Departure Date

Friends, one family member, and the rest of you here in Provo.  I am leaving Utah the first of March to move from the Great Salt Lake to the Great Lakes.  Salt Lake just wasn’t big enough for me.  And one lake just wasn’t enough.  I need five.  Maybe I’m a little greedy, but these […]

Day 6: Ginger Roasted Squash Salad Over Quinoa

There are a few things in the world of cooking that, despite all that I try, I just cannot seem to do.  Bake a decent cake, make rice, and apparently make quinoa.  After my second failed attempt to make the quinoa for this dish, I eventually resigned to the mushy grain, added some olive oil […]

Day 4: Spinach Artichoke Pizza

Don’t worry, I know it’s late in the evening, but I was spending the day photographing a wedding and didn’t get to my kitchen and then my computer until just now.  Here’s my proof, that way no one thinks I’m slacking, and plus, I am just excited to start showing off these pictures already.  And, […]

A Week of Spinach [Day 1: Squash and Apple Hash]

It’s the new year and I feel as if resolutions are in the air.  Desires to be a better worker, eat better, exercise more, get to sleep by midnight each night, etc.  I don’t really believe in New Year’s resolutions.  If I’m going to make a goal or change, no point of waiting for January first to start. […]

A Year in Pin-Ups (Happy New Year!)

Today I took down my 2011 Juice ‘n Java calendar, replacing it with the new one (which you can still buy).  I am pretty sure I posted most of these as they were shot, but since then, it’s been over a year and they’re scattered throughout my old blog.  So, I figured what’s a better […]
