So, this Saturday my kids and I have some serious errands to run in Westwood.
I love this part of Los Angeles. Mix of history, tradition, real city feel and nice places to relax and eat tasty foods.
After quick shopping spree in Aahs store which have amazing eraser collection that my kids love especially food items:), we decided to try something different for lunch, Falafel King.
Falafel plate was ok. Falafels were good and crispy just like pickled beets and hummus. Chips was a little to much for me…greasy.
It was time for sweets so we headed to the Diddy Riese.
That is what I’m talking about! Kids were amazed. Sugar Kingdom. Big selection of freshly baked cookies and different kinds of ice cream. Ice cream sandwich anyone?
It was really delicious. I know it is sugar and more sugar but once in a while it’s fine.
Yes, we had a good time in Westwood Village and we will come back.

Well, this morning when I opened our refrigerator I noticed that something is missing.
Colors, fresh summer fruits and veggies.
Our neighbourhood Farmers Market is on Thursday’s so kids and I decided to visit Westchester Farmers Market which is happening every Wednesday morning.
It is fantastic. I was very surprised with the number of sellers and great selection but I have to tell you this – prices are just right!
I got Champagne Grapes, Zucchini and Squash, Chard, Ripe Tomatoes, Plums and Baby Eggplant. All delicious organic produce around two pounds each for less then ten dollars. Amazing.

What a wonderful day at the Grove and the Farmers Market!
L.A.’s famous Farmers Market at Third and Fairfax is marking its 76th birthday today.
As always cool place to be with great food and cool atmosphere.
Today we visited Loteria Grill. Food was fresh and very tasty.
We has Burritos: Carnitas en salsa Morita – In a Spicy Chile Morita Sauce Served with slices of Fresh Avocado and Finely Chopped Onion and Cilantro.
Second was Carne deshebrada – Shredded Beef Served with Fresh Guacamole, Salsa Chipotle, and Finely Chopped Onion and Cilantro.
I love this place because they make there own fresh squeezed drinks from fresh seasonal fruit, like: Watermelon and Cantaloupe. Delicious!
As we all know summer is here, but this year here in LA we are totally wrapped in marine layer for weeks, so we decided to take some time off and get a little splash and hot weather in our lives. Just a two hour trip (by car) from Los Angeles to Rancho Mirage was a pleasant ride. If somebody prefers shopping, quick stop to Cabazon and Premium Outlet stores is a fun place to be with close to 200 stores from Gap to Dior, Prada, Gucci and many more.
Rancho Mirage is a resort city located just a few miles from Palm Springs CA.
Rancho Las Palmas is classic Rancho Mirage re-imagined for the 21st century traveler, especially those with families. With Splashtopia incredible two-acre water feature with its own lazy river, slides, pools and beach, Rancho Las Palmas is a fun place. Its bustling, central outdoor plaza connects guests to a world of activity: fine and casual dining, live entertainment and the 20,000-square-foot Spa Las Palmas is ultimate desert location. It features: 27 holes of classic desert golf, a 25-court tennis center, and four pools. The style of this carefree Palm Springs California hotel is easy and sophisticated and its location enviable – at the foot of majestic Mount Jacinto and directly across the street from The River, a dynamic entertainment, dining and retail area. If you are looking for friendly kids dining popular places are: Beach Pool Shack, Ruby’S Diner, Mimis Cafe, P.F. Chang’s China Bistro and Cheesecake Factory.
