One of the things I love most about eating seasonally is that it gives the seasons and the weather real meaning. Each week of the growing season brings new possibilities. Last year, an early spring meant favorite summer fruits showed up almost a month early. This year, things are arriving more or less on schedule, so we’re still waiting for strawberries and asparagus (though we do have ramps!). read more »
The fact is, I’ve never been big on Valentine’s Day. When I was single and living in Boston, one Valentine’s Day I stopped by the market to get a half pound of fish. The guys at the counter were like, “A half pound? Eating alone? (Awww, she’s eating alone.)” But really I didn’t mind. Even now, I think of it more as the fourth anniversary of our building’s basement catching fire. So, though Brian and I are definitely meant for each other, and I count myself lucky for finding such a great man, neither of us is particularly keen on the trappings of Valentine’s Day. We’re not that big on soul mates, chocolate, crafting, or candles. read more »
I tossed and turned thinking about this post last night. There are so many things to share and so many stories to tell. The short version is, I spent the weekend at the Big Summer Potluck, met a million fantastic, warm, funny, inspiring and talented bloggers, had a great time (delighted to be away from my girls for a little bit), and got inspired.

Brooklyn Supper headquarters is starting to gear up for Thanksgiving. It’s our favorite holiday, and we take it pretty seriously. Though we’re expecting an intimate group this year we’re still going to do it up right. This week we blogged about a few Thanksgiving-worthy salad options over on Babble’s Family Kitchen. These recipes are also great for everyday dinner, or brown bag lunches. Now that chilly weather has arrived here in NYC I’m really enjoying the warmer side of fall foods. Here are three seasonal fall salads sure to add another layer of cozy to this wonderful time of year.
Green salad with bacon, pears and buttermilk dressing
Roast cauliflower salad with dried cherries and horseradish
Spicy roast squash salad with parsley
Brian and I have been cooking a plethora of vegan delights over on Babble’s Family Kitchen. Click through for some delicious and simple vegan recipes.
