  • I'm a big fan of ramps.¬† They are a kind of wild leek with a garlicky aroma and are available for just about a month each year.¬† They are one of the first edible plants to break through the soil in early spring and I'm always excited when they start becoming available¬†at our local farmer's market because it coincides with spring coming into bloom!¬†

    • Ramps and eggs are one my favorite combos.¬† I often just make scrambled¬†eggs with ramps as a quick and delicious meal but this omelet with ramps is a slightly¬†more "refined" variation.

    • I haven't made it yet but this potato, sunchoke and asparagus salad with ramps sounds simple and delicious, and perfect for a spring picnic!¬†¬†

    • I'm also planning on making this ramp pesto and freezing some while they are still readily available!


  • I'm helping organize a family gardening and clean-up morning at our local playground with Z's school.¬† Kids will help pick-up trash and do some weeding and mulching.¬† We thought it would be a fun way to get the kids involved and help take care of their beloved stomping grounds!¬† If you are in NYC,¬†NYC Parks¬†has a number of programs and family-friendly volunteer opportunities.¬† I also recently found¬†out about¬†OneBlock Brooklyn, a community-run group committed to keeping our streets and parks clean.¬† You can¬†sign up to ‚Äúadopt‚ÄĚ a block or park and commit to weekly clean ups.¬† Would love to know whether there are similar initiatives in your local community!


  • While we seem to be nearing some light at the end of the tunnel in the US, India is witnessing a massive surge in cases¬†that¬†is crippling¬†the country. Please consider donating to support relief¬†efforts¬†in India if you are able to.¬†


Wishing you all a restful weekend (especially to all the mamas!),
