Thanksgiving 2012
If there’s a correlation to be drawn between a family’s gratitude and the bounty of its dinner table, then the numbers gurus would conclude with high confidence that we’re a very thankful bunch this year.  Lil’ Man was particularly thankful for the Radio Flyer Little Red Roadster that...

Roller-Skating
Lil’ Man here. Today I found out that you can strap wheels to your feet. It is called roller-skating. I have a couple thoughts. First, this is friggin’ awesome! Second, I have to wonder what other awesome stuff mom and dad are holding out on. I mean, I’ve been around for almost two years and... 
Tapia Bros Pumpkin Patch
Lil’ Man here. Today we went to the Pumpkin Patch at the Tapia Bros farm stand. Dad and I go here quite a bit to visit the animals and pick up some veggies. But (whoa!) do they have some stuff going on for Halloween! There were more animals than usual. A bouncey, which my readers know I dig. And, for some... 

Bouncey!

Bouncey!
The Lil’ Man celebrated Sukkot with a few runs around trampoline (or, as he calls it, “bouncey”). Your browser does not support the video tag  Read More →
Lil' Man Turns Toddler
Lil’ Man here. I’m learning new words everyday and, whether I understand stuff or not, I’ve acquired a pretty good knack for repeating things.  Case in point: I’m not sure what the words “cloying” or “sappy” mean, but I’m pretty  I’m using them anyway... 
Trappist Beer-Braised

It is usually accompanied by french fries or boiled potatoes, however,...

Chilled Corn Soup with Smoked Trout and Serrano Chili Oil
Never underestimate the importance of plating. This, for instance, is an elegant dish once fully assembled, but in its parts it can be very drab. The soup, in particular, looks unfortunately like watered down milk. If our readers are a bit put off, you’ll understand our friend Adam’s reaction when,...

KI2
Week’s end, summer’s end, time for one last Shabbat at the beach. The first one being such a success, Marlo invited us for another (and she brought a bunch of box wine too, which paired nicely with our  fried chicken!). Our youngest team member is not yet ready for the inter-web, so we had to make... 
Buttermilk Curry Fried Chicken
Laura said that if I made fried chicken she would not eat it.  But here is the thing: When it comes to summer, fried chicken is about the only food that can compete with the grill.  Furthermore, after our last beach picnic, which Laura is quick to point out was a bit sandy, hand-to-mouth food is a plus.  But,...
