Every week we take a peek inside the lunches of the luckiest kids in Brooklyn. Read on, suppress your jealousy, and get a little brown bag inspiration.
We all have bad weeks. This has been one for me. I stayed up late working on Saturday, we had friends over for dinner on Sunday and Monday, and I had an event (with David Lebovitz for his new book, My Paris Kitchen!) on Tuesday. This meant there was no time for thinking ahead and preparing for lunches. Instead, I had to depend on the staples in my fridge -- if you keep some basics like cheese, cured meats and a crudité or two, you can always throw together a quasi antipasti lunch and feel like you haven't failed your kids!

Before starting Food52 with Merrill, I was a food writer and editor at the New York Times. I've written several books, including "Cooking for Mr. Latte" and "The Essential New York Times Cookbook." I played myself in "Julie & Julia" -- hope you didn't blink, or you may have missed the scene! I live in Brooklyn with my husband, Tad, and twins, Walker and Addison.
