British – LA

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 […]

Cereal – LA

July 16, 2013

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 […]

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

Spanish – NYC

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 […]

Dark Chocolate & Mint – LA

July 3, 2013

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 – LA

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 […]

Chocolate? Meet balsamic – NYC

This very special post goes out to a blogger who very kindly featured Haley & my lil’ labor of love on her own wonderful food blog, Foods for the Soul. In a small token of thanks, we wanted to feature her awesomeness by doing a post on a food combination she did well: chocolate and […]

Chocolate? Meet Balsamic – LA

We recently learned that a wonderful blog, Foods for the Soul, was inspired by us.  Little old Bakers, Bicoastal.  We were so touched that we wanted to write a post in her honor featuring a lovely combination–chocolate and balsamic vinegar.  Check out her Salted Balsamic Chocolate Cookies.  Fabulous, right? In the same vein, I want […]

Nuts – LA

It’s usually hard to get in the holiday spirit in lala land.  Lately, it’s been chilly, rainy and downright gloomy, and I’m loving it.  I’m pretending it’s winter in a place that rarely slips below 50 degrees, even at night. A nontraditional, yet spectacular Thanksgiving spent in Joshua tree helped to set the mood with […]

Rhubarb – NYC

July 12, 2012

Nothing washes down a big meal better (besides a great bottle of summer vino) than some baked concoction of summer fruit. Believe it or not but before today I hadn’t actually baked with rhubarb before. Its a celery looking fruit that is one of those fruits and veggies that falls into the category of “………but […]
