Bridal Shower Cupcakes
"I got the honor of making cupcakes for my cousin's bridal shower. The theme was lavender and green and the decor was natural and for whatever reason I found that rather intimidating. I knew swirls of bright colors or over-sprinkled cupcakes wouldn't fly here, but I had been wanting to do more gum-paste flowers for a while..."
Little Raspberry Thief
World Cup Munchies
Chocolate Pots de Creme
Laughing During Service
"I love food and photographing what goes on within restaurant kitchens and beyond. All the fresh ingredients and artisanal purveyors excite me. For me it's about all the things that go into the meal before it reaches the dining room that fascinate me..."
"Last summer, my family rented a cabin on Lake Salem in Vermont for a week. We rarely have the opportunity to see each other now that we've moved all over the country and have careers and children. We laughed and cooked together, sat by the fire talking about childhood memories. This is a pretty special memory for me."

Hecho en Mexico
"There is nothing like homemade ice cream. Especially first thing in the morning. During a recent trip to Sayulita, Mexico, my son and I created a morning time ritual. He'd walk me to the town square so I could enjoy my latte if I'd then walk him to the local paleta stand for a cone of fresh strawberries and cream. Ice cream for breakfast? Well, what are vacations for?"
Doughnut and Coffee
"My mum arrived last night—all the way from Australia and in much need of a rest after a grueling 24-hour plane flight. Her body clock is all over the place and as we were planning to have dinner tonight, her stomach was telling her it was time for breakfast. I used this as an excuse to cook something I have wanted to try for a long time—Shakshuka..."
Goat Cheesecake with Figs and Honey
"I would love to romanticize this cheesecake with tales of long ago. It could have been first documented as the celebration cake for the Greeks when they conquered Troy or perhaps it could have been the favorite dessert of Aphrodite, the beautiful Greek Goddess of Love. However, they would be stories for a stories sake because sadly, none of it is true..."
"I'm a food blogger from Dallas, TX. Our family is always interested in trying new foods and recreating all the many family favorites as well. My husband, David and I love everything that goes into creating a meal. From shopping together for all the ingredients, to finally getting everything home, then creating our next feast, to finally enjoying the fruits of our labor with family and friends."
