Glistening white lights.

I totally lost my iPhone last week. Boo with an extra – ooooo. John and I went on a fantastic hike last Saturday, but with no packed lunch, we were famished driving home at 4:30pm. I barely remember our stop at Whole Foods until the first blueberry popped in my mouth. No excuse, but I think my starving stomach left my cell phone in the grocery basket. Being that it was a weekend, I didn’t even think to grab it until Sunday morning. So, John (who did not give me even one Molly!, during this whole process – god love him) got a spanking new iPhone. He cares more about the bells and whistles than me, and given that I lost dang thing in the first place, I happily took his old one. Well low and behold, the new iPhones take videos! John has a good bit of camera equipment, but nothing that he can whip out at the drop of a spatula. We have been talking about taking videos for a while now. At times, I want to show you how something works, and though I love the magic of word negotiation, certain techniques get lost in two-dimensionality. In our first stab at a video, I show you my growing tomato plants in a 44 second video called Meet My Porch Garden.

This week’s recipe is truly delicious and very easy. Don’t let the wordy instructions fool you. The inspiration came from a memorable meal I had at the most wonderful restaurant in Los Angeles called Inn of the Seventh Ray. If you are ever in LA, you must check out this delightful restaurant nestled deep in Topanga Canyon. This mystical Inn sits against a running brook, perfumed by it’s surrounding forest with canopy tents, delicate wrought iron chairs, fairytale pink tablecloths and glistening white lights strung with reckless abandon. It’s gorgeous and transportive. Not to mention the food is organic, sustainable and divine. I played and played with this carrot puree until I captured the bright orange color and creamy texture that I first experienced at the Inn.
