Minnesota with Cherries on Top

We spent a long weekend in Minnesota, unpacking (and then repacking) J's entire childhood in two days while his parents prepared for their big move. His mom taught me how to bake his favorite dessert from childhood...but I bet it won't taste the same when I make it (and it shouldn't, really...)

Home Sweet Home

We didn't know what to expect when we moved to Central Harlem two years ago. We bought our apartment because it had space and light, and we imagined that we could sprawl out there, and not need to move on for a while. We were moving from the Upper West Side, and the new neighborhood seemed to reflect our new apartment: there was space and light, and we a feeling that it was a place that we could grow with and into. And as it turns out, that feeling was right.

Perfect Day in Buenos Aires, No. 2

My second perfect day in Buenos Aires (and fully interchangeable with the first perfect day).

I would start the second day in San Telmo, especially if it happens to be a Sunday. On Sundays, the streets of San Telmo become a feria, with magicians, antiques and tango dancers all competing for attention. Stop for a cortado at Bar Dorado, or a big bowl of pasta at Bar Federal. If you have room left over, try a delicious ice cream at Dylan.

In the evening, head to Voulezbar in Palermo for a delicious meal in a lovely setting.
