A few months ago, I had the opportunity to develop 6 recipes for the May issue of Delicious Living designed for expecting and new mamas. There are recipes to enjoy throughout the day and each one is totally family-approved, but packed with nutrients that mamas need.
Check out the whole story in the digital issue here.
I wrote a post for The Kitchn with one of my habits related to talking about food and the rush of dietary changes in the air this month. I'm all for eating better and taking positive steps to improve our health, but I do think that it's important to remember that how we talk about those changes can also have a big impact.

I worked on this guide to The Best Slippers for The Sweet Home a while back, but it seems like a perfect time to share it here—it's going to be -10 here tomorrow night! Since I work at home, I wear slippers everyday and consider myself to be a pretty good judge of their merits. Find out more about our top picks in the very extensively researched story here. (The top pick is my current absolute favorite.)
I had the pleasure of writing a few posts on babies and eating for Momtastic recently—which is a topic that is at the forefront of my mind with my 4 month old! Check them out below:
7 Signs of Solid Food Readiness
In the latest issue of Do It Yourself (which has the mostly lovely cover, right?) I have a new decorating story. It was so fun to learn more about the mind behind this creative space and to hear about how she put that stunning herringbone wall together. Check out the whole issue on newsstands now!
In the current issue of Midwest Living, there's a lovely story about a Minneapolis florist and the workshops that they hold in their new studio. I loved getting to chat with Jackie about the event and her flower philosophy—and to see her gorgeous work.
Look for the May/June issue on newsstands (if you're in the Midwest).
I had my first posts go live on The Kitchn this week, which is one of my very favorite food sites, and I loved getting to share a few thoughts about feeding toddlers with a new audience. You can see all of the posts under my author page here, but the topics range from the one thing I've done to relax about my daughter's sugar intake, to why I don't call her picky, and stress-free tips for eating out with little ones.

Pick up the latest copy of Better Homes and Gardens for some easy tips on making a prettier bed (and for some really yummy looking healthy recipes!). I wrote up this story a few months ago and I love everything about the mix-and-match style of that bed. And also the wall!
I recently worked on this story for Parents.com to help parents of little ones tackle the sometimes loaded issue of starting solids. We share 5 super accessible foods to start Baby Led Weaning (if you choose to go that route over purees) and share tips about food prep and serving sizes.
Check out the full slideshow on Parents.com right here.
If you're in need of a few last minute gift ideas—or want some gift ideas to tuck away for the rest of the year—check out the latest issue of Do It Yourself. I loved working on this story because, let's face it, making pretty things is a really fun way to spend a day! But also, crafting works a different part of my brain than writing or recipe development does, so it's always a joy to get to be creative in that way.
These pages are just a peak at the projects included in the story so be sure to look for the issue on newsstands now!
Head to your newsstand now—especially if you are in the midst of deciding which health plan to go with for next year—and pick up a copy of the November issue of Real Simple. I have my first byline for the magazine sharing advice from experts on how to make the most of your benefits, including medical, your 401k, and all of the other perks you may not even realize are available for the taking.
The next time you're by a magazine stand, check out the latest issue of Better Homes and Gardens. I have two stories inside—both of which I started working on a whole year ago—that I'm really proud of. This feature is a girls party with stylist Ruthie Lindsay and there's another front of book story on Aimee Wimbush Bourque and her pickling techniques. Check it out!
