mighty fun (seriously)

ace hotel, palm springs

November 29th, 2012

Camp Mighty was about a lot of things for me. It was about staying the course (thanks, Ame), and allowing myself to own the fact that I want to make “something” of this little blog of mine (though what that “something” is remains to be seen – and I’m owning that too). It was about […]

Three easy kids’ holiday crafts that you and your littles can pull together in an afternoon!


just a pinch: vinegar

pasta with shrimp tomatoes and lemon vinaigrette

November 26th, 2012

So if you thought I knew next to nothing about olive oil….well, I know even less about vinegar. The collection in my pantry has been amassed solely based on whatever my various recipes called for – and it’s about as uninspired as it gets. Red wine, balsamic, apple cider and all-purpose white. Yawn. While I […]


a break. a pause.

November 24th, 2012

This month has been an especially hectic and busy one – but filled with all good things, so I’m feeling most, most grateful. I’ve taken some time before and after my recent trip to enjoy these sweet and special breaks in the action, and trying hard to just pause and enjoy. Noah turned 4, and […]

So if you follow me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, you know that I was recently in Palm Springs, attending Camp Mighty. I’ve been thinking a lot about how to share it all with you. What you might find most interesting, and maybe even helpful to you on your own journey. So I figured I’d […]


bacon. good.

November 19th, 2012

Hi all! I just got back from four amazing days at Camp Mighty, in glorious Palm Springs. It was an experience unlike any I’ve ever had and I can’t wait to share it all with you over the coming weeks. But first – bacon. I consider myself an accomplished cook, with pretty sophisticated taste. And […]


just a pinch: olive oil

salad with toasted walnuts cherries and apples, garlic mushroom vinaigrette

November 16th, 2012

Olive oil is definitely one of those ingredients that I knew very little about. Basically, I knew that you  “cooked” with the regular stuff and “tasted” with the extra virgin, and for years that’s all I kept in my kitchen. And then our farmer’s market manager gave me a brief schooling in the art – […]


another one rides the bus

November 14th, 2012

Do you ever get a thought stuck in your head about something –  a movie, restaurant, vacation spot – based solely on a random opinion you heard? You know what I mean; I do this all the time. And then Mike will say to me, “want to go to (fill in the blank)?” And I’ll […]


plant your spring garden…now? (yes)

yarrow and catmint

November 12th, 2012

I know, I know – you’re saying – really, Sheri? With the gardening? It’s November – can’t I just be DONE already? Almost. By this time of year most of us (especially in the Northeast – ESPECIALLY in light of recent weather-related events) are winding things down in the garden. Outdoor chores are limited to raking […]


just a pinch: maple syrup

November 9th, 2012

I’ve been thinking about ingredients lately. As many of us are trying to eat with more thought and good intent, the quality of the ingredients we use becomes even more important. And overall, I think I’m pretty good about that. I support our local farmer’s markets. I try to avoid processed foods. I buy a […]
