Time for another video! If you’re reading this in email or RSS, please click through to view it! If there is one dessert that I make when I need or want something from my boyfriend it's probably a chocolate molten cake.  There is something about the decadent nature of this dessert that causes the recipient [...]

Gingerbread Beach Babes

December 24th, 2006 · 8 Comments

I've written in the past about strong food-associated memories and none are as strong for me as those that surround family holidays – especially Christmas.  The mere smell of clementines remind me of Christmas time along with the smell of cloves and cinnamon.  Since Kareem and I usually head home for the holidays I've tried [...]

Turnover a New Recipe

November 14th, 2006 · 6 Comments

I've been reading a lot of food lit lately, I wonder if there's a term for that genre yet?  My current read is Ruth Reichl's 'Tender at the Bone.'   I'm only on page 84 but can reliably say I'll be reading her next two books as well.  I find myself laughing out loud and [...]

The Santa Monica Farmer’s market that takes place on Wednesdays and Saturdays is the highlight of my week. Each visit brings inspiration and renewed energy to my love of food and cooking. There are always new vegetable varieties, fruits, honeys, nuts, and olives to be discovered. I found this week to be an exceptionally great [...]

A Pavlovian Treat

May 12th, 2006 · 8 Comments

One of the main trends that I notice about my cooking is that I gravitate towards simple, easy, low maintenance dishes. Every now and then, however, I like to fiddle around in the kitchen and today I did just that. I’d seen many food challenges on the Food Network and I’d watched enough shows depicting [...]

Spring Fling

April 15th, 2006 · 5 Comments

Even though I now live in California where fresh fruits and vegetables are in abundance all year-round, I still associate certain foods with their respective seasons. Strawberries for me are decidely Spring. When I see strawberries at the store (for a reasonable price) I know that Summer will be just around the corner. When I [...]
