It’s no secret that I love Toast- so much so that I wrote a book about it!

One of my favorite things about hosting is the¬†ability to cook for anyone, regardless of their dietary restrictions and needs.

the darling x aerie retreat: some recipes!

hi friends! Hope your week has been amazing so far. A few weeks back, I got to partner up with two AMAZING brands, Darling Magazine and Aerie and had the opportunity to host and cook for their retreat! We invited 20 women, and together spent a weekend in the Hamptons having some quality intentional rest time.

These peppers are a highly addictive picky bit to start off any meal.
