Kick start your day with a good breakfast

Early Bird Score

on December 24, 2013

It’s worth getting up early in the morning in NYC. You never know what you’ll find on the street. Something upholstered? Leave it! But almost anything else is worth looking over.

This morning, as I walked Grace at 6:45 before the sun had risen, I spotted a white wicker magazine holder in very good shape. I walked past and then scurried back. “Perfect!” I thought, “it’ll fit right into the corner of the kitchen.” The cookbook situation had become dire. No more room on the shelf for our best-loved, most-used, and now new cookbooks salvaged from my office move.


So our favorite Cook’s Illustrated magazines, Patricia Wells’ new French Kitchen Cookbook, a beauty from Interlink called The German Kitchen by a Hamburg chef, Julia Merriman’s hostess gift of a mouthwatering Belgian cookbook, and more can wait their turn in comfort. And our wedding china, the Liberty pattern from Lenox, nestled on the shelves above the originals, can rest a little easier.

The score and my little partner in crime.
