IN THE KITCHEN Homemade Hazelnut Milk

Have you ever made your own almond milk? I can promise you the results are so much better than the sort of grey, blah-tasting liquid you can get in a carton. And it's easy to make too! So when I stumbled upon this recipe in Squeaky Kitchen for hazelnut milk, I knew I had to give it a shot. Hazelnuts are one of my favorites, and mixed with a little agave, sea salt, and a pinch of cinammon, I think this homemade hazelnut milk is going to get high marks with Rumi Joon and Indi Joon too.Who knows, maybe it will even replace almond milk in our hearts. Give it a shot with me this weekend!

With love and nuttiness,



Hi Argan Beauties!

How cute is this little holiday gift? This little package of goodness is courtesy of my mom. Last Sunday, the LA Times printed some "wrapping paper." When she discovered that adorable picture of kids sledding on the other side of the paper, my mom decided to fold it over and make it part of her wrapping too. I'm obsessed! Do you have any fun eco wrapping tips? Do share!

With love and a bow on top,


JOSIE'S PICKS for Snuggling Up

It’s been a little brrrr here in Pennsylvania for this California girl! I’ve been cozying up here at the farm and at QVC headquarters, promoting my TSV. Despite the fact that I miss the warm weather back in L.A., there is something nice about getting warm next to a fire with goodies like fuzzy blankets and hot mugs of tea. Here are a few fun picks I found on Etsy for getting in that snuggly Autumn mood.

With love and snuggles,
