If it wasn’t for the 8-12 hours per week spent in a chemistry or biology lab during college, I might not have this obsession with ingredients and formulas. For the past ten years or so, I’ve gradually eliminated foods and beauty products that contain chemicals and/or other harmful ingredients. The main reason why I decided […]

For the past month or so, beginning around Thursday, my kids ask when I will be making “lemon cotta pancakes”. It’s not unusual for me to make pancakes on the weekend, but I try to play up the variety in order to evolve their palates. I adapted this practice back when my oldest refused to […]

As with most holiday menus, I spend a night scouring the web for interesting twists on good ol’ standards. Martha Stewart (one of my idols) arranges her menus into specific slideshow categories, making it simple to find what you’re looking for. Most of my usual holiday guests know that I like to offer a little […]
