I tried Blue Apron’s meal delivery service

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

First, let’s review the facts: – I really like to cook. – But after a full day of work and baby wrangling, I don’t have a lot of energy left. – I try to create a weekly meal plan and do all the grocery shopping in one fell swoop. – Creating a weekly meal plan […]

Holiday gift ideas 2014

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

Last weekend, in a moment of sheer madness, we decided to walk the baby over to Rockefeller Center and pick up a few gifts. Oh, lawsy, the CROWDS, the tourists, the shoppers, all elbowing each other and trying to snap selfies with the Tree, the Tree, the Tree!!! My holiday panic officially set in. In case you’re […]

Happy Halloween!

Friday, October 31st, 2014

Last year, Lucy was too little for a Halloween costume. But this year, she decided to dress up as her favorite food: CHEESE. (Or did her food-loving mother decide for her? She can’t talk yet so… you decide.) Inspired by my visit to Wisconsin and this brilliant blogger, I made her a cheese costume. (And when […]

Eggplant: To salt or not to salt?

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

I recently got into a discussion online about salting eggplant. Do you salt yours? I usually do not because I like to: A) avoid excess salt, and B) avoid extra steps in the kitchen. But the other people participating in this discussion indicated that I was wrong, very wrong. Curious about whether salting eggplant is really worth it, […]

Gone fishin’

Friday, August 1st, 2014

Happy August! It’s officially cucumber time and I’m taking the  month off from blogging. Instead of fishing for fish, I’ll be fishing for words—I hope to use this time to make some serious progress on my new book. As I’m not actually going anywhere,  I’ll still be doing LOTS of cooking at home. If you’re […]

What are cheese mites?

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014

I’ve been curious about cheese mites ever since I learned about them while visiting friends in St-Etienne. Before we dug into one of the many (many, many) local cheeses, my host tapped some powder off its surface into a small glass bowl, and handed me a magnifying glass. I saw a bunch of crumbs moving constantly, […]

Where I’m at

Monday, March 3rd, 2014

I’m blogging at BonAppétit.com this week (I was there last week, too) — I hope you’ll stop by to read some of my posts! (Here’s one on ordering a kings cake for Mardi Gras, which is tomorrow (already), eek!) Last night I visited the restaurant, Daniel, to snap behind-the-scenes shots of their Oscar party (a couple […]

Ricardo strikes again

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013

Remember Ricardo? (In case you’ve forgotten, check out this post.) Well, this morning I received this text: Made me laugh :)  


Sunday, September 8th, 2013

We are thrilled to welcome a daughter, born last Monday in New York. Her name is Lutetia Rose and we call her Lucy. Lutetia is the ancient Roman name for Paris and we hope she’ll love her namesake city as much as we do. We got home from the hospital on Wednesday and the days […]

Cucumber time

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

I learned a new phrase the other day: Cucumber time. According to this New York Times blog post, that’s what they call the “slow news season” in the Netherlands. Yes, the period we’re in right now — when headlines like “Kate Middleton’s Dress Sells Out After Royal Baby Photo Shoot” make the front page — […]
