Folks, @eaters first-ever cookbook, Eater: 100 Essential Restaurant Recipes is coming out on September 19, and I have a recipe in it. FRIED DOLLAR BILLS is appearing alongside 99 other must-eat recipes from the most popular and influential dining establishments across the country. As with any boo...
For your Sunday reading pleasure, my latest Country Accent in @gardenandgun is now online. So yes, perhaps some things have remained the same in Deep Run, but I was still hell-bent on highlighting the ways our community used to be more connected; how we just naturally acted more hospitable, kind,...
Weve got a few more seats left at Weekend at Vivians this September and October. And were having a pool party, too. Its the best time of year to be on BHI. reserve your spot at the link in my profile.
Letting you in on a little secret that my Weekend at Vivian's guests already know: I'm a @smitheyironware FANATIC. Made by expert craftsmen at Smithey's workshop in Charleston, SC, I love the Farmhouse Skillet so much that I've been known to pack it in my suitcase when traveling. Watch to find ou...
My boo @cynthiawongster and the geniuses at @life.raft.treats asked me to collaborate on a pint for their Pints with Friends Vol. 2. Inspired by Scarlett's warm banana pudding, the flavor we created has sesame ice cream, milk chocolate ganache, sesame vanilla wafers, roasted banana swirl and dark...

We just posted two new dates for Weekend at Vivians workshops in September & October. Hit that ol linky link in my profile if you want to see what all the fuss is about and join us on beautiful Bald Head Island. No better time here than the fall.
Forgive me while I totally Carrie Bradshaw this month's edition of Country Accent for @gardenandgun.My demands may sound impolite and extra hefty for an oat latte, but I intended to do us both a favor. I may be new to dating, but I am not new. I am forty-five years old. I know what rubs me the wr...
Real ones might remember when Samantha Bee had me on her show to talk about using leftovers (we called it deja food ) to make your kitchen work better for you. Well, heres the truth: the whole time I couldnt stop thinking about how much better the conversation would be if @foodwastefeast was ther...
MAY THE FRIDGE BE WITH YOU. Its menu change time @vivs_fridge and weve got some good good stuff in time to treat mom to breakfast in bed. Listen up! @wineauthorities @taylorswineshop @galleystores @winemerchantcary @chefandthefarmer
When I resolve to do something, I say it out loud. Not out loud in my shower or in earnest for the mirror, but out loud, boldly to another person, often multiple people on separate occasions. Its an uncontrollable tic of mine that has served me extremely well in some circumstances and shamed me p...
Of all the photos shes taken of me, how silly is it that this mirror selfie is the best photo of @baxmiller and me together? Looking forward to sharing the mic with one of my best friends and favorite collaborators next weekend at @vertandvogues happy hour. Shell probably be wearing some shoes th...
