Today marks my last “first day” of classes….ever! I can hardly believe that my last semester of college is here. As a way to celebrate the last weekend of summer, I made a trip up to Minnesota to visit my best friend and have a relaxing weekend of good food, shopping, and catching up before classes. Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures of many of the great things we ate this weekend! I’m still growing accustomed to the idea of … Read More

I had the most delicious dinner tonight at Cafe di Scala, made even better with the company of some amazing ladies at Better Homes and Gardens and Meredith Corporation. The lovely Maggie organized the dinner as a way to celebrate my summer internship, since it ends tomorrow!

About Me

Hi. I’m Madison.  I’m a 22-year-old Midwesterner and the voice behind Espresso and Cream.  During the day, I’m a food editor. It goes without saying that I love to cook and bake, and I’m happiest when I’m in the kitchen. I’m a exercise junkie, recently-converted vegetarian to the chagrin of my boyfriend, magazine fanatic, and an animal lover who desperately wants to buy a puppy, if only I could solve the white couch dilemma.  I don’t like pretentious, fussy, or … Read More

FAQ

In Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry1 Comment

Sure, you’re a food editor, but what does that really mean? I get this question a lot! It seems that the title stirs up a lot of confusion and a few raised eyebrows. After interning for Meredith Corporation‘s Better Homes and Gardens magazine I stayed on as a food editor after graduation where I worked with a bunch of really awesome people doing cool stuff, like eating and thinking about food.  In July of 2010 I accepted a position in … Read More
