art/crafts - brunch - food events

Such a thrill to sit my bum at this beautiful table yesterday next to a bunch of my favorite LA bloggers…

…thanks to the brilliance of our talented hosts, Jami Curl, Boo Simms, and Sarah Simms Hendrix.

None of the bubbly stuff for me…

…but I did enjoy the most epic hot chocolate (made from Quin Marshmallows) while we got crafty.

After working on our holiday projects, we gathered to eat.

Sarah’s breakfast skills are no joke.  I’m hoping she’ll post these recipes on her blog soon!

From the mini toast to the brilliant salads…

…every single thing was scrumptious.  Especially this bacon, glazed with Quin’s Maple and Black Pepper Caramel.

Praying for more Project Breakfasts – a most uplifting way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

Binge Watch/Mindfully Munch: Transparent

TV shows

As a former Binge Eater, Binge Watching TV has been a terrific way to scratch my addictive itch. I’ve already blogged about Breaking Bad and The Sopranos in the past, now I’ll be sharing some more recent shows I’ve been hooked on, and the snacks you’ll want to have on hand.

Transparent is an Amazon Prime series created and directed by Jill Solloway.  You may remember I freaked out over her film Afternoon Delight, and I’m pretty bonkers about this show, too.

Transparent takes place in Los Angeles, and I’m always tickled whenever they mention dishes from places I’m familiar with – Mozza’s Butterscotch Budino, a chopped wedge salad from The Warehouse, Zankou Chicken’s Garlic Sauce…

…and look – they’re eating melon!

P.S. – Have plenty of cereal and mustard on hand.

Blaze Pizza

restaurant

During the Holiday madness that is The Grove/Farmer’s Market, I’ve found a good place to grab dinner to go, and eat in my jammies at home.

Blaze Pizza is similar to 800 Degrees – or, so I’ve heard, since I haven’t been there.  So I’ll say it’s reminiscent of Chipotle, or ShopHouse.  But for pizza – where you choose your crust…

…toppings…

…and wait for it to be fired up…

…and taken home.

A surprisingly good concept by the Wetzels Pretzels founders – I hear my friend Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son has something to do with it, too.
