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?

It’s growing every time, which is a wonderful thing. And two, thank you to everyone who participated. It was genuinely exciting (and a little overwhelming) ...Keep Reading
Lately I’ve noticed a rush of cauliflower recipes on food blogs—likely because we’re in the throes of a seemingly endless winter and we’re all working with what limited fresh vegetables we can get. There have been postings by Elise at Simply Recipes, Heidi at 101 Cookbooks, and Joe at Gothamist Food (and Foodie), and I’m ...Keep Reading
