Exploring Real California Milk - #CAMilkTour

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...
Las Vegas Weekend Guide - Refinery29

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...
Migas Recipe & The Lingering Magic of Texas

Migas Recipe & The Lingering Magic of Texas

I know, I know. I’ve been talking a lot about Texas lately. Talkin’ about how I love their caviar while toobin’ and their frozen icee cool down while…well, toobin’. But Hey! When something  is done right it tends to stick to a special place in your heart (and in my case in my stomach). I...
Tiger's Blood Cocktail :: Inspired By Barton Springs

Tiger’s Blood Cocktail :: Inspired By Barton Springs

Oh summer! Ice cream trucks and water-side refreshment huts full of frozen treats and for me… one hot stuffy house where ice cubes, wet washcloths and an industrial-sized floor fan make a stand-in for proper air conditioning solutions. On that note: You’re fired “AC”. When the house burns hotter than the weather map claims,  it’s...
Hamilton Pool, Austin TX: Texas Caviar Recipe With Chorizo

Hamilton Pool, Austin TX: Texas Caviar Recipe With Chorizo

I’ve just recently returned from one wild-west of an adventure over in Austin TX. After spending a few days catching up with the fine peeps at the BlogHer Food conference and panel-chatting about turning your blog into a business, it was time to kick off my shoes and get to know the local side of...
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...
The Parker Hotel, Palm Springs CA

The Parker Hotel, Palm Springs CA

Oh Palm Springs, you coy little city. How you effortlessly flirt your way into my life every spring. How you convince me that gold lame, muumuus and that second bottle of champagne were all good ideas. How you so kindly wave me in with your hundreds of white desert windmills and perfectly temperate pools… and...
Salt Lick BBQ: Austin, TX

Salt Lick BBQ: Austin, TX

Fact: If you visit Texas without eating proper BBQ…don’t bother visiting again. No really, it’s a felony. Okay, not really…but you probably already know this much – BBQ is life around those parts. Serious business people. BBQ POR VIDA on the real. Regardless of “I’m a better grill master thank you” arguments among neighbors, there...

Redefining Community: Alt Design Summit 2012

I know, I know. I don’t typically veer away from Foodworld around these parts, but seeing how absolutely intense and exciting the last few days have been…well, a mini detour was in order (as was a long…looooong nap). This past week, creative lovelies from all over the country descended upon Salt Lake City for  Alt...
Bodega Tapas Bar: Sydney

Bodega Tapas Bar: Sydney

Without question, my favorite meal while visiting Sydney was at Bodega Tapas Bar. The atmosphere is cheerful, young and completely off beat. Located on a quiet street in the posh and arty Surry Hills neighbourhood. Outside groups of people crowd on the sidewalk hoping to grab a seat. Inside you can see a playful comic...
Taking a Dip: Icebergs, Sydney

Taking a Dip: Icebergs, Sydney

For me, beach clubs conjure up summertime memories of watching Saved By The Bell and those few special seasonal episodes located on Malibu Beach (Okay, I just aged myself there…). Having never been a member of such an establishment, I made sure to carve out time for a specific adventure to Icebergs Beach Club upon...
Cookie: Melbourne

Cookie: Melbourne

Located on the first floor of The Curtain House on Swanston Street in Melbourne’s Central Business District, Cookie greets you with a handsome wood bar, doily covered tables with mismatched china and a loud volume of conversation. Business men in suits huddle around table top bars with tall craft beers (over 85 to choose from),...
