BLEND Holiday Volume 1 is Here! {E-Book Launch + Giveaway}

Holiday Volume 1 Cover

The holidays are without a doubt my favorite time of year. Everything about this season feels magical…fall foliage (back home, anyway! There aren’t too many leaves changing colors here in Kuwait, lol), fuzzy blankets, cozy comfort foods for dinner, shopping for Christmas presents, watching festive movies, and of course indulging in holiday flavored drinks. Lattes like Pumpkin Spice, Gingerbread, and Peppermint Mocha are just a few of my favs. Like so many of you out there, I want to be able to enjoy these seasonal flavors while still eating clean. I want something that is fabulously delicious and equally nourishing, and above all, I don’t […]...

Food Blogger Prop Swap 2013

fbps(small)

Have you ever been to a restaurant and while waiting for your meal to arrive, someone else’s meal at a nearby table came and it smelled so good or it looked so beautiful going by that you just had to sneak a peek? (I know I can’t be the only one, lol.) Kind-of like the impulse to look at someone else’s food, I love looking at other food blogger’s props. And drooling over not only the food they’re serving, but what they’re serving it on. Along those lines, I was pretty excited about the Food Blogger Prop Swap....

BLT {Butter Lettuce, Lox + Tarragon Schmear Bagel Sandwiches} & An Announcement

DSC_6067(small)

A couple years ago, Mike and I were at a pretty spiffy hotel in New York City; one morning Mike had to leave early for a meeting. I was debating between a workout, bubble bath, and breakfast. Being in New York and being the bagel-lover that I am, breakfast won out. There were a couple of delis not even a block away, but left to my own devices, I ordered room service: an espresso and a lox bagel. (Since then I’ve smartened up and generally choose the deli to satiate my cravings.)...

An Announcement & Review of The Recipe Girl Cookbook

CoverImage(small)

I have an exciting announcement today…I’m now a contributor to Recipe Girl’s other food blog, Culinary Covers! Lori has an incredibly talented bunch of contributors over there, and I’m honored to be included. The premise of Culinary Covers is to make and review cover recipes from food magazines and cookbooks to determine whether they are really cover-worthy; because we all know that although some cover recipes look insanely delicious, there are times when they turn out to be not-so-much worth the effort, let alone worthy of the coveted cover spot. It’s such a fun idea! The first recipe I made for Culinary Covers was from […]...
