Champagne Truffle

If you would have asked me a few years ago I would have never refused a glass of Champagne, but now I don’t drink as much as I use to, so enjoying one of this chocolate masterpiece after dinner it gives me a great pleasure with zero hangover. Butter and Champagne are the basics of […]

Hummus with a twist

Hummus has really old origins, it’s known all around the world and mostly used in the Middle Eastern and all the Mediterranean areas. Hummus is traditionally made with garbanzo beans and is very tasty, especially if it’s home made, it makes a great dip and a side for many dishes. Hummus with a twist is […]

Pineapple Guacamole

Here in SoCal there is never a wrong season for guacamole, but the end of spring is my favorite time because you can find the best avocados. One of our local customer, Randy, live in a nice house in one of the Santa Monica Canyon, he has a beautiful avocado tree in the garden and […]

Pink Grapefruit

Which one is the fruit that is sweet and sour at the same time? The Pink Grapefruit is the perfect bland, a semi-sweet fruit with a delightful smell. On a very hot day there is nothing better then a fresh squeezed juice of grapefruit. I like to add a little bit of honey to the […]

Salami Sandwich with Iced Tea

This picture brings back a lot of memories of my childhood.

I’m sure that somebody who know me well enough […]

At the end of March I attended an interesting and fun workshop hosted by Christina Peters and Denise Vivaldo – this was my introduction to food styling and honestly, it’s a whole new adventure. Preparing the perfect dish for the camera is a job that requires […]

Purple Cauliflower

Purple Cauliflower

The purple cauliflower is really something I would like to keep as a decoration on my dining table, it makes a beautiful and unusual flower centerpiece. Growing up I always refused to eat cauliflowers because of the bad smell that they live in the kitchen when you cook them; only when I was diagnosed with […]

Asparagus Frittata

Asparagus Frittata, a long lasting Easter tradition for my family – and many others. When I was a little girl we use to go pick up asparagus in the woods. In spring they grow everywhere and my dad was able to spot them on the side of the street while he was driving. The asparagus […]

Beets Salad

What a vegetable! Their stronger characteristics are: intense colors and hearty flavor. I cook them in two ways; boiling or baking – both simple and with great result. Beets are an awesome vegetable for Southern California; if you live in a place where the weather is always warm then you need to come up with […]
