Date Night at Bacari PDR

I had a romantic dinner date with my husband at Bacari PDR recently, and let me tell you, it was about time. It’s easy to get lost in the day-to-day busy-ness of life and routine food and forget about dating the man you fell in love with, not to mention the food you fell in love over. And luckily for me, both my husband and Bacari PDR are terrific and worth ... Read More »

Pressed Juicery + New Juice Book

JUI1 Greens 1 image p 43 reprinted with permission from Juice by Carly de Castro, Hedi Gores & Hayden Slater (Ten Speed Press, © 2014)

I want to admit something to you: I once owned a juicer. I spent a bunch of money on it, too. But I just wasn’t up for the cleaning and prepping of all the fruits and veggies, so I gave it away. I wanted the juice, just not the juicer. Thank goodness, then, for Pressed Juicery: they do the juicing (and cleaning) and I just get to do the drinking. ... Read More »

Del Real Foods Review and Giveaway

sauteed-kale-pupusa-del-real-foods

Coming up with dinner to feed to my two boys night after night is the bane of my motherly existence. Especially when we have other kids over. They all ask for dinner like they’ve  arrived at the world’s most boring restaurant – plain pasta, bean burrito without cheese, meat or spices, and white rice. Lately, if I cook an elaborate dinner, they won’t eat it. But they all do love good ... Read More »

Dating My Husband While Exploring Los Angeles – Part 2

La-Poubelle

This is Part 2 of “Dating my Husband.” Part 1 appeared last Tuesday. My husband and I were at the halfway point of #DateWeek2014, the week when my two boys went to their grandparents, and we could do whatever we wanted. We love food and exploring Los Angeles, but don’t have a regular babysitter so we used that week to try as many new restaurants as possible. In last week’s post, I talked ... Read More »
