The C Word

You have likely heard of the “C Word”.  And it probably conjures up a reaction. For some it might mean one thing and for others it’s something else. Today I would like to share with you a different kind of “C Word” and I believe this one is destructive as well. Continue reading

Foodie Fieldtrip Friday: The Future’s So Brighton!

Yep the future’s so Brighton, I gotta wear shades!  A little take on an oldie but a goodie, but that song was in my head when I hit the laptop to share my latest gastronomic expedition with you.  It is hard to believe I have lived in London this long and never made the one hour train journey to Brighton on England’s south coast!  It’s been on my mind to do for ages, but various reasons have always circumvented the plans.  So I was delighted that this week’s Foodie Fieldtrip Friday allowed me to soak up some sun, listen to the crashing waves and indulge in total iconic Brighton Beach eats!

Recipe: Woman Crush Wednesday

Welcome back to Woman Crush Wednesday! My favorite day of the week where I choose a female chef and recreate one of her recipes live on Snapchat.  And of course this here is the LOVE story for our one and only gourmet gal!  This week’s honoree is the best selling cookery book writer and world famous food blogger Deb Perelman.  Her blog Smitten Kitchen has been the gold standard for food bloggers practically since its inception back in 2006. Her prolific posts of incredible sweet and savory foods have ignited flames in the hearts of home cooks from coast to coast! Continue reading

May the 4th Be With You!

This year is like 4th of July 2.0.  What I mean by that is, it’s the second year we are in London for this special holiday. Since Americans abroad don’t get this holiday off work, celebrating can be unique. And especially this year, as I am taking Snapchat on a very unique adventure. If you’d like to join in my username is blissbakery.  It is a surprise so I won’t say much now. But I will leave you with last year’s post for the day that is in it. There is even a foodie recipe for you, since food is of the utmost importance in your festive fourth of July gathering. Continue reading

Crazy for Canada

Having lived in America most of my life, I’ve been lucky enough to travel  north to Canada on a few occasions. The first was to Montreal in 1987 to film a Suzuki Samurai commercial. I loved what I saw of the city but didn’t get to tour around too much because of work. The second time I visited Canada was to take my son to an ice hockey camp in Logan Lakes. I remember it was gorgeous and woodsy. And my third visit was with Hubby to Vancouver, a very hip and diverse culture with stunning natural beauty. So I was delighted to have the opportunity to return to Canada and soak up as much as I could in one week. Continue reading

Recipe: Woman Crush Wednesday

It is great to be back home after three weeks of traveling in America and Canada. I’ve missed doing my Woman Crush Wednesday cooking tutorials on Snapchat (username blissbakery) and sharing the love on here as well. Today is the 64th WCW recipient and this chef is an icon. One of the most influential people in the foodie world, in fact she even ignited an entire food revolution. Alice Waters is the chef and creator of the famous Chez Panisse in Berkley, California. I had the pleasure of eating at her restaurant which is famous for its locally grown and organic ingredients. Alice Waters is called the “Mother of American Food” for a reason and has championed the Edible Schoolyard Project  which is now in over 5,000 schools. Continue reading

My Bite of the Big Apple

Though I left New York over a week ago, I wanted to post a round up of the visit there before too much time passes.  Having lived and worked in New York for three years and to go back there again as a tourist was a unique experience unto itself.  While it is a city with a personality like no other, it is steeped in history and rich in culture. Yet it is always changing and there is vitality in its newness. So I visited places I had been before and saw some spots for the first time. And all of it was with massive gratitude.  Continue reading
