Photo Credit: Alex Welsh for The New York Times When I was in college and people would ask me what my dream job would be, I’d always say “Anthony Bourdain’s.” This morning, my heart is absolutely broken at the news of his passing.I devoured his books and watched him with awe on TV, marveling at the stories, his passion, his humor, and his unrelenting insight. I love that he appeared just as comfortable wearing a tuxedo at the world’s fanciest restaurants as he was on a family farm in the mountains of Central Asia, witnessing a sheep slaughter.I loved watching . . .
Hello, my friends! I am so, so incredibly excited to announce my newest project, TNB Prop Shop! That's right - I've launched my very own little vintage e-store. Those of you who've been following me for a while or who've taken my food photography class, may have noticed my passion for vintage tabletop props. Unlike brand new items from big name stores, vintage pieces have a story to tell. I love giving them a new life and am so psyched to take this hobby of mine to the next level.It all began one Sunday morning as I was strolling through the flea market on my . . .

“Life has a bigger imagination than we do” - a true statement and the central theme of my life since the beginning of this year. Below is some news that I’ve been dying to share with the world - news that I still can’t quite believe is real!It all started with an email (isn’t this how every great story goes these days?) with “Looking for a writer” in the subject line. Said email was from an editor at HarperCollins (!), and editor who’s a fan of my blog (!!), and is looking for a writer for a Thanksgiving cookbook for this fall - a writer like me (!!!). No . . .
Here we are again - time to update you on what’s been happening in my life lately.It was almost exactly a year ago that I told you about Rene moving away to pursue his Master’s degree. Since then, life has been kind of a whirlwind. Being in a long distance relationship with someone you’ve lived with for two years is no easy feat. Scratch that - for the first few months, it was damn near impossible. There I was, living with a roommate for the first time in my life, suddenly going to bed and waking up alone, and not being able to text bae “What do you wanna do for . . .
Goooood morning, world! While many of you are undoubtedly still in bed basking in the glow of today's federal holiday, I have been hard at work for several hours working on the download of my very first e-cookbook! (There is no rest for the self-employed).I am so freakin' excited to share this e-book with you. This is a project I've been working on for several months and I must say, I'm pretty thrilled with the result. The idea for the book came from my desire to share the tips, tricks and recipes I've picked up over the years on the topic of - you guessed it - . . .
Yesterday evening I returned from one of the most awesome weekends of my life. After several months of planning, our first event as Salt + Sage Collective - a weekend retreat in the Catskills - finally happened! We're so thankful to have gathered an awesome group of women to join us at Foxfire. Among them were fellow bloggers, aspiring cookbook authors, recipe developers, a pastry chef, a food stylist, and a even naturopathic doctor. We were also so excited to host two guest speakers, cookbook authors Leah Vanderveldt and Sarah Copeland.We spent the weekend . . .
