Lemon Yogurt Cake & An Ode To My New Town...
I have to start this post by going over an email exchange I recently had with a reader. I think it was quite enlightening on both sides from various reasons. He sent me a message asking if there was still spots available in the workshop Tami, Mindi and I are teaching in Birmingham, Alabama in July.

A Two Day Food Photography & Styling Workshop In Birmingham, Alabama, July 27th - 28th 2013
Have you ever wished you had someone explain in an easy way how to tell a visual story through a photograph? How to work with natural light, wherever you are? How to diffuse and bounce, highlight and contrast in the best way possible? Have you ever wondered how on earth you would style that ...
Linguine With Salmon, Asparagus, Cherry Tomatoes. And Lots of Other Good Things!
Buzz. Buzz. Buzz. That pretty much sums up the state of my brain when Friday came around. And fried. The word I'd use if asked how my head felt. The last few weeks have been pretty packed and at the same time completely fulfilling and inspiring . It's always Christmas morning when I head over to ...
Jerusalem Artichoke & Ramps Vegetable Soup And Poached Egg With Potato Hash
Picking back up where I left off... almost a month ago. I never intended to let that much time go by in between my posts but "busy" took a hold of me and would not let go. Most of my April was dedicated to workshop planning every day after work . Menus, photo assignments, logistics, etc... To make

Apple Walnut Cakes With Mascarpone Cream
I don't think I could have enjoyed making these Apple Cinnamon And Walnut Cakes more than this weekend. Rainy and grey weather, still getting over a bad cold and terrible news about someone I loved just made me head out to the kitchen and cook, bake, stir and chop. I also went for a long run and ...
Seared Lamb Chops With Blood Orange Sauce and Roasted Okra With Chili Oil
So, this long distance relationship I am in with my very own husband is working alright by most standards. It's long, afar, with very short weekends here and there but we have, without even saying it outloud, understood that every minute counts. There is no bickering, no wondering, no hint. Just ...
