What was the one meal your mother made when you were little that you absolutely hated?

Yes! Ham steaks (or minute steaks) with mac and cheese from a box. I despised those dinners. That's probably why I stopped eating red meat at the age of 12.

NYC brunch/lunch spot for a bridal shower in September

Madeleine's on 9th ave and 30th something has a nice indoor garden room in case it rains, but it is very pretty and the food is quite good. Also, La Petite Cafe in Carrol Gardens offers a similar room with lots of garden sculptures, etc.

Wedding Day Lunch in Brooklyn?

I think Chestnut on Smith Street is just wonderful. They never fail to be delicious and the service is wonderful. They have a nice little outdoor garden too. Also, Frankies on Court is quite nice as well.

Niece wants to send something baked to a boy she met at camp....

That's adorable! Most cookies sans chocolate chips should mail well. I would vote for peanut butter for a boy favorite + mini m&ms in there and you should be all set.

Question of the Day: What's your favorite food to grill?

I love grilling fennel in balsamic vinegar and olive oil.

What's your favorite kitchen sound?

the buzzer of a timer when some kind of delicious good is finished baking.

Question of the Day: What's Your Favorite Type of Cake?

Chocolate cake with chocolate icing and Jewish coffee cake are amongst my faves. I'm with french tart--there are too many delicious options. Strawberry shortcake, carrot cake, burned butter....

Inexpensive dinner in NYC's Village. Recommendations?

I like Otto on 5th avenue and 8th street. It has great little plates of italian delights and wonderful pizzas and pastas. is a great tool for reviews.

i love ronnybrook farm's chocolate. they can be found at some nyc farmer's markets as well as through fresh direct.

Question of the Day: Where have you always wanted to eat ...

Babbo (but I am going tonight finally!) and Shake Shack.

Why Milk Delivery Went Away

Ronnybrook's ice cream is also mad delicious!

Finally checked out DiFara last Sunday

I am a big fan of Franny's Pizza on Flatbush Avenue (near 6th ave) in Brooklyn. Have you tried it? If not, I strongly recommend it. They use all fresh and local ingredients.

Question of the Day: What's the farthest distance you've ever traveled for food?

When I was a kid my parents would plan our road trips around a Cracker Barrel location/road map they had picked up years earlier. On some trips we would stop 2, sometimes 3, times in a day. Frightening, I know.
