It’s almost as if I never got back on track after vacation…even though it’s over […]

The holidays are upon us! I don’t know about you, but every store I’ve been in recently (CVS, Home Goods…) already has Christmas decorations out. I thought that always started after Halloween, no? Since I am trying to keep up, I started testing a few new holiday recipes last weekend. You’re going to LOVE these Baked Brie Crostini with Spiced Raisin Compote. They’re the perfect little hors d’oeurve for a holiday […]

Oh mannnnnnn where has this month gone? October has been so busy for me. – We’ve had a ton of visitors – We had an ant infestation in our apartment (don’t even get me started on this one…) – I’ve been working a lot – I had an eye infection + Travis was really sick. Bleh! – And it’s been ridiculously hot in Los Angeles. Travis and I both feel […]

Going to be 100% real right now. I make and photograph a lot of recipes that don’t make it to the blog. Why? Because not everything comes out as delicious and beautiful as I would hope. I sometimes spend hours cooking and photographing food that ends up tasting bland or frankly, disgusting. Thank goodness for my trusty taste-tester, Travis, who can be honest with me about whether or not a recipe is blog-worthy. I thought […]

Perfect Roast Chicken with Grapes and Red Wine Pan Gravy ll

Hi friends! Are you ready for a crazy delicious recipe this morning? This Roast Chicken recipe is PERFECT. Hearty, delicious and healthy. For me, a roast chicken is the epitome of fall comfort food. I love throwing a whole bird into the oven on a Sunday evening when I have a bit more time to cook. Since there are only two of us, there are always leftovers, but Travis and I […]

Fall is upon us people! It’s really hard to believe because the temperatures are still in the upper 80’s in Los Angeles. Don’t get me wrong, I love the summer, but I am itching for the temps to cool down a bit. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I haven’t been cooking as much recently. It’s just been too darn hot in our apartment to even […]
