Recipe: Woman Crush Wednesday

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.

Recipe: Woman Crush Wednesday

Today’s Woman Crush Wednesday is coming to you from the U.S.A.  I’m here visiting family and enjoying a playcation with my granddaughters.  Being back in the country of my birth makes it a perfect time to honor Christina Tosi.  Not only is she the 82nd WCW recipient but she is also the creator and chef of Milk Bar.  This world famous bakery headquartered in NYC has 8 locations now.  With two cookbooks under her belt, her recipes are very American in their roots.  But Christina is super innovative in her approach to being a pastry chef. She is a fabulous role model for women in the culinary world and I am so excited to honor her today and re-create one of her recipes here and live on Snapchat.  My username is blissbakery if you’d like to come check it out!  Continue reading

Today is the 81st episode of Woman Crush Wednesday and you might recognize the honoree. Londoner Sally Butcher is not only well known for her fabulous cookery books, but also her amazing shop in Peckham called Persepolis and the darling cafe that adjoins it. In fact, if you watch my Foodie Fieldtrip Friday segment on my Snapchat (username blissbakery) you won’t be surprised that I have chosen Sally as my WCW. Just two weeks ago I visited and feasted on some of her amazing Persian food.  And I purchased a key ingredient for today’s awesome cooking tutorial. Continue reading

Recipe: Head Banging Smoothie

I can’t believe it myself, but it is the last day of Smoothie Scentral Week.  That flew by didn’t it? I hope you have been inspired to up your smoothie game and try some of these or make up your own recipes. All you need is a blender and your fav bits and pieces to pop in there. It is healthy, it is fun and much more cost effective then frequenting your local smoothie juice bar. So for the final day, I had to share a banging smoothie! Since I also did a tutorial on my Snapchat account (username blissbakery) I had to have the perfect musical accompaniment. Which also inspired the name of this super delicious liquid awesomeness!
