Meredith's Feast

Now that Meredith has a couple teeth, she’s graduated to eating food other than milk- and she sure seems to be enjoying it! We’ll teach her about napkins later!

Little Meredith gets a little bigger

It’s been an extraordinary year watching our second child, Meredith, begin the journey of life.  With every gurgle, burp, and heart-melting smile, she has been a constant source of joy. Prentiss fell completely in love with her little sister right away… It was a big day when Meredith finally took a pacifier… but already, as […]

Summertime, and the living is busy… and fun, too!

Hello everyone!  I CANNOT believe that August is more than halfway over already… every single year I am so amazed at how fast the summer flies by.  I know, I know- I haven’t been that good at keeping up with this blog lately.  But my days have been chock full of activity and summer fun.  […]

The Fourth of July

I love the 4th! It’s so nice to think that the entire country- and that’s a LOT of people- is taking some time off to celebrate.  This year I went with my family to Coney Island for the day.  It was incredibly fun.  Coney Island is on the edge of Brooklyn, NY, so it’s right […]

Romantic advice that worked!

A friend of mine came to me a couple of weeks ago with a classic dilemma: he had a huge crush on a beautiful woman, and he wasn’t quite sure how to tell her.  He asked me if he should give her flowers.  Well, OF COURSE you should give her flowers, I said!  If I […]

The Meijer Shoot

Another reason I’ve gotten to spend so much time in Massachusetts is that we’ve been doing a huge photo shoot for Meijer, the grocery-and-everything-else stores in the Midwest.  We did 60 recipes and almost 200 photos- it was a lot of work, but we had a great time. That’s Paul Wicheloe in the foreground.  He’s […]

I've Been in Massachusetts!

Hi everyone! It’s been a little while since I’ve blogged, but I have a good excuse, I swear!  I’ve been up at my orchard in Western Massachusetts, enjoying the countryside living, away from the world of all computers all the time.   One of the things I’ve been lucky enough to do is go to […]

Joyful Revolution

The other night I had the pleasure of attending a benefit concert for my good friend Mariska Hargitay’s Joyful Heart Foundation.  It’s an incredible organization dedicated to helping survivors of sexual assault and domestic abuse.  Check out their website at www.joyfulheartfoundation.org/ The show was excellent.  Here’s Sheryl Crow playing:

Back in School with Prentiss

I was lucky enough to make another visit to Prentiss’ class.  This time we had birthday cupcakes and then I read a book to the class. We used crushed cookies and gummy worms to make the dirt on our cupcakes. Then we added mint leaves and lollipop balloons. Birthday cupcakes still taste good when you’re […]

Prentiss' Horse Show

It was a busy week for Prentiss: losing a tooth, turning five, and a horse show! Here she is suiting up with her father…. All the poise and composure of five years! Everyone was a winner, and Prentiss chose the yellow ribbon.  Here she is showing it off.
