I am just home from a super-inspiring and motivating 3 days with 7 women whose businesses I knew of, but whom I’d never actually met. I would have loved to just had a coffee date with each to pick their brains and suddenly I got to spend a whole weekend with them in the same house! Liz of @sayyesblog + Audrey of @thislittlestreet put together a group of women they thought could benefit from each other and the result was truly magical.
As a person who works solo and went to art school (not business school), I often have so many questions about how to grow my brand. The 8 of us all have different backgrounds (and businesses ranging from small to really big companies) but so much valuable advice to offer each other. It’s also nice to be reminded that people LIKE to help each other, and how much stronger that can make all of us.
Thanks for everything @thislittlestreet @sayyesblog @susan.m.petersen @freshlypicked @wunderkin_co @shiragill @hillary_layne @jill__dempsey @sonnetjames ✨🙌🏽 #bizladiesretreat #womenhelpingwomen #womenentrepreneurs (This pic is from @thislittlestreet’s beautiful home in Tahoe that is also an @airbnb!)
Hi from Tahoe! I was excited to be invited on a #bizladiesretreat for the weekend hosted by @sayyesblog + @thislittlestreet. I’m staying in a house with 7 other amazing women (tap to see who!) and we are all brainstorming, sharing and helping each other with our businesses. It’s inspiring to hear people’s stories and be encouraged to think bigger! ✨ (Also, how cute is @thislittlestreet ’s kitchen?!)
When asparagus shows up in my weekly farm box, I know spring is near!! The one recipe I repeatedly hear people say they make from my first book is this Asparagus Tart. And they tell me when they make it looks like the photo in the book! 🌱
Spread out creamy cheese and a beaten egg on a sheet of puff pastry. Lay out raw asparagus (look for thin ones + trim stalky ends) then sprinkle with capers, pine nuts, garlic powder, dried herbs, salt and pepper. Bake at 375F for about 20 min or until the pastry is done and golden.

#tbt to almost exactly 1 year ago in the garden with baby Max, who wasn’t even walking yet🧡. We had just gotten back from our 3-month Europe trip and I was just getting into creating the #forestfeasttravels cookbook. Now it’s at the printer and out of my hands, Maxy is a full-blown runner and I am dreaming up what’s next!
In hindsight these “in-between” times are so crucial to my creative process and allow me the space to cultivate something great... but in the middle of it, the unknown can be a bit scary! But I’ve got some good ideas (too many probably) and looking forward to seeing what takes flight. ✨
Does anyone else get home, have a half hour to get dinner on the table and have no idea what to make? 🙋🏻♀️ Well, here are 5 vegan weeknight dinner ideas in a new blog post I put up today, including this Coconut-Curry Soup.
