Snacks in the Mail

August 6, 2014

Like most human beings, I love presents. Especially when they show up at my door! Who doesn’t like opening a package? It’s fun when you don’t know what’s inside, but it’s just as fun when you do, and you’ve been waiting days or weeks for it to arrive.

I got a package recently that was very fun to open. That’s because it was full of snacks! Read the rest of this entry »

Colorado Nibbles and Bits… PLUS, “American Ninja Warrior” News!

May 28, 2014

There’s more to share from my long weekend in Colorado, but first… I was on TV the other night!  A few months ago, I went with a group of friends to an all-night taping of “American Ninja Warrior” in Venice Beach. We were cheering on our friend Tommy, who was competing on the show, and the episode aired Monday on NBC. Unfortunately, Tommy wasn’t featured during the broadcast, but if you look closely (don’t blink or look away!) or have your finger on the Pause button, you can see me in the stands!

I Think I’ll Try to Make Pickles

May 15, 2014

…is what I said one day when I got bombarded with lots of amazing fresh produce. Thanks to my partnership with LA Salad Company, I got my hands on loads of fresh beans and squash. More than I could possibly eat. Since pickling is a classic preservation technique, I thought what the hell? I’ll try to make pickles! I love a good cucumber pickle, but you can pickle all sorts of veggies, so my experiment involved baby zucchini, green pattypan squash (which look like little flying saucers) and yellow wax beans. I also threw in 1/2 of a red onion, because it seems like they’re always making red onion pickles on “Top Chef.”
