From my very first problems with American Woman and Woman’s Life, I’ve been enchanted by the world of magazines. The recommendation columns, glittery lip gloss suggestions, embarrassing however relatable tales and flared-jeans model inspo made me really feel — in a pre-social-media world — like I used to be a part of a really enjoyable neighborhood. Each month I waited for my magazines to reach so I may research them cowl to cowl and lower out the pages for my very own “magazines” in massive hardcover scrapbooks that I in all probability nonetheless have someplace. My love for storytelling and mixing phrases with colourful imagery finally discovered its option to the web, the place I began my meals weblog, My Title Is Yeh, in 2009.
This weblog opened a world of doorways for me, from my first desk job as an intern at Time Out New York to my first ebook deal for Molly on the Vary, and finally to my Meals Community present, Woman Meets Farm. So I believe it’s protected to say that my love of magazines has led to some actually cool alternatives! Now, to be guest-editing Meals Community Journal, a publication that captures the pure pleasure and pleasure that made me fall in love with magazines within the first place, is a complete dream come true.
In truth, I screamed after I discovered I’d be your October visitor editor. Visions of Miranda Priestly from The Satan Wears Prada flashed earlier than my eyes (however, like, a nicer, extra nurturing model of Miranda, as if she have been channeling Ree Drummond or Sunny Anderson). Sunny set the bar actually excessive because the journal’s first visitor editor final fall, so I knew I had some massive sneakers to fill. However I can inform you it was a blast!
On this problem, as an alternative of glittery lip gloss, we’ve got sprinkles. Flared denims have made means for everything-bagel sweatshirts. And the recommendation you’ll discover isn’t for snagging a spot on the cool lunch desk, it’s for making hand-pulled noodles (which, let’s be actual, will immediately make no matter desk you’re sitting on the cool desk). I’m a passionate fan of the whole lot and everybody we’ve included: the marzipan and tahini recipes, the hotdishes from Midwestern cooking celebs, the Benjamina Ebuehi desserts. I had a lot enjoyable engaged on this problem, and I’m so gosh-darn excited to share all of it with you. Because the temperatures get colder and the vibes inside get cozier, my hope is that these recipes and tales encourage you to get artistic, cook dinner one thing tasty and let your food-loving flag fly!
