Friday Show and Tell!

Hello from New York! I’m about to hop on a plane headed back for San Diego after just about 45 hours or so. It was a whirlwind trip but very productive and included a Potbelly sandwich and cookies from Momofuku Milk Bar. Life is good.

Just two quick things to share today! I wrote two posts on Babble this week that I’m kinda proud of. They both involved a lot of research and I learned a lot, so I’m excited to share them with you!

As always, please feel free to share anything you like! Happy Friday!


  1. That sounds like a quick trip, but if chocolate is included, it was probably worth it 🙂

    I barely cooked this week so no new recipes, but I did manage to get a post up on some progress my son is making with his cochlear implants.

      it must be beyond amazing to watch your son start to hear and interact with the world in a new way – I can’t even imagine. I think I would cry all the time if I were you!!!

    Nice articles, thanks for the reading!

    New York = Fun!! But, Boston is still my favorite city to visit. 😉

    I have 2 questions for Friday:

    1) Where do you position your oven rack? In the middle or closer to the bottom? Or, do you move it around depending on what you cook? I’m having baking/timing issues lately (why??) so I thought I would ask a pro. 😉

    2) How do I subscribe to your blog? I thought I had subscribed a little while ago but instead of being notified of new posts, I get notified about new comments to a particular post. Hope that makes sense.

    Thanks for any help! Have a great weekend! 🙂

      boston is really WONDERFUL. I grew up in new jersey and always thought new york was my city, but then I lived in boston. you might be right 😉

      1) I move it around depending on what I cook, but for all-purpose I have it like 1 level down from the middle, so it’s mostly in the middle but a little lower.

      this tip from dorie greenspan might also help you out a bit – pretty cool

      2) click the little green envelope up on the top of the second column where I have twitter, facebook, etc…that should do it!

    Thanks for the replies. Both were very helpful! Glad I’m not alone in my oven confusion (and I position my rack in the same place as you). And Dorie’s blog is a fun one! And, I’m excited to subscribe – now I don’t have to feel like a stalker every time I check your blog for a new post. Haha!

    I know what you mean about NYC. I’m a Broadway Junkie and couldn’t wait to visit there someday. When I finally got to, it did not disappoint and I loved it! But, a couple years later I went to Boston and just felt more “at home” there. It surprised me since I always thought NYC would feel that way for me. Guess not… Oh well, still a great place to have in our country. 🙂
