I’ve been creating seasonal content for our gorgeous local print magazine here, Edible OKC. I’ve long loved Edible’s global mission to support regional food culture and highlight local foodies.

Recipes: Springtime Socca

Before college, I spent a dreamy summer living in Nice, France – a gorgeous city on the turquoise waters of the French Riviera. For a while, I dated this Niçoise man who lived with his bohemian mother, her name was Fanny.

Recipes: Spaghetti Squash Pasta

There’s a delicate art to making a red sauce. I know so because I watched my Italian father and aunt spend years refining and perfecting the process of our family recipe.
