    I love the Mother’s Day commercials that depict perfect-looking children sneaking into their parents’ bedroom and waking their mother with a platter of homemade breakfast foods, which the smiling woman immediately pops out of bed to eat. But as we know, these commercials aren’t... Read More

    Last Sunday’s perfect weather couldn’t have come at a better time. Our brand-new grill had just been delivered, and my roommates and I had a refrigerator full of fresh produce and protein thanks to an early-morning trip to Russo’s in Watertown. The birds were singing, our... Read More

    Life has started to return to normalcy since the events of last week. We’ve finally gotten our feet—and running shoes, for many—back under us and are ready to start healing. I believe that food can play a part in that healing process. My neighborhood Whole Foods Market... Read More

    I had originally planned to share the following recipe to encourage those of you who aren’t training to be marathoners to still carbo-load like one. But Monday’s events changed my plan, as they did everyone else’s. Fortunately, this recipe is also a great comfort food dish, in a... Read More

Catherine and I share a kitchen, so I knew that she was planning on serving her go-to meal: Jamie Oliver’s Spicy Moroccan Stewed... Read More

    Now that my forced low-carb Passover diet is over, I’ve started hitting the bread again—hard. So when my girlfriend, Kate, came home with a baguette, some smoked bluefish, and a reputable recipe for bluefish pâté, I recognized the makings of a mini post-Passover... Read More

    “Steamed fish and vegetables” sounds like diet food. (And unappealing diet food, at that.) Whenever I read it on a menu, I think of drab, pallid fish with no flavor and even less in the way of appealing texture. But take a cue from the French: steaming can be sophisticated. In... Read More

    I’ve already spoken about my love for latkes. While I indulge as much as possible during Hanukkah, it’s hard to justify eating them other times of the year. That is, except for Passover. Not only are all of the latke ingredients kosher for Passover (or easily made kosher for Passover... Read More

    Monday night, Jewish families around the country sat down for the usual first night Passover seder, complete with 4 cups of wine, bitter herbs, a shank bone and parsley with salt water. But the day before, a group of Massachusetts and Rhode Island middle-schoolers sat down with BBYO to have a... Read More
