It’s been a pretty cool week, my friends! We completed our first photo shoot for Clabber Girl, Dave found a white wine that doesn’t give him a hangover, and I baked these Banana Chocolate Chip Cupcakes. Hooray! Read More…
My, my, my…I can’t believe summer is already here. It kind of snuck up on me. I swear I just spent 48 hours cramming for my last two finals(crushed them, by the way) and was looking forward to chillin’ Read More…
As of one week ago, it’s been 365 days of culinary adventures, gorgeous photography, and studio abandonment. There have been bouts of great food, failed recipes, a trip to Dumbass Starbucks, plus a good old fashioned perfect baked potato.

Baked Maple Bacon Donuts! These are the donuts people have been talking about for ages. In fact, a buddy of mine asked me to join her at the Glazed Donut Cafe here in L.A..

Vegan Chocolate Avocado Truffles!
The thought of it had my brain twisted. If somebody told me two weeks ago that melted chocolate plus whipped avocado equals a wonderfully creamy dessert, I would’ve laughed in their face. Ok, maybe not “in their face”, but as soon as they turned their back to me…
