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.
While I confess that many of my lunches have a grown-up air, I do like to play around now and then. Today's lunch was all about pinks and reds and circles. I topped mayo-slathered multigrain with sliced salumi and radishes, and a few strips of roasted peppers (peppers are miraculously and happily still in the market in New York City!). For dessert, I packed some Quin Dream Come Chews and Bergamot Caramels. I'm not much of a candy eater but I've fallen in love with Quin's candies -- which are as vibrant and fresh tasting as they are sweet-tooth satisfying. My kids may trade their sandwich in the lunchroom, but I know they're not trading the candy.

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.
