12.16.16

What a week!!! Filming The Chew on Wednesday was a blast. Everyone was so nice there! I had such a great time.  And you can catch me on Monday, the 19th. I close out the show, so the last three minutes belong to ME. It’s like this week is trying to make up for the rest of 2016 sucking so hard.  It’s doing a pretty good job though.  I’m so excited to post about the crossover collaboration I took part in this week!! As most of you know, I’m an actor, and this blog has become a really exciting creative outlet for me.  It allows me to combine other things I love in life, like style and baking, and put it out there consistently.  Acting is hardly ever consistent, and you’re never in control of the jobs you book because of so many random variables that if I told you just a fraction of them would blow your mind. Well, I am certainly not the only actor to take creativity into my own hands. My friend, Leah has done the same.  She’s a wonderful actor who, like me, wanted a creative outlet when she wasn’t working on a show.  Coincidentally, she debuted her podcast, The Compass, the same week I debuted this blog!! So we’ve both been on this side-project journey, and we have finally brought our projects together.  Leah came over and baked a berry crisp with me (which we demolished almost in its entirety within one sitting) and I was a guest on her podcast, which talks to artists about dealing with the industry, fighting the dark times, and the journey thus far.  I’ve loved listening to it since she first started because it’s made me realize that no matter what level of “success” people seem to have, we’re all battling similar demons.  You can download it on iTunes, but also go to her Facebook page here and follow it to get updates. It’s a great thing to listen to on the train, or if you need to escape from life a little.

12.14.16

That’s how the nursery rhyme goes right? No? Hm. Weird. Welcome to the second installment of Cranberry Week!!! I have to say, this week has been full of positivity and exciting news.  You’ll have to wait for my big announcement at the end of this post (cut to everyone scrolling all the way down). And I also have a very fun collaboration I’ll be posting on Friday, and definitely not in the way you’d probably expect.  Not to mention I had the pleasure of being part of a Leonard Cohen tribute concert in Brooklyn Monday night, am having a few close friends over on Saturday, and will get to enjoy a little holiday cheer at a Christmas party tomorrow night.  Don’t worry, I still haven’t bought one Christmas present, I’m still a secret mess.

12.12.16

Those two things totally go together right?  Well I’m making it so.  Welcome to Cranberry Week!!! I’ve decided to spend the whole week focusing on, what I think, is an unsung hero of the berry world.  When you think of berry things, people go to strawberries (& rhubarb), or blackberries, or blueberries, but when do cranberry first come to mind?? I feel like it’s way down on the list, and I don’t know why! They’re so delicious and tart, and can be used in so many different delicious baked things.  So I’m putting it up on a pedestal and giving you three great ways to use cranberry.  They’re all accessible and you will gobble them up and are a great option while they’re in season and all over the place! So stop poking that needle through them to string up on your tree with some popcorn, put them in something tasty, like a clafoutis, which I’m showing you today. Winter can be all about berries….if you want.
