Bing In The Holidays!

Bing In The Holidays!

I spend most of my days scouting the internet for the most unique kitchen and entertaining products for a variety of outlets. I’ve had a long standing relationship with Google Image Search to find these treasures…in fact, I’ve always turned to them in those moments of  crazy niche or randomly themed design round-up needs…until now....
Holiday Bites: Chorizo & Tortilla Chip Stuffing Balls

Holiday Bites: Chorizo & Tortilla Chip Stuffing Balls

The heat is on! And by heat I don’t mean your gourd-roasting oven that’s a’blazin…I’m taking about the holiday peak season giving you those “neener neener” eye balls from around the corner. They are gazing, no taunting you with endless festivities in need of frolic worthy finger foods… Pressure much? Let’s face it – December...
The Urbanist Guide: San Diego

The Urbanist Guide: San Diego

I maintain a rather lovely long distance relationship with San Diego. In fact, this side fling has been going on for over a decade. I lived there while going to UCSD and to this day I still look forward to twice-annual bike rides along the beach, hiking in the Torrey Pines and getting my fix...
Lobster Risotto Dinner Party: Recipe & Tabletop Design

Lobster Risotto Dinner Party: Recipe & Tabletop Design

Summer is still holding on tightly around these parts and you won’t hear me complaining about the extra weekend evenings eating outdoors. I am, however, feeling a bit conflicted. Romantically craving the crisp autumn air and heartier meals…but not quite ready to let go of the ridiculously flavorful tomatoes and beefy avocados that seem to...
Feeling The Love: Heart Shaped Design For Your Kitchen & Table Top

Feeling The Love: Heart Shaped Design For Your Kitchen & Table Top

I’ve got a thing for my kitchen…we’re in a relationship, actually. She treats me well and I like to shower her with gifts to show my appreciation. I also rent a house and let’s just say this 1940s darling is charming, but girl’s gotta get a design update up in this place! Holler at me...
Real Talk: Let's Chat About Our Hustle

Real Talk: Let’s Chat About Our Hustle

I’ve been inspired lately. So inspired that I’ve been going out into the real world to meet real deal people…and by people I mean the ones that I only really “spoke to” on the interwebz. I know…I didn’t want to take off my slippers either (let alone put on real pants). But this is something...
Design Crush: Nicole Porter's Painted Wood For Your Tabletop

Design Crush: Nicole Porter’s Painted Wood For Your Tabletop

Do you ever have those moments while floating around the internet and you see something that makes you literally gasp out loud? Oh man, I love those discoveries!! I know that the painted and dipped wood trend has been all over the place, but Nicole Porter Design’s Etsy shop stopped me in my tracks. The...
BBQ Kebab Wraps & Homemade Tzatziki

BBQ Kebab Wraps & Homemade Tzatziki

It’s still surprising to me when my weekday dinner instagram photos get much more love than the other (more carefully) composed shots. You know the kind of photos you probably shouldn’t be uploading that are all grainy and muddy looking from your lack of decent kitchen lighting. Yup, those photos. The kind of photos I’m...
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...
Style Servings: Black Cutouts & Squid Ink Squash Cracker

Style Servings: Black Cutouts & Squid Ink Squash Cracker

Summer might be slow dancing with the autumn months, but the heat has been a’blazin here in Los Angeles. Ten straight days of oven door open, hair cowlickin’, do I really bother putting on pants type of heat. Let’s just say I’ve been taking advantage of my “air conditioning” (a wet washcloth on my face...
Quick Fix: Kimchi Vegetables & Soba Noodles

Quick Fix: Kimchi Vegetables & Soba Noodles

Okay. Can we be real? There are times…lots of times… when you’re just plain staggered, starving and frozen pizza-less. Those nights when even the most culinary organized are exuhusted and looking for a tub of dolmas to nosh on instead of dinner. We’ve all been there. Now it’s just time to come clean…all ten fingers style....
Slow Cooking With Style: Well Designed Tagine Cookware

Slow Cooking With Style: Well Designed Tagine Cookware

You may have seen my recent Lamb Tagine recipe  and witnessed my firework like urgency for you to purchase some proper cookware to execute said dish. I will not apologize for my enthusiasm. Clearly I’m a big fan of slow cooking and boy you better believe I like to do it in style. Regardless of...
