Cereal – LA

Now that you know my secret love of (some) processed foods, I have no qualms with telling you about my cereal problem.  I could eat it for breakfast and dinner.  I gave it up for Lent one year (40 very sad, dark days).  I had no idea what to eat in the morning, but it […]

So maybe you just had a baby. (That narrows it down to a few of you). And maybe you also just moved to a completely new state. (I think that narrows it down to one that I know of). A certain special someone just had a ginormous life shift in the past few months, and […]

Spanish – LA

I’m not supposed to like processed foods.  I should tell you that I only shop at farmers markets, create all my snacks from scratch and have never eaten a hot dog.

I have a sweet-spot for all things Spanish for three reasons: 1. My cousin and I traveled to Barcelona together while I was in college and it was one of the most fun and memorable trips of my life — it also was the trip where we went from cousins to the best of friends […]

I have a confession – I took a recipe idea from Gwyneth Paltrow. I know. I tried to find creativity from the woman who named her daughter “Apple”. But B & I experienced a Goop-epiphany last weekend when we had dinner with some old friends. And not just any friends. These are some of our […]

Dark Chocolate & Mint – LA

I bought the most delicious chocolate spearmint from the Santa Monica farmers market.  Yes, that’s right.  There’s a chocolatey spearmint that you can grow in your garden.  It’s like a thin-mint in plant form.  This recipe marries together my favorite ice cream recipe with a silky, chocolate pudding.  It tastes super sinful, but guess what!  […]

Corn – NYC

Christina Tosi is my constant source of baking inspiration. Her ability to fuse nostalgic tastes with untraditional ingredients to create desserts that are completely brand new is both impressive and admirable. Over Christmas, I attempted her corn cookies to much success. Because after my CT experiment, I had left over corn powder – alot of it. […]

While living in Boston, I was lucky enough to discover Flour, an incredible bakery in the South End.  Totally worth the hype.  World-famous banana bread.  Unreal sticky buns.  I’ve always coveted the cookbook, and I was lucky enough to receive it as a gift. I was immediately attracted to their corn muffin recipe.  They’re not […]
