4 Ingredient Frittata via iPhone

IMG_1373

Lately I have been cooking breakfast at the office, since I am always in a rush to get to work I never have the chance to laze around in the kitchen. But there are limited utensils and ingredients, with a makeshift kitchen (a table with a cutting board, basically…oh and a microwave) I’ve resorted to […]

Waffle BLT

DSC_0915

It’s Friday, and I can’t make any crazy promises. That I won’t pick up some Moet tonight would be a lie. Or that I won’t start my morning off with a bang. And this morning I need this, a waffle sliced in half with bacon (almost burnt, crisp of course), lettuce, and sliced tomatoes. But […]

Monk’s Head Brunch

DSC_0415

Now if you are tired of that same French Toast thing on a Sunday morning, you can also try some freshly shaved Monk’s head on mini butter rolls. With some fresh fruit too of course…and some very spicy Grand Marnier soaked apricots…. The only hang up about this cheese is that you will need a […]

Perfect Egg

DSC_1954

Was previously on this mission to practice the perfect egg, and these tools above, they can be used several different ways. Overeasy, sunny side up, soft boiled, and poached. It does not really matter how you get to the final answer. Just that it comes out perfectly. Who said it’s the thought that counts? Execution […]

Texas Toast

DSC_8737

Simple texas toast breakfast by the computer while I start my morning. E-mail and my favorite blogs of course. Texas toast is one of my favorite things to pick up at the supermarket, it is very, what do you call it, ‘America’. And by the time I am done it will be hard to tell […]

4 American Classics, 1 machine

DSC_6642

So it’s pretty clear by now that I’ve made more than enough attempts at difficult recipes, things that aren’t exactly realistic for a person who has a serious job, or someone who has a family, kids to pick up from soccer practice, or for a typical twenty-thirty something that works 9-7 and then goes out […]

Early sunday morning

DSC_6244

Today I woke up at 2 am so I was able to do some shooting before starting the day, may visit a friend out of state or may go to the studio, depends on my mood. Also, had to burn some music for my car. Was really tired of listening to my iPhone, craving Harmon […]

French toast sticks, anyone?

DSC_5412

Priorities: Getting some restaurant brioche loaves from Balthazar, and then doing a minimal french toast setup with 2 dipping sauces, no maple syrup… If you’ve been around the block with brioche, you’ll know that Balthazar’s really the only one worth eating. Lost my gloves. Oh well. Dark chocolate… Prepare cream for both the chocolate and […]

Lox on bagels

DSC_5253

Priorities and rituals, not much in between going on in life. We’ve already discussed priorities, so now I’m taking the ritual chase. Sunday morning, lox on bagels, some friends and coffee. Gloves off. Need to write thank you note to Adele? Her jam made my sunday morning shoot very chill. Sambuca, anyone? Grinding some fresh […]

Egg in a hole

DSC_4962

Well good morning! I am a woman of my word, and I mentioned that I’d be doing some more breakfast posts like this, intimate setting. Made my way out of a whiskey haze at 5 am this morning but my priorities were crystal. Use up the rest of that truffle I bought, shoot, post, and […]

Breakfast with Luxirare

DSC_4685

One of my new years resolutions was to let you guys in on my life a little bit. I think one of the most intimate moments during the day is Breakfast, where you make the shift between dream state to reality. Mornings are always a struggle for me, I get up very early every day […]

Pancake Secrets

DSC_0893

For years I wondered what made restaurant pancakes taste so good. I’ve made them at home and they never looked like pancakes. The looked like FRIED cakes. Look at this picture here for an example. The restaurant pancakes were always slightly chewy, soft, airy, and the batter was never fried. In fact they had a […]

Scented Almond Milk

DSC_0560

One reader named Nikki had left a comment about almond milk, it’s something I like to drink now because it lacks that animal-scent you get with cow’s milk. I’ve never really been a fan of soy milk but almond milk is amazing. Anyway, in the comment she mentioned that it is so easy to make […]

Don’t toss it

DSC_0580

What do you do with an empty Diptyque candle jar…too nice to throw it out..right? Use a damp towel to line the roots, I would even cut darts into the towel so it doesn’t pleat too much. ..from Balthazer..look at those vanilla seeds.

Rose Granola

DSC_0681

Quick post here, this is part of a bigger post but I had to break it down because it’s too much. If you like rose scented things you will love this. I love rose flavored macarons, but it works beautifully with granola. Dip rose petals into the agave nectar. I use agave nectar because it […]

Split Personality

DSC_0060

6 am decisions are always hard to make, especially when it comes to selecting a bagel flavor. Usually I can’t decide between ‘cinnamon raisin’ and ‘everything’, but today the battle was between an egg bagel and an everything bagel. So if I can’t decide I just have to do both, the same way I couldn’t […]

Breakfast

DSC_0248

I have this little thing I like to eat and I had to share because it’s too good not to.. Some cookies (soft) with two kinds of sorbet… But being specific is key. I have a specific batch of cookies I buy from the whole foods brand, and two specific sorbets. This won’t work with […]

Multigrain Croissant

DSC_0064

Really simple late breakfast here. I’ve been enjoying these multigrain croissants that I can only get at Costco, and when I first saw them I was surprised because I’ve never really seen a multigrain croissant before. They are so nutty, flaky, and there are lots of seeds inside that just make it delicious. Perfect …

Lox on Crepes

DSC_0388

Just another simple brunch idea. Enjoy! Crepe mix + a little bit of grated nutmeg. Nutmeg grater available HERE. Use a savory batter for this. This presentation is good for sharing. Onions, capers, tomatoes, creme fraiche, and chives. I added wasabi flavored caviar to the mix as well. Wrap it like a taco and eat. […]
