Goat Cheese and Tomato Tart

Poor Roommate. She’d get home from grad school, open the fridge, and see a covered pie plate where there hadn’t been one before. She’d hope against hope that it would be chocolate pie, or key lime pie, or pecan pie, or anything at all except what it was: a tart starring her least favorite fruit- […] Read more…

Sweet Nothing Du Jour 6/27/12

I will most likely wind up spending the night at the office tonight.  Alls I’m sayin’ is: 1.  If the lawyers/clients eat all the fancy food in the conference room and leave none for me, my vengeance will be swift and mighty.  Or at least sullen and sulky. 2.  If the lovely people in the […] Read more…

Fighting

I have a confession to make.  I’ve told you that when I hear women around me talk negatively about their bodies, I speak up and tell them why I think they’re lovely, just as they are.  I do not comment on weight gained or lost by myself or by other people.  I do not cast judgment on […] Read more…

Ali Cudby is the founder and CEO of FabFoundations™, a bra-fitting […] Read more…

Key Lime Pie

I am a giant brat about baking things from a mix or a can or a jar. I get all smug and annoying and sniffy and “I don’t BELIEVE in cake mixes” and am generally charming and wonderful, with my nose in the air declaring that pre-made/pre-packaged ingredients are cheating. That being said, if you […] Read more…

Beating the Heat: All-or-Mostly Cotton Bras

I got a request from a dear friend for an all-or-mostly-cotton shopping guide, and seriously, could the timing be any better?  In four days New York has gone from 65 degrees to 95, and the city is just one giant concrete-and-skyscraper heat-trapping hell-hole.  Sometimes.  Not always.  But I am not alone in wishing that more subway-riders […] Read more…
