It's true -- when do they not? But today's lunch is a particularly strong representative of our recipe archives. A staff-favorite soup, followed by a small-batch sweet. Okay, so maybe the butter wasn't homemade, but if you wanted to, we have a recipe for that, too.Read More »
Today's glimpse into the twins' lunch is making us jealous, yet again. Here's Amanda:
Sandwiches made from the best sandwich bread ever created, Balthazar brioche bread, homemade aioli (made the night before for some roasted fish and potatoes), sweet lettuce leaves, and smoked ham. And by the way, yes, my kids complain about their lunches just like every other kid in the world does.
But when a lunch like this is topped off with a chocolate cookie (also from Balthazar), who could find room to complain?Read More »
Amanda fixes a perfectly balanced lunch this week -- one that we might actually be eyeing as a midweek dinner. Twins, if you'd like Frittata Round Two, consider yourselves invited. We'll let Amanda describe the details:
"Leftover frittata threaded with turnip greens, tiny diced potatoes, and onion. Greek yogurt with apple raspberry sauce and concord grape coulis."Read More »
Today's lunch most likely mirrors that of every other American child's lunch this week. We'll let Amanda explain:

It's a lunchbox cocktail party for Walker and Addie this week, with crudités, cheese, and olives all ready for the snacking. Here's Amanda with the specifics:
I believe in the occasional snacky lunch. For this one I packed soppressata, Castelvetrano olives, Red Leicester cheese, ricotta salata, and purple carrots. To go with, whole wheat bread, a British cheese cracker, and roasted pumpkin seeds.
(No Grüner Veltliner for this set, but we wouldn't pass on a glass to accompany this meal!)Read More »
Here's a lunch we'd happily turn to any day of the week: roasted chicken salad with celery, Dijon, mayo, and tarragon (says Amanda, "chicken and tarragon are besties").
The tiny spoons are just right for 6-year-old hands piling salad on the slices of whole grain bread, and chocolate spice cookies make for a perfect dessert.Read More »
