Musings of a mom of 3, freelance copyeditor, voracious reader, and enthusiastic cook.

Back in 2004....


Once again it's time to take note of the fact that another year has gone by, and as of today it's now been a whopping 14 years since I started this blog! As I mentioned last year, social media and...

Valentine's Day Dinner


A few weeks ago, I made an old favorite dish that I'd kind of forgotten about—Arroz con Pollo—and was reminded of why it had been a favorite. This version is a bit of work, but nothing too difficult, and it's...



You know those "sponsored posts" (read: ads) that show up in your Instagram or Facebook feed? Usually I scroll right on by, but now and then one catches my eye. In truth, it's more than "now and then": I find...

Rotten Food


The title of this post does not refer to the yummy recipe below, but rather to my new composting service! For the last few weeks, I've been using City Compost to pick up and cart away all my kitchen scraps—and...

For a Sweet New Year (Belatedly)


I want to share a recipe with you, but first I realize I didn't mention this yet: Last month was a one-night-only screening of May It Last, the documentary that Judd Apatow made about the Avett Brothers. I had bought...

The Kinder


Steph is a junior at Wheelock and still loving her Early Childhood Education program. Some of you may have seen a news item that Wheelock is (likely) going to become part of Boston University! So Steph would graduate from BU's...

End of the Summer


Ha, you thought I wasn't going to blog in August, didn't you! This will be yet another of my famous catching-up posts. This has not been my favorite summer, as I didn't do a very good job with the work-life...
