More About Lia
What's your favorite place to hang out with kids in NYC?
We spend a lot of time in Prospect Park. For sweet treats, we love Four and Twenty Blackbirds, Trois Pommes, One Girl Cookies and Blue Marble.
What do you read when you aren't reading Mommy Poppins?
Food and lifestyle blogs. Some of my favorites include The Wednesday Chef, Orangette, Sweet Fine Day and Little Brown Pen.
What do you want to do when you grow up?
I hope to open a food-related business in Brooklyn some day, but I'm still trying to figure out what and when that will be! While I was pregnant with my second child, I started leading Brooklyn food tours for new parents. Maybe I'll start those up again some day.
