Listen, Watch, Read #10

I chopped off all my hair last night, just about 10 inches of it. With a pair of dull scissors and my horrified housemates staring at me. Just kidding, it wasn’t nearly as dramatic, but there were quite a few snaps and lots of sweeping to do. There is something freeing about chopping off your hair, especially doing it yourself. I know in most media … Continue reading Listen, Watch, Read #10

Croatia – Dubrovnik

I’ve just gotten back from an absolutely life changing vacation and was immediately struck down by three trials and a sinus infection, tots hot I know. I’m currently healing in bed, which provided a perfect opportunity to edit photos and school you on the best trip ever. I’m starting with Dubrovnik, which big surprise is where we started. It’s gained immense popularity since Game of … Continue reading Croatia – Dubrovnik

Listen: Britney v. Ingrid

My friends often joke that my musical taste is, for lack of a better word, schizophrenic. I often switch between Pavarotti and DJ Khaled, Fleetwood Mac and Lil Wayne and today, between Britney Spears and Ingrid Michaelson.   Both women I’ve seen live and was definitely not disappointed. In fact, Britney’s Circus show was the most expensive concert ticket I’ve ever bought. And Ingrid’s was … Continue reading Listen: Britney v. Ingrid

  I’m busy preparing for my first ever pop-up dinner, which is happening tomorrow night! Follow along at IG: notes_nibbles for live updates. My schedule is intense today, along with a deposition, a networking lunch and the farmers market.

Hello my darlings – As you all probably know, I love feeding people. And perhaps more than that, I love hosting the sh*t out of my dinners: creating a comfortable space where my friends can meet new people, trying new things, and then give me all the compliments.  And if we’ve talked in the last couple of months, you also probably know that I’m exploring … Continue reading ANNOUNCING NOTES AND NIBBLES, A POP UP DINNER SERIES

Copycat Pastrami Tacos with Gruyere

Adele. Literally a magical being among us mundane humans. I saw her at the Staples Center last week and as always, left inspired, in awe and emotionally depleted from singing my lungs out.   Before the epic, totally-worth-the-$150-per-ticket show, we hit up on my favorite restaurants in DTLA, The Stocking Frame. I’ll probably do a review of it at some point, but it suffices to … Continue reading Copycat Pastrami Tacos with Gruyere

Swedish Meatballs

Ikea meatballs are apparently a thing. I’ve never had one, but their reputation is legendary. So of course, I had to make Swedish Meatballs, because obviously I can do them better than a massive corporation known for their do-it-yourself mission. (BTW, I’ve tried numerous times to DIY Ikea furniture… and always failed.) I am happy to report that I did not fail at my Swedish … Continue reading Swedish Meatballs

Pecan Brown Sugar Sticky Buns

Because you always need dessert. And because I made too much pizza dough and it certainly couldn’t go to waste. I used to hate cinnamon rolls. The overly gooey, sweet sludge just didn’t do it for me. Now however, I’ve been busy perfecting a flaky roll, soft and warm, with a warming, lightly spiced, inner layer, with a bit of crunch from the nuts. Pass … Continue reading Pecan Brown Sugar Sticky Buns
