Q: I’ve been isolating since March, limiting trips to the grocery store and delivery, cooking almost every day, and I’ve just lost any interest in it. It’s so much work to make food happen — think of what to eat, buy ingredients, re-plan from scratch when three key ingredients are inevitably…

America is sick. Still sick. The fever spikes, abates, returns. The shortness of breath lingers. America is waiting in virtual bread lines, listening to bad jazz, on hold with the unemployment office. America is strewn with the glass shards of Starbucks windows, busted by protesters, and bul…

We know you’ve been there. We all have: staring at the contents of the refrigerator, freezer and pantry, and thinking, “What the heck do I make with all this?” Whether your larder is bare or flush, unless you’re an expert meal planner, you have surely had moments when you’ve been positively …

TAMPA — One day last week, the math became irrefutable. On that day, Suzanne and Roger Perry laid off 175 employees in their small empire of Tampa Bay restaurants. They couldn’t gather everyone together to explain the layoffs — it would have exceeded the governor’s rules about crowd sizes. T…

WASHINGTON — When Amy and Jay Hariani bought their 1895 turreted rowhouse here in 2008, a quick flip job had stripped the house of all its interior Victorian frills — without giving them the bedrooms or closet space they needed for their growing family.

Right now, the United States is contemplating the temporary loss of toilet paper (which has only been on a cardboard roll as we know it since 1890, according to Charmin) and appreciating anew what we had taken for granted. It’s a good moment to count our blessings. Fortuitously timed for tho…

Five years ago, I spent the second week of March undergoing my third round of chemotherapy — the 11th week since a cancer diagnosis changed everything in an instant. My red blood cell counts were so low that I couldn’t walk up the stairs in my house without resting halfway up.

What we practice when life is calm and predictable will present itself when life becomes more turbulent and less predictable. It is that spiritual muscle memory that we should be developing in our lives for when trouble rolls in and decides to stay for a while. The same applies to us physica…

With “Onward,” one streak was going to come to an end. In one corner was Pixar, who after 25 years of making consistently impressive animated films, might finally release a bad one. In the other corner was 2020, which after two months had yet to see the release of a single film I’d recommend…

When I was a girl in the 1980s, my parents took me to visit Orchard House, Louisa May Alcott’s home in Concord, Massachusetts. This trip inspired me as a young writer. Through her autobiographical novel “Little Women,” Alcott showed what it was like to be a professional author with her “geni…

Crispy pizza crust is so satisfying. It’s essential if I’m going to give a pie a gold star, especially if we’re talking about the thick crust style, with the dough battling the toppings for a starring role.

Q: I see pressure cooker recipes claiming things like a “30-minute meal” with a 25-minute cook at high pressure, but my experience is that when my Instant Pot is fairly full, the time to get up to pressure ends up being almost as long as the cooking time. (So that “30-minute meal” is more th…
