Myaamia Heritage Museum & Archives

I was honored to cater for two events at the Myaamia Hertitage Museum in Miami, Oklahoma. The first night consisted of desserts and punch for the exhibiting artists. The next night was the public opening where I brought the savory out in addition to desserts. Meghan, the director, was fabulous to work with. She is part of a close-knit, passionate community. Special thanks to Julie Olson, a member of the tribe, for recommending me to Meghan. Score one for Facebook. Meghan requested that I work in traditional ingredients such as corn, squash, nuts, berries, maple and honey. Challenge accepted. Many attendees expressed sincere gratitude for the deliciousness of my food; I soaked in the compliments happily!

The spread and my sweet helper.
She worked for the lemon tartlets LOL.

Summer with the Hedmans

I love cooking for my Monday client, the Hedmans! They appreciate everything I make and let me be creative and try new recipes on them. It’s SUMMER and it’s unreal humid, so time for lots of fresh salads. These mixes don't need to be drowned in mayo, just a touch sometimes is enough. It's really the varied vinegars and mustards that make the dressing. Always using fresh herbs and lemon or lime brightens any dish, especially this season.

Hummus Madness

The farmers market scene has become a super important venue for the business. An honor working alongside such passionate farmers, vendors, and artisans at Joplin Empire Market. They are letting me play, experiment, demonstrate, sell, and plug my personal chef service as I try to figure out what people want to eat, and how and where they want to eat it. Bottom line, I just want to feed folks delicious, healthy food. Special thanks to Joanna at Mauve Designs for helping with my labels, and to USA Print for printing them every week. Also a shout out to regular customers at Empire Market; your business is greatly appreciated!
