Tags: California, Joans on Third, Los Angeles, travel
Joans on Third is one of life’s greatest pleasures. It is by far one of my favorite places to eat and if it were closer to home I would be in BIG trouble. I have been here a handful of times, first with Angie, Bakerella last year and a couple weekends ago with Amanda, Kevin and Amanda. We got a number of incredible goodies, can’t wait to show!
I ordered the Caprese Sandwich and can I tell you that is is incredible. If you go for lunch, make sure you order it!
It comes with a little side of these little bread and butter pickles. I could eat them by the dozen. Love them!
This Snickers Cake is one of the best chocolate cakes that I have ever had.
The Coffee Cake was giant and delicious. My favorite was the crispy crumb topping!
Oh the Cloud Cupcake at Joans is epic. It is filled with a marshmallow meringue that is unforgettable.
Here is the outside seating area. You can see Amanda Instagraming/Tweeting our delicious treats We had so much fun. Make sure next time you are in LA, you make time for Joans!!

Right after the Farmer’s Market we were off to chase the LA Food Trucks! This was one of my favorite things we did last week with Bertolli! We meet the adorable Sarah from Tastespotting who helped Bertolli plan our fabulous day around LA. She is as beautiful as she is talented. Sarah jumped on Twitter and found exactly where the trucks were. We hit the jackpot, there were at least 6 trucks lined up ready and waiting to be sampled!! Take a look at our tasty finds…..
Our first stop was the World Fare Truck which had this fun upstairs eating area. We hung out here for a while and sampled one of everything on their menu. Not kidding! Photo by Shelisa
Here we are on top of the World Fare “Bustraunt!”
They brought us brownies….cookies…
Red Velvet Cheesecake Cupcakes….
This darn Butterscotch Bread Pudding was too good for words. I might drive back to LA just to sink my teeth into this again
How fun that these trucks are in a different location every day. They tweet of their whereabouts and people show up….lots of people! I can see why, the food is incredible!
These fried mac and cheese balls were ridiculously good. Photo by Briana

As soon as we finished breakfast at the Griddler Cafe last Tuesday our next stop was the amazing LA Farmer’s Market. We had so much fun browsing around and snapping hundreds of pictures. I’m sure people thought we were nuts! I thought I’d share some of my favorite photos from the market

Bertolli really went above and beyond last week. I truly can’t say enough about it. I feel so lucky to have been a part of the “Into the Heart of LA” Blog Event. I don’t even know where to start so I am taking you to my first night at the gorgeous Thompson Beverly Hills Hotel
I arrived at 7:00pm and checked into this cool room pictured above, picture taken by the talented Pat. I was so excited to meet my blogging buddy Amanda from Kevinandamanda.com. Her and her guest Jenny were right across the hall, we were running around like college girls Shortly after …
