My Recipes
Baking in the name of research and testing recipes for cinnamon rolls for a shoot next week. I think this one's the winner.
Recipe
Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Fudge Sandwich Cookies
Todays the DAAAAY!! 12 days. 12 cookies. Kicking it off right with some major overindulgence. If you're already subscribed you got an accidental sneak peek yesterday thanks to my mad (lack of) tech skills. We're back on track though. Sometimes the best things come out of the inventive use of leftovers. In this case, peanut butter fudge making itself all kinds of useful between two super-soft, sea-salted peanut butter cookies. This recipe is up on the blog today in a touchy-feely post on what inspired the upcoming food styling webinar. It has much to do with getting back to the heart of what you set out to do and with recurring dreams. Both the awake and the asleep kind.

Spiced Kabocha Squash And Olive Oil Cake With Olive Oil Glaze And Toasted…
The fastest way to make friends with those around you in a concert line is to pull an entire loaf of gf kabocha squash and olive oil cake out of your snack pack. I think this falls in to the top ten most delicious things I've ever made.
Recipe
Caramelized Apple Danish With Apple Brandy Soaked Cranberries And Olive Oil…
If my dream of owning a bakery someday ever comes true, this will be the first thing on the menu. Caramelized apples, cream cheese, Calvados-soaked cranberries and sweet cardamom dough with olive oil glaze.
Recipe
Brown Butter Cupcake Brownies
A super straightforward guide to gluten-free baking on the blog today. I love all things kitchen but was a pastry cook before food styling so baking is kinda my jam. Most of my recipes are ones found in my favorite cookbooks tweaked to fit a gf preference (like Brown Butter Cupcake Brownies from the @food52 Baking cookbook.) It's way easier than you think to swap out ingredients and make your own flour blends for cheap.

Been trying to think of something witty for this caption cause I've been off Insta for so long and I feel out of sorts and it's just not working. But it's a cake. An entirely gluten and lactose-free Grapefruit & Poppy Seed one. So I suppose I'll just let it speak for itself. Recipe on my little blog (link in the profile.) Happy Monday!
A super simple how-to on roasted vegetables (i.e. what happens to all the extra produce that ends up in my fridge after photo shoots) plus favorite garnishes and flavor pairings for the ten that are most often in my oven. Mostly for you @coreylowgreen7 #roastedtomatoes #foodstyling #onmytable #howtocook
