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

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...

Echo Park Paddle Boat Adventures & Nautical Kitchen Design

I’ve been living-up summer like a maniac these past few days. I refuse to knowledge the back-to-school advertisements on television or read any emails telling me to stock up on autumn essentials. It’s just too soon ~ What’s with the rush!?! Regardless of the calendar’s seasonal shift, I will most certainly continue to drink vats of...
Modern Deco Design & The Ebell Of Los Angeles

Modern Deco Design & The Ebell Of Los Angeles

Los Angeles has no shortage of glamorous history and The Ebell is stock piled with decades of elegance. Not only did this building open (and continues) to serve as a private woman’s center offering classes, lectures and seminars by influential people of the world. Judy Garland had her first audition on The Ebell stage aaaand Amelia Earhart...
Angeleno Magazine Live & Dine LA

Angeleno Magazine Live & Dine LA

Summer and food festivals go hand in hand here in Los Angeles. In fact, it seems there’s hardly a weekend to be had between May and September without the opportunity to oogle over chef demos or practice the art of stacking as many tiny paper plates in one hand as possible. I embrace this culinary...

Jones Coffee Roasters Pasadena: Educational & Highly Caffeinated Workshops

When Eventbrite asked me to pick out my second #SummerEventure, I knew I wanted to simmer things down a notch and go on journey of tamer varieties… I mean, did you see what I did to myself on the  first outing?! Loco on the real. For this round I wanted to educate myself in an...
The Korean Restaurant Guide, Los Angeles

The Korean Restaurant Guide, Los Angeles

Recently my blog-buddy, neighbor and good friend Mr Nathan Hazard set out on the streets of Los Angeles’ Koreatown on an adventure with me to test drive a brand spankin’ new Korean Restaurant Guide Book. This obsession of indulging in a Korean feast together started a few weeks ago when we were both swooned by...
Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Tacos Unveiled In Los Angeles

Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Tacos Unveiled In Los Angeles

Now, I am by no means a frequent flyer of fast food…the only time you’ll spy me in a drive through is at In & Out twice a year, shamelessly hunched over an oozing animal style Double Double. I am human after all. I am also a pom pom waving cheerleader for clever advertising. Having...

Los Angeles Magazine: The Food Event 2012

The task of braving and successfully conquering a food festival can become somewhat of an art form. Especially in Los Angeles…people get craaaay-zeeee. Not only do you need to gracefully intercept nosh-bites, you’ve got to multitask the situation while balancing a teetering stack of at least 5 plates and a full glass of wine without...
Hiding From The Heat: Peach Ice Tea Infused With Mint

Hiding From The Heat: Peach Ice Tea Infused With Mint

It’s been HOT in these parts for far too long. Working from home with no Air-Con has proved…delirious. I’ve been seeking refuge in coffee shops, libraries….and mint. It’s funny how this mighty herb can trick you into feeling a few degrees cooler. I’ve been on an infusion roll, stuffing handfuls of the green machine into...
