    Among this summer’s many highlights was the marriage of my cousin Danny to his partner, Bryan. For almost a year, we knew the date and the venue: early August at a beautiful estate in Connecticut where we’d rent cabins and stay for the weekend. All summer long, my sister Jackie... Read More

    I’m not one of those parents who celebrate Back-To-School time- I love summer, hanging out with my kids more often, and not making lunches every morning. Sending them back to school dovetails with my own work schedule going from laid-back to crazy, so it’s a double kind of... Read More

    My summer has gotten away from me, as it often does. I’ve gone on vacations, attended weddings and spent more than a fair amount of time in the sun, but I realize now, as the end of summer approaches, that I have completely ignored one of my favorite parts of this season: homemade ice...

    I recently took a spur-of-the-moment vacation to Maine, where a couple of friends and I decided to turn off our phones and unplug at the beach for a few days. I’m as game for relaxing as much as the next person, but for me, the true allure of a seaside retreat is the food. A beach day... Read More

    A couple of weeks ago, I helped plan and cater a bridal shower for two of my dear friends. It was an intimate affair, attended mostly by family and held at my home. We gathered flowers from Russo’s and created a make-ahead menu using many of the recipes I’ve featured on this blog,... Read More

    Neely Cohen may not quite be Willy Wonka, but she’s as close to my lifelong fictional idol as possible. Last year Neely won the Food Network’s “Sweet Genius” dessert-making competition show and is now planning the opening of a chocolate factory and café in New... Read More

    My roommates and I have started a new tradition called “Chicken Wednesday.” We’re nothing if not creative, and it’s just what it sounds like: One of us whips up a bunch of chicken on the grill and everyone else is responsible for the accoutrements. This week we had our... Read More

    With August nearly upon us, I thought it best to chat with a local artisan ice cream maker. It turns out Kasey Fechtor has more than just a pint of fresh, homemade ice cream up her sleeve. I spoke with the budding pastry chef about her route from the world of advertising to the kitchen,... Read More

    Last weekend I made my first trip of the summer to Provincetown for my friends’ wedding. While there, I was told by a coworker that I wasn’t allowed to leave town until I tried his friends’ new sandwich shop, Pop + Dutch. I did as I was told and left the store with one of... Read More

    If you’ve grabbed a meal downtown or off a food truck and didn’t pay with cash or a card, there’s a good chance Seth Priebatsch had a hand in that purchase. Seth’s invention, LevelUp, has changed the way we pay for things. I asked him how it all works and the future... Read More
