When I first met my bestie Amy Black, (fabulous fashion blogger & Instagrammer @amysvintagecloset!) she was managing the cutest little breakfast & lunch spot in La Jolla called Coffee Cup.

Not only was it fun to bop in to visit her at work, but the food was incredible! Amy has since moved back to Phoenix, but I still frequent Coffee Cup for their delicious food!

Nectarine Fig Burrata Bruschetta

Nectarine Fig Burrata Bruschetta Recipe

Over the years, I’ve heard people mention the 5 Love Languages. I went to look them up and I found Burrata nowhere on the list, so I’m pretty sure they made a mistake 😉

Just in case anyone was wondering (or interested – I am single after all – lol) my 5 love languages go something like this:

  1. Coffee
  2. Burrata
  3. Tacos
  4. Beer
  5. Pizza

I believe my next book will be entitled “The 5 Love Languages of a Foodie” haha!
