Listening to your Heart. 

Listening to your Heart. Since becoming a mom, so many things have changed. My daily routines, the way I work, play, shop, what used to be Sunday Fundays are now Sunday run errand days, and even everyday tasks like eating, showering and basic self-care have altered dramatically. Mostly these things have changed because of time, and simply not having enough of it. Having a baby…

  • Vibes are 💯 at this cozy WeHo rooftop spot.
  • S A L A D  all  D A Y • one of my favorite things to make is a perfectly curated salad with all the freshest lettuces, herbs, a really good shaved parm, and tossed with a bright citrus vinaigrette. Salads don’t have to be rabbit food, they can be hearty, decadent and even an entire meal. I especially love that the foundation of a really good salad comes rooted from the earth.
This salad is a nightly go-to and crowd pleaser. Wild rocket, radicchio, torn herbs like mint, basil and parsley, grano padano cheese and gently dressed with lemon, EVOO, sea salt and cracker pepper. Need some protein? Easy. Add grilled chicken and  dinner is served. Don’t forget a glass of ever so slightly chilled Pinot Noir. Yum.
Tell me foodies- What are some of your fav everyday salads to make? 🥗
