Not to sound like a culinary stalker or anything, but I worship the ground you cook on. Everything you do inspires me, and I find myself scouring your blog every single day for photos and recipes and other little tidbits of your soul that make me even more envious and in awe of the life you lead. Everything you touch turns to gold. Every dish you create is presented in such a beautiful and elegant fashion that you could make a simple bed of greens look like food fit for a queen. You are vegetarian, you are healthy, but you also have a kick ass recipe for some serious Scharffen Berger brownies. (I’ve still got to carve out a day where I put on my best stretch pants and make a plate of those brownies..see if I share!). You are humble and honest, and share your infinite amount of expertise and wisdom with the rest of us culinary hacks. You write posts about your travels, such as the best places to stay in Rome and Paris and include gorgeous pictures, that further reinforce the fact that I want your life . You have tips for those (like me) who want to learn more about food photography. Your book signings are communal potlucks. You even give instructions on how to build a natural foods pantry. Hell, I’m even jealous of your first name.
Though some could say that I’m not really a loyal fan as it has been 2 weeks since your cookbook “Super natural every day” came out (enough time to get on the NY Times best sellers list!), and I have yet to hold a copy in my hands. But I can promise you that after my next pay day and my finances are a little more secure, I will be purchasing two copies of your book…one for me and one for a very special woman in my life.
You love cooking, travel, photography, natural foods and making books. Guess what? So do I. So won’t you adopt me into your life and tell me how to be you?
