It’s been really rough trying to balance working from home with being sole caretaker of our increasingly active baby while hubster works 12-15 hour days six days per week but every time he gives me his single-tooth grin or tugs on my leg to play, I know it’s worth it. I am toying with the idea of doing a post updating the reality of us being a chef family but that will be an epic undertaking. In the meantime, I am still trying to make it through from day to day. Can I get a witness new moms or working moms? In spite of it, I would not have it any other way.
As of this month, I will be contributing monthly to Gourmet magazine, developing menus and recipes, making the dishes, doing the food styling and photography – a veritable one woman food media production. It has been a tremendously uplifting experience working with the team. Remember when we were first featured in Gourmet some time ago? I look forward to sharing more of my work there.

Hats off for my portrait by my late photographer friend, Saleem Almas. I believe this photo captures my spirit.
