Passover starts today, and if you’re like me, you hear the word matzo (matzo/matzah) and you run in the other direction. So I collaborated with Leah, from Leah’s Life, on some new twists on an old standby. These “tartines” are so simple to make, even I could swing it (but instead I basically watched Leah make them and […]

With kids (ok, well, with my kid) it’s all about the shape. When we go out to a meal, I have to ask what shape the noodles are in for the macaroni and cheese. What can I say, my son likes elbows not penne. So with Passover around the corner, we decided to take these […]

Easter is just over a week away and I wanted to give you some ideas for the perfect Easter baskets! You know, something a little different, not your average Reese’s and Cadbury baskets (although, Cadbury mini eggs are my weakness!). All of these items (with an exception of a few things) are from small (mostly […]

I’m pretty fussy about […]

When I was a kid, all I ever wanted to get for Valentine’s Day was that heart shaped box of Russell Stover chocolates, the bigger the better. Now that I’m an adult, I’ve moved on from those chocolates and wanted to share some heart shaped boxed chocolate alternatives for that someone special in your life. […]

With Super Bowl 51 just around the corner I thought I would do a post on easy to make snacks for the game. My friends at Willow Tree Farm sent me over some of their chicken dips to get the party started. So no matter which team you are cheering for (ahem, the Patriots), you’re […]

For those of you who are doing a last mad dash for presents the week before Christmas, head over to the CambridgeSide Galleria. It’s super easy to get to: you can drive there and parking is WAY cheaper than most city malls, you can take the T or you can get a shuttle bus. Oh, did […]

So here is part 2 of the holiday gift guide. First up, jewelry. Its hard to pick something out because jewelry is so personal (always include a gift receipt 😉 ) Here are the things I’m loving this season: Necklace from Banana Republic (top left) – For me, it’s go big or go home. I […]
