Goodstuff Eatery
September 15, 2009
After I'd been living on Capitol Hill a while, I noticed this fun looking new restaurant, Goodstuff Eatery, and was amused by the name....and then I read about it in all the local papers-- it is run by a local celeb chef, Spike Mendelsohn [famous from Top Chef, one of my fave reality shows], and ...

Patisserie Poupon
September 3, 2009
Having lived in Paris for 7 years, I got used to having croissants for breakfast-- weekends only, really, as who can eat them every day without gaining a ton of weight?  Anyway, that was one of the big things our family missed when we moved to DC -- especially my 4-year-old!  So I was thrilled ...

BABY
Giggle
July 8, 2009
I'd read about trendy kid's shop Giggle a few times (most notably in Cookie magazine), and finally had the chance to check it out this week.  I have to say, it lives up to its expectations of being a well-edited, fun, bright kid's shop.  The boutique stocks all the trendy brands, with a slant towards ...

My name is...
June 5, 2009
When we moved back to the US, one of the most important things for our 3½-year-old was her new room -- what would it look like?  In order to keep some consistency (the poor thing had to deal with an international move AND a new baby sister at the same time), I made sure to ...

Feel the cakelove
May 29, 2009
Have you noticed how cupcakes are the trendy dessert of the moment? Bakeries are popping up all over the US and abroad, it seems.  I first heard about DC-based Cakelove from a cooking show on tv, and was intrigued by the lawyer-turned-chef Warren Brown– someone who was truly following their bliss to open a bakery.  ...

Eastern Market
May 17, 2009
The Eastern Market, in DC's Southeast quadrant, has always been one of my favorite weekend stops, long before I lived in the neighborhood.  The market itself is DC's oldest food market, dating to 1873, housed in an old brick hall. (The hall suffered from a big fire a few years back, and the market is ...

BABY
Consigning for a cause
May 11, 2009
I adore shopping for my kids—and now that I have two girls, I feel a little less guilty about buying for my older one, knowing that later on the baby might wear it again.   But at some point, you have to start getting rid of stuff!  I know my girls have things that they have ...

Spring has sprung
April 21, 2009
Spring has finally sprung here in DC, and although it is still a bit chilly, buds and blooms are popping up everywhere.  To celebrate, we were invited to a First Day of Spring party last month.  My daughter insisted on taking a gift (although I explained it wasn’t a birthday party!) to the hostess, and ...
