Well hello, gorgeous! If you've got kids, I probably don't have to explain what "Parents Need to Eat Too" means. But I will anyway: I make food for grownups that also pleases even the earliest eaters (as in my cookbook, all the recipes here end with instructions for using what you've cooked as baby food). And that kid holding the artichoke up there is so stubborn I like to call him "non-nivorous," so you'll find plenty of picky-eater posts. (Even he is powerless in the face of The Best Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies in the Entire World.) Poke around a bit, and if you like what you see maybe you'll subscribe to my newsletter or RSS feed. Or "like" me on Facebook. Or follow me on Twitter. So many options! Thanks for visiting. Did I mention how nice you look today?

If you’re ever wondering where I am (and I’d be absolutely tickled to think that someone actually is wondering that), check my Facebook page. I post something on there nearly every day, ...Keep Reading
In addition to a haircut from Harry, I got a pair of sweet Mother’s Day gifts this weekend: Two of my favorite food writers posted blush-inducing (in me, anyway) reviews of Parents Need to Eat Too, complete with giveaways: Carolyn Cope, aka Umami Girl, had this to say: Parents Need to Eat Too is a smart, ...Keep Reading
I’m all about homemade baby food—it’s easy (especially when you use what you’re already cooking for yourself) and inexpensive, since you’re not buying jars. That’s why every recipe in my cookbook ends with a section called “Make Baby Food.” And why I’m speaking on the topic at a MommyBites luncheon on May 16. But surprise: ...Keep Reading
Oprah’s web site posted my recipe for Hail Mary Pasta, the one from my cookbook! WHOA. I can totally see it: One night, the Lady O herself was sweating bullets that Stedman was on his way home when she hadn’t even started dinner yet, so she tossed some vegs into the oven & put on water ...Keep Reading
