Our local farmers market opened for the season yesterday (finally!). It used to be an all-organic market that was held just down the street from me. Just minutes away, it was tucked away in the parking lot of a local church. Then it moved a little downtown then a little across town. Throw in a [...]
If you’d asked me back in November how I’d feel with just a few days of school left for the kids, I would probably have said something about approaching it with a mixture of dread and excitement. I love summertime, and appreciate all the freedom it offers us to spend long, lazy days at the [...]
Sitting in a dimly lit restaurant with good company, enjoying good conversation and mouthwatering food and drinks — it’s a colossal treat. A joy, even. To say that we don’t get out enough is the understatement of the century — so when I was asked to go out for a nice dinner and sample drinks [...]
Thanks to UncommonGoods for sponsoring this fun post. When my dear friend Rhian got married a few years ago, she didn’t want any wedding gifts. Her wedding was an intimate affair on Cape Cod, where we gathered for a simple ceremony and a laid-back reception. But I’ve known her for nearly 20 years, and I [...]
Dole Whip This pineapple-flavored soft serve is amazing. Last year when we went to Walt Disney World for Food Blog Forum, we stayed at the Polynesian Resort — and I even picked up a quick dinner at the quick serve restaurant there known for its self-serve Dole Whip machines.

At Food Blog Forum at Walt Disney World earlier this month, one of the Disney World chefs decorated a cupcake to look like Sully from Monsters University (and Monsters Inc.) and she made it look so easy — see for yourself! This was so amazing to watch that I decided to capture it on video.
When I was entering the third grade, I transferred from a public school where I had many friends to a catholic school where I had none. While my public school friends were still my friends, I went to my new school every day wondering when I would feel the level of comfort and fitting in [...]
Sarah’s Note: Today’s post comes from a fabulous magazine writer and Etsy seller, Jen Matlack. When she asked if I might want to run this piece here, I couldn’t say no. Enjoy, and see you Monday. Guest Post by Jennifer Matlack Contrary to what you might think, the tops of root vegetables aren’t lowly leaves [...]
When I reflect on my early days of blogging, I remember struggling with the role of self in blog posts. I was a journalist testing the waters in this completely unfamiliar territory, and I wanted to do it right. Coming from a journalism perspective, it felt unnatural to use “I” in my posts but at [...]
