orange infused campfire cake

Monday, January 31st, 2011

I heart debbie carlos, a great photographer with a great blog that chronicles her food adventures including this amazing cake baked inside a hollowed out orange cooked on a campfire. With the spring approaching, I can’t wait to make this on the next camping trip.

See her etsy shop here and her blog: Weekend here.

LA Blog: Stylish Guide

Friday, May 23rd, 2008


Oh Yeah, I’ve been forgetting to add Stylish Guide to my LA blog roll! Genevieve has given me tons of tips (here and on AT). She rounds up great places to eat, bargains galore and everything’s local to LA. Check out her recent post on French Bakeries in LA! Can’t wait to check some of these places out!

More LA Blogs!

Thursday, March 13th, 2008


OK, I was getting sad that I hadn’t added more LA design blogs to the right hand toolbar, but with the start of the Cure on Apartment Therapy (you’re not too late to sign up btw) I’ve unearthed a couple more LA based bloggers covering their Cure progress:

Design Bee’s Tiny Abode
Apartment 235 (which is funny because I just moved from a 235 street address)
Apartment Living: Color and Life
Hollywood and Western

[The poster image is from Designer Bee’s Blog and you can buy it here]

Editor in Motion

Thursday, March 6th, 2008


All of us editors at Apartment Therapy LA got together this past sunday to ‘discuss’ and ‘pow wow’ and ‘eat a lot of cadbury mini eggs’.

I like this picture because it looks like I’m saying something important. But probably I was just describing that it took me 4 hours to get to Pasadena.

Housemartin Flowers

Sunday, March 2nd, 2008


I think it’s pretty obvious how into flowers I am. Oddly I hadn’t really noticed until I started this blog and I just always gravitate to the flowery image. In that spirit I had to give a nod to housemartin and her incredible wedding bouquets. You can order your own through her company ink and peat if you’re in Portland. I’m always amazed and inspired by her eye for color and texture. Enjoy!



Tomatoes

Friday, February 29th, 2008


I’ve started writing a weekly piece over at cityzine on what’s ripe at the farmer’s market and normally I include a super simple recipe that just involves cutting things and not actually cooking them. Be warned, I use a slightly different voice in these posts. I guess you could say it’s my other side. the side that’s a little crass, a little bit more silly, and maybe even…offensive?

One of those weeks

Monday, February 25th, 2008


Somehow last week’s hectic-ness is spilling over into this week. This is lunch at my desk while blogging and doing my homework assignment on color. (My lunch is a giant hunk of smoked salmon and meyer lemon from my tree! A lazy person’s lunch…)

LA Design Blogs

Tuesday, February 19th, 2008

I’m compiling a list of as many great Los Angeles interior/design/home blogs as I can (that are maintained by one or 2 people not whole brands). So if you have one or love one leave it in the comments. I’d love to have a greater sense of the community we have here. A couple of my favorites, in no particular order are:

Coco + Kelley
No Accounting for Taste
My Little Apartment
Happy Mundane

Update:
All you LA-ers have a new place in LA pride here in the right hand collumn. I’ll keep adding names as you keep telling me!

Let’s see how many of us there are!

Lara Cameron and Kirin and Co Design

I’m so into

right now. She’s made a bunch of card (and tag) designs for the Moo holiday series that I think are perfectly simple and sweet:

Wired Living Home

Thursday, November 8th, 2007


So I got to go to the fancy cocktail party for the opening of the Wired Living Home earlier this week. Beside it being so full of people that it was hard to even get a load of the house, it was pretty impressive. I mean it’s a huge modern house designed by a whole design firm on a hillside in a really nice part of LA. What’s not to like? You can read about way ore of the details over on Apartment Therapy. I also uploaded a whole (dark) photo tour….

I loved the wallpaper in the kids room and the guest room. It was listed as being from either Hollywood at Home or Luna Textiles.
