We spent Valentine's Day shooting our cover at a Malibu beach house... and what better to do then prep for brunch for everyone? We were certainly privileged yesterday, and being right on the beach made it extra beautiful.
Savour this Moment made 'beet cured salmon spread with greens and a lemon dill creme friache.' One bite of this sent us to the roof. It was so delicious, and the blends of the other foods really topped this seafood!
Again, Savour this Moment's 'red quinoa roasted vegetable salad' with their own special 'thai chile cilantro dressing.' Couldn't help but finish this entire dish amongst the dozen of us. Healthy and delicious.
This can definitely be enjoyed hot or cold, we found. The 'shakshuka (middle eastern egg and tomato dish)' is really a brunch charmer. Some of us on set said they didn't even like tomatoes, but this changed their minds (or this dish was just everything perfect and more).
Buttermilk, Inc even came to whip up their red velvet and ube pancakes. We've tasted pancakes all of our lives, but never have they tasted this delicious!
What we drank? Almond Milk LA! They came in different flavors - pure, cocoa, honey, and lavender. Each of them our favorite...is that possible? They were certainly refreshing and absolutely yummy with all the cookies and cakes we ate (no regrets, it was Valentine's!).
As always, we must have Sugar Dayne's custom cookies everywhere we go. Look how sweet these conversation hearts were! And because our cover girl's name is Krysten, they drew her name on a handful of the cookies!
La Monarch Bakery's strawberry shortcake... Need we say anything more? Not only were they busy on Valentine's Day, but they were kind enough to set aside our order.
And their chocolate covered strawberries! Valentine's Day is not complete without these.
Sucre Shop's adorable utensils and their pretty straws (pictured below). They were Valentine's Day themed, and had our names all over these!
One of our favorites, Sara of Matchbox Kitchen, baked and decorated this ombre cake (with our Zooey-teal color!) and even made that Krysten topper. She was so sweet! And this cake was ridiculously delicious!
