Happy first week of spring! Eeeee. Spring and early summer are my favorite times of year. Even though it doesn’t feel terribly spring-like yet up here, I’m still reveling in the abundance of sunlight from the longer days we’re having, the few spots of balmy weather here and there, and the promise of warmth to come.
In anticipation of longer and lazier days, today I have a small piece up on Verily Magazine (yay!) on how to make Clinton Street Baking Company’s venerated pancakes, scaled down for just two. This piece was one of my favorites to shoot — pancakes, for one, are always fun to style, but especially so when you have the freedom of making someone else’s tried-and-true recipe (let alone one Neil Kleinberg’s award-winning world-famous tried-and-true recipe), and especially especially so when I get to snag a certain Bowl #2′s good-lookin’ hands for a little cameo. There’s nothing I don’t like doing with him, and it was so much fun (for me, at least!) to incorporate the man I love into the endeavor I love. Now that I know how much fun it is to have him model for me, I don’t know if you’ll ever see my monster hands on here again.
Hope everyone’s having a wonderful Monday!
