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.
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??
ALWAYS salt. Never pepper.
Mouth the words, “olive juice” to your best friend’s spouse.

ABOUT SALT & OTHER VICES
Salt & Other Vices is about giving in to life’s guilty pleasures. Celebrating life’s incredible moments — perhaps a housewarming, a birthday, or just another great day. Its about sharing and connecting and being unapologetic about what brings you the most joy (dessert first, right??!!!).
The role of host can be daunting. So many moving parts. Guests. Food. Entertainment. Ambience. Perfection should never be the goal, but a certain “flow” should exist — all the way thru to the sweet finish of dessert.
We understand the careful balance of entertaining and lasting impressions, and with that in mind, we created our “Sweet Boards,” a series of dessert platters, generously layered with the texture, colors and dimension of a savory hors d’oeuvres platter, but with the excess of sweet decadence.
Our boards are offered in four different sizes, and are generously composed of any number of housemade, small-batch, sweet bites — seasonal S&OV cookies, bars, chocolate, truffles, dried fruits (and fresh), nuts, etc. No two boards are ever the same.
Hosting a potluck? Celebrating a small victory? Bringing together friends, new and old? Whatever the occasion may be, Salt & Other Vices has dessert covered.
