If you were lucky enough to have dined at The Rose Café in Venice (the old Rose Café, not the new one that opened in 2015), I hope you were able to partake in one of their best dishes – The Lamb Burger. My hubby worked for Digital Domain for two decades, and The Rose Café was pretty much the cafeteria for the DD employees – up until 2013 when Digital Domain moved over to Playa Vista. I’ve eaten @ The Rose Cafe hundreds of times, and my favorite dish hands down was The Lamb Burger. Chicken Under Brick was pretty spectacular, but the Lamb Burger was a must!
I tried to get the recipe from the chef, but to no avail, and I continuously badgered the servers trying to figure out what the ingredients were, and I thought I had it figured out so off to my testing kitchen to create a recipe that matched the heavenly goodness of The Rose’s recipe. I probably made about 8-10 different versions before E, my official taste tester said, “THIS IS IT, this one, this one is BETTER than The Rose’s!”
Now when we’re out at other restaurants, E won’t even order the burger because he says he knows it’ll pale to mine ~ so sweet! That’s my hubby! Love him! And by the way, E named this recipe, and I love what he came up with 😉

One of our favorite purse/bag designers is Michael Kors. We love his simplistic style, with great quality products. We tend to shy away from brands that scream their name on their products. We both own the Jet Set Travel bag, and we love it! My mom owns it in the camel color (Kors calls it Luggage), and I own it in the black.
They’re perfect work bags! I have a 13″ Macbook with a case that fits in the middle laptop compartment. My mom’s Macbook Air also fits with plenty of space. It’s got 4 great pockets on the inside, 2 on either side, that can fit things from your phone to a few lipsticks. The laptop compartment also has a pocket attached to it that I like to slide my iPad, or small notebook into.
It’s also a great bag to travel with because of all of the pockets. In addition to the four inner pockets, there’s one zippered pocket on the inside for important things, or whatever you’d normally put into your purse zippered pocket.

My mom and I took a trip to LACMA (The Los Angeles County Museum of Art) in Los Angeles. They have this famous area, what you see below, of a ton of beautifully crafted lampposts! We had such a great time and got some fun shots of this simple red Tee Shirt Dress from Target!
I can’t explain how much I adore simple pieces of clothing. I love simple tees, basic tanks and dresses etc. because they go with everything, and you never really have to think about what matches. You can throw on any pair of jeans/pants of your choice with a simple tee and your good to go!
In this case I grabbed a super simple tee-shirt dress by Mossimo, my favorite pair of wedges and my black hat!
If you’re looking for something to do in West Hollywood, LACMA is really an awesome place to go! Not only is the museum itself gorgeous, the outside is fun to take pictures in front of!
What I’m wearing: Mossimo Tee Shirt Dress and Basic Nude Wedges (Cathy Jean, where I bought these, is no longer in business )
Accessories: Black Fedora, Apple Watch, Assortment of gold accessories from Forever 21
