Healthy One-Pan Meals for Fitness

Healthy One-Pan Meals for Fitness

On the subject of weeknight meals I say: the less clean-up the better. And the cleaner the food, the better (cook at home!) That’s why I’m so into Fitness‘ March food feature which shares great recipes for one-pan meals. I mean, how else do you fit your workout, your work day AND a home-cooked meal […]

New GF Bakery in Charleston, SC

New GF Bakery in Charleston, SC

I had the good fortune of traveling to Charleston last week on a shoot with the lovelies at Garden & Gun Magazine. And, oh, Charleston: always so pretty, friendly and delicious. I love love love eating there. On this brief trip I kept it kind of in the Mike Lata family with super satisfying dinner […]

Stopover: Rockport Harbor, ME

Stopover: Rockport Harbor, ME

I made a little lunch stopover in Rockport Harbor, Maine last week. It was actually a tad out of the way but totally worth the drive: some really talented people I met a couple of years ago at Salt Water Farm’s cooking school have opened a cozy yet airy restaurant on the main street in […]

Homemade Raw Almond Milk

Homemade Raw Almond Milk

I’m currently obsessed with homemade raw almond milk. It’s one of those things that is so worth taking the extra fifteen minutes to make from scratch rather than buying in the store. It’s infinitely more fresh and flavorful and doesn’t contain all the extra stuff that’s added to the commercial brands to stabilize them and […]

I’ve been waiting for MCMC Fragrances to launch a candle line since Anne McClain moved into Dobbin Mews with us back in April of last year. Anne’s scents are so natural and lovely to be around (just like Anne herself) that even those who think they can’t do perfume are quickly converted. Now, perfectly in […]

Omission Beer

Omission Beer

This past September marked my second annual Portland, Oregon eating and meetings trip. And in honor of Celiac Disease Awareness Month (yes, apparently there is such a thing) I’ll share a newfound love, discovered at the ACE Hotel’s Clyde Common.

Cassis Blueberry Honey Sorbetto

Cassis Blueberry Honey Sorbetto

If you happen to follow my Instagram or Twitter feeds you may notice that I’ve been spending a lot of time in local pools and have taken many Van Leeuwen ice cream breaks from the studio. It’s damn hot and I’m using every method possible to keep myself from getting overheated and cranky. I’ve found […]

May I Recommend... lemon verbena ice cream

May I Recommend… lemon verbena ice cream

My friend Matt bought a lemon verbena plant for his terrace because he thought it had pretty leaves. He texted me me a couple of weeks ago: what can you do with lemon verbena? My plant is getting huge. I answered: ice cream! Matt said: really!? (Heck yes!) I love herbal flavored ice creams. So […]

Lactose-Free Pancakes

Lactose-Free Pancakes

One of my favorite food stylists, the charming Simon Andrews, did the nicest thing for me recently. After finishing up a gluten-free cookbook shoot with another photographer, he squirreled away a bit of the leftover GF ingredient booty for me at the studio. I’m excited to play with some new things including the GF Bisquick […]
