Strawberries! Rhubarb!

I am so excited that strawberries are finally out! Other than my citrus souvenirs, that I brought home from LA in February, it's been a long winter of storage apples and I am so happy to welcome fresh fruit back into my regular diet. Besides just devouring them as is I also had the forethought to get some rhubarb and made a cobbler. So yums. I had actually never made a cobbler or any strawberry rhubarb combination dessert before. Which is a little crazy - I make crumbles all the time - but hey, first time for everything. Must be that sometimes spring comes on pretty quickly and I usually miss the rhubarb before I shake off the winter enough to get with it. But this year spring is coming on slow, so I've had time to plot and plan. I even made an awesome roasted rhubarb compote, great on ice cream and pancakes. Maybe I'll even get it together in time to can some strawberry rhubarb jam.

Day Trip to the Hamptons. For Work!

Working on the beach is not usually as fun as you'd think (it can be a real pain) but last week I had such a great day shooting a cute entertaining story with Alice Gao and the super rad girls over at Refinery29! It was just a perfect day, warm in the sun, slightly breezy, salty air. Nice mid-week escape.

You can see the story here:

Suite One Blues

Ever once in a while I like to pop over to Suite One Studio and see what she's been working on. There are all kinds of bright colors for summer right now but, of course, I love these blues.

Bon Appetit's 'The Grilling Book'

Had a very fun Sunday afternoon a couple weeks ago cooking from The Grilling Book by Bon Appetit with some great company. Nicole Franzen on photos, Camille Becerra on grill duty, spicy grapefruit margaritas, a breezy spring nyc backyard, and a whole lot of grilled yumminess. And all I had to do was set the table. Check out the full feature over on Bon Appetit's blog!
