If Passover brisket preparation were an Olympic event, this year I may have medaled. By the end of the two-day marathon, every ounce of me smelled like brisket. My skin all but oozed the marinade.…The entire house emitted an odor. My brisket recipe, like most things worthwhile in my life, was unearthed from my very own Old Testament, The New York Times. It cooks in port wine and plums, as well as my own twist—a generous handful of fennel. It is a labor of love I knew I’d perfected… >> Read More
My husband and I took a trip away this past weekend, just the two of us, without the kids. This, in itself, is a rarity, and something we needed, enjoyed, and did not take for granted. I love my…children, but even I needed a break from hearing the morning screams of, "Mommy!!!", the temper tantrums, and hearing brothers fight over a stupid toy that, I swear, neither of them really wants to play with anyway. Our lives as a couple picked up right back to the days before kids. We roamed the streets… >> Read More
I was so excited. My husband was downstairs occupying our almost 3-year-old daughter after dinner while I was getting ready to go to the gym.

I had the best idea for dinner last night. I texted my husband at 9:30 a.m., completely aware that he had just finished his breakfast and wasn't even thinking about lunch yet, not to mention dinner.…I wrote, "Vegetarian lasagna?" As soon as I read back, "yes to lasagna," off I went to Trader Joe's. Craving only dairy lately, specifically cheese, I bolted straight to the cheese section. Was that water leaking from the ceiling, or was I really drooling? After examining and deliberating between all six containers of freshly grated… >> Read More
