It's no secret...
This very well be one of my favorite places on earth.... A beautiful farm and multiple ageing rooms makes this a truly unique and unbelievable experience....
Fantastic new bakery and sandwich shop in St. Louis called Nathaniel Reid Bakery many different offerings, from sandwiches on a variety of different house made breads and some of the most beautiful French pastry you will ever see! Nathaniel Reid is a very highly awarded and accomplished pastry chef and St. Louis is that much better of a city with this place here! Highly recommended for breakfast, lunch or any reason you could possibly think of!....
Steak sandwich with homemade pickles and creamy horseradish sauce
A long HOT summer means, a LOT of peppers! I'll be drying some making hot sauce and pretty much putting them in anything I can!
A little late afternoon sugar rush never hurts every now and then! If you're going to eat something like a doughnut ( fried bread and sugar with more sugar on top) to over simplifie, then make sure it's worth it, right?!? Well the apple fritter at Drive in Donuts in St. Louis is worth it! A perfect balance of soft and crunchy with big chunks of real apple and a very light glaze definitely makes it perfect late afternoon pick me up, who needs 5 hour energy....
Two women I love to be with and cook for!!!!!! I only hope my food tastes as good good as theses ladies look... #beautiful #tooperfect
This has been a tough summer, but its starting to look up so here are a few shots from one of the best shoots of the year!
It's no surprise to anyone that know my wife and I that we are both huge Princess Bride fans, so it's also no surprise that we named our new dog after one of the main characters so with that said... Meet Princess Buttercup
Once the temperature rises above I feel compelled to cook outside, something about the smells and sounds, the different textures and flavors you can get on a grill is something special!
For my money I don't care what any groundhog has to say, spring is around the corner when I see these little basterds in all the store, I know nothing about them is "good" but they're definitely a childhood favorite of mine and I always find myself having at least one every year.
No jobs all month is a bit defeating but I love photography and taking pictures of amazing people and the incredible food they can produce keeps me motivated #keeponmovingon
As an only child and a latchkey kid it was hard for me to understand the importance of a great "sit down and shut up,...so.....what kind of day day did you have"...... dinner!?!???'..... My wife grew up with 5 younger siblings and loves it... And after 14 amazing years with her and of corse her great.... Big itilan famliy I've never looked back no matter if it's a good or bad day with her I would never give A single one back!
Winter comes and the kitchen slows down late at night, working in kitchen isn't for everyone but I love it
Preping in the kitchen tonight for the restaurant tomorrow
Wow.... Seeing California for the first time was amazing, but getting to see the city in a way that not many others get to experience made it that much better
Fun shoot to get in the holiday mood
Solar power is a great way to leave less of a footprint and I'm very happy that the St. Louis area is using much more in the recent years, that being said, when it's 90 degrees at 6 AM it may not be the best day to do a photo shoot in the middle of a solar field. Hot hot hot!
Cajun on the Bayou is one of my favorite stops in Florida.... My tip get the bread pudding it's amazing
Yumm.... Way to go Katy's pizza, great dinner with four of my favorite women
