such a treat visiting @privateerrum today with @shortandmain! #madenotbought ✨ enjoying the creative process and thankful for laughing loudly at myself as i attempt to make ketchup-glazed meatloaf look good. in the end, still looks like the meatloaf of my childhood, but hey, it tastes good 😂 always love recipes by @ottolenghi! they're consistently flavorful, interesting, and reliable. this one is shrimp & clams with tomato, feta, oregano, and israeli couscous 😋

Local Suppers

Come to my first supper pop-up in Gloucester this weekend for a lovely, locally sourced meal to ring in the holidays! A couple years ago, I had the pleasure of attending my friend Martha’s Bantam Feast, a pop-up dinner in her apartment. I bought myself a ticket and drove over to Salem
