Summer Sport


Hope everyone had a great weekend. I wanted to share a winnner recipe I made last night that my sister recommended. I made the Jon & Vinny’s Fusilli alla Vodka (I subbed penne) along with my Chicken Marsala. The two dishes complemented each other really well. It was a relatively simple dinner that everyone loved!

Love them or hate them but there is no denying that the sporty Teva-esque sandal is having a fashion moment.

Mes Filles

img_5126img_5292Several months ago I was grocery shopping and spotted a woman in a beautiful colorful dress. I approached her and asked her where she got it and she said “I design them.” Voila..that’s how I discovered Mes Filles.

Local designer Cristen Kauffman designs and manufactures her Sadie dress right here in Los Angeles. Her goal with Mes Filles is to celebrate the uniqueness of each and every woman. I love the simple silhouette and the beautiful prints she uses. I’m wearing the Zippy in the above picture; it’s one of my most comfortable dresses I have in my closet. To shop all the different Sadie dresses click here.

A portion of Mes Filles proceeds goes to Africa Schoolhouse, No Kid Hungry, Laura’s House, and Minnesota Freedom Fund. All charities that support women and children in need.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Sweet Potato Chips

Sweet Potato Chips

  • 2 medium sized sweet potatos

  • salt to taste

  3. Place your sweet potatoes on the sheet tray and toss with olive oil making sure to evenly coat. 
  4. Place in the oven and bake at 300°F for about 2 hours. *All ovens are different so I recommend checking them at 45 mins. If the chips are getting too brown then reduce temperature in the oven.

  6. Take them out of the oven when crisp but not too brown and sprinkle with salt.
