In case you didn’t know, I’m a regular writer for one of my favorite sites, The Kitchn. I love what they do there and their mission to help people live happier, healthier lives through their kitchens and homes and am honored to get to contribute.
This year I have the privilege of writing an ongoing column, called The Smart Shopper, offering tips and tricks for eating well while staying under budget. You can read all my past posts here.
