Degrees in English and the Culinary Arts (and the requisite experience following each) made choosing a career as a food writer a natural one. I am a regular contributor to Edible Portland and culinate.com. My writing has also been featured in Fine Cooking magazine, the Oregonian FoodDay section, Imbibe magazine, on foodell.com, and in several books including The Grand Central Baking Book (Ten Speed Press, 2009) and The Chefs Collaborative Cookbook (The Taunton Press, 2013).
My cookbook on lemons, The Lemon Cookbook: 50 Sweet and Savory Recipes to Brighten Every Meal, came out in April, 2015. In August, 2015, my cookbook Classic Cookies with Modern Twists will be published, just in time for holiday baking and gifting! And I'm hard at work on the project I'm really excited about, The Portland Farmers Market Cookbook, which will be available in March, 2016, when the market celebrates its 25th anniversary!
