The Transitional Table: 15 Design Buys To Get You Through The Holidays

Getting the table dressed for the holidays can sometimes start off as an overwhelming assignment. Place cards, napkin rings…formal or casual flatware sets. When is it too much and why does it all have to be overly thematic for the occasion? As novel, lovely and prized as our vintage / family holiday-specific sets are, they...
Crock Pot Time Machine & A Quick Kimchi Beef Tofu Soup

Crock Pot Time Machine & A Quick Kimchi Beef Tofu Soup

I am a very nostalgic person. Maybe even a little sensitively so. Over the years, well before food became my main occupation, I’ve collected trivets and memories in the form of well-loved kitchen items. My Great Grandpa’s 1930′s Hotpoint Gazelle Toaster. My Great Grandmothers Clock Cookie Jar. Fading sets of neutral toned pyrex bowls. Cast...

Mini Rosemary Cheddar Waffle Sandwiches: Let There Be Brunch!

I have been looking for an excuse to make waffles for a while. Correction:  I have been looking for an excuse to buy a waffle iron for a while. I’m not sure why the obsession began. Benedicts, egg-topped pizzas and the occasional leftover-induced towering tostada have been my usual weekend jam. Maybe there’s something nostalgic...

Autumn Inspired Kitchen Designs :: Swooning With The Season

Oh Autumn! Sigh. At last you’ve shown your lovely rose gold face. Even if it’s still 80 degrees outside, you’re glowing in a new hue! The light has shifted and the mornings are starting off a bit crisper. Starting the day off with tea, the thoughts of pumpkin hunting and even the potential of finally...
Culinary Throw Downs & The Crema Pesto Brie Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Culinary Throw Downs & The Crema Pesto Brie Grilled Cheese Sandwich

You might recall a few weeks back I had the exceptional opportunity to visit and tour California Dairy Country. What might have started off as a friendly newborn calf frolicking-dairy dancing-cheese eating championship actually turned into a full-on throw down of ultimate culinary competitiveness. In other words, once we made it back to San Fransisco...
Los Angeles Thai Food Festival: Like Whoa

Los Angeles Thai Food Festival: Like Whoa

Most Angelenos are fortunate enough to have a wide variety of authentic world cuisine no more than 30 minute radius from their home. A diverse food-scape is what makes this city so exciting to explore – both as a tourist and a dweller of 10+ years. Where I’ve done my fair share of Korean & Vietnamese...

Tastemade Video App: Your Own Food Show On The Go!

There are fewer and fewer places in Los Angeles you can actually refer to as “hidden gems”. Everyone is an eats excavator these days and with online food maps, hundreds of local review sites and basically a massive magnified glass over this city it’s hard not to know when to turn off the main road...

Exploring Real California Milk – #CAMilkTour

Hey guys..I know, it’s been a minute since we’ve last hung out. I’ve been spending quite a bit of time on the road exploring California this past month. Parts of the off the beaten interstate that, admittedly, wouldn’t have been placed on top of my getaway wish-list. Places where dairy princesses reign supreme and milk...

Side Show: Chopped Salad With Oregano Vinaigrette

We are moments away from a weekend filled with picnics, BBQs…front stoops with blankets and chilled wine. Moments from all and every kind of last chance let’s give summer a big ol’ long hug goodbye type of eating situations. Yup, I’m pretty thrilled too! Now is not the time to frantically make a grocery list...

Las Vegas Weekend Guide – Refinery29

Let it be known: I never thought myself a Las Vegas kinda gal. In fact, the thought of the desert alone makes me melt into a little fair skinned puddle of SPF. Heat and I aren’t exactly friends, which is funny seeing I don’t own an Air Conditioner and my last three weekend getaways have...

Summertime, You’re Not Leaving Me Yet: Barnsdall Friday Wine Tastings

I know,  I’ve already told you this.  I’m still having a really difficult time prepping for my breakup with summer. One might even call it…denial. I think it mostly has to do with the mild weather and lack of any tropical escape this year. Once I’m ready to dive into the season it always seems...
