Life Lately…

Hi everyone! There are so many exciting things happening that I want to tell you about. First and foremost, I’m so happy to tell you that I’m going to be the new Food Editor at The Everygirl! It’s a part-time position that works perfectly around my full-time job at Weber. If you haven’t been following this lifestyle website, you should be. It’s a great source of information for career-driven women and I am so thrilled to be part of the team. My first article, 5 Culinary School Secrets Every Home Cook Needs to Know, ran last week and we’re working on lots more story ideas. Check it out, comment, share it on social, tell your friends! Shameless self-promtion. 🙂 Things at Weber are crazy busy right now. But in the best possible way, of course! I’m working with the supremely talented, James Beard nominated, NY Times best-selling cookbook author, Jamie Purviance on a new cookbook for Weber. Jamie has written a slew of mouth-watering recipes that I have been testing and editing. We work really hard to make sure our recipes are not only incredibly delicious but also easy to follow, clearly written and foolproof. They are tested and retested multiple times so that by the time the book goes to print we know, without a doubt, that these recipes work. Check out my Instagram feed for a behind-the-scenes look at some of the recipes we’re working on. And last but not least…The Krave! I’ve been thinking long and hard about how to make this the most valuable, enjoyable, informative food blog for you, my dear readers. I will continue...

Last week my job once again took me out of the kitchen and on the road – or through the air in this case – to the beautiful Basque region of northern Spain. A few colleagues and I went there to visit with one of our suppliers and we were given the royal treatment. My flight left Chicago at 4:30 PM and we landed 8 hours later in Madrid where it was already 7:00 the next morning. I got to watch the sunrise from 40,000 feet at what would have been midnight in Chicago. So cool! After a 4 hour layover in Madrid, another 1 hour flight to Bilbao and a 1 hour drive to San Sebastian I was beyond exhausted, but with scenery this beautiful I couldn’t possibly go to sleep. Besides it was 4:00 in the afternoon so staying awake was going to be the best way to combat jet lag. Our gracious hosts took us on a walking tour through this beautiful city which included plenty of stops for “pinxtos” along the way. We stopped in several bars where there was a wide array of snacks to choose from.       And I don’t mean a bowl of nuts or chips and dip! Baguettes with smoked salmon, whipped cheese and caviar, anyone? How about anchovies, peppers and shrimp?    The ubiquitous Jamon Iberico? Or my personal favorite…sundried tomatoes, caramelized goat cheese, balsamic vinegar and pistachios? Seriously, it was like I had died and gone to foodie heaven. Jamon Iberico is cured ham made from pigs fattened on barley for the first several weeks. Then they are...
