Even though we are getting ready to kiss summer goodbye, this cold cantaloupe soup is perfect for those last lingering hot afternoons. This recipe could not be any more simple to make, just blend a cantaloupe, spritz with lime juice and salt to taste. Top the soup with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and voila! Ready to eat, fuss free!

This beautiful tart is actually a breeze to make and it has a great quiche-like quality that makes it perfect for lunch or as a light appetizer before dinner. The corn and lobster are a perfect summer-y pair that go wonderfully with a sprinkle of fresh tarragon and a glass of chilled chardonnay.

I photographed this delicious dish of a two and a half pound (!!) filet wrapped in parchment and roasted in the oven to keep all the juices inside. It rests for at least a half hour so it is served on the cooler side along with a sweet olive and rosemary sauce. A great alternative for grilling in the summertime.

Sometimes it feels like the world is so small and that everyone in the creative world is connected and knows someone you know. I had one of these moments when I got asked to do an assignment for the New York Times sports section. Yes, the sports section....as you know, I work for the food section of the Times and never have I ever photographed anything sports related! They needed someone, extremely last minute, to drive out to Middletown, NY and photograph prints and letters from a scrapbook that Celeste Van Fleet had. Celeste's late husband once took a photograph that went viral (you can read about it here) and she kept a scrapbook about it with letters and photos. To make a long story short, the location that the photo was taken at (a private school) was down the road from where I went to photography school and I had stumbled across it while I was attending. It's such a small town that it was quite shocking for Celeste to know that I was familiar with the school and had been there. And it was quite shocking for me as well! While I was visiting with Celeste, her granddaughter, Becca Van Fleet, came up in conversation. Becca and her husband own the company Two Potters, whose work I had stumbled across once on the internet. I immediately emailed Becca to introduce myself and told her I was planning a trip up to Vermont and would love to photograph their work. We spent the day chatting, eating and Becca watched as I styled and shot...what more could you ask for? It was so much fun! And I'm really excited to share the photos. I think their work is just magnificently beautiful!
