    I fell down an Internet rabbit hole the other day. It all started with an article about what athletes eat while training for the Olympics. From there, I hopped over to a blog post about how popular McDonald’s is with the participants (especially the snowboarders). Then, out of curiosity,... Read More

    I’ve run the gamut of Valentine’s Day experiences. And while I’m rather indifferent to the general idea of the holiday, no celebration I’ve had as an adult has ever matched the ones from when I was a kid. I remember the excitement of picking out the perfect cards (in my... Read More

    Having grown up with two Jewish grandmothers, I’d say being a bubbie is a pretty good gig. You’re the matriarch of a family that adores you. You’re allowed to kvetch over your relatives. You’re expected to kvell over your grandchildren. And, perhaps best of all,... Read More

January and February are the two months that most people are still going strong with their healthy eating resolutions—until the calorie minefield that is... Read More

    Soon after I moved out on my own and started cooking my own meals, I acquired a bad case of food indecisiveness. I no longer had to take anyone else’s likes or preferences into consideration when preparing my meals—it was whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted. The possibilities were... Read More

    For me, eating out at a restaurant is as much a research project as it is an enjoyable hobby. I mean it in a good way—I’m constantly surveying menus for good ingredient combinations that I can try at home and thinking of ways to replicate great dishes in my own kitchen. The latest... Read More

    I always have high hopes for my December vacation days. I make extended to-do lists, intend to clean out the junk drawer, and make plans with friends. But every year, most of my plans get trumped by the rare opportunity to laze around in my pajamas and watch movies. Last year, I made bagels to... Read More

    The kosher food scene in Boston just got more exciting—the Mediterranean food truck and restaurant The Chubby Chickpea is now glatt kosher. I chatted with executive chef Avi Shemtov about his choice to go kosher and what not to miss on his menu. And yes, they’re open on Christmas Day!... Read More
