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.
Everyone has low moments in the kitchen. Like this morning when I went to make smoked salmon and cream cheese sandwiches for our kids, and the salmon was gone. But I wasn't going to let a little salmon get me down. Why not use it as an excuse to give my kids a treat? Cream cheese and jam sandwiches it would be. And salty potato chips (bits, really, because it was the bottom of the bag -- everything had a low tank today!) on the side. Hope I scored some mom points today...

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.
