Weekend treat--it's an almond party. @bobsredmill almond flour pancakes with pumpkin spice and protein powder. Topped with a nice scoop of almond butter and artsy drizzle of @kitehillfoods almond yogurt. Oh and a side of @sunsetmag
Grab your wallet and sunnies, it's the weekend. One more from @shopclarev because it was just so perfect.
It was time for a break from the salads anyways 😂 I throughly enjoyed my favorite flavor of roasted strawberry tres leches at the NEW Salt & Straw store in Hayes Valley tonight (it officially opens tomorrow!) Sometimes it's important to #treatyourself
SF trying to do its best East Coast impression. Now if we could get those leaves to turn it would really be fall. 🍂🍁
Still thinking about this beautiful holiday collection from @cledepeaubeauteus featuring artwork from @kf_paintings So amazing to see a family friend's artwork on these beautiful palettes.
It's roasting season. Basically just turn the oven to 375 and roast everything.
Just a little shopping in one of my favorite neighborhoods (Hayes Valley). Checking out the new, very photographic @clarevivier store.
This cup is far too tiny to contain the coffee I need this morning. On a side note, I linked a great article with ways to help donate and volunteer to support those affected by the north bay fires.
Scheming what cocktails I'm going to make this weekend. I just love the recipes and pictures in the new #artofthebarcart book. @craftandcocktails outdid herself. 🥃😘
Ok so my cooking doesn't look like this just yet but I'm working on it. In a few weeks, on Oct 28th, I'll be headed to the @ritzcarlton in Half Moon Bay to practice my cooking skills with Manish Tyagi of @august1five and make some beautiful modern Indian dishes. It's the perfect special weekend getaway and the best part is that there is still room to join me! Click the link in my profile for all of the info to sign up. #sponsored
That new shoe feeling. Seriously though, all the exercise classes these days don't involve shoes from barre to burn to spin you never need running shoes. I finally decided to get some new ones though...you know for walks...to brunch.
Thinking about one of my favorite places in the world today as many of its residents have to evacuate, leaving their homes and vineyards, due to wildfires. Hoping they are able to get it controlled soon and everyone stays safe. 💔
Breakfast is served. I like taking a little break from #fab4smoothie during the weekend with these almond flour pancakes. The recipe is from @theroastedroot and it is so good! Top with blueberries, rose petals (if you are extra fancy) and almond butter. Makes 9 pancakes (I halved it) 1-3/4 cups Bob's Red Mill Almond Meal/Flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons tapioca flour optional
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs lightly beaten
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3/4 cup almond milk
The perfect day to watch a little air show. There is a little hint of fall in the air even though it's sunny. Anyone else think of SATC every time fleet week rolls around? #fleetweek
Colder weather calls for cozy green veggie curry. I just follow the instructions on the back of the @thaikitchen green curry bottle substituting coconut sugar for cane sugar and adding LOTS of veggies plus a little brown rice and tofu.
Earring party today. These @penhlenhdesigns tassels strike the perfect balance between statement making and everyday.
Sometimes you just need to treat yourself. I like to treat myself with this floral chocolate from @honeymamas I know it's either like it or you don't sort of thing but I love lavender and rose in food.
Today this quote just made sense... "I don't want to wait anymore. I choose to believe that there is nothing more sacred or profound than this day. I choose to believe that there may be a thousand big moments embedded in this day, waiting to be discovered like tiny shards of gold. The big moments are the daily, tiny moments of courage and forgiveness and hope that we grab onto and extend to one another. That's the drama of life, swirling all around us, and generally I don't see it, because I'm too busy waiting to become whatever it is I think I'm about to become. The big moments are in every hour, every conversation, every meal, every meeting.
But this is what I’m finding, in glimpses and flashes: this is it. This is it, in the best possible way. That thing I’m waiting for, that adventure, that move-score-worthy experience unfolding gracefully. This is it. Normal, daily life ticking by on our streets and sidewalks, in our houses and apartments, in our beds and at our dinner tables, in our dreams and prayers and fights and secrets – this pedestrian life is the most precious thing any of use will ever experience." - @sniequist
One of my favorite things to do on the weekends (in addition to napping and grocery shopping) is to give my skin a little TLC. After masking I put on this @biossance oil to restore moisture. The eye cream comes in handy when I want to look rested going into the week and I'm holding on to these wipes for travel. So awesome to try out a new clean (and Bay Area-based) skincare brand. Thank you @biossance for sending me product to try!
October I can't believe you are here. I'm excited to start making soups again and cozy up under blankets #sobasic
