Heart Decanter

Picture 1

Couldn’t help myself, just had to share some of these beautiful decanters by a designer/artist in Italy. I have to thank the girl who tweeted me the link (@CeciliasClaws).. I wasn’t sure if I was just going to share a random image of a heart decanter, but I loved that the artist included some process [...]

One of my favorite dinners… I try to keep them carb-less…and the best thing for me is just a piece of fresh fish from the market, some salt, and a broiler.. Branzino is my favorite…

Don’t toss it

DSC_0580

What do you do with an empty Diptyque candle jar…too nice to throw it out..right? Use a damp towel to line the roots, I would even cut darts into the towel so it doesn’t pleat too much. ..from Balthazer..look at those vanilla seeds.

Last meal before I die

DSC_0055_2

Nothing I cook will ever taste as good as Popeye’s fried chicken. If  I was ever penalized with the death sentence this would definitely be my last meal. Champagne, fried chicken from Popeye’s, and Sir Kensington’s ketchup. What would be yours? I’m at whole foods at least 10 times a week. What about you? It’s [...]

5 minute avocado sorbet

DSC_0061

No ice cream machine? No Kitchen-aid stand mixer? No time? Fine. I’ll make an avocado sorbet in 5 minutes (this does not include freeze time).
