Beyond the Kitchen

Life Lately:

Two weekends ago I traveled to Toronto for a family wedding which was SO MUCH FUN.  I also left two signed copies of my cookbook at the Indigo in the Yorkdale Mall (and OMG, that mall is epic, you guys)! I purchased the most amazing pull-over hoodie from Roots but had to return it the next day because there was a stain on it when we got to our AirBnB. Such a bummer since it was the last one and on sale! I wish we had Roots in the states!

Beyond the Kitchen: Toronto Wedding June 2017

Wedding vibe! Here’s the dress! It fit true to size.

I got home and packed right up for a blogger retreat in NYC & the Hamptons, which you may have seen all over my social media! It was an amazing weekend filled with inspiring friends/co-workers, and tons of fabulous food! Stay tuned for a recap post and some exclusive recipes from restaurants we ate at!

Last weekend we celebrated Mike’s birthday and had a BBQ at our house with friends. It was so much fun! The Mexican Street Corn Salad was the BIGGEST HIT!

Mike's B-day Spread

I am currently writing to you from New York! I am back this week helping my mom out as she had knee surgery yesterday. Any prayers, good thoughts, and good vibes you could send her way would be so very appreciated! It will be a rough few weeks/months for her. It’s always hard watching your family members go through surgery.
