It’s almost time for Turkey Day!!! But I got to cel­e­brate a lit­tle ear­ly this year. 🙂 My friend Can­dy host­ed a Wild Turkey night this past Sat­ur­day with a potluck Thanks­giv­ing din­ner and a whiskey tast­ing all in one! It was the per­fect Fall cel­e­bra­tion with friends. Many of my clos­est friends here in LA, well I con­sid­er them my LA fam­i­ly, and peo­ple I had nev­er met were both there.

As you know I am total­ly and com­plete­ly focused on sea­son­al eat­ing, but for some rea­son I got a mas­sive crav­ing for brus­sel sprouts this week and had been want­i­ng to make Brus­sel Sprout soup ever since I got the inspi­ra­tion flip­ping through a cook­book at Le Pain Quo­ti­di­en where I vis­it my friend Lau­ren when I need some solace from office. Okay, I guess it’s real­ly not all that sur­pris­ing con­sid­er­ing I could eat an entire pound of brus­sel sprouts in one sit­ting if I didn’t con­trol myself. I didn’t Read more […]
