Halloween Graveyard Dip Recipe




It's almost that time of year when we don those costumes and binge of bite sized candy...because eating 12 individually wrapped Twix bars cannot be THAT bad... they're small!

Well, how about I give you a new recipe to add to your Haunting Hostess repertoire! Sure, we all love a bubbly, cheesy cauldron of Spinach and Artichoke dip but I want to share a healthy twist on this party table staple!

I teamed up with Stonefire to create this delicious "good-for-you" dip that pairs perfectly with their brand new Naan Crisps! Scroll down for the recipe!

Get Ready! Active Nation Day is Sunday!



As you might know by now, I have quite the love affair with the Lorna Jane brand. There is something about the vibrant colors, inspiring slogans, oh and stellar quality, that made me fall for their fitness gear! Lucky for me, this brand-crush has developed into a great relationship with Lorna Jane and I am thrilled that I've been invited to participate in this year's Active Nation Day! Check out the details below and join me on Sunday in Santa Monica for the fun!

Oh! Scroll down to see an awesome "Workout Wednesday" routine from LA's Hottest Trainer (and a role model of mine) Christine Bullock!

Caramelized Peach Salad Recipe




I recently recreated a dish from one of my favorite spots in Los Angeles. Call me hokey, but I LOVE Villa Blanca in Beverly Hills. Sure, their food isn't as stellar as it used to be which if you're a fan of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, you would know that there was a huge blow-out between Lisa Vanderpump, the restaurant's owner and their head chef. You can get filled in on that drama via Bravo.

Anyway, there used to be a salad on their menu that was out of this world. It had everything I loved, fruit, fresh mozzarella, prosciutto, and a dressing with some serious spice! It was the perfect combination of flavors.
