The rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated…

Well hello there! Remember me? Probably not. Just call me Caroline, your not so faithful food blogging friend. You know it is bad when your 11 year old niece calls you and asks you-ever so politely- just what you have been doing instead of blogging and oh, by the way, could you get off your […]

All about writing letters and aging well

Okay gang- huge apologies. I have been a “slacker blogger” recently- and for that I am sorry. But, it is summertime and there are just too many other things to do! And, I admit, I have been less chatty here because I have to save every iota of wittiness and humor for my daily letter […]

Lunch Bunch

I have a confession to make.  One of my least favorite “Mommy jobs” is making box lunches for school.  I realize that it is strange for a foodie to admit that she hates making food.  But, in my mind, lunch box fare is different.  It is assembly line-esque food that my children can eat in 20 minutes […]
