buzz worthy

This one might qualify me for the parenting hall of shame: A few years ago I made a batch of brownies that called for three tablespoons of instant coffee granules. This, by the way, is enough to make about nine cups of coffee. Somehow, in the hours between when I made the brownies and when I offered a giant one to my 3-year-old daughter, I forgot about the coffee part and inadvertently gave her a caffeine high right before bedtime. She danced like a lunatic for an hour until the buzz wore off. She’s 6 now, and I’m not sure this is related to the brownie incident, but she loves an iced latte more than anyone I know. She has never even tried a real one—only an occasional taste of…

MELISSA D’ARABIAN IS TURNING 50!Best gift ever“My Honda minivan! I’ve bought the same model—a used Odyssey—several times. One year my husband, Philippe, surprised me with a brand-new car. It smelled divine, but I never loved it like my trusty Odyssey—and Philippe could tell. So the best gift was actually an un-gift: He sold the new car and got me a used Odyssey.”Favorite birthday cake“Is it weird to say carrot cake?It’s my favorite of all time.”Best birthday party ever“Last year we had a low-key dinner party at our home. Philippe hired paella makers, and my daughter Charlotte made dozens of cupcakes. It was perfect.”Favorite way to celebrate“Birthdays in our house mean breakfast in bed. I love seeing the people I care about most right when I wake up.”Does your astrological sign…

A Little SomethingFun-size candy is celebrating a big anniversary: Fifty years ago, Mars first printed the phrase on its downsized Snickers bars. The company soon expanded the line to include Milky Way, 3 Musketeers, Mars bar and M&M’s. Of course, competing candymakers wanted in on the fun, too: Curtiss Candy Company added the phrase to small Baby Ruth and Butterfinger bars in 1971 and, despite a lawsuit, others followed. The candies have been a trick-or-treating mainstay ever since, although kids might argue that fun-size bars aren’t technically as fun as normal candy bars: They’re only about 30 percent the size! ■…
