Adventures in Cooking

There’s something nostalgic about Eva Marie Kosmas’ photography. The light is moody, the table styled just so and each cake crumb effortlessly, yet perfectly in place. Did we mention we want to gobble up every recipe that gets posted?! We’re talking send-in-the-stretchy pants-it’s-time-to-feast style. Speaking of, could we get a lifetime supply of those PB & J Pavlovas over here, please?!

NJ in LA

Whether you’ve met Natalie in person or just enjoy clicking through her tweets, you know this girl is one feisty, fourth-generation Mexican American Angeleno reppin’ some serious SGV pride.

Her soon-to-launch project “Eating With Rappers” has got us giddy, and we always look forward to her interviews with the hip-hop elite at their favorite food joints.
