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.
It's been damn hot in New York, so I've been packing lighter salads for my kids' camp lunches. For instance: this beet salad with sliced cucumber, and a hard-boiled egg topped with leftover green sauce from a dinner party and pickled onions. To keep my kids' lives in balance, a chocolatey chocolate chip cookie was in order.

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.
