet, I am also the huggiest person you’ll ever meet, and I feel all the feelings on a daily basis. So I think of the holiday as a nice reminder to tell your … Continue reading Valentine’s Day alternatives, athleisure faves, and a guaranteed-happy IG follow
