    Recipe: Colossal Shrimp with Israeli Couscous

    When I see an expensive ingredient on sale I grab it. Of course it’s about the monetary savings, but it’s also a way to keep shaking up the dinner routine and making something special once and a while for no reason other than lamb chops were on special. In this case it was shrimp. And... MORE

    Anatomy of a Cookbook Photo Shoot

    The writing and publishing of a cookbook is a real process.  Interested in immediate gratification?  Oof, this is not your line of work. The manuscript for The Mom 100 Family Table is finished, it’s being edited by my excellent editor Suzanne, and we are spending the entire week shooting all 100 recipes (plus variations!) in... MORE

    Recipe: One Pot Raspberry Oatmeal Bars

    So excited that Kohl’s Cares has selected The Mom 100 Cookbook to be featured in their kids program. This amazing program has raised over $257 million to support children’s health and educational initiatives across the country. In honor of their giving spirit, here is a little sneak preview of my next cookbook, The Mom 100 Family Table....

    A Second Serving of Atlantic Beach Pie

    Since this pie is perfect for summer, NPR is talking about it today.  Woo hoo!  I never get tired of this pie for one second. Get the recipe here & listen... MORE

  • Tropical Fruit Salsa

    Recipe: Tropical Fruit Salsa

    Friends brought over a tub of a salsa like this from a fancy market, and the crowds went wild (really, it was the adults, to be candid).  The next week when making pulled pork sandwiches, it seemed like a reincarnation of that salsa would be just the thing to top off the sandwiches.  Luckily the...

    9 Tips for Relaxed Entertaining and Menu Planning

    One of my very, very, very favorite things in the world is when I see someone who has been afraid of entertaining suddenly start to feel good about it. Two friends, Netta and Kate, who I work with, have recently begun to experience the little rush that comes with getting a dinner for friends together... MORE

  • Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

    Recipe: 
Slow Cooker Barbecue Pulled Pork


    It’s 8:00 a.m.  We leave for South Africa tomorrow morning at 8:30 a.m. Normal people would be packing now, maybe refilling prescriptions, suspending newspaper subscriptions.  That is what normal people would be doing. I am making pulled pork. Because I had a pork loin in the fridge, and there was no way in hell I... MORE

  • Carrot quinoa salad

    Sesame-Honey Quinoa and Carrot Salad with Sliced Avocado

    My family is going to South Africa in one week. My mother is taking us (and my sister’s family), a trip born of a “life is short, let’s not put off things we are dying to do” moment that we all experienced after my father died a little over a year ago. Carpe freaking diem.... MORE

    Recipe: Fried Eggs and Smoked Salmon over Polenta Cakes

    This is what’s happening for Father’s Day brunch in our house. The fact that I’m posting it the night before will be a true test of whether my husband reads my blog.  I get a pretty nice breakfast on Mother’s Day, and this is what’s heading Gary’s way tomorrow a.m. There is an ever-growing school...

  • partial breakfast bread pudding

    Recipe: Breakfast Challah, Smoked Cheddar and Sausage Bread Pudding

    Browning bananas = banana bread. Old rice = fried rice. Slightly stale bread = French toast……or bread pudding……or stratas (see Note). As the self-anointed queen of leftovers (no, no….please, don’t bow, it’s nothing quite so formal), I make it my mission to redeploy anything I can into a new meal. This was the happy collection...
