Not yet five weeks old and poor little Bruno has a full-blown cold and is snuffling up a storm. #winterbaby #olderbrothergerms Besides saline drops (and basically letting him sleep on me) does anyone have tips for getting through the night?

Finally finished my jar of turmeric purchased at Kalustyan's in my former New York life. Still clearly remember the day I bought it on my lunch break from work. It was sunny and gorgeous out and I stayed too long at Kalustyan's (when does anyone get out of there quickly?) and had to hurry back to the office, rushing through Madison Square Park back to lower Fifth. In fact, some of my earliest NYC memories are from Curry Hill, when I was in grade school and my dad and I would visit NYC and go to a delicious kosher vegetarian Indian restaurant somewhere there on Lexington. (Madras Mahal, maybe?) What would America be without its many Indian communities? In fact, what would America be without its stunning array of diverse and immigrant communities in general? Especially because of where I live now, I see how diversity truly is what makes America great. Resist turning diversity into a bad word. Resist the narrowing of the horizon. Resist the scapegoating. Resist the hatred. Revel in the myriad countries and people represented in every corner of the land. Gloat in it. It's the most special and wonderful thing about America. And you're so SO lucky to have it.

Really digging my husband's cute outfit today! (While he's apparently trying to tell me something very important ๐Ÿ˜‚.)

There's an amazing community auction full of incredible (handmade and other) things over at @_stillwerise to benefit the ACLU going on. Head on over and get to donating! โœŠ๐ŸปโœŠ๐ŸฝโœŠ๐Ÿฟ

I always love seeing what people are making from #ClassicGermanBaking, but nothing tickles me more than seeing who's making strudel! Here @evelyndunham is making Krautstrudel, one of my favorite recipes in the book. ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ

Smitten with these wacky tulips.
