How to outsmart traffic!!

I tried to go Downtown LA a couple of weeks ago and it took me almost 2 hours which even for crazy traffic here is a lot!!! A friend of mine told me to download the app called Waze. It is literally a huge time saver! It gives you the best route to get you to your destination and adapts along the way if traffic gets too busy!!! I believe it works everywhere, not just here!

This is my month of discoveries! One of my amazing friend just opened up a nail salon in Brentwood and created her own non toxic polish brand called Côte!! I tried it out and felt as if I was in South of France somewhere. The decor is flawless, service is great, it is not too expensive and you even get a glass of rosé during the treatment!!! They sell a bunch of fun products and books and candles! I think this is just the beginning of a great adventure as other location are schedule to open soon!

Le Mervetty!!!

I grew up in Europe where pastry is synonym with deliciousness!!! One of my favorite one is called "Le Merveilleux" made of meringue, whipped cream and chocolate chips all over!!! Pure heaven!!!!! I just discovered that a pastry shop called "Le Mervetty" opened up in Beverly Hills offering a variety of this same amazing dessert! I went to try it out, and it lives up to my souvenir! And my kids devoured them, it was a huge hit!!

Amazing smells!!

I just found out that Dyptique opened up a boutique in Los Angeles, I can't wait to go and try it out!!! These products are perfectly balanced, the smell is subtle enough that it floats into the house without being too present! I think the candles Figuier and Baies are my favorites!!!!

Heads up!!!!

It is an app on my iPhone and the whole family loves it! It is the fun and hilarious game from Ellen DeGeneres that she plays on her show. From naming celebrities, to singing, to silly accents, guess the word on the card that's on your head from your friends' clues before the timer runs out! 
Between kids parties or adults one, this game has brought lots of fun and excitement! Even my 4 years old enjoys playing with it!!!!

Yummy gluten free chocolate brownies!!!

It is not completely guilt free because it still has some kind of sugar it is, but let's say this is as "healthy" as can be! I learned it from my cooking class with Pamela Salzman (I've written about her before, you should check her blog weekly, so interesting!)
It will seem strange because it has zucchini in it, but believe me that kids have no clue about that and they thought it was the best chocolate cake ever!!!
Anyway, here is the recipe:
1 cup of creamy almond butter
1/3 cup of maple syrup or raw honey
1/4 raw cacao
1/4 tsp fine sea salt
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp of baking soda
1 1/2 cups of shredded zucchini
1 cup of dark or semi sweet chic chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. grease 9x9 inch pan.
Combine almond butter, maple syrup, cacao powder, salt, egg, vanilla and baking soda until smooth. Stir in zucchini and chocolate chips. Pour into pan and bake for approx 35-45 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.

Enjoy while it is warm!! It is so yummy I am going to bake another one right now :)
