Easter Nests

How is it Easter already?? Time is flying by this year. I haven’t even dyed any eggs yet! Hopefully I’ll have some time to squeeze in a fun easter egg sesh before it’s too late. If nothing else though, I simply cannot let this time of year come and go without eating copious amounts of deviled eggs. (hint, hint…mom) Crossing my fingers. ;)

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.

Gatherings Like These & Fig Tagine

Guys, I really like food! And not just because I love eating it (although i really do like that part). But because food has this amazingly powerful way of bringing people together. In our busy lives it is, unfortunately, not something we get to experience all the time but nonetheless it should be something we try to do more often. Nothing fancy or anything. Just a simple gathering over yummy stuff! It’s rewarding and nourishing for our bodies and minds.

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!

Stony Crest Urban Farm Tour

My childhood home sat at the end of a typical suburban neighborhood of Kansas City. On one side was another 80’s built home and to the other side was a farm with horses and milo. At the time this was not an atypical scene. Suburbia was stretching its extremities further south (as it still is today) and we happened to live were suburban and farm life met. Cecil, our next-door-neighborhood farmer, reserved part of his land as a community garden. My parents grew everything from sunflowers to cucumbers. As a kid I spent a fair amount of time watering, picking out weeds, and just playing in the dirt in general. On special occasions I got to ride the tracker and play in the barns. Now that farm, as well as most of the other fields and farms in the area, have been replaced with the Sprint World Headquarters (…), apartment complexes, chain restaurants and shopping, and more apartment complexes. I love my city and am proud to be a home grown Kansas Citian. It’s growth, especially lately, has put KC on the map and brought well deserved recognition to the organizations and people that call this place home.
