When my husband and I moved to our town, I didn’t realize what a small town we were moving to. I mean, in theory, I knew. The main street is a small drag with a few well-frequented businesses. The school district has neighborhood schools, which all seem a stone’s throw away from where the kids […]

The sun is shining. I know, it doesn’t sound like much, but the first six or so weeks of winter here were marked with gray skies and ever-impending snow. The harsh weather was unlike anything I’d experienced before, and for the first time, I understood the winter blues. I was frantic — trying to harness […]

Last week, Rivki encouraged me to be adventurous with veggies in the winter, since it’s better to enjoy what you are eating then to stick to what’s inexpensive. It makes a lot of sense. I rarely eat beef, instead opting for chicken or turkey or fish, so I spend less on proteins these days. So, […]

Happy Eat. Live. Be. day! You know, we are hitting the point where many people abandon their resolutions or yearly goals and fall back into old habits. That’s why it’s so perfect that this week’s topic is Rut Rescue. Don’t we all fall into ruts sometime? In fact, I think last week I was talking […]

Yesterday, I didn’t feel like eggs in the morning. Or oatmeal. Or cereal. Or anything vaguely resembling a “normal” breakfast. I just didn’t. It reminded me of my younger days when breakfast foods were persona non grata in my life. But I’ve made a concerted effort in recent years to eat breakfast because it’s good […]

Everyone has favorites. Will adores pancakes in a way I never imagined possible. Paige loves eggs so much, I swear chickens run away in fear. Shawn practically drools when he glimpses a well-marbled steak. Me? I have many favorites, but when it comes to vegetables there is one that stands apart. Brussels sprouts. Love them. […]

There’s a reason that I never ever boil veggies, and it’s probably not what you think. Are you ready for this? My kids would eat them. Shawn would eat most. But me? I can’t stand boiled vegetables and won’t eat them at all. Maybe I am a teensy picky in that respect. But steam them, […]

Whenever I start to talk about my kids’ eating habits, I pause to admit how blessed I am. They aren’t picky. Heck, they eat almost everything and will try anything once. I know I am lucky — and I know that other parents aren’t so lucky. And why do I know that? Of course, I […]

This morning we awoke to the tsk-tsk sounds of sleet falling outside. My dogs, who adore going outside early in the morning in the spring, summer and fall, quickly went back to bed when they saw it coming down. Clearly, winter is coming (a fact that intellectually makes sense, but practically really doesn’t hit you […]
