Happy Halloween!

October 31, 2012

After a few days with limited access to my computer due to Hurricane Sandy, I’m finally able to get posts up and running. While the city around me ┬áis still in recovery mode, I spent my morning flashing back to a perfect Saturday autumn morning I recently spent in Syracuse, visiting a local farm for some pumpkin picking. Hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Halloween!

Happy Autumn!

October 2, 2012

I don’t know where the time flies. Lately, I’ve been on project overload, and hopefully soon I’ll be able to share with you the things I’ve been working on outside of Camera in the Kitchen. But most importantly, my favorite season is in full swing. I was upstate this past weekend, and the leaves are starting to show their colors, pumpkins are out, and so are the fall menus. Here’s a little taste of our family Sunday dinner.

And now I’m off to Montana. Looking forward to bringing back some great Big Sky dishes to share with you soon! x

I Heart NY

November 11, 2011

This morning was one of those, “I love NY” moments while I was walking to work. The sun was out, the fall colors at their peak, and I just finished shooting last night’s dinner. Part II of my autumn pasta is finally here. I tossed together the pasta with olive oil, some seasonal herbs and goat cheese, adding in arugula, almonds, raisins, apple chardonnay chicken sausage and topped it with asiago cheese.

Have a wonderful weekend!

My friend Donna and I cooked up a seasonal menu the other day featuring some of our favorite ingredients like pumpkin, sage and cranberries. It was one of those quintessential autumn days with crisp blue skies and cool temperatures, so I enjoyed my afternoon outside making my way to the farmers market and then taking the ferry over to Long Island City to relish in the beautiful day.

How cute is this pasta? Knowing my love for this time of year, and anything autumn, my mom sent it to me the other day, and I’m so excited to make a festive pasta dish in the coming days. Now I just have to brainstorm a recipe.. Happy Friday! x
