I’m Hungry: Santa & Squash

For the past few weeks, my daughter has been asking me about the cold hard truth surrounding Santa Claus. I thought I had another year before I needed to explain the complexities of Santa Claus because up until now, she’s never questioned us about it.  I really believed my 11 -year old daughter, a self-professed believer, would have one more Christmas ...

I’m Hungry: To my daughter (& granola)

Every time we receive a blog from our friends over at Pepper + Paint we’re so consumed by the beautiful stories and writing at the beginning that we almost forget there’s a recipe with it too!

I’m Hungry: Parenting & Peaches

A friend sent me an excerpt from a book I have just ordered called “The Conscious Parent.”  By Shefali Tsabary, PhD.  A book I absolutely cannot wait to begin. One of the passages struck me so deeply that I began to weep when I saw the words printed in black and white. “Whether you have an infant or a teen, ... Read More »

I’m Hungry: Strawberries

Ahhh Strawberries!!  A sure sign of summer…and of my childhood. Spending sunny afternoons in my grandmother’s garden picking them was a tradition. Hulling them with my dad was a competition (that I usually won!). Making them into jam with my mother was a ritual.  But spreading that jam on a piece of homemade bread was a pure delight! Of course ... Read More »

I’m Hungry: great educators & coucscous

Another school year has come to a rapid end and I find myself in the same predicament I do every year; with good intentions to make unique and thoughtful presents for our wonderful teachers but with very little time for proper planning and executing. And that translates into boring old gift cards. My teacher friends tell me that these offerings ... Read More »

Today is my thirty-ninth birthday which means two things. 1) It’s been 10 years since my champagne birthday which seems ridiculously impossible and 2) Another bottle of champagne is in order. My thirties so far have been so rich and full and abundant. So many milestones have been a part of this decade and not for a second have I ... Read More »

I’m Hungry: Bedtime Snuggles & A Sandwich

Last night, while I was leaving my son¹s room after tucking him in, I heard the faintest and sweetest little voice. “Mommy? Please come back?” When I returned, he asked me if I could sit with him for a while and sing just one more song. He had just taken a bath and his hair was wispy and covering the ... Read More »

I’m Hungry: Siblings and a Soup

My daughter is a spirited storyteller. When she was younger and not able to read or write yet, I’d record her stories in a special journal because I wanted her to remember the light and creativity that seeped from her beautiful little mind. That she had the ability to express herself through radiant little tales. Poetic tales. The other day, ... Read More »
