Wow! An Emmy Nomination!

Kind of an exciting day over here!!!

I just woke up to the news that I was nominated for an Emmy in their new category “Outstanding Culinary Host” for my show Good Food America on Veria Living. Such an honor and I really couldn’t be more excited. Yahooooooo! Let the Lattes flow!

Southpaw’s Organic Grill

Last time I was in Dallas, I went to visit my new friends, TJ and Reza, co-0wners of Southpaw’s Organic Grill.

I met TJ and Reza while I was filming my healthy travel food show, Good Food America. We did a great segment on their restaurant and had a lot of fun shooting there.

Now, Southpaw’s has become part of the usual rotation of places (amongst different Latte houses and, of course, Central Market) to visit when Super-sous and I travel to visit her parents (who live in Dallas).

If you’re in the Dallas area and are looking for a hearty and heart healthy meal – you gotta check it out!


Savor Saturday

With Lattes in hand, Super-sous and I are heading over to the Sunset Savor the Central Coast event. I’ll be cooking, speaking and signing my cookbook, Great Food Starts Fresh, at 3pm. And before that – we’ll be checking out our friend Aarti’s (from Aarti Paarti/Party) demo at Noon.

What else is cool about today? Tonight is the season finale of my show on Veria Living, Good Food America. I hit up an L.A. hotspot on tonight’s episode that is truly delicious – don’t miss it!

Finally, check out this recent interview by the Taste TV team whom I caught up with recently at the National Heirloom Expo!

Bun Lai and Miya’s Sushi on Good Food America

I am so excited for tonight’s episode of Good Food America which features my buddy Bun Lai and his sustainable sushi restaurant, Miyas Sushi.

Bun Lai is my sustainable seafood hero. When you have a moment, please grab your Latte and read all about him. We had a blast filming at his restaurant for the show and diving for seaweed and foraging for shore crabs. Bun is leading the pack when it comes to innovation and sustainable practices.


Need I say more: “On October 25, 2010 Bun Lai was honored as ‘Greatest Person of the Day’ by the Huffington Post for being an ‘exceptional individual who is confronting the country’s economic and political crises with creativity, generosity, and passion.'”

Enjoy this clip from tonight’s show and tune in this evening!

Clean Eating – Exploring Good Food

Happy Sunday!

I hope this message finds you well with a delicious Latte in hand.

This morning, I woke up to find that an interview I had done some months back has been published in Clean Eating Magazine all about good food and my new show, Good Food America.

Bonus? At the end there’ s a link for one of my delicious summer dishes from Great Food Starts Fresh – my spicy watermelon gazpacho – happy cooking!

Good Food America Tonight

Happy Saturday.

I trust that by now you have consumed your Latte and are all stocked up on fresh produce after a trip to your local farmers market.

As you make your way through the day, don’t forget to check out another new episode of Good Food America tonight on Veria Living!

Coming up… a visit to a Mexican restaurant in New Jersey. Mmmmm.
