Mowielicious Last year I was approached by The Bread Factory to shoot images for their new website, and then earlier this year I was asked to shoot their whole brochure for a new catalogue they're working on. This was a dream shoot, at least for me, mainly because it was all about bread, cakes and pastries - huge boxes were delivered every day, filled with the freshest, yummiest bread & pastries you can possibly imagine - ciabattas, sourdoughs, focaccias, croissants, meringues, etc., and by the end of the shoot, the boxes were piled high up from the floor to the ceiling. Their actual website update hasn't gone live yet, but I've been given permission to use them here as I couldn't wait to share them with you - enjoy! Mowielicious
What would Martha do? What would Martha do? You may have noticed a lack of recipes on the blog recently. To be honest I've not really felt much like cooking much for these past few months. I'm not really sure why, usually I want to cook everything, all the time (make ALL the recipes!)
raspberri cupcakes It's been an incredibly busy week. Busy, but also fun and full of family and celebration so I'm definitely not complaining. Last Sunday was my gorgeous niece's first birthday and I was tasked with creating her very first birthday cake for the big party, along with a few other sweet treats. I ended up baking for pretty much two straight days before the party, so please excuse the slightly blurry photos as I took them in a rush when I finally finished all the baking. As I mentioned on Instagram, my niece loves owls.

For this month's SRC, I was assigned to Angela's blog, Spinach Tiger. Her blog is simply gorgeous. It's like looking at a cookbook in a bookstore, even better because many of the recipes are her own special creations, so it's really her own unique cookbook. And, unlike other cookbooks you find where the recipes look good but are practically impossible to follow, have no fear, Angela's recipes are all super easy and anyone can make them. Did I mention she has her own cooking channel too? SWEET AS SUGAR COOKIES SWEET AS SUGAR COOKIES
A Thought For Food — where ideas are brought to simmer A Thought For Food — where ideas are brought to simmer You might be a bit confused. No, I don’t celebrate Christmas. I don’t really celebrate anything.

Eat more cheesecake. Yep, I think it's the perfect New Year's resolution. {It sure sounds more fun than "eat more greens."} I've had this recipe in my repertoire before I even had a repertoire. Actually, I'm not sure I have one now. Bake at 350

I spent this past weekend in one of my favorite cities, Palm Springs. It’s about an hour and half-long drive east of Los Angeles, making it the most perfect weekend getaway to Angelenos. I really really love it out there, even in the summers when the temperatures soar above a hundred. A Cozy Kitchen

smitten kitchen Thursday, January 16, 2014 pear and hazelnut muffins We all know that muffins teeter precariously on a razor-thin line that divides the food categories of “Acceptable for Breakfast” and “Nope, This Is Dessert” and one must maintain firm boundaries during the breakfast hours lest the day that follows devolve into a full-on bacchanal of Resolution decompensation that ends with one passed out amid scatters of Cheetos, ketchup packets and French fry grease with a side of cronut. Thus, when I come upon a new muffin recipe — or in this case, when my son is told to pick a recipe for us to make from a new book, and he predictably chooses the thing that most resembles cake — I immediately assess the list of ingredients and label them accordingly:

17 and Baking Bad They call it cooking meth, but really, it’s a lot more like baking. My dad’s a cook. He’s the kind of person who makes Indian food without a recipe, who can guess every ingredient in a sauce from one taste. The kind of person who opens the fridge, laughs a deep belly laugh, and assures you “there’s a meal in there somewhere.”

Welcome to Eat Live Run

This is just the sort of thing I love to bake. Fast. Easy. Simple yet insanely delicious. Would you judge me if I told you I ate the entire thing by myself in 24 hours?
Broiled Lamb Chops with Nigella’s Mint Sauce Nigella Lawson’s mint sauce first appeared on our Easter table in 2003, the same year the Easter Egg Nest Cake made its debut, both recipes having appeared in the New York Times earlier that week. Unlike the Easter Egg Nest cake, which we loved — really, we did — the mint sauce returned to the table every following Easter, the fresh combination of mint and parsley, olive oil and vinegar, capers and cornichons the perfect accompaniment to lamb no matter the preparation — roasted racks, braised shanks, broiled meatballs, pan-seared chops.

I'll Have What She's Having I have so much to be thankful for. I was born in a time and place that allows me opportunities other women can only dream of. While giving me everything they can, my parents raised me to be independent and to believe that I am capable.
