Spice It Up this Fall!

Cool weather is an automatic reason for warm, spicy food with tons of flavor! We headed to the pantry to see what recipe we could cure our spicy craving! We turned to Mighty Spice Express Cookbook by John Gregory Smith for this yummy soup, Vietnamese Bun Cha!

Mmmm, warm and delicious! We can't wait to make this to warm us up as the cool weather rolls in. We love these bowls with fleur de lis on them for serving. Happy Cooking!

Snack on These!

Cookies are one of the best snacks; sweet, portable, and extra delicious over a scoop of ice cream! We took another one of our Pantry favorites, Breakfast, Lunch, & Tea by Rose Carrarini and scoured the trendy pages for a yummy cookie recipe that is as unique as it is delicious. We came across these Almond, Cinnamon, & Meringue Biscuits and were hooked. Delicious over warm vanilla ice cream, no? IMG_0099 copyIMG_0106 copyCookieBiscuits

A Summer Pineapple Granita.

Nothing beats the heat like a delicious cold treat! Ice cream & popsicles are on the top of our lists (hence our obsession with our neighbor, Sweet Rose Creamery). Lately, we've been spotting a few out-of-the-icebox sweet treats pop-up, like the granita. We were definitely intrigued! The Home Made cookbook in our pantry has the perfect simply recipe for a Pineapple Granita, mmm!

Our Spotlight: Sweet Rose Creamery!

We're pretty sure all of SoCal would scream for ice cream at this amazing spot! This week's vendor spotlight is Sweet Rose Creamery, a ice cream & coffee shop with three locations in Southern California and the most innovative ice cream flavors we've  ever tasted.

SweetRose   Josh Loeb & Zoe Nathan teamed up with esteemed chef Shiho Yoshikawa to launch Sweet Rose Creamery in 2010, giving LA some extremely bold & fun flavors to be excited about. They make their ice cream every day on site in small batches using only the best ingredients, like organic milk and cream from Clover Organic Farms and eggs from Chino Valley Ranchers. They're extremely focused on buying & supporting local producers & farmers to support and the community & utilized the ingredients in their freshest forms.

SweetRose2You'll never see them use any stabilizers in our ice cream bases, and we never use pre-mix bases for any of our products. Pasteurizing on site and starting recipes from scratch allows  Chef and Co-Owner, Shiho Yoshikawa, to have control over the variety and quality of the ingredients she chooses. Get this.. they  also make our own hand-made cones, frozen novelties (ike bonbons!!), cakes, pies, and toppings in house from scratch (except for sodas, sprinkles & coco nibs).
