I remember a party at my friend Annette's house, years ago. Some of it, anyway. Not the guests. Or what was served. Or the time of year, or occasion, even. (Barbecue? Birthday? Random Friday?). None of the five W's, actually. But I remember, tack-sharp, this tiniest part: total befuddlement over board books. I remember walking into her youngest daughter's room, and facing a shelf full of board books, and wondering over why on earth the child still owned such things. She was, after all, a whopping four. Well past toddler-hood. And the youngest. And so, not storing them for up-and-coming... Continue reading

We are kindred spirits, on the bacon front. Its beloved, around these parts, but a definite treat, carefully provisioned. And seeing as your the second soul to mention Instagram within a week, Id best be investigating here, one of these days...

You know, Christina, its so funny! The carrots come off, here, as sweet and indulgent, which is weird, when you all them out as healthy! Something about the contrast, plays up their sugary self. Ive not tried any kale raw save the lacinato, because I love it so, and it somehow seems more tender. That said, Ive seen many recipes use other kales -- if you give the Red Russian a go, Id love to hear back! Best, Molly

Amber, I can so imagine that! I adore a flash-cooked kale salad with roasted squash -- I am coming around to the idea of the kale raw, and imagine the pops of pomegranate would be magical. Cant wait to try it! Best, Molly

Soooooo... The whole gung-ho gardening thing? Kind of took a nose dive. Hard to say when. It's been weeks. A month. More? Somewhere in August, for sure, I went wastral. But before! July! I hung in there! There was Maine, and after, I distinctly remember an urgent afternoon of weeding. It caught me seriously by surprise, as I usually hide from the jungle that greets us after summer time away. But this summer, for the first time, I couldn't rest until I got out, got down, and got my nails irredeemably dirty, pulling ne'er-do-wells from around the base of the... Continue reading

Technology :) I am so sorry to hear of the ongoing strike -- so, so tough on parents, teachers and kids!! May everyone find a solution, soon. Best, Molly

Oof, no. Though I must investigate. Right after I get past the printer business... Those are just my old .99 hipstamatic app, still doing its thing. How the heck are you and your lovely trio? I think of you often, hope you are well. xoxo, Molly

Ooooh, Christina, I think youre on to something. We used to name our cars, when I was a kid. Probably, the printer just needs a name. Hector? Bertha? Triumph! Patience!! One of those virtuous Puritan names, perhaps :) Best to you, Molly

By and large, I've got the hang of the black hole that is back-to-school. The idea those first weeks will yield great productivity and clean cupboards? Myth. Busted. The dream that bedtimes will resume and evenings before eleven again be mine? Pfft. Hello parent meetings. And piles of paperwork. And the scooting of homework until the bitter end. Because summer's a hard habit to break. The on-hold-since-April fantasy of a rhythym, re-established? Right after the pet unicorn. First weeks are just code for germ fests, and invariably, someone succumbs, and whole weeks pass with kiddos home, heads hot and hacking,... Continue reading

Do try it! And do let me know -- not just with this salad, but anything! The taste-as-I-go method is my most tried and true :) Best to you! Molly

Mmmm, stromboli! Must investigate that one, stat! And yes, there is something about the hand-chopping that makes the various parts sing, no? Best to you, Ali! xx, Molly

Kate: The fish is built from a mixed set of GlowBones, a fantastic toy series we picked up when Max was little. Alas, I dont see it anywhere, anymore! Anyway, Henrys handiwork :) xx, M
