I have the perfect Valentine’s Day present for you.

Breakfast in bed!! And not just any breakfast in bed. A hot-pink-donut-with-sprinkles kind of breakfast in bed. Which is the best kind, obviously.

Valentine’s Day is on a Sunday this year, which is just begging for a special themed breakfast for you and your favorite human(s). There’s something so special and decadent about breakfast in bed – in my opinion, it’s pretty much the most romantic thing you can do for someone. Waking up to a mug of coffee and a homemade breakfast, and not even having to put on real pants to get it?! Heaven, people.

Restaurant Reviews: Best of Seattle

restaurant reviews: best of seattle // my bacon-wrapped life

The incredible “scout mint” ice cream at Molly Moon’s!

This weekend, I took a quick trip to Seattle to visit my best friend Emily – and eat my weight in delicious things to report back to you all, of course. I’m so excited to share my favorite eats in Seattle with you guys – well, my favorite eats I could pack into 48 hours, at least!

Seattle is a very cool city – it reminds me of LA in that it feels very urban, but also spread out and spacious at the same time. It’s filled with fun neighborhoods that each have their own vibe to them, and there are parks and open green spaces, bike trails along the water, and all kinds of nature everywhere. Plus, the emphasis on locally grown, healthy sustainable food is found everywhere you look and is incredibly admirable – the excitement around Pacific Northwest food culture in Seattle is totally infectious. Emily and I ate a lot this weekend, and she was the best kind of tour guide (food-focused, that is). Here are some of my favorite things we ate!

One of (many, many) beer tastings at the San Francisco Craft Beer Week opening night gala! Total beer-gal heaven.

Hey guys! How’s your week going? I am heading to Seattle this weekend to visit my best friend Emily, and I could not be more excited! We have been doing lots of food planning, so stay tuned for an update on Seattle faves next week. I hope you have a fun winter weekend getaway to look forward to, too (even if it’s not exactly to somewhere warm and tropical, like me). Here are this week’s Foodie Favorites!

Cheesy sausage pizza bread just might be making an appearance on Super Bowl Sunday. This looks like heaven!!

These chai cupcakes with brown butter icing just might make a cupcake lover out of me. My two favorite flavors of late!!

It’s getting near the end of January, and you know what that means…SUPER BOWL time!!

I know I’m a few weeks early, but I wanted to give you guys time to make room in your Super Bowl spread (you have one of those, right?) for this incredibly awesome dip! I first made this Greek yogurt spinach and artichoke dip a few weeks ago when Brad’s sister and her boyfriend came over to watch the Steelers play in the first round of NFL playoffs, when Steelers Super Bowl dreams were still a glimmer in our eyes (sob!). Everyone loved it, and I knew this would be the perfect Super Bowl treat to share with you guys this year.
