gabriellegeiselman It gets hot up in here..REALLY hot. The kind of hot that inspires wildly creative ways NOT to turn the oven on. When it gets sticky and hot like this there is only one answer. Nibble. Snack like you are in the south of France or dinning in a beautiful little cafe in San Sebastián...beautiful local little bites punctuated with elements like Marcona Almonds or Matinated Spanish Peppers or really fine Brie. Always the consummate hostess the lovely @belleannee put this gem of a snack together. The addition of the fresh apricots just took it over the edge for me. It may be hot but I'm happy...really happy.

gabriellegeiselman Hey insanely over the top crawfish Mac & cheese and pulled pork stuffed crepe....i think I wanna take you out again. I wasn't sure when they told me about you but now that we've hung out I cant stop thinking about you. Maybe it's the sweet and tart BBQ sauce on top, maybe it's just that creamy Mac and cheese..whatever it is I'm smitten! So oh crepe-ish one what do you say?

gabriellegeiselman Clearly I'm having a "banana bread" moment. This one was studded with roasted tamari almonds and bittersweet chocolate chips. It was salty, sweet and perfectly paired with a nice swipe of European butter.
Kinda an excuse to make chocolate bread with bananas in it but I won't tell if you won't.

gabriellegeiselman Because EVERYONE has 25 pounds of crawfish land on their back porch.
My beautiful little foodie Grayson plotting his crawfish takeover in these first summer days....it's amazing to be able to make this summer all about Allman Brothers, cold Abita Amber and good friends new and old. It just feels right...doesn't it? Life is beautiful my friends enjoy every last moment of it. Wishing you were here....

gabriellegeiselman Oh hello lover...
One more round bartender...round two of dark chocolate, butterscotch, praline and bourbon banana bread. I think my latte just thanked me for such a handsome date...

gabriellegeiselman You know what the most amazing of friends do when you are a sniveling, sad mess over the loss of your furry friend? They take you to district and buy you one of everything....and a bucket of coffee. Thank you @joythebaker for being that friend...always.

gabriellegeiselman Said goodbye to this magical creature, Sir Vincent Price today after 16 years of life...he was a rescue from LA county animal control and the most amazing creature a girl could ask for...we grew up together, moved across the country more than once, cooked together, broke up with boyfriends and had a baby together...he was an odd cat who loved grapes and Chinese food, thunderstorms and lizards and always knew, magically the moment I needed to have a warm, purring friend in my arms. He was a human in a cat suit and to say I was lucky to be owned by him...and let's be clear HE owned ME...would be the understatement of a lifetime.
Rest easy my friend. May the wind always be at your back...I love you.

gabriellegeiselman It's getting hot up in here and my answer will always be tomatoes...beautiful heirloom tomato and basil salad with a nice bit of homemade burrata from my friends at @stjamescheese. It's simple and fresh and easy to make on the go and a healthy and light way to hit all those perfect spring tastes in one bite. Just add a little bit of minced garlic some really fine olive oil and balsamic to taste and you are ready to go!

gabriellegeiselman Why chose when we can have all three?
This is how we like our @veuveclicquot in New Orleans chilled perfectly and brought out just in time to beat the heat of May. It's been a hell of a day and I think spending some time with my girls and some champagne might just be the answer to chase these blues away.

gabriellegeiselman Lobsters? We don't need your stinkin' lobsters!
We have crawfish...and they are perfect!
Enjoying the last days of spring with a boil from @cajunbrothers (family owned for as long as I can remember) with our beloved @burningcorazon and her husband @excessive_electron. These are the perfect days for a road trip to New Orleans before it gets too hot...the crawfish are HUGE, the Abita Amber is frosty and the company sublime.

gabriellegeiselman The St Roch Market is a hot subject around town these days....it was recently vandalized and there has been a lot of discussion about appropriateness and gentrification and while I appreciate all of that I think it misses the important part.
That community, St Roch and Orleans Parish as a whole needs JOBS. We also need to understand a large percentage of the money that feeds this city is tourist based. St Roch Market is literally and figuratively feeding this city....young pop ups and business owners are what we need and the market was overflowing with them. New Orleans is and always will be a food Mecca and it's good to see a vibrant reuse of an old fish market that pays homage to the past while bringing a modern element to the design.
I also am a HUGE advocate of fresh and local produce whenever we can make it available. So I say YES to St Roch Market....YES YES YES!

gabriellegeiselman I know I'm a day "late" but aren't I always? I always planned on having a child but to be frank I just got so busy chasing my work it just seemed to elude me. I wanted tradition. I wanted marriage and I wanted to "have it all". It seemed maybe it just wasn't going to be in the cards for me and then life, as it so brilliantly does threw me a curveball. Having a kid at 40, having a BOY not a girl! Spending the whole time on bedrest....learning for the first time in my life how to slow down. He's my favorite person...quirky, tenacious and incredibly sweet...it's been a hell of a road but so very, very worth it. He's given me the world and the best model a girl could ask for even if he does call me "mama-razzi". Happy Mothers Day to you all...
Thank you so very much to @helloearthtorachel for shooting our little family and insisting on it....I don't think I could have known how treasured these images would be.
