Amazing Fresh Blueberry Cream Cheese Frosting

Amazing Fresh Blueberry Cream Cheese Frosting

Remember my last rustic berry red velvet cake recipe? Well, that was just the beginning to return to my love of baking desserts and cakes. I promised I was on a mission to work on some of my favorite cake recipe s but along with that has other duties too. One of them is to […]

Easy Strawberry-Blackberry Pudding

Easy 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 […]

Sweet Cherry-Bomb and Coconut Milk Pops

Sweet Cherry-Bomb and Coconut Milk Pops

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 […]

Orange-Spiced Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Orange-Spiced Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Lately we have been gardening fools.  Geeked out over little projects and springtime plantings. Our souls feeling rejuvenated as the garden warms from its wintertime laziness. Yes even here in So Cal the garden goes a bit mellow during the chillier months. We’ll shoot with a client in our studio from 7 until 4 and […]

Blood Orange Gin and Tonic

Blood Orange Gin and Tonic

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 […]

Meyer Lemon Magic Custard Cake for Breakfast

Meyer Lemon Magic Custard Cake for Breakfast

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 […]

Blood Orange Buttermilk Pound Cake

Blood Orange Buttermilk Pound Cake

It’s always around this time of year that we begin swimming in citrus and every meal (and drink!) has some splash of fragrant juice. You can call it a garden obsession, but we’re not far from being finished. Last week we planted another (our third) blood orange tree and it wasn’t in-celebration to grow more, […]

Pomegranate Gin Cocktail to Celebrate all of 2013

Pomegranate Gin Cocktail to Celebrate all of 2013

When the first few days of 2013 passed, we knew it was going to be a big year and a year of many firsts. We love diving into “firsts” because the excitement of wondering what’s going to happen is thrilling.  Our first cookbook, Bountiful, was going to be released in October and back in January […]

Chocolate, Berry and Cream Cheese Danish

Chocolate, Berry and Cream Cheese Danish

Rarely do I ever watch television. Call me a tv-hermit, but between the newspaper, the internet and twitter, I seem to be caught up with everything that I need to know. Then there was the straight 12 hours I sat on a flight from Australia to Los Angeles that forced me to either sleep (which […]

Apple Spiced Coffee Cake

Apple Spiced Coffee Cake

Before we left for Australia there was a bit more pantry cleaning we needed to do, trying to minimize any produce going to waste. Diane had roasted up the teriyaki glazed brussels sprouts for us to munch on, but there were apples, persimmons, and tons of garden fresh limes which most likely weren’t going to […]

Video: Colorado Gold & Apple Cider Waffles

Can’t believe it’s been about three years since we’ve gone apple picking. Normally every October we venture up to the San Ynez Valley to make a day of gigantic-pumpkin searching and apple picking. And when we say gigantic, we really do mean the really huge pumpkins that you can use as a seating stool for […]

Happy Birthday Lemon Bundt Cake Recipe for Bountiful Cookbook

We’re celebrating a birthday today! Our cookbook, Bountiful, is finally released and we can give a big exhale to the last year and a half of writing, photographing, recipe developing and eating-till-we-drop. In the cookbook, we actually don’t have any cake recipes, however for this occasion, we made cake.  A lemon bundt cake for Bountiful, […]

Pumpkin Spice Coffeecake – Ok, I Give Up, Summer is Over

Pumpkin Spice Coffeecake – Ok, I Give Up, Summer is Over

I can’t take it anymore! I give in and am finally going to embrace the fact that autumn is here. I’ve been trying to hold out, desperately clinging to summer’s fruit and veggie bounty. Pushing aside any thoughts of pumpkins and other winter squashes, stews, roasts. All of that delicious autumn comfort goodness.

Pomegranate Juice & Green Globe Pomegranates

Pomegranate Juice & Green Globe Pomegranates

We were in the dead of summer heat here over these past few weeks. Well, for us Southern California coastal folks, anything that hits 95 degrees is a reason to complain about it being too hot. Why is it that Summer decided to arrive now? In September? Maybe this is a good thing, all this […]

Fig Bruschetta Recipe and Love of Fig Photographs

I vividly remember a conversation I had with a fellow food photographer/food blogger a few years ago about figs. Food talk with fellow food bloggers? I didn’t intend for this an “f” alliteration, but doesn’t it sound like it could be the title of a food column? Yes? Anyways, I’ll get back on track about […]

Fresh Apricot Bars

Fresh Apricot Bars

Lately it seems our cooking at home has been driven by an over abundance of ingredients. Creativity from Copiousness, if you will. Not that we are complaining. Quite the opposite really, we couldn’t be happier. The garden is going blitzkrieg with its tomato production. We’ve lost the battle for the blueberries with the mockingbirds, but […]

Meyer Lemon Crinkle Cookies

Meyer Lemon Crinkle Cookies

I love a really good cookie. Though I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, I appreciate and savor every bite of dessert that my palate can tolerate. And though I’m not capable of eating too much, I’m always searching for a great recipe that can satisfy my two to three bites of sweet joy. […]

Our “Bountiful” Cookbook Preview & Roasted Strawberry Scone Recipe

Our “Bountiful” Cookbook Preview & Roasted Strawberry Scone Recipe

We did it. We made it. And haven’t killed each other over which recipes were going to make the cut. Though we both have less hair than when we first announced last year, we did figure out how to make our small kitchen more efficient and whose turn it was to use the big burner. […]

Blood Orange Margarita with Bitters

Blood Orange Margarita with Bitters

Just as Diane has her prop collecting obsession, I have my own vice. Well, more like a double vice since most toss drinking into that classification. I am mildly bedeviled by making cocktails. There is something exquisitely alluring in what has become a combination of ritual and swagger. A little James Bond, a dash of […]

Dark Chocolate Mousse with Raspberry Puree

It is too easy for the daily “I love you” ‘s and quick kisses to have the same depth as a “what up, bro” or a “hey, girlfriend”. Happens to the best of us. Well maybe not the best, but at least us mortals. Now you don’t have to bust out the Marvin Gaye, blindfold […]
