Our Texas Hill Country Wedding

For me, really feeling like a truly married person has been a gradual process over a year and a half period. Adam and I got engaged in Paris on Sept. 25, 2011, got legally married in Houston in a hastily planned ceremony on Dec. 25, 2011 (Christmas Day), and co-hosted a second wedding ceremony and celebration in Austin on Oct. 6, 2012. Last week, I officially changed my name to Jodi Bart Holzband on my driver’s license, and today I’m finally sharing some of my favorite moments from our Hill …

Jeffrey B: Questions on Your Life in Food

This is the final segment of the very small Bart family edition of the “Your Life in Food” series. Since there are just four of us, I thought it would be interesting to include Adam’s family as well. The Holzband/Oberstein chapters will begin following this post so stay tuned!
Without further ado, last, but certainly not least, my brother, or as some know him, “The Shoe King of New York.”

Best Omlette Ever

Growing up in suburban Maryland, there was a company called Mr. Omlette that you could hire for parties and brunches. That event’s Mr. Omlette would wear a white chefs coat and a tall toque and it was so much fun to pick as many fillings as I wanted.
Back in mid-September I was visiting my family in Maryland for both Rosh Hashanah and my birthday and our friends the Feldmans/Rices invited us over to brunch.
When we arrived we were greeted by this gorgeous spread:

Jared Rice and his girlfriend Leila woke up …

Jeffrey’s Love Letter to the Sandwich

Editor’s Note: This is a guest post from my younger brother. He lives in New York and runs operations for a brand of women’s shoes called Miz Mooz.

I can’t recall a time in my life when I didn’t love a good sandwich. As a toddler I had a fickle palate and to this day my cousin Cary reminds me how I would tote along a freshly made peanut butter sandwich to our local Chinese restaurant. When my family would chow down on Lo Mein and Kung Pao, I would …

Capital with an "A"

My dad and I are inordinately interested in spelling. I was mentioning that I always have to look up the spelling of capitol vs. capital. I don’t think I’ll ever have to look that up again because we came up with the perfect device — The capital city is obviously chosen before the building so it’s spelled with an “A.” The capitol is generally round like an “O” (at least the ones in Austin and D.C. are). Can anyone can help me remember the difference between “affect” and “effect?”
