Aly's Newsletter: Thursday Lox Edition
I hope anyone who fasted had an easy, meaningful fast.
As promised, here's what I am working on tomorrow and over the weekend.
1. For AllRecipes, I'm rounding up tools you need if you are obsessed with your toaster oven. So these would be tools you can use IN or WITH your toaster oven. Say, pans you can use in your toaster, cookware that goes in the toaster, toaster-safe tools/utensils, etc.n By Monday please!
2. For Clean Plates, I'm doing a story on tiger nuts. Sort of an explainer, and I hope to include quotes medical professional of some kind — registered dietician probably makes the most sense here, but also fine with a certified nutritionist, diet-centric MD, to weigh in re: what is a tiger nut?, benefits of tiger nuts, what tiger nut milk is (would love to link to a recipe), where to buy tiger nuts online (Would love to see a variety, some organic and some not but super cheap, some roasted and some not roasted), and a bit about tiger nut horchata and what it is (would LOVE to link to a recipe too), as well as where to buy it online. I have to turn this story around for Monday AM, so I'd LOVE any quotes I can get by tomorrow EOD so I can get some writing done on the plane (but otherwise over the weekend but before Monday) is OK. emails only firstname.lastname@example.org
3. For Forbes.com, International Coffee Day is coming up in a few weeks and I'm going to be writing about espresso martinis. If an expert, mixologist, etc, wants to weigh in on their origin, what makes these great, and tips for how to make a perfect one, I'd love that! Also open to some recipes and variants! By Monday please.
Reminder: Please do NOT just hit reply on this newsletter, but start a new email thread with a new subject with pitching. Otherwise, it's possible your email will be buried.

I'll be en route to Greenville tomorrow for Euphoria, so I might not get to post (unless there's new stories pending!), but be sure to follow my Instagram stories tomorrow afternoon through Monday for all the fun! I'll be traveling this weekend with my dear friends Amber Love Bond and Jenn Rice, so it'll be a girlfriend reunion in addition to a work trip!

In other news, in tribute to today having been Yom Kippur but also National Guacamole Day, I am breaking the fast tonight with challah avocado toast topped with Nova Lox.
Feels about right...!
