Binge Watch/Mindfully Munch: Master of None
Master of None

I had the pleasure of meeting Aziz Ansari once, when I first started blogging six years ago at a food event, Plate by Plate.  He is a fellow food lover, and I was definitely paying attention to all the delicious details while devouring his new show Master of None (all 10 episodes) in 1 week. Here’s the menu you should plan whileContinue Reading

M Cafe: 10 Years of Kale-ing It
Vegan Cupcakes

This place needs no introduction – though you may not recognize it… …a little makeover for M Cafe! When we first moved to Los Angeles a decade ago, they had recently opened. *SNIFF* We have grown up together. Along with the change in decor are a couple updated menu items… …we sampled some classics… …and new things, too. Spicy KimchiContinue Reading

I’m Dreaming of a White Thanksgiving
Food Coma Pumpkin Pie

Happy Day After Thanksgiving! Here’s a little recap – we got up early to meet Sam/John at Proof Bakery + pick up a pre-ordered Pumpkin Pie (by Roxana/Na Young!).  FYI the one above was made by Joy in a private class. Some breakfast was consumed by Abe + John.  They were men in beards eating quiche (a new podcast, coming soon).Continue Reading

Vegan Thanksgiving

Abe and I are spending Thanksgiving this year in Los Angeles, with our friends Joy and Corey.  But I already had another Friendsgiving over the weekend… …an entirely vegan one, hosted by Leslie Durso. I didn’t photograph HALF the stuff she made – the menu (<—click to view Leslie’s post)  was massive. But I did make a video about this action…Continue Reading

News, Links, and a Giveaway
Call of Duty Cake

Been busy lately doing food-related stuff… …plus a lot of acting-related work, too.  If you follow me on Snapchat, you know I’ve been busy auditioning because I keep taking photos of my feet in waiting rooms.  We recently attended the Call of Duty Holiday Party – finally got the game but our thumbs are not good enough to beat my levelContinue Reading

Blue Jean Baby
Blue Jean Outfit

I’ve got an article up on SheKnows talking about this jean jacket… …it’s about letting go of the crappy items in your wardrobe and replacing them with things you truly love. I didn’t mention that these are Starkist SWAG Sunglasses (yes, as in the tuna fish) and I have no intention of parting with them. I also mention this turtleneck sweater, which I’ve beenContinue Reading

Ladies Night: Cookies and Cocktails
Cookies and Cocktails

This is Courtney Cowan, the founder of Milk Jar Cookies. I hail her Los Angeles’ “Cookie Queen.”  Seriously, my favorite.  She shared some easy baking tips with me in this 1-minute video… …and hosted a rockin Ladies Night (along with Soda Pop PR) – featuring her sugar babies… …an Affogato Bar (with Fosselman’s Ice Cream)… …and drinks (Le Grand CourtageContinue Reading

Weekend Brunch: The Oinkster
Oinkster Brunch

We are at The Oinkster a lot.  In fact, we went twice last weekend – once for dinner on Friday night, and the next morning to try their newly-launched brunch. As expected, they killed it with this Breakfast Sandwich – an over easy organic egg, cheese sauce, sauteed spinach… …it usually comes with choice of bacon/sausage but Abe left it off.  AlsoContinue Reading
