Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate

I don’t know about where you all are, but it’s really hot here. And despite having central A/C on 24/7, my beloved morning cup(s) of coffee are way too hot to handle right now. For the past few years I’ve been brewing coffee in our french press at night to have over ice in the [...]

Creamy & Cheesy Macaroni & Cheese

I am the biggest fan of really good macaroni and cheese. When we were little, my mom would make it for our sitter to give us on nights when she had school committee meetings and would be gone all night. I loved mac & cheese night. As any good mac & cheese fan, I’ve hunted [...]

Favorite Parenting-Related Books

I’ve read a lot of parenting-related books over the past three years both during my pregnancy and after Little M’s arrival. I’ve loved some, hated a couple and found many just eeuh. The single most helpful advice I received about reading parenting books is to read the breastfeeding/sleeping/child rearing books when you’re pregnant and not [...]
