Almond Pulp Brownies

I guess it’s getting a little over the top, this love of all things almonds. It has gotten to the point that I was pretty sure I’d already made a video for these seriously insane Almond Pulp Brownies and had to check the archives of my blog to make sure. Typing in “almonds” as a… Read more »

Curried Veggie Chickpea Stew

There’s a trend as far as my cooking is concerned. For a recipe to be Erica-approved it usually has the following attributes: Must offer some form of convenience, whether it be minimal chopping, less dirty dishes, or time-saving (like the slow-cooker) Must pack in as much good stuff as possible (like plants, or weird shit like… Read more »

Millennials-Featured

I LITERALLY Love You, Millennials!

If you haven’t noticed, I’m a Millennial. Like the epitome of a Millennial. I got coddled and praised as a child and now I’m all those cliches you’ve heard…I jump from job to job, I expect praise too often, I’m pretty gosh-darned entitled, and I overshare A LOT on social media. Frankly, I LOVE my… Read more »

Rainbow Slaw with Tahini Dressing

  Summer is inching closer and to me that screams SLAW! I love slaws, of all shapes and sizes, especially when they include all the colors of the rainbow! Try this Rainbow Slaw with Tahini Dressing from Lunch Box Bunch! What can you bring a little color to this week?  

700-Days

700 Days Old, No Shame

Yesterday, the 2-year-old I take care of fell off a spinny swing at the park. His 4-year-old sister spun him fast. I watched him fall. It wasn’t really a fall, more like a slightly failed attempt at getting off the contraption. He landed pretty lightly on the squishy playground floor. But then he started screaming,… Read more »

Pride

My sweet, dear friend Taylor recently became a contributor to Pride.com. Here is her first video seeking to define PRIDE. Tay’s video got me thinking about pride and what it means to me. “Pride is having the courage to say: This is who I am. This is what I want. And I’m going to go… Read more »

Flower-Goddesses

New Jersey Flower Goddesses

This past weekend I traveled to the East Coast to celebrate the engagement of a beautiful couple who totally and completely love and vibe with each other. For the most part, the folks at the party were from New York City, though my Cali crew joined the ranks of other out-of-towners from beautiful destinations like… Read more »

Defending-Almonds

Defending Almonds PLUS Almond Meal Cookies!

I’ve built a bit of a reputation for being pretty PRETTY into almonds–almond milk, almond pulp, almond meal. It comes as no surprise that when news hit of the exorbitant amount of water required to grow a single California almond, people were clamoring to alert me. Yo, we’re in a humongo drought here in CA,… Read more »

Taco Pickles

I eat tacos pretty much all the time. I’m lucky to be in a city where there’s good tacos on every corner. My favorite thing about taco trucks, besides the tacos, is all the different pickled toppings to choose from…radishes, carrots, onions and cilantro, peppers. So these homemade Taco Pickles from Eva Kolenko are really rocking my world… Read more »

DTLA

Wandering to Find Balance

I burnt myself out and lost my balance in the last week or two. Finishing the Mindful American pilot was such an accomplishment, but I pushed so hard I made myself sick and exhausted. It’s a common feeling for so many of us, to just go go go. I felt like I couldn’t do anything… Read more »
