The Ultimate Foodporn: Eggslut in DTLA

Originally posted on The Love Pug:
When I first discovered Eggslut on Instagram, I was surprised that Heaven on Earth had such a raunchy name. Nestled in Downtown LA just near the Fashion District, this popular sandwich stand is the perfect place to find some good, dirty #yolkporn. Sure, the menu is small and yes, you will probably have to wait in a line that wraps around the entire kitchen. But Eggslut is the kind of place that you have to try at least once. And that’s coming from someone who has probably ventured to DTLA maybe half a dozen times in her entire life. This teeny open restaurant is located in the Grand Central Market, along with everything from fresh produce to an organic coffee stand to authentic Mexican mole sauce. I definitely recommend bringing a few people not only so you can order more things, but so while someone waits in line you can stroll through the market and scope out the other delicious foods available. Plus the guy who works at the coffee…

NYC Spotlight: The Stanton Social

I absolutely love brunch! Bye breakfast. I’ve decided it’s the most important meal of life. I recently had an epic brunch at what is now my favorite spot, The Stanton Social. It’s the kind of place I imagine the likes of Chuck Bass and Serena Van Der Woodsen would frequent causally. The restaurant itself is gorgeous. I felt cooler just stepping inside because that’s how trendy, yet chill, but definitely unique and swanky in a very New-York-hipster type of way the interior design is. The restaurant is three floors and “features a thirty-foot glowing wine wall displaying over 2,000 bottles of wine in a herringbone patter, fringe-covered walls, fine lizard skin banquettes, leather handrails, and belt strapped pillows, all of which subtly tip their hat to the luxury and glamour found in the textiles and fashions of the 1940’s.” So yeah, it’s real nice in there! The food is absurdly good and shareable, which is amazing. I feel like I ate the whole menu that morning because it was a non-stop parade of delicious…

My Obsession Monday: Coconut Bake

Warning: I’m about to brag a little about my husband. 😉 My man is pretty hot and he’s been working his butt off weight training all summer. He definitely motivates me to keep going. Gains, yo! Because he’s working on building muscle, he eats a lot of protein and because he loves me, he gets up most mornings and makes us breakfast. I am sooooo lucky! However, there are days when he wants to sleep in or I have extra bananas I need to use so I have an easy breakfast alternative to our usual eggs and bacon (at least for me – he’s allergic to coconut – yes, his life is a little bit darker because of it). Drumroll please. *drumroll* Coconut Flour Breakfast Bake! Photo credit: Evan at thewannabechef.net I found this recipe on Pinterest, of course. It is super easy to make, very quick, nutritious (low carb, gluten free, AND dairy free), and tastes a little like banana cake. FOR BREAKFAST! Seriously, it takes about 5 minutes…
