Confessions from My Imperfect Kitchen to Yours

Are we friends on Instagram? If we are, you’ve probably seen my colorful breakfasts (well-lit, in pretty wooden bowls). Maybe you’ve noticed my sweet fluffy assistants or my artfully arranged salads.

Can a single question at the right time shift and shake your world as you’ve always known it? Yes. It can. And for me, it did. I still remember the moment as if it were just last night, despite the decade that has passed. I had just sat down to dinner at a NYC hot […]
