I wanted to name this post “Brooklyn Schmooklyn”. But, really? I know that I’ve gone on and on (and on) about how much I love Brooklyn, and have shared many of my favorite places with you (and there’s more to come!). But I started to feel badly about neglecting the place I’ve called home for […]

October 26th, 2011

I typically avoid any recipe that calls for peeling acorn squash. Have you ever tried it? It’s practically impossible – hard, thick skin and all those ridges…………. I came across a recipe years ago for a creamy winter squash soup. It called for an acorn and butternut squash, peeled and cubed. I was about to […]

This trip was a perfect reminder of why I started my “Thursdays with Noah”. Remember? I was going to  “let the day unfold at Noah’s pace”, and “see what would happen if I let him take the lead, spending as much or as little time along the way as he wanted“. Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge is […]

These cookies: were the very last things I baked with Chelsea before she went back to school in the fall. They were made in an attempt to ward off all the sad feelings I know we were both having in anticipation of her leaving.  I was looking for a recipe that screamed “HAPPY” and really, […]
