My first cookbook is a collection of illustrated recipes that use fresh ingredients in a simple recipe like blueberry & corn pancakes, roasted red pepper, arugula & goat cheese sandwiches, pineapple cilantro salsa and kale pesto.

I’m a cookbook author, journalist and proud mom of two beautiful kids. My kitchen is in Boston and it’s usually filled with fresh ingredients, a bit of a mess and a sweet toddler who loves to cook with momma – Dad and baby leave the meal prep to us. Mealtime with my very curious and very hungry little girl inspired my first collection of recipes – 76 illustrated guides to fresh, simple snacks and meals. Look for it on shelves and online in October!
Before I spent so much time in the kitchen I was a journalist for Reuters. I’ve also written for the Boston Globe, Boston magazine, Boston Business Journal and Eat Boutique.
