These sesame zucchini noodles are a lower carb version of traditional Chinese sesame noodles. They are easy to make and perfect for the summer because they can be eaten hot or cold.

Sesame noodles are one of my favorite summertime dishes. Noodles are tossed in an easy sauce and can be enjoyed warm, room temperature or cold. This zucchini version is even lighter and more refreshing.

Petit Trois

Petit Trois is a cozy bar offering classic French fare, headed by Chef Ludo Lefebvre. Located in Los Angeles, it is the more casual counterpart to Trois Mec (which is located next door).


I’ve been wanting to experience Chef Ludo’s cooking ever since his popular pop-up restaurant days and was thrilled when he finally settled into some permanent restaurant spaces. Trois Mec has been high on my to-eat list, but it’s only open on the weekdays, so I haven’t had a chance to dine there yet. Petit Trois though, is open seven days a week. After watching the restaurant featured on the Los Angeles episode of I’ll Have What Phil’s Having on a Friday night, we suddenly found ourselves there the next day.

The restaurant space is quite intimate. There are a few seats at the bar and a few table alongside the back wall. We were able to grab two seats at the bar for a late lunch, which also gave us perfect viewing of everything being cooked too.

This fluffy vanilla cake is filled with colorful sprinkles, creating a festive cake perfect for birthdays, celebrations or whenever you need some cake.

I normally only eat funfetti cake at birthday events but I had a huge craving for it recently. So I finally made myself one. After all, it’s someone’s birthday somewhere, right?
