Headshot of Gaby Dalkin of What's Gaby Cooking Food blog leaning over kitchen counter smiling

We were absolutely thrilled to chat with Gaby, the California girl behind whatsgabycooking.com.  She is a cookbook author, chef, and food/lifestyle writer based in Los Angeles.  She launched her wildly popular blog back in 2009 after graduating from college and culinary school.  Gaby’s website is a playful, fun, inspiring, sun-soaked destination for everyone who aspires to live the California life, not to mention it’s packed with her mouth watering recipes.  Additionally, Gaby is the author of Absolutely Avocados and her new cookbook, What’s Gaby Cooking: Everyday California which was released in April 2018 from Abrams and is an absolute must for all you cookbook lovers out there. She recently launched a delicious line of seasonings and salsas with Williams Sonoma, I mean… Go Gaby!!!

In this interview we chat about her early days and her impromptu culinary school stint that quickly lead to working as a private chef and the launch of her blog.  She tells how she met her husband, what led to her 2 cookbook deals, and how important it has been to not accept ‘no’ for an answer.   We love her down to earth cool California personality, our shared love of reality tv, and of course good food, listen in and enjoy!

Dr. C Vitamins are Pharmaceutical Grade and Medically Endorsed

30% Off Use Code: WEGETTOKNOW

Dr. C Vitamins are Pharmaceutical Grade & Medically Endorsed.  All vitamins are not created equal, in fact did you know there is no FDA oversight for supplements?  Unlike over the counter vitamins, Dr. C Vitamins are manufactured without commonly found synthetic ingredients, I mean honestly, who wants synthetics going into our bodies?  They are also non-GMO and gluten free. Their standards are so high the vitamins are actually manufactured just like a prescription drug would be in an FDA registered facility. Most vitamins do not subject themselves to this level of oversight. Their supplements are made with the purest ingredients and tested for potency and purity. 

When you purchase Dr. C Vitamins, your mind can rest at ease that you’ve chosen the best.   I personally take their D3/K2 combo to support bone health, memory, mood and immune support and their Collagen/Biotin that supports strong hair, nails and skin and on nights when I have a hard time unwinding I take their Melatonin/B6 combo which helps me gently fall asleep naturally.
