My post this week is an ode to leftovers. I adore them. There are so many dishes that are just as good the second time or even better. Leftovers require less cooking and less mess too. Leftovers do not need to be boring; it is not required that you eat the same dish over and over. Finding a creative and different way to use leftover meat, sauce, or side dish can lead to another interesting and tasty meal.

As I sit here and write this, I am listening to the rain beat down on the awning above me that’s keeping me dry as I watch the drops fall on my front yard. I savor times like these. When you live where not one drop of water falls from the sky 10 months out of the year, you welcome rainy days, even if the rain lasts for only an hour.

The holiday season just would not be the same without the over usage of all things "flavored." Autumn and spice and everything nice is everywhere. Just when you think your absolutely tired of it, you think you can not take any more... you make some flavored coffee.

Did you know you can add flavors to your whipped cream? I might be the only one who didn't know this life-altering information, but when Kirst told me this, I knew I had to try it ASAP. In fact, I pushed for trying it the next day, as a little addition to our Latte Bar at the Launch Party.

Growing up a favorite treat was hot toast with butter, cinnamon and sugar. We had a shaker filled with a 50/50 mix of cinnamon and sugar. It was the perfect after dinner snack: sweet, spicy and worthy of savoring every last bite.

Looking at this smoothie, it’s hard to believe that you can’t taste the spinach in it. Three cups of spinach and you can’t taste it? No, you really can’t. Not even a little bit.

I'm so excited, it snowed today! There's no better time to cook up some hot chocolate then during a winter storm! I love this hot chocolate because I love the rich chocolate flavor and sweet raspberry flavor together. If you want to make this even more creamy just add sweetened whipped cream on top and it will taste like chocolate raspberries and cream. Yum! It can also be served with marshmallows or its also delicious all on it's own. I

I seriously don’t understand this trend for café obscurity – what happened to big fluoro signage that was easy to spot? Thank God for iPhone GPS, for the front entrance is so hidden away you could easily walk past it 5 times before realising it. The overflow of coffee-sippers onto outdoor tables at the back entrance makes it a little easier to spot, but that’s after you stumble down an alleyway to actually find it.

For me, the tastes and smells of fall not only mean the holidays are soon approaching but it’s a warm feeling that I embrace. Not because of all the prezzies I may get from Mr. Santa (well, who’s kidding, that’s pretty nice) but more so the warmth of embraces that we have for each other during this time of year.

My sister made this spicy ginger soda for breakfast one morning, and after a night of too much wine, it made me feel 10x better. I drink it, now, when I’m sluggish, dehydrated, or if I didn’t sleep well the night before. It is a miracle beverage – the elixer of all blergy-things.

It is the season for pomegranate. After a hot summer, the seeds have a dark red colour and they are delicious and really sweet. One of the best ways to eat pomegranate seeds is simply raw in a juice, in salads with nuts and raisins or, if you have a sweet tooth, just add some sugar.

I love baking with pumpkin, but I always seem to have some leftover! Not enough to bake something else, but too much to throw away. Enter this homemade pumpkin spice coffee creamer.

Don’t worry – you don’t actually have to use Meyer lemons for this cocktail if you can’t find them. I always scoop them up when I can find them because it’s a cross between a regular lemon and an orange. Either one you go with is delish with the blueberries!

Delicious fresh pumpkin pie in a glass – smoothie style. Yum! All of the delicious spices and flavors of pie in less than ten minutes. Who needs the crust? This smoothie is tasty!

It's binge blogging again - and this time the subject is Orangecello from the Ventura Limoncello Company. I discovered this delightful liqueur early this Summer as I was finishing up a purchase at K&L Wines here in Hollywood.

Autumn is in the air. I think? The weather in the Northeast cannot seem to make up its temperamental mind. Last Saturday brought the first snow of the season. I am not talking about a few beautiful, puffy white flakes, I mean the skies opened up and hurled miniature snowballs to the world below all day long. I equipped our bed with warm flannel sheets and our neighbors cranked their dusty radiators.

I’ve been waiting with bated breath to unveil images from the Summer in Savannah shoot I styled last month…and the day has finally arrived! I collaborated with an amazing team that included The Byrd Collective, Antiquaria and She-n-He Photography to create a fête dripping with Southern charm…and I think it all came together as gorgeous inspiration for an end of summer bachelorette party, baby shower or birthday celebration. Hope on over to100 Layer Cake to check out all the details from food to favors, and follow the jump for the exclusive recipe for our Savannah Fizz cocktail!

One of my favourite drinks in the world is a Chai Tea Latte. I love the spicy aroma, creamy milk, and the sweetness from the honey and sugar. This recipe for Spicy Chai Tea turned out amazing. It is the perfect balance of spiciness and sweetness.

This past weekend there was some interesting weather. While we were experiencing a heat wave in San Diego, parts of the East Coast were experiencing some severe snow. In October!

Although I’m not lactose intolerant (which I’m thankful for), my dairy consumption especially the good kind has been a disgrace. You know how deep my love is for cheese and creamy pasta, somehow I couldn’t show the same level of affection for milk and yoghurt.

The really cool temperatures are creeping in here in Wyoming and nothing warms you up like a nice cup of hot cocoa. I decided to give my cocoa a new twist with some Nutella and cinnamon. I get teased a lot about my fondness of Nutella and when my husband eyed my hot cocoa the teasing began. He said, “Well one time at Nutella camp.” I just laughed and immediately started thinking about Camp Nutella, would’nt that be fun!

I think most of you know about my love affair with mojitos so when Jeanine (our photographer) told me she had a cucumber mojito recipe I was all ears. I love agua de pepino (fresh cucumber water) as well as cucumber martinis, so it only made sense to make a refreshing cucumber mojito.

h, it's finally starting to feel like Fall here in Southern California. After the last few hot weeks, I'm eagerly greeting Fall!! The first thing that comes to my mind when I think about Fall and Winter is Egg Nog and cute coats and boots...I can't wait to pull mine out!

found this recipe in a little Halloween booklet I picked up years ago that seems to have completely disappeared online! I loved the idea of an herbal witch's brew to serve on Halloween. Although they serve it warm, I added the concoction to some lime soda and it was quite tasty.

It’s not even winter yet but it’s getting colder and colder every day. Brrr. I’m not a fan of cold weather, never have and I don’t think I ever will so I always try to come up with food and drinks that can warm me up and make cold days a little better. Recently, on one of those days, I took a bottle of pure apple juice, mixed it up with some spices and made this delicious spiced apple drink. It’s officially my new favorite winter drink!

This is a classic, but we decided to Halloween-ify it for the season. Now, we know this might be a throw back to your college years, but it’s still a great cocktail. Choose high quality vodka (something like Stoli, Grey Goose or Absolute) as well as a great orange juice, we usually buy the Simply Orange brand.

I'm still very much not unpacked. But today is Friday, and rather than spend my weekend digging through boxes, spackling drywall, or scrubbing tar out of the carpet, at exactly 14:45 I'm boarding a Bolt Bust and heading to NYC for the weekend to leave my troubles behind catch up with some of the loves of my pre and post blogging life.

Dishoom is a relatively new Indian cafe in London serving Bombay street food. Steve and I love it and particularly recommend the vada pau and the virgin bombalada - a spicy remake of the classic cocktail the virgin pina colada.

Last week I spent almost an hour in the store – in the Halloween aisle(s). The manufacturers have put their best marketers to work and they have their sites on easy targets like me. No idea has been left unpack aged.
