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 or Pinterest. So many options! Thanks for visiting. Did I mention how nice you look today?

I realize most of my readers are probably not men, but I’ll bet you can figure out a way to sneak this in front of your significant other: I’m teaching a cooking class for folks who’ve never made anything more than toast, a simple Mother’s Day meal that’ll knock your socks off—especially since your non-cooking partner will […]
Just a quicker-than-quick update on my doings at BabyCenter… Making your own baby food is ridiculously easy, as long as you use what you’re already cooking for yourself. It’s the whole idea behind the “make baby food” postscript that ends all my recipes. Get the lowdown on how to turn anything you cook into baby […]
My day is made. Possibly my week. The Kitchn, one of my favorite food sites, just checked in with a rave for Parents Need to Eat Too: Debbie has long written one of my favorite food blogs, Words to Eat By. She’s smart and funny, and a terrific writer. Her first book is all about […]
