Elbow macaroni is a pasta shape that immediately brings me back to my childhood. I’d cook the blue box with skim milk (that’s what I grew up on) and added double the amount of butter, crumbling potato chips over the top for a little added crunchy texture. Pulling inspiration from my upbringing into dishes that remind me of my childhood is a frequent occurrence as I develop new dishes. This shape to me, is a reminder to see the world through the eyes of a child. Growth, acceptance, and curiosity. I’m thrilled to support @delicacies_jewelry and purchases of this pendant will go to help @keepaustinfed.

On your birthday I’ve decided to post one of my most favorite pictures of Us. Steph has been my biff for 12 years. We’ve gone through many phases of life together and this particular picture wasn’t one of our easiest days individually but coming together, it became exactly what we needed. Not much was said but we were there for one another in a quiet space. My best friend and family.. Stephanie, you are a constant in my life and I say thank you for being you and always being what I need even if I don’t seem to know it for myself. Love you Boo. Happiest birthday
I’M HAVING A BABY... well sort of.. So excited to have partnered with the brilliant and supportive @sydellgroup and @thelinehotel to introduce my very FIRST RESTAURANT. I’ve named it Arlo Grey. I came up with it when, in a non restaurant related conversation, a friend asked IF I had kids what would I name the first one... and that was it. Appropriately nervous, confident, and excited. It’s sure to be a challenging and extremely vulnerable experience but one that came together through a fitting partnership with Sydell and a desire to say yes. I’ve probably put it off and really followed through for many reasons, one being nothing seemed to feel right until this one. And the bigger one being fear, a complex and often confusing emotion to sort through but without it, it wouldn’t be worth doing anyhow. Outside of great food and service, it’s about all the little details that leaves a guest feeling full from the moment they walk in our doors. So much gratifying hard work ahead in order to figure out what and how we’ll define that but one that is underway and I’m already so very proud of. I am truly looking forward to being part of an amazing community in #Austin and welcoming you All to Arlo Grey. #foodislove#ArloGreyAustin To be continued...
