Just a-peach-iating my last summer margarita

Summer? What summer! Man, time flies. Seems like I moved back to D.C. yesterday and yet I just had my three-month review as an account coordinator at Ketchum two days ago. Hard to believe how fast those three months of summer have gone, AND that some of those lovely D.C. rooftop bars will be shutting…

Jack of all Trades, Master of (the Sticky) Bun

There is no doubt that Mama Doser was definitely dubbed “Master of the Cinnamon Bun” by all family members, neighbors, and all her children’s sports teams. Every few weeks throughout my childhood, she would treat the family to a post-church batch of cinnamon buns for Sunday brunch. My brothers and I would really thank God for…

This DC restaurant is totally ra-duck-al, dude!

Nobody even says, “That place is radical, dude” anymore….but hey, I just did. It seemed fitting in order to describe this gorgeous restaurant in Georgetown with a warm, rustic vibe among good company. The culinary team at Blue Duck Tavern is very passionate about sourcing fresh, seasonal ingredients from regional farms to update their menus…

These macaroons will make you go (coco)nuts!

It’s funny because I have always loved the flavor of coconut but for quite sometime as a child, I never liked the texture of coconut flakes. It was kind of similar to my love for orange juice but the utter dislike of pulp. I could just never accept coconut flakes for who they were. Sorry, you little pieces of coconut greatness….

This dish is in-grain-ed in my soul forever…

Nothing beats mixing up the day-to-day peanut butter cinnamon overnight oats with a hearty Saturday brunch full of grains, veggies and spices. After an extremely fun-filled, social and a bit too pricey Fourth of July weekend, Bex was in for some down time this weekend. Laundry, cleaning, cooking, baking and more all made for a mental…

Bex’s Breakfast Burger

Greetings from Washington, DC! Man, it sure does feel good to be back here post-graduation and now with some time before I officially start working at Ketchum, I am really going to try to experiment in the kitchen with some foods I have been wanting to make for quite a while! First off, you should…

(Br-avo)cado salad for a nice spring appetizer!

I am always excited to connect with new chefs, food bloggers and/or cooking enthusiasts. Speaking with Chef Marie, the author of “Eating Clean in Costa Rica: Simple, Easy Recipes from the Kitchen of Blue Osa and Chef Marie” was such a pleasure. As the founder of Blue Osa, a yoga retreat and spa in Costa…

You’re a gran(d)-ola old bar, you’re a high-flying bar…

Fingers crossed that the weather man is right and it truly is heating up out there in time for Spring fest this weekend! The sun is shining and the fruity punches are being made, so what better way to enjoy some outdoor activities and music than with some easy and healthy snacks? Setton Farm’s new…

You butternut squash my dreams of eating this dish again…

We all have those moments in life when we want something so bad but instead of buying it for ourselves, we buy it for our best friend, sibling, cousin, mom, and maybe even dog, in hopes that we can just “borrow” it or live vicariously through that person. Well, my brothers and I got my…
