New Contest on Dash!

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

I’m in desperate need of new grilling tips and recipes, in the hopes of inspiring my lazy ass husband to do more cooking this summer. As many of you know, grilling is the one culinary act Tom is willing to perform. If I can offer him a few new, simple  ideas, maybe he’ll be willing to try his hand at something other than burgers and dogs.

So please send me your thoughts–what and how do you like to grill? The person who sends the best, Tom-friendly tip or recipe wins a signed copy of The Crabby Cook Cookbook, as well as a Crabby Cook apron and a stunning happy face spatula!

Get More Crabby!

Monday, May 2nd, 2011

Big news last week! I mean, besides that business with the wedding (my favorite thing: Posh’s hat) and that stuff with the birth certificate (which I will not dignify with a discussion of DT’s combover), but I’m talking about a development in the soon-to-be-expanding crabby universe… (No, I’m not pregnant! But Posh is.) Read More

Guest Chef Night

Saturday, April 9th, 2011

My friend Lynn is a genius.

Lynn is a fabulous cook, who often (if not always) enjoys cooking. But she (like the crabbier cooks among us) has a family that can be annoying to feed. She told me that, during one especially gnarly phase, her son was a vegan, her older daughter was a pescatarian and her toddler would eat nothing but white toast. Lynn herself is fond of lamb chops, so her dinner hour was often a three-ring circus. Read More


Eastover Contest! (Or is it Passter?)

Friday, April 1st, 2011

Win an autographed cookbook and a Crabby Cook apron!

My mother-in-law, Bette, is coming to stay with us Easter weekend. I know, yikes, right?

But while mothers-in-law in general are often the subject of hostile jokes due to their meddlesome and controlling natures, mine happens to be an excellent representative of the species. She is very smart and kind, and, unlike her daughter-in-law, she is seldom crabby.

Bette’s Jewish, but she likes to celebrate everything. Although Passover was the dominant spring holiday in my husband’s childhood, the Easter bunny showed up annually, too. My mother-in-law’s positive outlook has always led her to rejoice in all of life’s notable moments, regardless of any religion associated with them.

Easter and Passover overlap this year, and I plan on making an Easter blunch (which most people call brunch but, when my daughter Nora was three, she made an adjustment to the word, which stuck). I’ll probably make a ham (perfect blunch entrée for a lazy-ass like me) and since Bette will be present, I want to add something to honor Passover, too. We’re going to call April 24th Eastover. (Or maybe Passter. Maybe Nora will decide.)

So, what would you serve? Any thoughts? I need a nice dish that’s Easter-blunchy and a little bit Jewish-ish all at once. Read More

A Twitter Party? Moi?

Sunday, January 16th, 2011

I am SO throwing a Twitter Party!

At first I was dubious about a Twitter Party. It just seemed, so, ya know, virtual. But then I thought about it. You can invite literally everyone in the world, and you don’t have to feed them! You can attend the party in your pajamas with your teeth unbrushed, and you don’t have to iron your napkins! No searching in the garage for the ice bucket or assigning a designated driver for Aunt Lucy! No post-party guacamole stains on the carpet!

This is my kind of event.
