Once upon a time, I wanted to be a cookbook author, food photographer, and chef.
Fast forward to now . . . I take great pictures of food capturing the layers of local flavors and the essence of the season.
I joyfully cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day--that doesn't make me a chef but makes my family very happy.
Cookbooks . . . I've given up on the idea that most people want to actually cook vs. look at pictures of food. If someone asks, I gladly explain the inspiration behind a dish.
Today I'm cooking potato soup with onions and celery. Salt and Pepper. Insanely simple and soulful. One of my favorite creations that takes on a life of its own.
