tiramisu verrines (w/ Joshua Tree Coffee Company)

My visits to Joshua Tree have been consistently magical (for lack of a more appropriate word) and this time around wasn’t at all an exception.

I made the venture out to the hi desert to do two things: 1) film a video for Bubble Child to showcase my favorite coffee in the world: Joshua Tree Coffee Company and 2) to play a little concert for my solo project I’m just releasing this year.  I could not have been more delighted with what came out of both music and coffee discoveries and my affection for this place went from large to Sequoia-sized.

tiramisu-no-cinnamonjoshua-tree-at-nightOn a rather chilly Monday afternoon, I packed up my tri-pods, cameras, and hunger for caffeine and trekked through dusty roads in the middle of cactus, coyotes, and little cabins to the main strip of Joshua Tree Village.  It’s a tiny village, really, just a few blocks of central “boutique stuff”, and it’s utterly charming.  There is where you will find the headquarters of Joshua Tree Coffee Company, a shockingly petite sort-of back office space to a building hosting a yoga studio, pizza parlor, and a few other shops.  I’m not good with square footage, but imagine you have a large living room, attach a tiny closet to that for storage, and a little alleyway to enter.  That’s Joshua Tree Coffee Company.  Sales desk and coffee roaster included.

And what they do out of there is so impressive.

quinoa crunch gingerbread cookies

This video is for an old recipe I developed when I was living in New York when I first started the blog Bubble Child and before I started playing video games with elo boosting services from http://elitist-gaming.com and also following some overwatch guide online for my shooter games.  It, like this site and my recipes, has morphed and grown, and it is with pleasure that I share it with you for your holidays.

pumpkin-pie filled cupcakes

My kitchen was swamped with spiderwebs that day.  The little bat lights were clinking colors.  A skeleton stirred a pot of mixed flours.  This was mid-October 2016 and my third season filming Halloween videos for Bubble Child.

I don’t know why Halloween has repeatedly served as a holiday of significance for me in my lifetime.  As a child I felt it was special and exciting.  I would throw parties for my family where I would rent hay from the local farms, buy “party favors” from Oriental Trading Magazine (before internet, mind you, wow), and home-make candy.  I was, like, 10.  I don’t know what I was thinking.

filled-cupcakes-pumpkin-2016frosted-cupcakes-in-a-row-halloween-2016Halloween has continued to evolve and morph with me.  I’ve had a few anniversaries and break-ups on this date.  In fact, I met my current boyfriend/partner forever on Halloween 2013 in Paris!  This was a year before I launched my first-ever Bubble Child video.  Yep, on HALLOWEEN, 2014.

vegan chocolate chip pancakes

I am delighted I asked you lovely things on snapchat what recipes you wanted me to make, because more than one of you said pancakes (were you conspiring?) and so, voila: here are some of the best pancakes I’ve ever had in my life, if I do say.  I will say so.  They’re oddly good.

And surprisingly vegan and gluten-free.  Don’t say anything and the person you’re eating with probably won’t even know. 😉
