It’s been a while since I did a snapshot post, probably because I worry that those of you who follow me on instagram are already sick and tired of me bragging about my adventures in pilaf and pork fat. But I attended a particularly awesome event last week that was all about amazing women, the power of connection, and the ability of great food to fuel both under one roof.
The dinner was thrown by ElevateGenY and 3WCircle—two new women’s organizations that are trying to motivate and inspire 20 and 30-somethings to pursue their passions. I’m a sucker for women.… Continue Reading

The trip was filmed. There was $100,000 at stake. It involved 8 British chefs and 7 other Americans. We started on the Santa Monica pier with no money in our pockets, and just our knives and cooking/hustling skills to get us from city to city, and to trade for food and shelter.… Continue Reading
Kick your feet up on my coffee table, grab a pint of ice cream and a spoon, and stay a while.
This is where I’ll share my kitchen confessions, semi-healthy recipes, snap shots of my professional cooking world, wacky party ideas, and all the ways I get by with a little help from my friends.
There will be a hint of this and a dollop of that. Sometimes things will get saucy, but I’ll try to avoid TMI, keep it PC/PG, and abbreviate whenev possible.
Oh, and check out my jars!… Continue Reading
