    First there was Thanksgiving and Hanukkah. And this weekend, there are two more overlapping holidays: Purim and St. Patrick’s Day. So, St. Patrick’s Day may not be as universal a holiday as Thanksgiving, but a celebration is a celebration—especially when it includes an excuse... Read More

    This winter has been very long and very, very cold. But there is a light at the end of the frigid, wintry tunnel, and it occurs on Sunday, March 9. That’s daylight saving time, and I’m looking forward to it even more than usual this year. So much so that this week, I decided to... Read More

    I don’t have any real ties to New Orleans. I’ve visited every state that surrounds Louisiana, and although the city has been a longtime fixture at the top of my list of future vacation destinations, I haven’t yet been. But you don’t have to live there or have visited to... Read More

    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

    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

    “Restaurant Wings at Home” isn’t just a clever title that promises homemade chicken wings that are just as good as you’ll find in a restaurant. These are, quite literally, restaurant wings you can prepare at home. In a post-playoffs haze of sadness, I suspected... Read More

    In the battle of New Year celebrations, I think the Chinese take the title of best food. (Gefilte fish isn’t doing much for Rosh Hashanah, and even Hoppin’ John can’t compete with traditional Chinese New Year dishes.) As far as I can tell, the only drawback of Chinese cuisine... Read More

    The person who decided that playoff football should always take place at the beginning of the year must have had a fast metabolism. 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
