Chicken Enchiladas for Four

Recently I’ve rather lost my motivation of blogging. Not that I don’t enjoy this gig, it’s just that I wonder: those who make food blogging their career, how do they keep up with it?

Teaching Garden Classes with EnrichLA

Happy Thursday! I don’t think I’ve had a chance to share with you guys my new job that I started in January! Essentially, I’m a Garden Ranger for EnrichLA, a non-profit whose mission is to put gardens “in every school” in Los Angeles. My job–as well as the other Rangers–is to go to the schools […]

Some mornings you just want a little “umph” in your breakfast. Cereal just isn’t enough. This breakfast casserole really hits the spot. Prepare it the night […]

Broccoli and Kale Cheddar Soup

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a fun and safe holiday season.  Cobalt and I didn’t visit our families on the East Coast this year but instead enjoyed quality time together at our new home in Los Angeles.  We watched a lot of movies, enjoyed walks around our neighborhood, decorated Ginger Bread Houses (Cobalt […]
