Los Angeles Magazine: The Food Event 2012

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...
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...
Brunch-Timing: Crab Cake Benedict

Brunch-Timing: Crab Cake Benedict

If I could, I would have brunch on the daily.  I’m talking about patio sitting on a sun-soaked Sunday kind of action. I’m also talking about bubble sipping filled with laughter and sharing something preferably with an egg on it. You know, the weekend works. For me, brunch is more than a meal… it’s a magical time capsule of...
Handsome Coffee Roasters: Los Angeles

Handsome Coffee Roasters: Los Angeles

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. I live in a neighborhood where coffee culture has a strong, passionate, caffeine pounding heart and was first introduced at one of my favorite little spots...
Weekend Bites: Kumquat Chutney & Momofuku Super Bowl

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

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...
Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

HAPPY NEW YEAR GASTRO GEEKS! This New Years Eve was a special night of celebrating with one of our favorite simple things (tacos!) and incorporating a few new tricks (cactus anyone?). There are two traditions I will definitely keep well into the new year: making my own tortillas and continuing to fine tune my slasa...
Casa De Nerd: Lobster Boil 2011

Casa De Nerd: Lobster Boil 2011

Sometimes a lady gets a certain urge. Sometimes that urge is to buy an 82 qt Bayou Stock Pot (Oh the dangers of late night internet shopping). And yes, while I could have gone with a more petite 24 qt variety, this stainless steel mamma-jamma was calling my name. It is severely impressive! A thing of...
Weekend Bites: Jazz & The Royal Brunch

Weekend Bites: Jazz & The Royal Brunch

When faced with holiday weekends we are often faced with traffic, hectic travels and not the least  bit of relaxation  intended on. Sure paddling out on the lake or taking a hike in the mountains both are perfectly amazing ways to salute the end of summer, but some times just getting there and back requires...

Coming up for air

  I’m sitting here still trying to decompress and detox from our overindulged weekend in Napa. I apologize in advance for the envy inducing food photos to follow. Now back in town, with summer quickly fading away into mucky grey skies, all I want to do is sit at a table with this fine collection...
