Aren’t these candied citrus peels pretty? They are also easy to make! I was fighting a cold a few weeks ago so made some juice at home with oranges, lemon and grapefruit I figured I could put those peels to good use and made some of candied gifts. I actually made these twice the first time I used coconut sugar instead of cane sugar which I don’t recommend. Since the coconut sugar is a brown tone they end

These nuts are so addicting I had to make a second batch since I ate most of the first ones! This is a great simple snack anyone will enjoy. You can use any type of nuts you have or buy an assortment from the store in bulk. I packed these up in these coffee bags and used mini clothes pins with tied ribbon to hang the label. For these label I just printed them on card stock and
What are your favorite holiday memories? This is one of the first years that I will be in California for Christmas. It’s my typical tradition to pack my bags and jet off somewhere but this year plans turned out a little differently and I am staying put. While I love traveling it will be a nice change of pace to be home, though I might sneak away on a short road trip somewhere. This coconut almond granola could
I can’t believe it’s already almost middle of December. Something about living in Los Angeles and 70º weather makes me feel otherwise, but I’m am prepping myself up for my sisters visit and celebrating the remainder of the year. Looking forward to the next few weeks here and a little decompressing. In the holiday spirit I’ve been making lots of edible gifts to giveaway. Today I’m sharing some peanut butter oatmeal cookies – these are gluten free too!
Earlier this fall I took a little road trip along the coast – we drove up to Big Sur and worked our way down the coastline – San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Malibu. It was my second time in Big Sur but my first time driving along the coast. The road trip was magical – I highly recommend everyone take a week off and explore. Our trip from Big Sur back home was about five days which
When people ask me what is my favorite things to eat, the answer is easy – anything Asian with soup, “Soupy Asian things” as I like to refer. I could have Asian soup anytime of the year but there is definitely no better time than now to have some. It’s been a wet few days here in So-Cal and ramen is the perfect answer in this weather. I typically always stray away from making anything Asian at home.
Commissary is one of LA’s newest hot spots. It’s housed in a green house on the roof top of the Line Hotel. They focus on fruits and vegetables but they also have meats as well! Their menu is all in pictures – which could be either fun for some who love a little mystery or not so fun for others. Sometimes I get overwhelmed by menu’s – there is either way to many options or so many descriptions
I’ve been dreaming of the day when I have my very own house to call my own that I can decorate and design as I please. Until that day comes, I’ll be taking notes and pinning away on my Pinterest boards. When Lincoln invited me to check out their Black Label Home in LA inspired by their new Black Label collection, of course I said yes! Lincoln Black Label is a unique luxury ownership experience centered around four
10 days away from Thanksgiving! This year will one of be one of the first times in a while that I’ll be in California for Thanksgiving (and maybe even Christmas). I’m typically traveling somewhere. I’m excited and looking forward to spending thanksgiving at home this year. I think these parmesan thyme potato stacks are the bomb! They are flaky and crispy and just plain perfect. Not only do they taste delicious they look awesome too. They are easy
