I sent my first cookbook idea to a few publishers today! 🙀 I’ve had my proposal together for over a week but just couldn’t get myself to send it out. I buckled down today and let go of all the crazy emotions I’ve felt over getting the courage to send it. It’s out there and here’s a few sample pages for you to see. I’m still navigating the book publishing process and open to suggestions and publisher introductions. 🤷🏼♀️ It somehow all makes sense after years of trying different things in graphic design, marketing, cooking, parenting and most recently food photography to be working on creating a cookbook to help parents teach kids to cook. If you’re interested in checking out the book once it’s together, join the interest list here: brigeeski.com/book Thank you! ♥️

It was a very American tradition filled Fourth of July weekend spent in #BigBear . 🇺🇸 We watched the firework show on the lake, went to an air show, ate hot dogs and ice cream, went fishing, the kids rode a go-cart and we all made friends with the neighbors. How did you spend your #4thofjuly ? 🎣 🌭🇺🇸 #AllAmerican#FamilyFun

When Empanadas and Yerba Mate drinks come together in #SanDiego 🙌🏼 🍵🥟 Yerba Mate is a popular drink in South America. It’s treated as an experience. People bring their mate with them wherever they go and use it to gather around and sip. 🍵 @yerba.matebar just opened up in #PacificBeach and I had the chance to speak with one of the owners to learn all about it. Their family is from Argentina and they started out by selling their delicious Empanadas at farmers markets. I’m loving the addition of this tasty Yerba Mate Tea. The traditional is a must to experience the true flavors of the tea. It is like a rich green tea packed with antioxidants and vitamins. I tried a flight of their signature drinks and loved the dulce de leche. #YerbaMate#SanDiegoTaste

I’ll take all the Smokey Pork + Mac tacos, please!
We tried out @notnottacos at @littleitalyfoodhall by @sam_the_cooking_guy during our #LittleItaly staycation and I highly recommend you visit! 👌🏼 I’ve been following along Sam’s journey since he was on channel 4 and sharing awesome tips on his blog. I remember watching him talk about creating the recipe for their tortillas and how he really wanted to get the recipe just right. Well, he nailed it.
Those tortillas are some of the freshest and tastiest I’ve ever had. I would have never thought to add mac n cheese to a taco but that seems to be the point of Not Not Tacos. I couldn’t get enough of those tots either. 🌮 #FridayFun#Hosted#SanDiegoTaste
My new favorite beverage company just opened up a 10,000 square foot operation less than 3 miles away from me. 🥂 Looks like happy hours will now be held at @juneshineco Ranch. If you like Kombucha, you’ll love Hard Kombucha with flavors like Blood Orange Mint, Honey Ginger Lemon and Cucumber Mojito! 🍊🍋🥒 Their tasting room in #ScrippsRanch is now open. Keep an eye out towards the end of summer for @eat_enclave to open on site with the most delicious superfood filled specials like coconut shrimp tacos and ahi salads. 🥙 ☀️ #SanDiego#JuneShine#ThirstyThursday#BoochPlease
A family staycation in Little Italy is a must if you’re a local or a great trip idea if you’re looking to visit.
We stayed at @lapensionehotel , located right across the street from the Piazza Della Famiglia.
I’ve always wanted to stay there and was thrilled they offered to host our stay. This trip was especially fun because we got to explore family-friendly activities together and do a few firsts with the kids.
Find out all about our stay, the food, the location and our adventure filled trolley trip today on BriGeeski.com P.S. I hear the Taste of Little Italy is tonight. 🚃 #Ad#SanDiego#LittleItaly
