Gourmet Glamping

Hints of spring are in the air, people (!!) and I already feel like busting out my crop tops and Birkenstocks! Okay, maybe it’s still a little too early though. I’m a total shivering wimp if it’s anything less than 70° and sunny outside. But anywayyyy, you know what it’s definitely NOT too early for?! Planning your spring glamping menu. Yup! And that’s exactly what my good friend Lauren and I have been working on. We recently brushed off the winter leaves from her sweet little vintage glamper and started brainstorming… with wine of course. Camping with friends doesn’t have to mean eating foil pack hamburger and Fritos over a fire. Although there’s definitely nothing wrong with throwback girl scout campfire food just for the record! But why not elevate the experience a bit, something delicious but still simple. We are starting to get used to this whole adulting thing after all.

Orange Scones

Sarah Terranova Photography, Cucina & Camera

Guys! It’s been a LONG time. I’ve been away for quite some time and for a handful of reasons. I never really meant to take so much time off from blogging, it just sort of happened. There’s this thing called life that throws at lot of stuff at us sometimes. Money probs, bae battles, internal mind games, social media love/hate, ugh. When push comes to shove there are a lot of things that make me put my blog on the back burner. And if I’m being honest, when my confidence is low and/or my wallet is hurting blogging is usually the first thing I set aside. In an attempt to sort myself and life out I’ve neglected this once love of mine. But I never felt over Cucina & Camera, and I never felt like I was giving up on blogging.

A Creative Convergence

ST_071915_CreativeConvergence-014

When Tyler of Made in KC first approached me about being a part of a dinner event he was putting together for Kansas City creatives my first thought was (*%&$^#@!) yea, totally. i’d love to.  He and Jaclyn Joslin of Coveted Home were teaming up to put on a thank you dinner for those makers who filled  the south KC boutique and made opening their doors possible. I was totally stoked (and super nervous!). It was completely flattering to even be considered as a part of KC’s creative community. And even more than that — trusted to feed all 60+ of them!

“Angry Pasta”

A lot of people ask me what my favorite thing to cook is and sometimes my answer is “something I’ve never made before” because I love trying different recipes and just playing in the kitchen in general. It’s fun and it’s never the same thing twice! But when I’m hungry(most of the time) my answer is “pasta!” which is followed by “what kind?” So I start racking through allll the types of pastas and sauces I love to eat and my stomach starts grumbling and my mouth is watering and I just really can’t come up with an honest answer. I like them all. I like making them all and I like eating them all. I could probably eat pasta until I explode. everyday. even for breakfast.
