The Emma Chronicles


Enjoying the sound of the waves on a foggy beach in Pacifica, CA.

Enjoyed a sunny day at the Redondo Beach Pier.

Gotta love a beautiful sunset.

Quick trip to The Last Bookstore in Downtown LA. Nifty place!

Nautical antique shopping in Sunset Beach 

Quick tour of the Point Vicente Lighthouse in Palos Verdes, CA.

4th of July weekend on Catalina Island

Took a stroll along the new marina here in town. So many empty slips just waiting to be filled! I loved the attention to detail, from the nautical compass to the ocean themed bolts along the walkway.

Love my little port town.

Had a great weekend in Death Valley with the bestie. Hiking, camping, exploring, and trying not to die in the heat lol

Inspired by Nashville: Buffalo Feathers Salad

When we drove from NYC to SF, one of our lunch stops was Jackson’s Bar and Bistro in Nashville were I had a delicious salad called the Buffalo Feathers Salad. Late last night I got a sudden craving for it and since they don’t have an LA location, I had to attempt to recreate it myself. 

Thankfully all it took was cooking/shredding chicken, tossing it in buffalo sauce and serving a small portion of it on a bed of greens. While it tasted great, I sure do miss the original…
