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.
I didn't sleep well and woke up weary -- not the best state of mind for coming up with a creative lunch. In moments like this, I go for crowd pleasers: cashew butter, ricotta, and honey sandwiches on grainy bread. Apples for dessert (am I just tired or does the top apple look curious and the bottom one shy?). Creativity can wait until I catch up on sleep!

A New Way to Dinner, co-authored by Food52's founders Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs, is an indispensable playbook for stress-free meal-planning (hint: cook foundational dishes on the weekend and mix and match ‘em through the week).
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.
