Trial Run: 3D Dinosaur Cookie Cutters

September 11th, 2013 · No Comments · cooking

{click photo to see face details} My husband’s sole request for his birthday was a simple one: sugar cookies. They aren’t the prettiest looking dinosaur cookies, but I’m so excited that they were successfully assembled over the weekend so I had to share. I thought I would spice it up with some dinosaur cutouts, but […]

Birthday Barbecue

September 10th, 2011 · 1 Comment · cooking, los angeles

Spent Friday celebrating Dave’s birth into this world. We hardly ever venture down to Santa Monica Boulevard to eat so I thought it would be a nice change to venture over to Baby Blues BBQ. Their Memphis-style ribs fall right off the bone and there are plenty of sauces to choose from. Dave couldn’t get […]

Casserole Classic

August 23rd, 2011 · No Comments · cooking

Certain foods remind me of growing up. Tuna casserole was one of those dishes that seemed not that quite exciting, but now I can appreciate the value in this quick fix. My mom who works full-time as a nurse, would come home after a long day at the clinic and have to figure out what […]

Small Purple Potatoes

April 20th, 2011 · No Comments · cooking

Back in the kitchen experimenting with ingredients from the farmers market, I pulled out some small red potatoes from the fridge that looked ideal for roasting. As I sunk the knife into the first one, to my surprise, I found they were purple inside! That’ll teach me to pay more attention to the signs next […]

Triumphs and Failures in the Kitchen

April 19th, 2011 · No Comments · cooking

Do you ever just look at the cover of Real Simple and think: Hey, that’s simple! I can definitely do that. Well, I’ve learned their tips aren’t always so simple. In January, they featured “super foods” on their cover and up until now it’s been on my to do list to add some of their […]

The Barefoot Contessa

October 28th, 2010 · 1 Comment · cooking

Now that fall is here I’m ready for a new challenge and I’m looking to Ina Garten for a little inspiration. Her Hamptons-based show is so idyllic and a lot of her recipes seem very doable. Next to Giada De Laurentiis, whose cook book kept me quite busy this summer, Garten would have to be […]

Grill ‘Em All

August 30th, 2010 · 1 Comment · cooking

I recently had an epic eating experience with my foodie friend/up and coming blogger celeb in Orange County, Niyaz. Seriously, there were so many people who recognized him while we were waiting in line. (To me, he’s just the cool guy who used to sit next to me in the newsroom.) He ordered a massive […]

Filipino Foodie

August 21st, 2010 · No Comments · cooking

About a month ago I had the opportunity to volunteer/eat Filipino food fabulously paired with a variety of wine at a taste testing event organized by Six Taste, a food tour company in L.A. that takes foodies into restaurants off the beaten path. Kababayan L.A., a locally produced TV program that highlights Filipino newsmakers and […]

Toasty Treat

August 19th, 2010 · No Comments · cooking, orange county

Headed over to Cafe Lucca in Old Town Orange with a former work colleague for our usual monthly meet up this afternoon. There are so many amazing restaurants in the area that we usually rotate, but lately we’ve been dropping in to Cafe Lucca. They make great cafe lattes and iced coffee, plus the food […]

Ube Cupcakes

August 19th, 2010 · 5 Comments · cooking

I made another magical adventure into cupcake land today via the Philippines for a sweet dose ube yumminess. (I’m beginning to notice cupcakes are becoming a re-occuring theme here!) I know the tinge of purple in the cupcake is a sign of an nontraditional ingredient so I should preface this whole post by saying that […]
