Dwell On Design 2012: Drool Worthy Picks

Dwell On Design 2012: Drool Worthy Picks

This past weekend  the design obsessed flocked to downtown Los Angeles for the Dwell On Design expo and helplessly drooled over the latest and greatest must haves for your abode. I, too, was short of breath and dizzy from all the perfection. If only I could have gone grocery shopping at each booth to create...
Weekend Bites East Lost Angeles: Highland Park

Weekend Bites East Lost Angeles: Highland Park

I’ve lived on the east side of Los Angeles for nearly 7 years now and loving every new discovery along the way. It’s amazing even after hundreds of countless weekends exploring the tiniest of huts I’m still finding city-gems that woo me and my love for this city grows more than I thought possible. I...

Spicy Lime Fruit Salad: Ode To Los Angeles Street Fruit

Living in Los Angeles I feel incredibly blessed being surrounded by so many diverse cultures on a daily basis. With diverse cultures come diverse eating and I assure you we’re traveling the globe with every meal. No more than a 10 minute drive can zip line me to Thai Town, Little Tokyo or Mariachi Square. Even Ethiopian cuisine is...

Hey good lookin’… Maybe you’ve seen me around? Yeah…I’m pretty into you. {swoon} I’ve been lucky enough to have Handsome Coffee Roasters in my life for a bit now.

Weekend Bites: Soft Served & Fresh Starts

Weekend Bites: Soft Served & Fresh Starts

Well hello there! Yes, I realize I’ve been a little quiet around these parts. Travel to weddings and travel to family and well all kinds of lovely things have taken me away from head quarters. All happy times maaayyybe with the exception of mouth surgery that happened a few days ago. Let’s just say I’m...

Weekend Bites: Kumquat Chutney & Momofuku Super Bowl

Yeah, yeah…I might (choose) not remember how old I am, but I do actually realize what day of the week it is. Wait…It’s Tuesday evening already!?!? Yikes. Time to get back on schedule and beat this tiny bit of lingering Monday blues. I mean, no complaints, but what a weekend! I think I might be...

Lunch Break: ATX Kitchen, Atwater Village CA

I want to introduce you to someone special. Please say hello to my dear Atwater Crossing Kitchen. I also want to warn you that I’m crushing mad style on this new friend of mine. I’ve had my eye on this place since it opened a few months back, but being the coy little lunch spot...

Dearest Los Angeles, Listen up! Let’s not be shy, I no longer want to keep my feelings in the dark. I’m ready to come out and share how I really feel…I love you!! No really, it’s true.

Putting The Hero In Hero: Paul Reiser Gets His Own Sandwich

Putting The Hero In Hero: Paul Reiser Gets His Own Sandwich

There are few people who will achieve the highest known accomplishments in their lifetime. A handful will walk on the moon. Some faces will appear on currency. Others… will have a sandwich named after them. In my opinion, being dubbed any sort of food item sounds like the ultimate victory. It seems this sentiment is...

Top 5′Oclocktails: Los Angeles

Whether you’re running errands, hugging friends or just getting the last bits of work done…there comes a time during the weekend when everyone needs a break. Forget happy hour, this is a much needed “my feets are tired” or “just need a rest’tail“… No really, I need a time-out please. Fear not, for no matter...

I’ve had a crush on these guys for a while. Heard about them cruising around Los Angeles and never got to take a bite – next thing you know, they are on TV…daaang kids! Luckily today while running around town I caught glimpse of their magical beast of a truck and we dove in (The...
Food Crush: Test Kitchen LA

Food Crush: Test Kitchen LA

Have you ever wished there was a restaurant with guest chefs on permanent rotation? I did. Years ago I bounced around the idea of a kitchen lab with friends where chefs from around the world would spend an evening or two showcasing their specialties. They said it would never work.  No one buys “tickets” to...
