Rough chop the fresh rosemary and combine with 1/4 cup of olive oil. Transfer the oil to a large bowl, add the marrow bones and toss to coat. Season the bones with salt and pepper.


Light the grill. When temperature is at medium high, lay the bones cut side up on grate.  Cover and grill for about 20 minutes, or until the marrow is warmed, sizzling.


Brush the bread slices on both sides with olive oil and grill, turning once, until toasted. Serve the bones with the toasted bread and finish with salt, pepper, and chopped parsley.

Emily ONEMANBANDIT Smith turns heads. When she walks into a room, people can’t help but spill their drinks, shift their attention, and forget about whatever the hell they were talking about. Sure, she has tall, chiseled Ralph Lauren model looks, but it’s really her air of jovial accessibility that makes her so appealing to friends and strangers alike. I mean, she can talk to ANYONE as if they had been life long best friends, even complete strangers; and that laugh that is so big bold and undeniably infectious can make even the most socially awkward person feel tingly warm and accepted.
