Perfect Pairings

The celebrity of chefs was near peak pre-pandemic and now when we’re all cooking at home and lusting after restaurant quality meals, the celebration of foodies is at an all-time high. How often do we catch ourselves listening to/watching/reaching about our favorite chefs? With front of house closed, professional kitchens are more open to us than ever before and I for one couldn’t be more excited.

Sugar Giant x SKORDO

With SKORDO I'm often creating dishes at home and sharing a recipe virtually. Sugar Giant allows me to share baked goods directly to the community. I really appreciate having SKORDO introduce me to blogging and providing me a space to gain my confidence in myself and the way I speak of my product, whether it be a blend or a pastry. I wholeheartedly believe in both businesses, the people behind them and feel so fortunate to be able to mesh the two. I love the way they naturally align together, both catering to the cravings of the community.

Introducing: Posy Sea Salt + Posy Sugar

Product development is one of our favorite things. Our floral infused sugar and salt were dreamed up nearly a year ago. It’s taken us time to find the right ingredients, strike a balance with the bold flavors and test variants in our kitchens. We couldn’t be prouder of the end results.

Whether you’re rolling out dough with a loved one, mailing some to friends, or leaving some out for Santa; cookies are essential to the holidays! Martha Stewart’s Cookie Perfection has over 100 variations of cookie recipes. My family always makes several dozen Linzer Tarts and Peanut Butter Thumbprints, but this year I decided to spice it up. 
Emily in Italy

Emily in Italy

Wine, gelato, café, and of course food.  These four things are what I often say living in Sicily “spoiled for me”.  From 2010-2012 I had the privilege to live on the Italian island for two years while serving as a U.S. Navy Nurse.  That time remains as some of the best years I’ve experienced, the vast majority of those memories surrounding wonderful company and of course, food.
