I'm a freelance writer and content developer who loves the challenge of writing about something new. There's a book in here somewhere, and one day I'll write it. Until then, you'll find me writing and blogging about family and parenting, food and cooking, books and movies, etiquette and entertaining, and the occasional travel brag or political opinion.

This is why I never go out shopping on Black Friday. Moral superiority aside, I spent way too much at Net-a-Porter this Black Friday, but that doesn't count, because I didn't have to go anywhere. The Kitchn, November, 2016.
My roommate from back in the day (Hi, Mariah!) and I were trying to remember if we ever had food in our apartment. We didn't, but somehow we didn't starve. These days, it's like I'm expected to have food all the time. And here's how I keep it together when life is moving too fast. The Kitchn, November 2016.
