Road Trip Board Book

Though we plan to travel a lot with Yitzchak, we see the road trip we recently took as special. It was his “paternity leave trip,” the trip we were able to take longer because of paternity leave. Since he will not remember the trip we thought it would be nice to create a board book […]

Cross-Country Road Trip Itinerary: Week 1

Planning a cross-country road trip can be really daunting. I know when I first sat down at my computer staring at Google Maps with a handful of sites I wanted to see on the other side of the country it was hard to get started. I thought it could be useful to share our itinerary […]

Apple Butterscotch Mandelbrot

Sourdough Zucchini Bread

In my quest to put sourdough in everything I decided to try sourdough zucchini bread. It is zucchini season and I consider zucchini bread by far the best use of zucchinis (especially if there are chocolate chips in it). The recipe really isn’t so different than regular zucchini bread.
