We scored big time this year guys! For once, we’re actually home for more than a week at a time during Summer. Because we’re not traveling as much, we’re able to hang out in the garden and beat all the garden critters to the figs. This is huge. Literally, huge in both the harvest and […]

Deep Dish Oatmeal Raisin Cookie a la Mode – “Pizookie Style”

by White on Rice Couple August 1, 2014

Way back in 2009 we shared our love of “pizookie” style deep dish cookies on the blog. They were always fresh and warm from the oven and graced with a few scoops of ice cream. Within minutes, the ice cream melted and what we had before us was a glorious deep dish of warm cookies and […]

Roasted Corn Tabouli and Ode to Summer Corn

Roasted Corn Tabouli Salad

For some reason when August rolls around it feels as if it is our last chance at eating corn. And by eating corn we mean the super good, freshly-picked, wipe the chin, juicy sweet corn.  Once September arrives everyone seems to be ready to immediately switch seasonal gears and it’s all about Autumn. As July comes […]

iphone images on Instagram. Follow Todd and Diane  We used to take for granted all the local gems that are within an arms reach from us. We would drive 5 or 6 hours to discover something new, which ultimately meant having to take a few days off to make the adventure worthwhile.   About five years ago […]

It’s still a shock to us that half the year is almost over and that we’re entering the end of June. Still, what is more of a shock? That 4th of July is next week and we’re in June mode. Our abrupt reminder was last night when someone ignited some illegal fireworks in our neighborhood […]

Strawberry-Blackberry Pudding

To be a host, party-giver, entertainer. For us one of the most important priorities is to make sure everyone feels included. Wether it is clients at the studio for a shoot, or if we are hosting one of our photography/styling workshops, or if it is just friends over at the house, that sense of inclusion […]

Way back in 2003 when Todd was managing Cafe Zinc, we would often have staff parties at the house. It was always a blast because everyone was able to wind down, relax and be able to be fed food instead of having the role of feeding others all day long. Todd and I would spend […]

Four and a half months of planning with Creativelive came down to three days. Those three days were so lightening fast, it was hard to remember what happened even ten minutes prior. And to think that we considered to not partake in teaching because we didn’t think we could share anything different that hasn’t already […]

Boozy ice pops have been one of our secret addictions for so long now that rarely do any of our clients or workshop attendees leave without a lick.  We’re enablers for sure and that’s what makes our shoots, workshops and gatherings so fun is that everyone gets a double dose of booze. Start with a cocktail […]

Chili Garlic Roasted Potatoes

Even when it’s hot outside we’re craving a dinner with something roasted in the oven. This just might be one of the last dishes that we roast in the oven for the next few months. Why? Because our traditional wood-fired oven is almost complete. Whew. It’s an epic project that includes lots of planning, prepping […]

Last week we had a heat wave that lasted five days of hot, dry, Santa-Ana windy weather above 95 degrees. We were dying over here, so to make it bearable we ate lots of blackberry mojito pops. That’s how to cool down and freshen spirits in style! But mojito pops wasn’t all that we nourished […]

One Pot Stovetop Creamy Kale Mac and Cheese

by White on Rice Couple March 21, 2014

Yes, adding kale can justify mac and cheese being “healthier”, can’t it? Please say yes because that’s what my conscience was telling me when I wanted to combine two of my top 25 foods all in one pot. Perhaps I’m making up lost time as a kid when all I wanted to eat was mac […]

We swear it wasn’t intentional to be missing from the blog for five weeks and return with booze. In fact, we had this recipe ready to share about seven weeks ago but a few things got in the way and blog life kinda came to a screeching halt. And secondly, we missed you all and […]

The Winter Olympics are here and we’re trying our hardest to sneak in as much spectator time as possible, on television, that is. There’s so much that we love about the Olympics, but it’s the personal stories that make watching the events so special. We all have our dreams to pursue and to see someone […]
