Baked Feta with Cherry, Bacon & Almonds

The warmer it gets, the less I cook.

At some point in the summer, all of our meals tend to take on a snacky, party-like feel where normal entrees and appetizers are replaced with elaborate cheese and charcuterie boards, platters of room temperature roasted vegetables, and enormous salads.

Flourless Orange Cauliflower Cake

I know...I know...this sounds totally insane (and maybe even a little bit gross?), but trust me on this! Everyone who has ever tasted this cake can not believe how good it is. And no, you definitely can not taste the cauliflower in it. I promise that all you'll taste is oranges, almonds, and sweet cake goodness.

This flourless orange cauliflower cake was one of the recipes I featured on a TV cooking segment about cauliflower recipes that I did on PIX11 Morning News here in NYC earlier this month. On the show, I covered everything from Cauliflower Fried Rice and Cauliflower Buffalo Wings, to this sweet cake.

Needless to say, the cake was the hit.

Cake and Cocktails with Maggy London

I love a beautiful dress! From fitted bodycon sheaths in every color to flirty floral sundresses, my closet is filled with them.

(Actually, it’s bursting. I had to setup a second wardrobe in our bedroom to deal with my dress overflow. Not sorry about this.)

If you ever see me in person (or TV! or Instagram!), the odds are high I’ll be wearing one. Hence my excitement when Maggy London, a NY-based fashion brand that I've been wearing for years, reached out to me about participating in their spring dress campaign!

Low-Carb Cauliflower Fried “Rice”

I was on the WPIX11 morning news today sharing a few cauliflower recipe ideas like this Low-Carb Cauliflower Fried "Rice." One the most popular recipes on this site is my cauliflower dirty rice recipe, but I've been meaning to share another easy twist that uses cauliflower rice.

Easy Coconut Blueberry Cake

We were originally going to go out for my dad's birthday last night, but he wasn't feeling well so we made it a casual night in instead. We all went over to my parents' house (Hudson, too!), ordered take-out and hung out in the kitchen eating and laughing until well past midnight.

When my mom told me about the change of plans that afternoon, I realized that I at least had the time to bake up a quick cake to bring along. I had to work with what I had, so took a look in the fridge and pantry and pulled together this easy Coconut Blueberry Cake. It's a variation of a cake I've made a lot of times using buttermilk, but with a few easy switches.

What to Wear to a Creative Conference

Conferences are a regular thing for those of us who work in creative industries. I attend at least a couple a year, and am currently getting ready to head to one of my favorites--the Hispanicize conference in Miami. This will be my third time attending this huge media conference that brings together Latino creatives and professionals from all around the US and Latin America.
