     B and I know a LOT of people getting a married this year. A LOT. We have 5 weddings to attend in the last 4 months of the year! One of the most special we’ve been part of was the marriage celebration of B’s sister (my amazing sister in law) and her awesome husband. […]

Sticky Toffee Pudding is basically everything I could want in a dessert.  It has the richness of dates (good Medjool dates).  It’s moist, crumbly and great warm or cold (good for breakfast, straight out the fridge.)  As we enter into fall entertaining, this is a great make ahead dish.  To save the calories and cut […]

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 […]

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. There are some things that are just delicious or nostalgic or both that I happen to love.  Butterscotch Krimpets from Tasty Kake, street pretzels, […]

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!  […]

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 […]
