Cooking Solo | Cookbook

I've spent some time now with this cookbook: up late at night in bed, lounging on the couch, and dirtying it in the kitchen. And although I'm completely biased for having worked on it, I have to say that Cooking Solo, due out on March 8th from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, is such a fun and useful book! 

Author Klancy Miller is funny and smart, and her recipes are considered yet very do-able. I think that she and I share a lot of sensibilities both in the kitchen and aesthetically, and I've really valued getting to work with her on this, her first cookbook. Check out some sample images below and go pick it up to see it in person. The design is fresh and clean, and it printed beautifully! Prop styling by Martha Bernabe, and food styling by Carrie Purcell.

Simple Green Smoothies | Cookbook

I really believe in everything in moderation but I'm always trying to be a bit more virtuous with my breakfasts. Maybe I like to start the day leaving room for myself to be bad later? It took me a bit to really get into green smoothies—my concoctions were often too earthy to get excited about. This shoot, for the Simple Green Smoothies cookbook, helped me get inspired to experiment and (yes, I know this sounds crazy) be less intimidated by earthy, muddy “failure.” Jen and Jadah showed me there are endless possibilities and I’m so happy that their recipes are out in a print collection! I had a great time shooting the lifestyle portion of the book in California with their beautiful families. Our two days were spent playing by the pool, going to the farmers market, and blending up lots of healthy goodness. Here are some of my favorite images from our shoot:
