Saturday Loves 24

Photographer Ty Keennon | Manarola, Italy

I hope your weekend is off to a great start!  

This past week has been a bit slow for me…I returned home safely from Cinque Terre and London.  It was an amazing adventure; however, it’s taken me longer than usual to recover from jet lag.  

Pictured above, Manarola, Cinque Terre, Italy photographed during sunset.  This is my favorite image from Cinque Terre, as it is the first time I composed and photographed a panoramic image and experimented using graduated neutral density filters.

Should you desire to see additional photos from my travels, please visit my Instagram account.  Meanwhile, listed below are a few inspiring links from awesome bloggers and websites.

Wishing you a joyous weekend!  

Greek Salad | photographer Eva Kosmas Flores

My favorite dishes to cook must comprise depth and layers of  flavor, can be prepared in 45 minutes or less, and utilize easy to source ingredients.  I can’t wait to try the Greek Salad by Eva Kosmas Flores, what a lovely side dish.  

Luckily for me, heirloom tomatoes are still abundantly available throughout Los Angeles.

Honestly Yum | Za atar Chicken

Honestly Yum (my favorite food blog) created a Roast Chicken recipe that features Za’atar, a Middle Eastern spice blend.   Za’atar is comprised of dried herbs, sesame seeds, and sumac. 

I’m looking forward to preparing this tantalizing recipe next weekend.  Organic sumac may be purchased from
