In my latest article for Random House’s TasteBook I share recipes for my favorite Mexican street snacks, including TostiNachos and these Walking Tacos made with Tapatio Doritos. They’re perfect for the Super Bowl, a day when it is perfectly acceptable to eat all of the junk food you’ve been attempting to avoid the rest of the year.

I have two features in this month’s Edible Baja Arizona Magazine. For “The Plate” I selected and photographed four local dishes that should never be taken off of the menu. The Mexican street corn at NOX and the Charcuterie plate at Zona 78 are two of my picks. Visit the Edible Baja website to read the article and see the rest.

I’m super excited to announce that my book Sprinkles!: Recipes and Ideas for Rainbowlicious Desserts is available for pre-order on Amazon.com!

It’s a fun and kind of weirdly wonderful, whimsical book, and I believe it’s the first cookbook dedicated entirely to the appreciation and understanding of sprinkles.  I hope you all love it!
