Just a giant stack of fajitas from my favorite Mexican restaurant in LA. Major nostalgia up in here!
Hi friends! Can you even believe it’s June? I know it’s one-third of the way through June, but still – I can’t really wrap my mind around it. We spent a completely wonderful and life-affirming weekend in LA visiting family and friends last weekend, and it was just the best…and this week, one of my best friends Kate is coming to visit from Chicago! I’m feeling like a very lucky (and busy) gal. So because I haven’t eaten enough this week (major sarcasm), let’s look at more pictures of food! It’s how I roll, people. Here are this week’s Foodie Favorites!
I’m loving the creativity of this tahini ice cream with honey caramel. Tahini is such a fantastic and under-utilized ingredient – I love seeing it in the spotlight here!
Is this nutella crunch cake for real?! I’m seriously drooling!
Just casually sippin’ one of my favorite beers outside on a hot and sunny day. Why did I ever leave California again?!
Hey everyone! How’s your week going? This has been a rather hectic week for us…since last Wednesday, we’ve had our furniture delivered (semi-seamlessly), cleaned and assembled the entire apartment, and done more physical box-lifting activity than I’d like to do in my entire life. (Seriously – Never. Moving. Ever. Again.) I also started my new job and we’ve had Brad’s mom staying with us, so it’s been very busy but very fun! Better to be busy than bored, right?! Anyways, here are this week’s Foodie Favorites!
Quick Berkeley faves so far – we’ve been doing a lot of eating at home, but we did go out to Eureka and Jupiter. Both had seriously awesome beer menus and excellent food, so I’m loving what I’m seeing so far! At Eureka, I got one of the best burgers I’ve ever had in my life – I won’t tell you what it is, because I have on my to-do list to re-create for the blog, but I will say you should get excited! (Hint: there will be bacon.)
So I’d like to introduce you to this here thing called chia seed pudding.
Well, chances are you’ve already heard of chia seed pudding. It’s been making rounds around the internet for a few years now. But like with all healthy food trends, I can be a little skeptical and a little late to the game. I’m always like, “IT CAN’T BE AS GOOD” and immediately dismiss said healthy food craze as a lame version of the real thing. But after baking up this incredible vegan zucchini bread earlier this summer, I decided I needed to start being a little more open-minded. (A little. I still draw the line at substituting spaghetti squash for pasta, though.)
