Everything You Think You Know About Chick(pea)s Is Wrong.

These cookies are so good, they might cause you to question everything you know about baking, flour, Veganism, and possibly life itself. Even YOU wouldn’t be able to tell these cookies are mostly comprised of garbanzo beans. They would even

In Praise of Sweatpants. With apologies to Cindy Crawford.

I like to spend most of my time at home dressed like a new mom. AKA someone who doesn’t have time to look all that presentable (sorry, Husband). I am not a new mom, or a mom at all (that

Korean Spas: They’re Not Messing Around

I have always wanted to check out a Korean spa, but was hesitant because I feared they wouldn’t be user-friendly, as I hate being bad at things. Turns out my fears were totally justified.  But alas, I was ultimately lured

Turkish Towels For The Win

I have never uttered or written the phrase “For the win” until now: I was saving it for something special. And that something special has presented itself in the form of Traditional Turkish Towels. Turkish Towels are also known as

Rockstar Feta, Sundried Tomato & Rosemary Spread

I don’t use the word “Rockstar” lightly, people. I should be charging thousands of dollars for this recipe but, no, it’s yours for free. It’s so good that when I dropped and shattered a freshly made jar all over my

Favorite ETSY Finds, Part 1

I so enjoy Etsy. You never know what you might find inside this Cyber Den of Uniquity. Like these 2 barstools I purchased last year and re-upholstered in this gorgeous slate grey leather. Wait a minute? (Shameless Bragging Alert) Are those

Look what’s back!

When the folks at Shu Uemura stopped carrying their amazing eyelash curlers in the U.S., I was sad. Very sad. But look what is back with a vengeance….the best eyelash curler ever. And I am not kidding. I curled my

Hey there Fond Nephew ❤️ 🐕 🐶 #pompom #instapom #pomsofIG #pomeranian #pomeranianpuppy
This piece is entitled “Two Pigs”. Pig 1 (henceforth known as Dog Pig) on the left ate the entirety of his mom’s lunch today when she got up to answer the door. Mom’s lunch included many delicious onions she had patiently cooked in a garlic & wine reduction. Onions are toxic to Dog Pigs. His mom then called the vet who instructed her to bring Dog Pig in immediately for vomit induction & blood work. Dog Pig is home now and seems to be not only feeling okay but looking a bit smug. What he doesn’t know yet is that he will have to do many chores around the house to work off the $200 vet bill.
It’s a @pottedstore Christmas! ❤️

SO EXCITED for this years Happy Pawlidays event on December 15th! Pico & I will be working the Home Dog LA table - bring your furry kids & get their photo taken with the Real Life Santa. It’s a totally fun, crazy event filled with tons of adorable pets - please come play?
Met this stunner at the Dog Park. #shibainu #shibainusofinstagram #mansbestfriend #LAdogs
By looking at him, you’d think Pico was on his feet for 7 hours today prepping for Thanksgiving. BUT NOPE THAT WAS ME.
Check out this black beauty. So majestic.
This seems like a happy photo, but in reality these guys are bathed in the eerie light the Malibu area fires are casting. So very sad for all the humans, pets & wild animals affected. Devastating.
#TheForce is strong in this one. #jedidog
It’s me bitches?
You guys. The guest room redo is complete. Come visit. ✈️🚗🚲🛶🚁🚤⛵️🚢
