Some Summer Eats

I spent a lot of time in restaurants this summer - not only eating, but taking pictures of food. For my dad's birthday in July we went to The Bazaar, an amaaazing restaurant at the SLS Hotel in Los Angeles. Pictured here: the oxygen infused olives (truly an explosive party in your mouth)
...and here are the watermelon/tomato skewers...

For dessert, they usher you into another part of the restaurant and you choose from the myriad of options at the endless candy bar. Willy Wonka would be proud.

And speaking of desserts, for my birthday the other night I went with my parents to The Tasting Kitchen and ordered up this magical sticky toffee concoction for dessert...

It was absolute perfection because it wasn't too sweet, and paired with the Cinnamon gelato? Beyond! (as my friend Daniela likes to say). In fact, the entire meal was beyond.

But the best of the best came on Saturday night when my sister showed up at my place toting this magical cake:

...which she baked, colored, frosted and decorated (with bougainvillea from her garden). When you cut into it you found a rainbow surprise.

Gosh, I have NO IDEA why I've gained 10 pounds. None.
