be my valentine!

February 14, 2013


Happy Valentine’s Day, friends! What are you doing to celebrate? I’m going to see War Horse at the Paramount with a girlfriend tonight (had to pick between that and going to see Al Gore by myself), and tomorrow night I’m being taken to dinner at Shanik! I’m so excited to cross another restaurant off my list. […]

christmas cookery

December 22, 2012


I'm plowing ahead with menu-planning this year, and I've come up with too many things to make for 2 meals.

LivingSocial’s DIY Holiday Entertaining Class

Elizmas is Elizabeth’s birthday and since she loves Christmas so much, we’ve made it into a perfect mash-up. We use Elizmas to take advantage of all of the holiday activities […]

Holiday Cookie Extravaganza

December 8, 2011


I spent all of last Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights covered in flour and overly hot thanks to our ambitious plan to bake 5 different kinds of holiday cookies and fudge. Not only did we endeavor to make six kinds of baked goods, but we also doubled each recipe – resulting in hundreds of cookies […]

Thanksgiving 2011

November 25, 2011


Two vegetarians, one vegan and five omnivores gathered to eat one hell of a Thanksgiving dinner at my apartment last night. You’ve already read about the menu, but here are a few photos of the feast. For dessert, we had apple pie, cherry pie and German Chocolate pie – oh my! I made this menu […]
