I don’t know about you, but I have noticed the days are getting shorter. It hit me this morning as I was out the door before 5:45 am to catch the train to work. It was much darker. However, it turned out to be another warm and sunny day here in London. And even though I was cooking away in a kitchen all day, I couldn’t wait to get home to my own kitchen. Why? Hello!! It is Wednesday and you know it’s my favorite day of the week! I get to shower another fabulous female foodie with LOVE and get to try one of her recipes! My 96th Woman Crush Wednesday is the awesome Anita Lo! Continue reading

The 90th episode of Woman Crush Wednesday is here and it’s gonna be an awesome one! I am honoring Australia’s leading foodie, the amazing Donna Hay. I will be re-creating one of her recipes live on my Snapchat channel (username blissbakery) and will share photos and gush all over this gorgeous gourmet gal!
I realize that for some this whole Woman Crush Wednesday means something all together different than how I interpret it. But to each his/her own. For me this day is a chance to shine the light on a female chef creating some fabulousness in the culinary world. The truth is that even having to say “female” chef is indicative of the fact that when you hear the word chef you think of a man. While most of the Michelin star chefs are indeed men, I have taken this day to create a whole LOVE fest for a fabulous female foodie. I am excited to announce the 88th Woman Crush Wednesday honoree is the gorgeous gourmet gal Tess Ward!
Another Hump Day, another episode of Woman Crush Wednesday. The 87th to be exact. But today is quite special as the amazing Myrtle Allen is getting honored! Yes the wonderful grandmother of Ireland’s food tourism, the owner of Ballymaloe House and a recipient of a Michelin star! Myrtle Allen is now 94 years young and while living in County Cork Ireland as a farmer’s wife and rearing six children, she became responsible for putting fine dining and country living together in one sentence. I had the pleasure of getting to know her while I was a student of the Ballymaloe Cookery School (owned by her daughter in law and WCW honoree Darina Allen). And today I will be re-creating her fun recipe called “Balloons” from one of her cookery books! So up, up and away for the tutorial…
Welcome back to, you know it, my fav day of the week! Whoop whoop! Woman Crush Wednesday, where each week I choose a female chef and re-create one of her recipes live on Snapchat (username blissbakery). Not on Snapchat? No biggie. I will be sharing the recipe, photos, and information about my Woman Crush Wednesday recipient on this here blog. I call it a LOVE story. Because first of all I love LOVE! Secondly, because don’t think this #timesup is just about Hollywood gender disparity. Working in the culinary world I have seen it in this industry for far too long. That is why I created this special day back in September 2015 to honor and share the love for awesome female chefs kicking butt in the foodie world. And my 85th WCW is the phenomenal Suzanne Goin.
