Welcome! I’m the author of the Amazon bestselling memoirs Feast: True Love in and out of the Kitchen and Plenty: A Memoir of Food and Family, and the Editor-in-Chief at ParentCo. I write and speak about parenting, food, body image, and beyond.

My work has been featured in New York Magazine, Bon Appetit, Saveur, VICE, SELF, Wine Enthusiast, Thrillist, Time Out New York, Salon, and the Chicago Review of Books. I teach writing classes and live in Frenchtown, NJ with my family. I love stinky cheese.
