hmmessinger Don't you just love it when you get a quick and unexpected treat in the middle of a long work week? Sweet @tifforelie stopped by my house on Wednesday and worked her magic with some of my props while I prepped for a big shoot, leaving me in a mood ten times nicer than before she came. by @tifforelie 4d

hmmessinger I've been keeping two secrets all week long and I'm so relieved I can spill the beans today, now! The first is that my girl @thegrilledcheeserie is a competitor in @nashvillescene Iron Fork 2015 and I don't think it's emotionally possible for me to be more proud of her. The second is that she's cooking for a very special dinner on March 21, hosted by yours truly, presented by @causeascenenash , styled by @kyahhillis, and at @noblespringsdairy. Tickets available *soon.* 3w

hmmessinger I woke up this morning and it was snowing, so naturally I found myself craving tacos, which is not so much related to snow as it is a symptom of being awake. Anyway, #tbt : White Duck Taco in Asheville, NC. 3w

hmmessinger Let me reiterate my love for @biscuitlovebrunch : I love that while I was sipping on the best mimosa I've ever had, I ran into so many smiling and familiar faces, including my friend @localforkful who styled this ham plate for me. 3w

hmmessinger I put so much "everything" in my everything cookies that the batter overflowed from my stand mixer 😬 I'll be serving these guys and free coffee at @theskillery office hours on Friday from 8:30-9:30. Stop by if you have a question for me or just want to say hello! 1mon
