The Reasons I Changed My Name. And Changed It Back.

The Reasons I Changed My Name When I Got Married It was a symbol that we were a single family. A sign of love and devotion. Almost every woman I’d ever known had done it. I’d planned to change my name my entire life. I wasn’t far ...

Dinner, Plated Style

Kid-Friendly Recipe: Rainbow Rice

So technically this is Jambalaya, but since we wanted Graham to eat it we called it “Rainbow Rice.” Remember all those peppers we used for his rainbow lunches this week? It was a pretty big success so we tried to see if we could expand ...

A Perfect Summer Treat

I’ve had this idea for ages. I wanted to do it for Graham’s birthday last year but never got around to it. But this year, especially with help from my mom and sister, we pulled it off. Birthday cakes tend to be too heavy, too rich and ...

Lunch at Common Ground

When I heard there was a third lunch at Common Ground in Allston that I wouldn’t be able to go to, I figured I’d throw caution to the wind and just go, kids in tow. Why let the kids destroy all the fun? And why not take advantage of the ...

Taste of the Nation Boston 2012

I was hugely excited to get to attend Taste of the Nation, one of Boston’s biggest food events. As a relative newcomer I’m still getting to know the must-eat restaurants of the city and it was great to get a chance to try so much food ...

Bruncher Moms at Scollay Square

Last weekend was the Boston Marathon. The weather was gorgeous. So when I headed down to the city center on Saturday I wasn’t surprised to see the Common swarming with people. Bostonians sat on the grass enjoying the sun. Tourists eagerly ...

The Brunchers Do Dinner: Maximo’s

I rarely get to make dinner plans, but the stars recently aligned so that I got a last minute opportunity to join the Boston Brunchers for dinner at Maximo’s in Watertown. Because I was a last minute addition I wasn’t sure what I was ...

Brunch with Bakers’ Best Catering

I wasn’t sure I’d be able to make it out with the Boston Brunchers at the end of February. After all, I had a baby coming and I had no idea when she’d arrive or how my recovery would go. Lucky for me she came a little early and I ...
