Peanut Butter & Employment Sandwiches

A California Midsummer’s Harvest, in a bowl

A late July trip to the Santa Monica Farmers’ Market and a really simple, adaptable grilled vegetable and heirloom tomato dinner that truly requires no recipe, just good, local ingredients. This meal makes me feel really grown-up, by the way.

Happy Birthday, Ryan! (um, Cupcakes!!)

It’s super hot in Los Angeles, so I crank up the oven and make Ryan a batch of chocolate cupcakes for his birthday. We feel sick.

June Gloom: Chicken Tortilla Soup

The weather is awful, it’s this June Gloom thing here in Southern California. But hey, it’s a really good excuse to make soup during the summer!
