Oreo Smash.

  Last year I took these adorable photos of JoJo stacking Oreos and a bunch of you really liked them- some people even called me to have me recreate them with their kids... (Wow, looking back its crazy how much better my photos have gotten over the past year!) Because of the Jewish Holiday of Purim, I had an abundance of candy and cookies laying about. And of course, I can't sit idly about … [Read more...]

Henry Hargreaves is Hungry.

First there is "No Seconds" a visual representation of death row meals of criminals.  Then there is "Band Riders" flemish style still life portraits of various band rider … [Read more...]

Over the summer, my husband and I were at a restaurant in NJ that was serving Barrel Aged Nigroni. David loves Nigronis and had never had an aged version before.

Well David and the bartender kind of clicked and … [Read more...]

  Its...a...little...dusty...in...here...SNIFF SNIFF. Have you seen this yet? It's an ad for an Chipotle. (It's actually an ad for their app which supposedly promotes sustainable farming.) They are trying to start a dialogue about how we use food in this country and doing it with a very emotionally persuasive film, aren't they?  This week there was this gorgeous Harvest Moon and my … [Read more...]
