Our Guests this week… 

Jennifer Richmond (@kitchycooker): Jennifer has been cooking ever since she could hold a wooden spoon. Her cooking blog, Kitchy Cooking, appeared in 2009 when she realized she could combine her loves of cooking and writing. While she enjoys creating savory dinners for her family, she loves making dessert, especially if it’s chocolate – and since no course is complete without a drink, Jennifer always has the appropriate cocktail to go with it. When Jennifer’s not writing posts for Kitchy Cooking or creating recipes, she’s writing for the food section at or playing with her young two sons. Visit:

Caroline on Crack (@carolineoncrack): In 2005, Caroline started her Caroline on Crack blog which became one of the first cocktail blogs in Los Angeles. Her blog went on to win three L.A. Weekly Web Awards for best bar blog, best drinking blog and blog post of the year, as well as CBS Los Angeles’ Most Valuable Blogger Awards 2011. Caroline has written for BBC Travel, LA Confidential, LA Weekly’s Squid Ink food blog, LAist, UrbanDaddy and Wine Enthusiast. And for one brief, shining moment she had her own weekly segment “Crack of Dawn” on Carson Daly’s AMP Mornings radio show. She currently blogs for Los Angeles Magazine’s Digest blog and occasionally LA Mag’s print edition. Visit:

Esther Tseng (@estarla): Hailing from suburban Milwaukee, Wisconsin, she is a Midwestern girl at heart while currently living and loving the city life of Los Angeles she was always meant to live – even if that also means sorting through the corresponding sprawl. She has now considered herself a bonafide Angeleno for over a decade.She contributes to Serious Eats: Drinks, LAist, the Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board, Millennium Hollywood, Visit West Hollywood, Eater LA and Blackboard Eats.  Calling herself “e*star,” as in this blog, is her endearing way of fleshing out her father’s way of pronouncing her name.
