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.
This week's lunch was a kitchen sink creation. I had smoked salmon and needed to figure out what else I could pair with it. I thought a watermelon radish would be fun, and I also had a few scraps of tarragon -- salmon likes tarragon even when the herb is looking a little forlorn. And cream cheese, as I've mentioned before, is the great school lunch unifier. All I needed to do was arrange this motley grouping on some sandwich bread and add in a tangerine and chocolate macaroon for company.

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.
