The Insatiable Lens: Premiere Issue

The Insatiable Lens: Premiere Issue

While I realize that I haven’t been doing much food blogging lately, I wanted to update my readers on a little project that I have been working on for the second half of 2014: my very own food photography magazine called The Insatiable Lens. This project started out as a holiday promotion piece which morphed […]

Grilled Peach and Corn Salsa Recipe

I like to use the Reminders app by Apple, which conveniently syncs between my iPhone, my computer and my iPad. It’s very handy. I have fourteen individual lists of reminders, each one packed full of stuff to do. There is even this great function where you can set a reminder to repeat at a specific […]

I’m pleased to announce that I am going to be a presenter at the second annual St. Louis Food Media Forum August 9 -11, 2013 at The Culinary Institute of St. Louis. The Food Media Forum is a super fun event that covers all aspects of food media including food writing, recipe adaptation, food blog […]

Dried Apricot and Almond Rice Salad

Dried Apricot and Almond Rice Salad

As a food photographer, I often end up with leftover ingredients from shoots and sometimes it’s hard to figure out what to do with them. In cases like this I usually turn to my electronic copy of How To Cook Everything by Mark Bittman (which is available at the app store). I use this app […]

Anything Goes Mashed Potatoes

Anything Goes Mashed Potatoes

Things have been pretty busy around the studio lately, and I’ve been eating more than my share of frozen burritos simply because I haven’t had the time to cook anything decent. Well, to be honest, it’s more about not having the time to go buy ingredients, so I end up eating whatever I have on […]

Quinoa Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

Quinoa Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

I know, I know, another cookie recipe. But this one isn’t as much a cookie recipe as it is a power-bar-health-nut kinda recipe. Sure it has two kinds of sugar … ok, three kinds if you count the honey, but the rest of the ingredients are pretty healthy. Or so I’m led to believe reading […]

Coconut Oatmeal Lace Cookies

Coconut Oatmeal Lace Cookies

I’ve had the ingredients for these cookies lying around for some time now because after reading the original recipe I had the full intention of getting on my inner Jackson Pollock. What do you think? I’m thinking they look pretty damn good. Call up my agent, I see a cookie gallery show in SoHo in […]

Winter Squash Soup with Gruyere Croutons

Winter Squash Soup with Gruyere Croutons

Each year, my pal Kelly over at BarbaricGulp has an anti-Valentine’s day party. The idea is to bring something that would never show up at a romantic dinner – the more garlicky, spicey, date-ending the better. I always have trouble picking out dishes that are appropriately themed the bring, so this year I decided I […]

Shrimp Spring Rolls

Shrimp Spring Rolls

When I’m busy, I rarely get the time to cook as much as I would like (as you can tell by the sparse posts as of late). This is in part because I rarely get out the shops to buy food. I end up eating a weird conglomerate of leftover ingredients from shoots and whatever […]

Coffee Bourbon Chocolate Chunk Pecan Blondies

Coffee Bourbon Chocolate Chunk Pecan Blondies

So you’re supposed to bring dessert to a dinner on Wednesday, so you whip up a really tasty apple and maple syrup bread pudding using leftover potato rolls from Thanksgiving a day early just so you’re ready. Except that it turns out it was Monday when you made the bread pudding instead of Tuesday because […]
