If you’re looking for a way to beat the summer heat, it’s inside this adorable gelato shop in La Jolla! Wonderful service, gorgeous views & delicious flavors await you. Bobboi offers several dairy free options everyday. My go-to order is dark chocolate & strawberry but occasionally I’ll sample a seasonal flavor that changes my mind! Most recently, I sampled watermelon & mango. Both flavors were divine! This is a must try if you’re in the area!
Outdoor summer movies are in full swing here in Southern California. The “I love SD” summer movie series begins tonight at the Headquarters at 8pm! It’s a free event. Just bring your own chair, popcorn and blanket! You might just see me there in a snow suit! It gets chilly, make sure you’re prepared. Paid parking is available at Seaport Village. There are many restaurants to choose from in the area. Puesto is my personal favorite. I can’t get enough of their guacamole!
Can’t make it tonight? Here’s a list of other summer outdoor movies…

If you’re in the Southern California area this Spring, you are in for a real treat. The rains have brought the most beautiful Super Bloom! These photos were taken at Walker Canyon in Lake Elsinore. It’s an easy drive up the 15 North & about an hour outside of San Diego. Take the Lake Street exit & head straight up the hill for the best views. Don’t forget to tag me in your poppy photos. I’d love to see what you capture! @LiveLoveSaute
I’ve found a new love in North Park! Serving up specialty coffees, avocado toast, pastries & flowers. This is a must try in San Diego.
I ordered the seasonal Rose Vanilla Latte, which was perfect with just a hint of rose. The avocado & egg were atop rosemary sage bread, need I say more?
I will definitely be trying the Lavender Honey Latte on my next visit, which will be soon! Nothing but goodness coming out of this shop!
I’ve been singing Queenstown’s praises since my first meal there in 2015 & I haven’t stopped. The brunch menu is definitely my favorite. I have yet to find any breakfast/brunch item anywhere else that rivals the Oink. Jalapeño cornbread topped with garlic kale, hoison pulled pork, poached eggs, & jalapeño cayenne hollandaise sauce. It’s simply perfection on a plate.
If you go for lunch or dinner, make sure to try the rosemary aioli dipping sauce with your fries and burger. It’s what dreams are made of. Most recently, I tried the Chicken & Waffles and was delighted that it came with a kick of heat. We are in San Diego, after all. Bring on the jalapeños!
Perfect cup on a chilly night!
2 cups lactose free milk
3 tbsp turbinado sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp Nielsen Massey vanilla
4 tbsp cocoa powder
Warm milk in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in sugar, until dissolved. Continue whisking and add cinnamon, vanilla and cocoa. Whisk constantly until well blended. Do not boil. Serve immediately.
Don’t forget to add love, it makes all the difference!
It’s true, home is where the heart is. My heart is always with my family and this pumpkin tart reminds me of all the yummy Thanksgiving meals my Mom and Grandma made during my childhood. Now that I’m lactose intolerant, I am so excited to have a dairy free version that actually tastes just as delicious! Aren’t the Williams-Sonoma pie crust leaf cutters the cutest? I’m looking forward to creating many more leaf designs, but a heart seemed fitting for Thanksgiving.
1 (15 oz) can Libby’s 100% pure pumpkin
1 (11.25 oz) can Nature’s Charm sweetened condensed coconut milk (I found this at Sprouts in San Diego. It can also be found on Amazon.)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 egg beaten + splash of water, for egg wash
1/4 cup turbinado sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 store bought refrigerated pie crust
Pam no stick baking spray
1/2 tsp sea salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 9 1/2 inch tart pan with removable bottom evenly with cooking spray. Place dough over tart pan & press into bottom & sides. Using a knife, cut the excess dough away from the top of the tart pan. Place in freezer 15 minutes. Cut second pie crust in half, place one part onto floured cutting board and refrigerate second half (for other use). Using the leaf pie crust cutter, cut out 10 leafs. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine sugar, salt and cinnamon. Stir in pumpkin, condensed milk and 2 eggs until combined well. Pour into tart shell. Place dough leafs in heart design on top of pumpkin filling. Paint with egg wash.
Place on a baking sheet. Bake for 45 minutes. Leaf cutouts should be slightly browned. Remove from oven and let cool 20 minutes. Refrigerate entire pan (outer ring and bottom) until ready to serve. When ready to serve, remove pans outer ring and place on serving tray.
