my favorite way to 
travel is with a baguette
strapped to my backpack.


Smooshed in the backseat,
I know how sandwich meat feels.
This is empathy.

I used to work at Food52. I'm probably the person who picked all of the cookie dough out of the cookie dough ice cream.

A day at the pool
Is about one thing only:
Mozzarella sticks.

vacation is just
real life with a better view
when with little kids.

Salt, wine, butter, cheese
This is what vacation means
To me. And sleep, too.
