My Birthday Trip to Greece & Paris wouldn’t be complete without all the food I was determined to consume.  In spite of the large Greek community in Southern California, I wasn’t really up to date on what I should expect to eat in while I was in Greece [aside from Gyros, of course, which ironically […]

Marble.  Softer than a baby’s butt.  Hard enough to withstand the test of time.  Slick when wet [this description will be important in a bit].  I’ve never been in a country who used more marble than they do in Greece.  Beautiful material to work with when it is in your kitchen.  Not so beautiful when […]

On Saturday, May 14 over 40 bloggers from the Los Angeles area will come together to donate their time, money, and baked goods towards a common goal of raising funds to fight childhood hunger.

“Hello”, Greece! This is one place where I never imagined myself to be – cost, time, and effort…and all the other excuses I gave myself.  Then, one evening at the end of last year, I met up with my new friend, the talented Heather of Heather Christo for drinks.  She painted such an amazing picture […]

“We all know that this trip is really Jenny’s Trip that we’ve all been invited to,” my boss joked.  I will concede that I might treat my events as if they were my personal party/vacation/gathering.  That’s only because I pour my heart and soul into these meetings because the people I work for care enough […]

I’m just tired of hearing it.  If I hear it again, I may actually scream out loud. “Mexico is such a dangerous place to travel to now.” Sure, there are places in Mexico that are not “safe” places to travel to right now and should be avoided but resort towns aren’t the tops on my […]

It’s taken me several days to write this. I’ve already read so many blogs who so eloquently issued their plea for support.  Words have failed me. The horror and tragedy of all that has transpired has left me huddled into a ball of uselessness. I didn’t grow up in Japan, my only connection to that […]

Last month, I received some sourdough starter from my friend from High School, Sari.  Some of you  may have seen some clips of Sari’s 4 year old daughter teaching us various cooking skills [via].  This sourdough starter actually comes from Germany over 50 years ago and [if I got my story straight] was gifted […]
