Print Friendly

A week ago today I had the ultimate privilege of having one of Kansas City’s most talented photographers over for a day of food styling, food photography, and, well – food eating.

Alright, people. If it’s going to be this hot, we have to do something about it. We have to buck up. We have to hold our head high. We have to take charge. We have to stick it to the weatherman! And by this I mean, fill up your kiddie pool, put on your lei […]

Homemade Salsa

Salsa: it’s one of summer’s most quintessential snacks. We all love it. We all need it. We all inhale roughly 140 pounds of it during these warm, ripe months. But, are you used to only eating it out of jars or small tubs? Are you on the verge of an emotion breakdown over the limp […]

Three Women and a Trader Joe’s

Print Friendly

I’d never been in a Trader Joe’s. I’d never even seen one. I’ve heard people gush over it for years and years, and I’d stand there, yawning and scratching my arm pits, as I couldn’t relate to the majesty and glory of this so-called utopia of a grocery store. It was about a year ago […]
