Minty Grapefruit Vodka Spritzer Punch
A few weeks ago, I was walking my dog Hudson down a narrow sidewalk next to my apartment building when a man came out a door and started shouting at me. "Get out of my backyard!" he said, like something out of an old Dennis the Menace cartoon. I was, natura...

Fresh Pineapple Salsa
I love a good fruit salsa. That combination of sweet and spicy is absolute magic with salty tortilla (or plantain!) chips. I served this gorgeous Fresh Pineapple Salsa at a party I threw recently, and it was one of the first dishes to go. Best made a few ho...

Elderflower Berry Vodka Punch
I'm not sure what it's like where you live, but in New York City, the 4th of July is usually HOT. The sun shines brightly and summer heat hugs you all heavy and damp. Personally, I love it. I'll take thick, hot summer over icy winter any day of the year. Bu...

Raspberry Rosé Wine Slushies
New York City is on fire right now. At least, that's how everybody is acting. It's about 95 degrees, but feels like 105. It's humid. The sun is blazing. Total madness. But I confess that...I don't hate it! I'm one of those crazy people that loves the sun an...

Corn and Black Bean Salsa Salad
It takes about 5 minutes to pull this ridiculously easy Corn and Black Bean Salsa Salad together, but the final dish is one of those that's surprisingly good. I call it a "salsa salad" because it really is both! You can serve it up with a big bowl of salty ...

Travel Diaries: A Weekend in the Hamptons
As much as I love New York City, I also adore the occasional weekend escape out of the city...especially during the summer! A few weeks ago, Eugene and I dropped Hudson off at my parents' house, packed our bags, and drove a few hours east to Sag Harbor for ...

Watermelon Tomato & Burrata Salad
Sometimes I feel like I'm cheating in the summer. The ingredients are so good that I really don't have to do much apart from cut and assemble. There is a bit of art to figuring out combinations of flavors, but honestly...there isn't that much I can do to ...

Penne with Zucchini and Yogurt Cream Sauce
After a long weekend away, we came back home to an empty fridge and (on my part) not much motivation to cook. Summer weekends tend to do that--a couple days of waking up with the sun on the beach and going from one restaurant or cafe to another zaps me of a...

Rainbow Veggie Dippers
I'm obsessed with summer colors. There are few things more inspiring to me than the rainbow of fruits and vegetables that fill the market shelves and produce stands this time of year. If a vegetable is sold in a color that it's not typically sold in (read: ...
