Be back soon!

leaving for the JOY retreat

Hey! I’m at the Oregon coast right now teaching a few cooking classes at the Joy Retreat this week with Mati Rose & Hula. The next few days of my life will be geared around food, painting, polaroids, and JOY. Let me tell you that I’ve been looking forward to this for MONTHS. This mama SOOO needs her girl time! Things might be quiet ’round these parts, but brace yourselves…there will be LOTS of photos headed your way soon. I’m so excited to get my ART on with 19 other talented women. I’m also really looking forward to sharing my love of food with these ladies & teaching them a few things in the kitchen.

Wanna see what we’re working on in the kitchen this week? Come take a look!

We are going to make a HUGE batch of Hearty Black Bean & Sweet Potato Soup

with a side of grilled tortillas, avocado & hot sauce!

I’m going to introduce the ladies to soyrizo too! I hope they love it.

We’ll be eating this amazing Sour Cream Coffee Cake with coffee & other goodies one morning.

Another day we’ll wake up and have Brussels Sprouts & Potato Hash.

with Brown Butter Biscuits….

with perfectly fried eggs. Don’t worry…a delicious fruit salad will be in there too!

We are going to have a pizza party with my Mom’s Green Salad….IN OUR PAJAMAS!

And we’re going to be diving into these mini icebox cupcakes adapted from this recipe for dessert! I might make a minty batch too!

One night we’ll have a Greek feast! Everyone will build their own shish kebabs…

Paired with a scrumptious Greek Salad….

I’m also going to be teaching a spice lab and a few food photography tricks!

I wish you were coming! I’ll be back soon…with pictures, some cool Polaroids and maybe a nice little painting. See you soon!
