Yesterday, it seemed like it went from relatively warm to downright chilly in no time flat. It’s no wonder people say if you don’t like the weather here, wait five minutes — that is just how it is at this time of year in New England. And if you are unprepared, you can find yourself […]

It sounds vicious outside, the kind of rolling booms that make you want to curl up under a favorite quilt and huddle until it passes.

Whatever it is that you are making becomes more alive with the simple addition of little scrapes of peels. Really, it’s hard to believe that I was so resistant to using zest until recently. And why?

These last few days of warm weather have been absolutely blissful. We’ve eaten nearly every meal outside, playing before and after on the swings. The kids love every second of it. Heck, so do I. But it is a little hard to believe that it’s only April. I keep waiting for the weather to turn […]
