Kumquat Buttermilk Panna Cotta
If we've hung out together before, you then know that there is not a dessert I do not like. Crunchy, melty, elaborate, simple, fruity, chocolate,...I like desserts.

Jerusalem Artichoke & Parsnip Soup With White Bean, Dill and Smoked Tartines.
Nothing makes me happier than being behind the camera, working with my food and prop stylist, nourishing that passion for food and photography that brought us together. Heck, we do it all week long. With the same gusto, fun, dash of sass and sprinkle of emotion and splash of pride. We know we have
Pear Walnut Cake, A Family Tradition
There are very few things that a cake won't cure. From gray days and heavy rain to sickness and nostalgia. This winter has been brutal for a lot of folks. Here we have been spared from the general malaise of being stuck in a never ending cycle of snow days, blizzards and freezing temperatures. We

Littleneck Clams With Chorizo & Spicy Tomato Gazpacho
It's clear that in the South the weather has no idea how to behave or what to dress for right now. It's ok. I can make pretend for a couple days that this is a prolonged Indian summer just as well as being able to put on a turtleneck or a scarf. I'm always in love with this time of the year ...
