This morning. 5ish. The phone rings. Through my sleep, I mumble something about it being the school – perhaps a cancellation? Shawn answers the call. “There’s a 90 minute delay,” he tells me. No need to tune into the local radio station, because the school alerted us. Alarm clock switched to off. My, how things […]

In the summertime, we eat only fresh tomatoes — tiny ones that the kids pick directly from the vines on our backyard. Giant heirlooms from local organic farms. Red ones, orange ones, yellow ones and green ones … Sometimes it’s just plain. Sometimes with a little sprinkle of salt. Sometimes with cheese and vinaigrette. Yes, […]

When I order a breakfast sandwich, I want it to be messy. Back when I worked for a big publisher, the chef who did breakfast in the office cafeteria would always crack the egg yolk with the side of his spatula when cooking my ham, egg and cheese. It drove me bonkers. I like the […]

It’s not unusual for breakfast in my house to be buttered cinnamon raisin toast and a banana or yogurt. Most days during the week, I like to keep things really, really simple. The kids have school, I have work … we just don’t have time to fuss with complicated breakfasts. But sometimes I like to […]

If you are what you eat, then my four-year-old Will is a moist pancake with berries. To say he loves pancakes is like saying that the sun is lukewarm. Will’s devotion to pancakes is unreal. If we let him, Will would have a big stack of pancakes every single morning. But, that wouldn’t be good […]

Saturday was going to be a busy day. I knew that before I went to bed on Friday. Will had a birthday party to go to. We had plans of getting a Christmas tree (which didn’t happen … who knew that tree sellers would close before 7 p.m. on a Saturday, two weeks before Christmas. […]
