Blossom - A Vietnamese Restaurant in Los Angeles
When Andrew and I first met in Los Angeles, we established rather quickly that we had in common a love for Vietnamese pho soup. One of our first "pho dates" was at a Vietnamese restaurant called "Blossom" in Silverlake, but the restaurant didn't have a sign on the building. It was a mystery place you ...

Quiche on my mind...
It's spring, and my mind is set on quiche. I'm not exactly sure why -- is it the combination of the flaky puff pastry crust with the creamy filling and the salty cheese melted on top? Is it the fact that it is so easy to prepare? Or is it just because it's the perfect dish ...

Sarah Adams is an American artist living in London who focuses her work on family portrait paintings.

Dinner with Courtney from Babyccino Kids
I am going to admit straight away that I actually don't really love dinner time. In fact, I sometimes even dread it. My kids are tired, my patience is usually gone by then, and trying to keep three kids at the table until they finish their dinner is exhausting (remember this post?). I'm also not ...

Quinoa ('keen-wah')
I will confess that I’m really not a very good cook… I do try, really I do but the reality is that it just doesn’t come naturally to me. I find it tedious and stressful, not to mention expensive due to my high turnover of pots and pans and regular culinary disasters. Despite this, I ...

I discovered these great place mats a while ago and got one for my daughter, and since then I've been back to buy several more, plus some for gifts!  The kid-friendly place mats are a great activity on their own, but especially helpful during that dinner hour crunch.  Plop your kid at the table, give ...

Mmmmmont d’Or
The first time I ate it I was attending a houseparty somewhere on the Lower East Side in New York City, probably about 5 years ago. Someone ignorant (could have easily been me) had opened the circle of bark around the cheese and thus, the hotter the party seemed to get, the more the cheese ...
