As an adult I still love DIY projects. Saying something is DIY is just a grown up version of arts and crafts. Yesterday I invited a few friends over, and we spent our Sunday dying Easter eggs – it was a fun, mindless activity and I loved getting to feel like a kid again. Whether you’re an adult, a kid or somewhere in between this spring craft is fun for the whole family.
This year we had the idea to do a sort of “Nobu-at-home” night for Valentine’s Day and make our own versions of dishes served at a high-end sushi restaurant like Nobu to continue our tradition of cooking together at home on February 14th.
I am from New Jersey, where anything you can possibly imagine can be served on a bagel. This is the perfect brunch spread because everyone can assemble their own bagels.
The perfect finds for everyone on your list.
For this gathering of family and friends, I paired with American Lamb for a Mediterranean style BBQ.

I spend most of my time in Santa Monica, where I live, and in nearby Venice; both of which are on the Westside of LA. I wanted to share some of my favorite things to do on this side of town.
I am not your typical person – not everyone keeps their kitchen pantry/ refrigerator stocked with kimchi, an assortment of chilies and spices or duck fat. While I consider these necessities (and I may be the only one who does), in this blog I will note the ordinary staples that I keep stocked, with the hope that others can make a meal “on the fly”.
There’s such an ease about being at brunch with your close friends. You can sit around and eat, drink and laugh all morning without realizing that any time has passed.
Anyone else out there over-eager for the holiday season and planning their holiday meals too? It’s never too early to plan!
Seeing other women turn their creativity into full-time or even part-time careers is incredibly inspiring especially when we all bring such different skills to the table.
Eating oysters can be intimidating – and shucking them can be even scarier! But once you get the hang of it, it’s fun and you feel accomplished. Learn all about the various types of oysters, how to shuck them and how to throw an oyster party of your own.
This hummus trio crudité is one of my favorite “Instagram-worthy” spreads to bring to any summertime social gathering.
The day after our “create” dinners I sit back and think of how inspired I am by all the women that I met the night before. Each person brought their own talent and story to the table and it’s always nice to meet new people.
Instead of going out to an overbooked restaurant and sitting jammed at communal tables overhearing other people’s conversations, and paying for overpriced holiday tasting menus, try staying at home with your loved one and making dinner together.
So that you don’t show up empty handed for your Super Bowl party, I have put together a recipe guide perfect for watching the Super Bowl or for participating in any other game day.
For the third edition of our creative collaboration dinner party we decided to put a holiday spin on things, but without going too over the top.
This Thanksgiving we are doing things a bit differently than we normally do. This year we are heading to Alabama for the Iron Bowl, Alabama’s football game against its in-state rival Auburn.
