    Recently a friend of mine was bemoaning what I believe is a common predicament among parents—she basically said that having her kids help prepare a meal is great, in theory. She has two young children who like to help her cook. She loves that they’re interested, but since she’s... Read More

    I fell down an Internet rabbit hole the other night. I ended up spending more time than I’m willing to admit watching videos of people making knishes. Weird, right? It all started with my cousin Alison’s suggestion for this week’s post. She thought it might be fun to put a... Read More
