blistered shishito peppers with toasted sesame seeds

September 27, 2016

You know what I’ve been addicted to lately? Shishito peppers. Blistered shishito peppers started popping up on menus all around LA about a couple of summers ago, and for good reason! These peppers are a highly addictive picky bit to start off any meal. They’re bright green and fairly mellow, except for the occasional spicy one that packs a punch- so it’s fun eating them too, cause you never know if you’ll get one spicy guy out of the bunch!

After a fun-filled weekend, Mondays can be difficult to face head on. We’ve all been there; the Sunday scaries lead to an alarm going off on Monday morning and you having an attitude that’s just a bit more negative than it was a day or two ago.

We can beat those Monday blues! It’s about discovering some products and creating some rituals that will get you excited for everyday, no matter its title.

dinner with tequila herradura at STK

September 15, 2016

Can we talk about my love of succulents and copper?? They’re two things I absolutely go nuts over when it comes to decor. When Herradura Tequila asked Caroline from Love & Loathing LA¬†and I to co-host a dinner, we were immediately on the same page about decor. We’re both nerds for creating the perfect dinner aesthetic, and we spent the morning perusing the Downtown Los Angeles flower mart for delicious succulents and copper vases. Sadly, we didn’t find the kind of copper we were looking for, so we took matters into our own hands- and got crafty with spray paint. That is one of my favorite things whenever I’m designing a dinner party: I love dreaming up a vision, and then adding in elements of spontaneity whenever my original vision isn’t readily available.

women & whiskies at ocean prime

September 9, 2016

Oysters and whiskey? That is my love language. A few weeks back, I hosted a Women & Whiskies event at Ocean Prime, complete with oysters, tartare tacos, deviled eggs, and of course, cocktails. There is nothing I love more than bringing amazing women together to connect. Women & Whiskies does just that, and gathers women over what is historically seen as a “man’s drink.” This year, I have gotten to partner with them to curate some fantastic whiskey events around LA. When Ocean Prime offered to host a group of us and spoil us with their delicious bites, I knew it was the perfect combo.

eggplant tacos

September 8, 2016

Some meals call for something simple and delicious- a dish that won’t take any time at all to whip up, but will feel more elevated and complete than something like a salad. My go-to in times like these are tacos. LA is a hub for all things Mexican and it’s taught me well!
