one year

Yesterday, Richie and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary!

What an adventure the last year has been. We got married, we packed up our things and left our jobs, and moved to Los Angeles. We’ve slowly been settling into our new life here and I must say, it has been an amazing year.

Last weekend we celebrated by taking a weekend trip to the Santa Ynez Valley, which is the wine country outside of Santa Barbara. We took a wine tour (first time), tried tons of great wine, learned a little along the way and I’m ready to go back this weekend. :)

We finished off the celebrating with an amazing dinner at Fig & Olive, a restaurant that I’ve been wanting to visit since we moved into the neighborhood. The food, service and setting were all outstanding and I’m so glad we finally got there. (The Marzipan Cake with Olive Oil Gelato, Candied Orange Olive Oil & Toasted Almonds was life-changing.)

See you Thursday with a recipe!

    I was really concerned about the traffic so we got out of town by 3pm, it wasn’t bad at all – and we didn’t have to take the 405 which certainly helped. :)

    I was just thinking yesterday that you are my best bet in recreating that dessert. You better come to LA so you can try it in the flesh!

    Your salmon alvacodo omelet looks amazing. Where the ingredients listed for a single serving or two? How many calories per omelet?
