In the Kitchen {“Ice Cream” Breakfast Parfait}


I am really loving experimenting with different fun breakfast ideas recently. Buckwheat Groats are my new favorite ingredient as they add great texture, are gluten free for those that are intolerant, and far surpass other grains in healthful properties and protein. Win win win! Making “ice cream” (basically blending up some frozen bananas with your choice of add ins) for breakfast will go over well in your household, I promise. Here is my latest recipe of choice. Raspberry, Chocolate Ice Cream Breakfast Parfait. Enjoy!

Friday Fun {Tufts + Ombre Oceans}


For today’s Friday Fun post, the inspiration to-go photo is a vintage tufted chair that is in our bar area at my home. Something about the fabric and the vintage beauty that I just love. This photo of the ocean seems to have the most incredible ombre colors. And I am dying to try this raw carrot cake recipe. It looks so moist and delicious!! Have a great weekend!


A new Way to Eat {Ferry Building Style}


It is not a secret I am a HUGE fan of the Ferry Building in SF. It just really encompasses everything I love about food. From local, and sustainable, to delicious and offering a wide variety of options, I LOVE. The coolest things about this is that it has inspired spots in Southern California to do the same thing…Right in my own back yard!! So what is Ferry Building Style eating you say? Here are some criteria:


First up we have The OC Mix in Costa Mesa. Fabulous outdoor eating areas, a variety of food as well as gift shops. A beautiful spot.

Next up, The Packing House in Anaheim. Recently opened this new hotspot has everything from a Popsicle bar, to a Grilled Cheese bar. Count me in!ferry-bldg-style-eating4

Lastly we have Grand Central Market in downtown LA. This is not a new spot at all, however since it’s recent renovations, it has been receiving a lot of attention including one of Bon Appetit magazine’s Hot New Restaurants in America. Really loving that this style of eating/shopping is spreading. You can truly make a day of it!
