McKenna recently revealed her obsession with the breakfast burritos at CoFax Coffee.

Since then, I’ve heard about this place almost every day – it became our quest to try one.

We stopped by the small (crowded!) spot and ordered one to go…

We agree – it’s one of the best in the city.  The smokiness of the potatoes and depth of flavor in their homemade salsas bring this to another level.

Also love that it’s not monster huge.  I usually finish breakfast burritos in a food coma.


I’m a fan of the owners’ other restaurants, too – Golden State (next door) and Bludso’s.

Project Breakfast LA

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.



Baked Eggs…

…and a perfect passion fruit/pomegranate parfait.

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

Giveaway: Put a Raw Egg on It

giveaway - product review - recipe

When I visited Italy – long before T.A.D. – I discovered the secret to a really great pasta sauce: raw egg.


Davidson’s Safest Choice sent some coupons to try a dozen.  I found them at the local grocery store.


Since they’re pasteurized, I threw one in at the end of cooking a quick dinner…



…Collard Greens, TJ’s Bruschetta Sauce, and Parmesan Cheese.

Silky, creamy magic.
