In My Element
I think everyone wakes up with a story in their head. Some people wake up with a story to tell because itís their job to tell a good story, fiction or otherwise; some people wake up and they have a recipe to share, ingredients going through the mind and what their chemical reactions would be to each other (that would be my head).
There are two things, well, four, that people need the most in
Hello. I'm Back!
Well, it's been over three years since my last post, and I am so glad I never put this blog to rest. It's funny how life takes you for a ride and always bringing you back home with far more clarity. I'm back and ready to share what I've been up to recently and what I'm currently working on, and that would be: becoming a pastry chef. Yep; it's all or nothing. Are you surprised? I am. Happily
If Only a Book Were Worth a Thousand Bites...
On February 4th, on our way to mom's birthday dinner I came across this book at the nearby Border's. It was simply irresistible and my husband could tell I had to have it. Who said men aren't observant? It's a good thing he took it from my grip before I had a chance to dent the cover with my first molars through lateral incisors and leaving it wet and chewed up like a brown leather shoe left
Panang Thai on Sushi: Expect the unexpected
Sushi. From a Thai restaurant.
Unusual? Unthinkable? Irresponsible? Indigestible? One could think so considering how different the two cuisines are but this is the megalopolis of L.A. after all and anything goes here.
Yes, I ordered sushi from a Thai restaurant that also advertises Ph?; but housed in a large dinning room on the corner of Colorado Blvd and Argus under worn plastic signs, beyond
Vosages Chocolates: A Heart-to-Mouth Revolution
So, moving forward with my non-existent food blogging activities. Here with another tid-bit of information that I came across while surfing the website of Vosges Haut-Chocolate after I finally read through some of the back-logged Daily Candy newsletters that are now in the triple digits - in an email account I've "retired" from using as my main email contact - it's become a rather generous space
Event: Charity Bake Sale - No Cookie Left Behind!

I just had to.
I understand some kitchen enthusiasts might not be able to try this at home, and yes, for others this might be an acquired taste. But this unusual b(re)aker is serving yummy and maaaad "electro-funk-daddy-superstar" beatboxing skills hot from the oven!
What can I say? I'm just an urban epicurean who's a beat junkie at heart. ;)
Europane - Brunch in a Bag
There is something immediately soothing and comforting about being around food that is handled with Love. I enjoy very much going to the grocery store, there are two near my home that I could spend hours in, and the smell and layout of a bakery practically makes my body beg to be in side standing between bakery cases ogling over shelves of sweets and breads, taking my time to read each
Too Lazy to Post, but Never Too Lazy to Eat...
After about a year of food-blogging the inspiration to eat-and-tell comes and goes for me, and lately it has gone on extended vacations quite often. However, I still look forward to my first meal of the day, dining out as often as possible, shopping for kitchenware, gadgets and groceries, bookmarking eateries, gourmet/unusual/exotic food web stores, and photographing everything I eat. So what's
I've Been Tagged!
Hey, it's better than being branded. Malin gave me the honor and all I have to do is list 7 random things about me - its a wonder why I've taken this long to respond - and then tag 7 more people. Enjoy the fun-fibs facts! If not, well, sorry but you can't have your three seconds back.
1. I have four piercings, both ears, with two piercings on the right ear and one on the left, and a naval
Sexual Chocolate: Flurtz Making Women Cum Back for More?
Some Time Today in the PM - After being tired of seeing and moving around both packages of Flurtz chocolates to get to other food items for the past month, I have decided to finally experiment with them. Took grape juice out of fridge to bring to room temperature.
Okay folks, I'm going to take "food porn" to a whole new level here. I just might need to change this blog's URL to
My husband's Swiss-Canadian, he know chocolates, and my pet name for him is Swexy. That's just sooooo cute it makes you wanna...puke? Okay readers, you can go puke now.
And when you return, I'll give you my take one Flurtz...
So, after having tried it last night, what's my take on Flurtz? Let's just say I won't be sending them a testimonial any time soon. I can't say I felt anything unusual or
Catching My Breath
So it may seem I've been hiding behind the pots and pans these days on the account that I haven't posted in over a month. Sometimes life just takes over and one, even a food blogger, forgets to eat-and-tell - but never, ever, does she forget to eat. So for now I humbly serve you a couple of my most recently cured back posts. Bon Apetit!
