Where you can find me…

i taught a class today

A quick THANK YOU to all of you that came to my class at Macy’s this weekend! I hope you enjoyed the food & the photography demo! I can’t wait to do more classes in the future. I’ll be posting the Strawberry Bruschetta this week and here are the links for the Artichoke Basil Bruschetta & the Tuna & White Bean Bruschetta we worked on together!  Thanks again for the support!  It was seriously FUN!

Here’s a little peak at us grilling the crostini…..

Here’s my station! You know what was awesome? Being able to pull items off the shelf at Macy’s for the demo! Need a grill pan? Just go find one on the floor! Want an awesome serving platter? Pick one from the dishware section!  I also found a new love—Martha Stewart’s bar towels. They are AWESOME. I need to stock up on a bunch! They’re super absorbent and really really lovely, fluffy and soft.

Oh! A few more things!

My friend Danielle of  Sometimes Sweet is working on a really cool series- 8 Weeks to a Better Me! I’m so honored that she wanted me to be apart of it!  Yesterday I posted a few tips on Healthy Eating & 3 Essential Rules I follow to keep my weight/health in check. You should check it out! Thanks Danielle!

Speaking of health, I also posted a recipe for my yummy Fruit Dippers over at Modern Kiddo. My mom made this tasty lime yogurt dip when I was a kid and it’s become Cooper’s new favorite thing!

    I’m glad your class was a hit! Thanks for the tip on the towels, too. Why is it so freakin’ hard to find good towels?

    • Tracy

      I wish I knew!!!!! A good towel is one of the best tools in the kitchen, don’t you think?

    you are on your way to your very own cooking show 🙂

  • Leah

    Yayy! I am happy to hear it went well!! Can’t wait for the strawberry bruschetta recipe!!

  • Megan Mahoney

    Thanks for coming in and teaching a great class! And thank you for the delicious tuna and white bean salad- its my lunch today!

  • Kate

    Congrats on the class, it looks like it was a great success. I wish Macy’s kitchen dept. were at my disposal at home!

    Hi Tracy,

    That was a fun class! I am so inspired now to take more pictures of the food we cook (and not just his bbq’d meat and vegetables). I have had a problem figuring out how to control the off colors in my kitchen photos and thankfully that was covered in the presentation! I think I will try your Pizza recipe from scratch and mark that off my list too. Best take away from the class was talking with you after the presentation about how you started out with your blog, how to maintain your photo library and the software you use. I feel empowered now to give it a go. You rock Tracy.
