The Bride Branches Out

While I love to regale you all with stories, tutorials, and tips about wedding stuff, I was hoping it might be okay with you, dear readers, if I widened the reach of the DIY Bride series into a broader scope of topics – namely, how to deal with this whole new realm of wedded or partnered bliss, or rather, how to get used to this new person in the house that is kind of stinky.

Lunchtime Poll: 3/11

Last night I played a game of Hungry Hungry Hippos with my kids.  As we played, I remembered how badly I wanted this game when I was little.  I was so jealous of my friends who had it for their very own and could play it whenever they wanted.  But, however much I longed for Hungry Hungry Hippos, it was nothing compared to my lust for Lite-Brite.

Kiss Your Arsenal: Juicers

So, I’ve spent a bit of time around here going over the tools and appliances in my kitchen that help me work my culinary magic. I’ve aptly titled this series “Kiss My Arsenal.” But now, it’s time for me to kiss your respective arsenals, dear readers, because I find myself with a new and frightening appliance: a juicer. My mother in law gave it to my husband and me for Christmas.  Although it was a generous gift, I’m not quite sure how to use it. And with my tiny NYC apartment kitchen, I tend to resent any item that isn’t adding a lot to my kitchen. Read More Kiss Your Arsenal: Juicers
