I've been writing for The Kitchn since 2008. For a list of my posts, go here. For a list of my Weekend Meditations, go here. Also, I'll be leading the Kitchn Cure this year, a 4-week journey to a more mindful, considered (and tidy!) relationship with your kitchen. The Cure ran in September/October, 2015 and is archived here.
