When I turned 10 years old my parents threw me a birthday party and one of the games was pin the tail on the donkey. Remember that game? One of my friends spun another around insisting she was right on track to the donkey poster plastered on the door: “There! There! Pin it there!” she screeched.

Ed. note: Growing up, my grandmother would make weeknight dinner meals so much more fun by making shapes out of vegetables. As a kid, her fried rice seemed so much tastier with carrot flowers.

Do you prefer to dine in or go out? There are so many great brunch places in NYC, but sometimes, it’s just nice to have a casual affair at home instead.
Recently, I decided to have some friends over for brunch. It was wonderful – no long waits and we could stay and chat as long as we wanted.
I wasn’t sure what to make so I checked out President’s Picks for inspiration. I can be notoriously indecisive so sometimes I just go to President’s Picks and make decisions for what I want to cook based on what’s on sale for the week.
