Gettin' down with real food.

Update & what I've been up to

It's been some time since I gave this space any attention, but not for lack of inspiration. My food voice has been finding a monthly home in our city's newspaper, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Today, my most recent article was picked up by USA Today online, crazy. Now in the swing with my newspaper gig, I hope to get back to sharing more here on the blog. I wanted to take this opportunity to compile the articles I've written over the past year. so while you're waiting for some new Funky Beets content, here's a little something to browse through. I'm filled with gratitude today for family and friends who've shared my recipes and writing and supported me wholeheartedly in this journey that I hope is just beginning. I have some big dreams about how to share my love of cooking and make real, delicious food more accessible to everyone. I love to chat with anyone who feels the same.
