Today my menu is Mickey Mouse and Star Wars themed because my sister is visiting and we are doing an extensive and elaborate girls day at Disneyland, but more on that later. As is probably pretty clear, I love food. I love making it myself and I love when […]
Dear Nachos, How can you possibly be so delicious? Sure, I get it, you’re covered in cheese but lots of things are covered in cheese and (while I do love a good cheese-smothered-dish) it’s just somehow not the same. Please don’t ever change. Or do, but only in delicious and […]
To me Black Friday is a day for taking it easy. I’m so over the over-consumerism. I love seeing companies like REI closing their doors on Black Friday and shaking up the cycle a bit. I’m staying in and eating some breakfast bread pudding. If you’re interested the full […]
Happy Thanksgiving, friends! I’m making stuffing today and heading over to Jennie’s for the traditional Garlic, My Soul Thanksgiving, this year in her new kitchen! In honor of GMS friends, here is a throwback to my very first post for GMS. Ana taught me how to make her signature […]
Looking for another easy dessert to take a place next to the pumpkin and pecan pies? Here is a holiday dessert that can’t go wrong. I learned how to make Scotcheroos when I worked in my bakery job and quickly fell in love with them. Life hint: goes perfectly […]
I’m going through my food hall of fame this week. This was one of my favorite recipes I contributed to Garlic, My Soul: Maple Bacon Granola. It’s as delicious an invention as it sounds. With Thanksgiving only days away, why not make yourself a perfect and hearty breakfast […]
Here’s another food-love throwback to my Cucumber Margarita Popsicles. I know it’s officially fall and all (look, I’m as happy as anyone) but here in LA we’re still having random spikes of heat during the day, although it’s pretty chilly as I type this now. Anyway, who ever said […]
I’m always up for a pinwheel. I made these last year for Garlic, My Soul in remembrance of all the wonderful pinwheels I enjoyed in the 90s and then again in my baking job in Colorado. They never get old. Happy Wednesday! Photo cred and full post over at […]
I’m officially back to work today. After months of traveling, freelancing and general gallivanting I’m back with a wonderful company and back into the flow of “normal” life. So I made these for myself to celebrate. This was such a great trick I discovered: pizza toppings on portobello mushrooms. […]
Everybody needs a mozzarella stick now and then (read, “I need mozzarella sticks all the time”). Here is my gluten-free recipe for those of us who can’t digest that fine flour, wheat. Full post here. Photo cred, Garlic, My Soul.
Here is my love letter to late-risers, like myself. Pop a minute muffin in the microwave as you’re walking out the door and it’s ready by the time you have your purse, coffee and keys in hand. Full post here. Photo cred: Garlic, My Soul.
I’ve worked in professional kitchens and Los Angeles food trucks but nothing is more fun than cooking with the ladies of Garlic, My Soul on a hot Los Angeles afternoon. Here’s a link to the Arugula Pesto Bruschetta I made for them after seeing the movie Trip to Italy wishing […]
