Read on for our interview with Lauren, and her fun spin on Heidi Swanson's Rosemary Olive Oil Cake, using Brightland!
"Bring it to a BBQ, serve it for desert, have a slice with Saturday AM coffee — it's delicious anytime. Can't take any credit though, Heidi Swanson is a genius & Brightland Olive Oil makes this cake sing!" - Lauren
Interview with Meryl FeinsteinWhat do you like to keep out on your kitchen countertop or "kitchen shelfie"?
I keep some of my favorite cookbooks. Alice Water's " The Art of Simple Food' taught me how to cook!What does living in a golden state meant to you?
Being myself fully.If you could host a dinner party at home and invite 3 guests, who would they be, what would you serve and what music would play in the background?
A dinner with close friends always means lots of laughs. I'd have three of them over & roast a chicken — it never fails & is so easy. Would whip up a salad & have a little blistered tomato & yogurt goodness to put on everything! I love playing The National while I cook —they pair well with evening & a glass of vino!What is your favorite independent magazine to feel inspired by + learn from?
Apartamento Magazine. I love seeing interesting people's real interiors.What was your favorite thing that your mom/dad/grandparent cooked for you when you were little?
My grandma's homemade chicken soup with brown rice, it was always a treat.
