Just Saying Hi

While editor of Taste of Home, I had the privilege to guide the team serving up an ongoing supply of original food and lifestyle material for the flagship (6 issues/year) and special interest magazines (30+ issues/year). This content fueled passion and trust for an iconic, one-of-a-kind brand among an audience of 2.2 million readers.

A Sweet-Tart Road Trip

I hopped in a Jeep with Taste of Home photographer Jim Wieland and set stylist DeeDee Jacq on a fall adventure deep in Wisconsin’s cranberry country. From the Taste of Home September/October 2015 issue.

Summer Bucket List

Ah, a juicy team brainstorm. Even more invigorating and refreshing than a summer thunderstorm! Headline and display copy jam-sessions are at their very best when edit and art teams discover language that fits together like a puzzle and makes the reader feel your intent. Here’s one of my favorites from my time as editor at Taste of Home. First published in the Summer 2018 issue.

Mom’s Chicken

While I was editor at Taste of Home, we recruited staffers to share their mom’s recipes for a Mother’s Day themed feature. Without consulting each other, these guys all raved out their mom’s famous chicken. Rather than choose one, we leaned into it, and made four moms very proud. First published in the April/May 2018 issue.

We So Corny

Once or twice a year the word nerds working on the flagship magazine at Taste of Home allowed ourselves a little overindulgence in puns. From Taste of Home’s Summer 2017 issue.
