This was totally not what I planned to make with Kelly Janke, my food stylist colleague but... I had a really great lunch and as gifted a bomb.com pan and just needed to make these Seared Eggplant Toasts to celebrate spring feeling like summer. Learn how her and I are BFFs, not only with each other but with Meryl Streep.Read More
It's all about "beauty food" with Laney Crowell, founder (and friend!) of The Moment, a beauty site, with an emphasis on feeling and living beautifully from the inside out. Think, natural beauty products, food, mindfulness, etc. We Broil Avocado and chat about the insider world of Kunz spoons.
For someone who gets up at 3 AM, she's sure bubbly! Join my friend and NBC's TODAY Show producer, Carter McKay, and I as we make Lamb Labneh Flatbreads (/set off a NYC apartment smoke alarm) and giggle about what our herbal spirit animal is. Let's just say, I'm 100% with her on "sage" "shopping at Club Monaco."
Ain't no lady friend like this lady friend. Kitchen comrade turned ride-or-die, Elise Reinemann of Becca PR and I chat about how being veg-en is different than vegan while we make my Pan Seared Cauliflower with Avocado Dressing and why sometimes salads make the best date meals.
I've never had an issue about walking up to someone and saying, "Let's be friends." Shelby Albo is a perfect example of this. Fitness & travel expert by day, Shelby and I giggle about how we met (Bari), my tendency towards klutziness and what happens when a bag of frozen peas ends up on your floor. This recipe [Spring Cous Cous] is ideal for anyone looking to not turn on the stove or spend hours in the kitchen = everyone.
Margeau Barnes and her famously delicious Instagram account, Satisfreed, have us drooling for what she calls, "Pizza, pasta, burgers and all the comfort foods." So we're making Montanara Pie, the official (and fried!) pizza of Naples. She also claims to have "resting brunch face," but to be honest, I really can't see it. Cheers to this bubbly millennial teaching me what all the cool kids are doing these days.
