Working on My Food Styling

I have been putting together the newsletter for Alchemy of the Hearth with the executive chef, Arleen. It is coming together so well! I really enjoy this kind of thing, and I think I always have. I used to make magazines with my cousin Ashley when I was younger, and then was on the yearbook in HS, and lead the yearbook for three years at my Elem. teaching job.

Anyhow, many of the pictures of food are mine, and it has been one of my goals to become really good at food photography. I have been reading some tips, and took some pics of what I was cooking today. Unfortunately, the stromboli didn't get photographed before we cut into it - it was pretty nice looking!

Metting Martha Stewart





My mom, little 1yr old and I went to Costco to meet Martha Stewart a few weeks ago. The line wrapped and winded around the building, but everyone was in good spirits. We got there around 2 and by 3 she was supposed to start signing. Martha started a little early and the line moved along.

All of a sudden a woman, later I found out she was the book publisher, came up to us and said that Martha wanted all the people with babies to come to the front of the line! I acutally didn't really want to drag the baby there in the first place, but boy did it ever work out. We were brought to the front of the line, around the back of Martha.



She was giving an interview with a local magazine while we were standing there. Honestly, it was the first time I was really sorta speechless and flustered a bit by a celeb. She was really beautiful in person - I can only hope that I can make enough money to buy some creams or something to look like her when I am 68! Wow. Anyways, she signed all our books and was really amazing. I feel so lucky to have met her!
