Ellen & Abs on Apples | Video

I’m lucky to call¬†Ellen one of my best friends. With her massive green eyes and gorgeous smile, she’s a total beauty. But what makes her irresistibly sexy are her hands: ¬†She’s a California farmer who works the land almost every day, and her hands–rough and calloused from the ranch–testify to her passion.

Ellen and I have always connected through the kitchen–we love seasonal, regional whole-foods prepared simply. In the below Google Hangout, she and I catch-up from our respective homes across the Atlantic, talking about a favorite fall treat: Apples. xoxo, abs
