the darling x aerie retreat: some recipes!

October 25, 2017

hi friends! Hope your week has been amazing so far. A few weeks back, I got to partner up with two AMAZING brands, Darling Magazine and Aerie and had the opportunity to host and cook for their retreat! We invited 20 women, and together spent a weekend in the Hamptons having some quality intentional rest time. We ate like queens, swam in the pool, I taught a personality workshop, and we explored the Ocean shore. The weekend was absolutely dreamy. Cooking for 20 women can be overwhelming, but with the help of my assistant and a few simple and beautiful recipes, the weekend was overwhelmingly enjoyable. I wanted to share a few of my favorite recipes with you that are some go-to’s for groups like this!

the bourbon pumpkin

November 21, 2016

Thanksgiving is practically here! Can you believe it? Last week I headed down to Austin to throw a Women + Whiskies Party with Noonday Collection. I’m honestly so amazed at the amount of creative women in this world. Each time I host one of these events, I’m blown away at the talent, the entrepreneurial spirit, and the gusto of the women who attend. We gathered Tuesday evening for a cocktail party at South Congress Hotel, and together with my friends Ruthie Lindsey and Jen Pinkston, we hosted a party to celebrate women in Austin, while sipping on our delicious whiskey libations.

the canadian pumpkin- a holiday whiskey cocktail

November 15, 2016

Thanksgiving is coming! It is truthfully my favorite time of year. Eating all the delicious things with all the delicious condiments, lingering way too long at the dinner table and slothfully transitioning into pie-time. The smells, the colors, the change in the air, it’s all so deliciously delightful! And, fall flavors carry this warmth quality that brings comfort to any dish or drink. One of my favorite of all the holiday flavors is pumpkin… Have you ever tried it in a cocktail? It’s magic.

halloween cocktail roundup

October 28, 2016

It’s that time of year friends, for spooks and costumes and endless sugar rushes. Halloween is a fun holiday; in my mind, it ushers in the rest of fall, and brings us closer to slow times with family and the people we love. Plus, how fun is it to get dressed up once a year and bring out that childlike nature in all of us?! This Halloween, I’ve rounded up 4 of my favorite spooktastic cocktails. These adult libations are a great fit for any Halloween party, and add to the playful fun of October’s ending celebration.

blistered shishito peppers with toasted sesame seeds

September 27, 2016

You know what I’ve been addicted to lately? Shishito peppers. Blistered shishito peppers started popping up on menus all around LA about a couple of summers ago, and for good reason! These peppers are a highly addictive picky bit to start off any meal. They’re bright green and fairly mellow, except for the occasional spicy one that packs a punch- so it’s fun eating them too, cause you never know if you’ll get one spicy guy out of the bunch!
