Yay or Nay? Setting a Kiddie Table at Holiday Dinners
There was always a kiddie table growing up, and graduating to the grown-up table was considered quite a big deal. (And as the youngest in a large extended family, it was a very big deal.) Now that we’re the grown-ups in charge of seating arrangements, what do you think about the kids’ table?As fond as I am of my memories of that first meal at the grown-up table, I find myself questioning the whole idea of a kid’s table at holiday meals. For one thing, does it really work?!

One of my favorite holiday memories of Mexico City was on my first New Year’s Eve, when I ran down a dark street in my patent-leather heels, clutching an empty tote bag. My friend’s grandmother called, “Córrele, córrele!” (Run, run!) In the States I usually spent New Year’s Eve in a bar or at a party, but dashing through a residential neighborhood just after midnight felt thrilling — especially if it truly meant I’d travel more in the new year.

Recipe: Ginger Cinnamon Caramels
We are big fans of the fantastically spicy ginger chews from Ginger People (although… their oddly anthropomorphic ginger mascots? Cute or creepy?) Spicy ginger is comforting and warm, nice for winter colds, and so delicious with hot tea. When making our last batch of caramels we decided to try out our new ginger extract and make ginger candies ourselves. How did they turn out? For pictures and more, read on…We love them.
