Bagels- one of the world’s ultimate comfort foods!!! Like much of the world, we are practicing “social distancing” and staying indoors. So, we are getting a bit bored. To channel some of the pent up energy, I decided to take the kids on a walk down my memory lane . . . back to when I was a bagel baker. (prefer some boat talk? try this.)Continue reading “Quarantine Bagels”
Living in northern California means the kids get a “ski-week” off from school in February. As recent transplants from Georgia, we learned that ski-week is a mixed bag of fun, whining, fear, pain, over-priced lodging, and bruises, all compressed into tight-fitting boots and ski clothes.Continue reading “A Skiing Interlude”

Since 1995 I have been passing around a memo to friends about NY Food. It all started as a young lawyer in Atlanta after the fourth request for assistance from my new colleagues. Apparently, I was the only NYer they knew (other than John Gotti- who they were all afraid they might meet on the subway -as if he rode the subway). So, to save time in future interactions with my new found southern friends, I dictated a memo (a lost art by the way) and gave it to the very same word processor who was the fourth person to ask for help. Since then, the memo has been edited a bit every five to ten years. The very nature of the recommendations is that they should not require much updating because the places I recommend withstood the test of time -until a couple of them closed.Continue reading “New York Food”
I thought moving the blog, which is tiny and rudimentary, would be simple. I thought I was relatively intelligent. I thought I was somewhat computer competent. None of those things was true.Continue reading “The New Blog Is Here. The New Blog Is Here.”

In June we had the great opportunity to spend a week in the British and U.S. Virgin Islands. Five of those days were on a boat. Not just any boat. A super luxurious, super cool catamaran! We spent a week on a Privilege Catamaran.Continue reading “A Week Of Privilege (literally and figuratively)”
