Happy little Sunday things.

This time of year, every weekend feels like the best weekend ever. This one was not any different — it was full of many new things, a sure sign that spring is here and that we are ready for it. 1. A few weeks ago, I cut my long hair to just above my shoulders […]

Crustless spinach + cheddar quiche.

The very first time that I decided to bake a quiche, my ingredient and methodology requirements were very different from what they are today. What do I mean? I was looking to make myself a dinner that was a) vegetarian, b) on-the-cheap, c) composed of ingredients that I could readily identify and locate in a […]

Happy little Sunday things.

My Easter weekend was the best. I headed home to Connecticut to spend the holiday with my family. It was two days full of cooking, eating, catching up, and talking about how nice it is to finally see some sunshine. Remember all that talk a couple of weeks back about lions and lambs? Here’s to […]

Happy little Sunday things.

On Friday afternoon, my boss sent me an email with the following message: “On this first weekend of spring, I have to share this observation (heard on NPR on the 20th): ‘The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as […]

Avocado egg salad.

Most of the time, I forget about egg salad. I’m not sure why — it’s one of those good old foods, one of those at-home foods. My mother didn’t make it all the time, but she always did something or other with the leftover eggs from our yearly Easter morning egg hunt, and often it […]

A salad for spring.

Guys. It’s here. It’s happened. It’s spring! Well, sort of. You see, I woke up yesterday morning to this great mess: Yep, Cambridge, once again, all frosty and white, slushy and miserable. I was determined to make the best of it and, despite the snow not magically turning into daffodils at the stroke of midnight […]

Happy little Sunday things.

This weekend’s activities and musings are foregrounded by my anticipation and excitement for the coming of spring. For the past few weeks, I have been imagining waking up the morning of 20 March (which is this Wednesday, guys) to red-breasted robins chirping, daffodil blossoms advancing, and the winter-white skins of the citygoers imbibing their first […]

On lions and lambs: Boston in March.

In March in Boston, a little bit of sunshine goes a long way. Let’s get things straight: I am — ostensibly — a morning person to the greatest degree. I usually wake up when it’s still dark outside — to read in bed, to drink cup after cup of tea, to boil eggs, to do […]

Happy little Sunday things.

1. Despite our latest delivery of snow this week, it feels like spring is finally on its way to Boston. The weekend has been sunny and bright and full of smiling pedestrians carrying big bouquets of cut-fresh flowers. Days like this are positively¬†made for slow jogs on The Esplanade in the most fluorescent of fluorescent-pink […]
