The Hidden Tax on Food

Like for many of you, friends, this year has been one of change, of learning, of excitement, of disappointment and of disbelief. I’ve also learned more this year than I have in any year since graduating from college. This is immensely satisfying, fun, and eye opening,...

Personal Thoughts on Food, Community, My Mother, and My “Mother”

This week marked the International Women’s Day of 2017, an annual date recognizing and celebrating the contributions of women across the world. It is also an opportunity to call attention to the inequalities that women around the globe face every day. I had drafted up...

Crumb: Hygge Mac & Cheese

It’s been a quiet few weeks for Courses & Crumbs but a busy few weeks for me personally as I figure out the next few months of my life are going to entail. Boston is starting to feel like home again and I’m feeling lucky to have seen so many of my family and friends....

Happy Halloween! It’s a beautiful day here in Boston after a mostly gray weekend. We are finally settled into a routine here and it’s been great to see family and friends so much more frequently. I’m also very happy that Greg and I are back on a regular work schedule...

Seventh Crumb: Grown Up Pumpkin Spice

Weirdly enough, Boston is over 70 degrees today, proving that the old New England adage (“if you don’t like the weather, stick around for a few minutes”) is true. Regardless, the colors and flavors of fall are at their peak. Greg and I went hiking up in New Hampshire...

Sixth Crumb: Winter Squash

"When you get your first asparagus, or your first acorn squash, or your first really good tomato of the season, those are the moments that define the cook's year." - Mario Batali I’ve been feeling under the weather this week (too much fun last weekend!) and it’s...

Third Course: It’s National Coffee Day!

I’m feeling particularly thankful this week. Last weekend I got to celebrate with my brother-in-law and his new fiancée as they got engaged. Tuesday I turned 31 and got sweet notes, calls and texts from so many family members and friends. Wednesday I had dinner with...
