  1. Announcing… my new website!

    Hi friends! I launched a new website! It’s called these are details, and it’s about feel-good food and motherhood. I decided to start fresh, because, suddenly, I’m a mom of three, and my world has morphed from kale smoothies to microwavable egg sandwiches (those frozen Evol sandwiches have saved me).

Let me know what you think! Lemon Ricotta Pancakes Makes 6-8 4-inch pancakes 1 cup ricotta… Read More

  5. Consumed By Our Things

    I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting on life throughout our migration west. One of the things that stands out the most is how much “stuff” we have accumulated and how little we need any of it. (Apologies for the gruesome photo.)   In the last 10 years, we have lived in 6 different dwellings: 3 in DC, 2 in NY, and now 1 in CA.  We’ve amassed 2 storage… Read More

  6. Sneaky Ways to Be Active with a Sedentary Lifestyle

    One thing that changes when you move from NY to CA is that you drive, like everywhere. I knew I’d miss the effortlessly active lifestyle we left in New York.
