As a dietitian, home cook, and enthusiast of all-things-delicious, I'm often asked, "so what do YOU eat?" Here's a blog to answer that very question! My hope is that you'll find (even just a little) inspiration from some of my favorite recipes, restaurants, party-ideas and food musings for your own happy, healthy, food-loving lifestyle.

Fresh Pick of the Week: Apricots

California apricots are in season now! Apricots are a sweet-and-tart fruit from the plum family, with a short peak season from May-July in California, lasting through August other parts of the country. While they're an easy, low-calorie and vitamin A-rich treat on their own, apricots are also delicious...

Enjoy!

The Hart and the Hunter

Butter Biscuits & Condiments and Marinated Olives
Last weekend, I checked out The Hart and the Hunter in the Palihotel on Melrose. The food had a rustic feel with Southern soul, and wowed our party of three. The highlight for me was sharing a pre-dinner bottle of wine (purchased from the hotel's coat closet in the lobby) alongside the restaurant's can't-miss Butter Biscuits, all enjoyed outside in the Hotel's courtyard. We also loved our other shared plates: Brussels Sprouts, Kale Salad, Shrimp & Grits and Hanger Steak. 

Looking forward to my next trip to this neighborhood favorite!
