THE “EVER-DREAMING” DREAMER

Over the years, my path has taken many turns. I have forged a solid family unit, owned a boutique catering business, designed a modern home, managed a life style blog, written a cookbook, produced a holiday gift pop-up — all the while, reaching for the next best thing — that one special endeavor that would bring me the most joy. Life works in funny ways. Through my years of hunting and gathering life experiences, I came to realize that not just one thing brings me joy. Food inspires me. Travel inspires me. Art inspires me. Fashion inspires me. Relationships inspire me. Experiences inspire me. Music inspires me. In short, life inspires me.

Salt & Other Vices is the culmination of those things I love most — the perfect platform to blend and share my inspirations with others.

SALT OR PEPPER??

ABOUT SALT & OTHER VICES

I am the “every-girl” — I’m devoted to my health (nothing in excess), I put other’s needs before my own, I save before I spend, I dream, but not too wide, because I hate to be disappointed, etc, etc, etc. Despite these steadfast traits, I crumble at the sight of a perfect chocolate chip cookie and define my life’s “story” by the quality of experiences — not the quantity.

Salt & Other Vices is about giving in to life’s guilty pleasures. Living in the present. Its about setting your own rules (dessert first please!, right???!!) and indulging your vices. Being unapologetic about what brings you the most joy.

My gourmet cookie-pop-ups tease the “every girl” in all of us, with my highly-celebrated recipes. Saltandothervices.com opens the doors to the world – to the people and places that have shaped my story.

That moment. You know that moment? When you experience perfection in the form of salty and sweet – that mind-blowing space in time is Salt & Other Vices. A little naughty? Perhaps. But totally worth the indulge.

Visit my gourmet cookie pop-ups – limited-edition retail experiences, each popping up in a unique local shop. Leave restraint at the door. Indulge in my Everything, Chocolate to the Power of 2 and my legendary, Vanilla Bean Salted Chocolate Chip cookies.

Saltandothervices.com explores people, who are unapologetically living their best life, and places that leave you wanting more. Guided by experiences rather than mere observations, saltandothervices.com shares adventures of the road less traveled, the unforgettable meals that still come up in conversation and the shops that inspire. It introduces its readers to people worthy of envy, with curious skills and who, like us, are striving for greatness.

Here’s a little secret — too much of a good thing….is a good thing! I know this to be true because my customers keep coming back for more.

Join the Salt & Other Vices revolution and indulge your vices!
