September is Date season! Fresh Dates in the market today in Boston! I love dates and I’ve never had them fresh like this! THIS MARKET WAS INCREDIBLE. I’ve never seen such low prices. A man told me that all these exotic beautiful foods come in after they haven’t been sold to grocery stores, hotels and restaurants and the price hits rock bottom because fresh food doesn’t keep past the weekend! In essence it was all the seconds or last chance produce but it was incredible. 3 avocados for 1$! Every herb and chili you could imagine. Its always a thrill to see things I’ve never seen before. #f52farmstand #f52monochrome Well without a doubt Boston has stolen a little piece of my heart! I can’t wait to come back with my Family!

The great Boston Cannoli debate! Mikes or Modern? I enjoyed Mikes yesterday and it was excellent! This Morning I ventured out ordered the same pistachio Cannoli from Modern. I have to say Modern Wins!!!! They filled the shell fresh and it was Ice cold, not too sweet ricotta cream. I do prefer the crushed pistachios from Mikes on the end though;) Tell me your favs from both places on Hanover Street!! #rjftravels #boston #f52travel #rusticjoyfulfood

Honored & Humbled. It’s not everyday that you get asked to participate in changing children’s lives and get to do it alongside such an #icon. @oprah has partnered with @kroger to eliminate hunger. Working with Oprah and Kroger especially @kristal.howard & @fitmencook was a dream today. @feedingamerica & Kroger have served 325 million meals since just last year. The Devine Ms. Winfrey donates all the proceeds from her O that’s good line to stomping out hunger.
I grew up using programs like free & reduced lunch. My family was no stranger to the food bank or government commodities. My folks worked so hard to provide for us and that work ethic drives me in my core. Food changes lives. We MUST do all we can to feed America’s children. Packing take home snack packs for Cincinnati’s children today solidified in my heart if there were ever a doubt that we are created for such a time as this. Cincinnati leads the nation as number two for impoverished children. I will never grow tired of proclaiming Gods goodness and doing all I can to help people. You have a voice, you have a purpose. Feed somebody. Drop off that meal, give to food banks. #zerohungerzerowaste #oprah #dreamscometrue #oprahwinfrey

Happy Birthday Rustic Joyful Food! We are officially 6 years old according to the state of WA. Did you know that there are multiple moving parts to our company. We are a boutique high end commercial photography house. We provide content to a multitude of clients. We are a publisher, a set of authors, editors, stylists, designers, teachers and visionaries! We have recently opened an agency wing to our business getting our clients the very best for their work! We are driven by the idea that success is NEVER measured by the things you amass but more by the difference that you make. I know we are making a difference in changing the way people think about cooking, in showing people that life is good right NOW. In finding the joy even in the midst of hard times. We are teaching, LIVING life and doing good work. At the end of the day we FIERCELY love each other and our sweet family comes first. To see what God has done over these last 6 crazy SHORT years is a miracle. Our relationship comes first, then the fighting about deadlines 😂😍🙌🏻. We are celebrating all month long! So grab a sweet and celebrate alongside us!!! I love you Mike, @themichaelkartes you hard workin cute man 💗 MY ROCK, my best friend, my partner in everything.

I’m in NYC to be with my friends at the @rachaelrayshow today! Earlier this year on a trip to NYC I lost my luggage. It literally had all my favorite and best everything in it. I was slated to appear on the Rachael Ray show that afternoon and I had to take to Manhattan to find everything from undies to dental floss! I definitely had no budget to replace my wardrobe and my tiny budget I did have was supposed to be for my stay in New York! (Thank you to the show for legit taking care of my every need!) Mike & I hit the Starbucks on the corner to get going early that next morning. A man in front of us who appeared to be homeless chose a sandwich from the case, he stepped up and put his sandwich on the counter and said “I’ve got $1.13, it’s all I got, I’m hungry”. Without hesitation the woman behind the counter said “ok, I got you!” The Gentleman next to her said “what are we drinking brother?” The man said “no no just the sandwich” The barista replied” nah Bro, we got you, what will it be?” The man put in his order for his coffee. I gotta tell you, sometimes in life we may only have that $1.13 left and you’ve got to Lay it down and Trust that God’s got you. I walked by that Starbucks this morning and I stood on the corner and cried. Mostly because i cry, 😂😭😍 it’s who I am and also mostly because dreams come true, God’s plans are good. When we are driven by purpose and not success, incredible things happen. You have a purpose. Today no matter what you are facing I want you to know that it’s time to lay it all on the line, let your purpose come through and don’t be afraid. God has the best plans for you💗
