I’ve been doing a bit of spring cleaning around these parts. First up was the redesign of the site and then, to freshen things up further, I decided to take a few new portrait photos. Bonnie Tsang was my photographer of choice because she does a beautiful job shooting natural, lifestyle, almost editorial shots that I find positively dreamy.
But it really was more organic than any other photo shoot I’ve been on as there was no posing and we had a very loose plan. Basically, Bonnie and I met in Silverlake, spent the day perusing the area (list of shops we stopped in below), and the result is a snapshot of our afternoon chronicled in her gorgeous style. You’ll see plenty of her work on the site and elsewhere as I ready for my fast-approaching cookbook launch, but I thought I’d give you a few sneak peeks in the meantime.

If you follow me on Twitter, then you already know that I spent last weekend engrossed in the amazingness that was the first-ever Craftcation: Indie Business & DIY Conference.
Delilah Snell (who was November’s TasteMaker), and her cousin, Nicole Stevenson – aka two of the busiest bees I know — somehow found times in their ridiculously packed schedules to create this much-needed conference. I say much-needed because it’s clear more and more people are getting into the handcrafted world (including food in there too, of course) and that we can all benefit from converging, conferring, and, collaborating.
Here are 25 rather random observations and takeaways:

I write regularly to share my experiences, adventures, and new recipes, but I don’t often talk to you about this site.
So, let me fill you in: this site began out of pure necessity. I was in need of a place for people to contact me as I stepped out from behind the scenes at CHOW to in front of the camera at Food Network.
I’m a rather private person so I never thought I’d share much more than my contact deets. But then I started traveling far and wide for foodCrafters I wanted to share my adventures and connect with people in a way that wasn’t edited by a TV production company, magazine editor, or anyone else. Not that I don’t adore all the great editors I’ve worked with, but I wanted to be able to speak sans filters.
