Happy Labor Day, y'all! I just wanted to pop in and share with you some really fun news…someone I love and respect so much, Ree Drummond from The Pioneer Woman, recently relaunched her site (it's beautiful!) and added a wonderful section called Food & Friends and she asked me to be a founding contributor to the section.

My first recipe is live on the site: One-Pot Pasta with Mushrooms and Asparagus…it's a lovely recipe that's so easy to make. I know you'll love it!
