Cold Longevity Noodle Salad

It turns out that longevity is a lot like revenge and is best served cold. This simple dish was a standout of my lunar new year brunch with friends taking it to go and it being the highlight of the following seriously bonkers work days. Save yourself about half of the sauce and prep extra…

Need a simple and ludicrously easy impressive looking snack that you’ll also find as the starter of The Cape hotel in Cabo? Thought so. What a happy accident to stumble into this no-recipe recipe! Spring Roll Crisps

Super Model Project: White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

Rarely a cookie recipe comes along – from a supermodel, no less- that truly blows your mind. This recipe is absolute, indulgent perfection! Sweet, salty, crunchy, chewy… Ms. Teigan nails it, the it being my waist line, but totally worth ‘it.’ Chrissy’s White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

Chrissy’s Cucumber Salad

Happy lunar new year, ya’ll! I don’t know anyone more ready for some cleansing, fresh vibes than this girl right here…which I suppose is ironic being that the holiday was ushered in by a carb-laden dim sum brunch and just wee bit of wine with the girls. There was this cucumber salad that Chrissy Teigan…

Spicy Tuna on Crispy Rice

One of my favorite restaurant appetizers is anything involving spicy tuna and bonus points if its resting on a bed of crispy rice. So, when I found this original Nobu copycat recipe, I knew that this had to be my special new year’s eve dinner. I need to try again on the rice as I’m…

Blueberry-Lemon Yogurt Cake

My go-to coffee cake recipe received a small makeover this morning involving one lemon that really elevated the recipe a bit. It’s amazing how lemons make absolutely everything better. When life gives you lemons, toss them into a tried and true recipe.

Jaya at The Setai- Miami

On our final evening in Miami, we celebrated my 40th birthday with a very upmarket dinner and an “Asian Bazaar Night” which was meant to have some sort of performances. Sounded kind of weird, we were in! Having dined and enjoyed drinks around the elegant Setai lobby in years passed, I was absolutely shocked when…

Esme Rooftop- Miami

The first night of our Miami girly weekend brought us to the Esme Hotel, recommended by several friends for well… all of their common spaces. The hotel was beautiful and with so much lovely, dim lighting we seemed to have spend a gorgeous evening there and took about zero photos. We dined on the rooftop…

Hotel Greystone- Miami

After a whirlwind work week, my sister joined me for a girly weekend on the beach and we relocated to Hotel Greystone which purports to be a design-y adults-only haven with its own beach access. Upon arriving at the hotel, the vibe was just right, the lobby was clean, elegant and well designed. We were…

Byblos- Miami

During a week-long work trip in Miami while staying at The Royal Palm South Beach, I managed to dine at Byblos two nights in a row before the work commitments really started. The restaurant is beautiful with lots of fun plates for sharing. This made it a challenge as a solo diner, but two meals…

Hashbrown Crust Quiche

Christmas this year saw the introduction of a beautiful new brunch creation that was as simple to make as it is colorful– hasbrown crust quiche! Made in a springform pan, it looks daringly more elegant and complicated than it actually is. She held together quite nicely when sliced! Hashbrown Crust Quiche For the crust: For…

Coco Bistro- Providenciales

After the year I had, I was grateful to be entering my 40th trip around the sun, rather than dreading this threshold of midlife. The day itself must have been built off of my vibe because it was absolutely better than expected. If you’re with good friends, what more do you really need, but I…
