I enjoyed a wonderful day in the Napa Valley with my friend Tina yesterday afternoon. We started our adventure at the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone where we attended a cooking demo by the talented Chef Bobby Childs.  Chef Childs served up our Goat Cheese stuffed Turkey Sliders and Red Pepper-Apricot Relish with a … Continue reading

SF Ferry Building Field Trip

SF Ferry Building Field Trip

Remember class field trips? The excitement and anticipation of exploring a new place.  The breaking free of the monotony of sitting behind those tiny little desks in those uncomfortable plastic chairs.  The stuffy and uncomfortable bus rides.  The bag lunches. I’d like to say I have many fond and vivid memories of them but the truth is, my memory, … Continue reading

What goes around comes around…

What goes around comes around…

What might I be referring to you ask!? Karma of course!  Based in Petaluma California, Karma is a mobile food truck serving up Indian food from the side of the street. I had been seeing posts pop up on my Facebook feed for months, one in particular catching my eye – “Order the Sexy beast fries, topped with … Continue reading

Shhhhhhhhh!! It’s a secret! ;)

Shhhhhhhhh!! It’s a secret! ;)

For those who frequent In-N-Out, a secret menu isn’t (or shouldn’t be) a surprise!  But for those who live like mushrooms…. well, you know what they say about mushrooms… 😉 For those finding this out for the first time, sit down, take a deep breath and prepare yourself.  In-N-Out has a secret menu. Read that again. Slowly this … Continue reading

Fish Taco’s. Crispy or Grilled?

Fish Taco’s. Crispy or Grilled?

As if I didn’t consume enough salt last night, I dove back in wide-eyed and bushy-tailed this afternoon. Still feeling a tad dehydrated, what appealed the most was an ice-cold slushy Jamba Juice. However, knowing that at some point I’d be hungry, I knew JJ wasn’t going to cut it. I found myself at Baja Fresh contemplating their “Fresh … Continue reading

Más, por favor!

Más, por favor!

Yes. I said it. More please!! Mexican food is one of the few staples in life that I need. That’s right. I need it! The day I turn down Mexican food is a day that the sun no longer shines and quite possibly, I don’t have a pulse.  I could eat Mexican food for breakfast, … Continue reading

Doughnut or Donut!?

Doughnut or Donut!?

The English language never ceases to amaze me. Doughnut? Or donut?  Two words, spelled very different, pronounced exactly the same, both acceptable and both have the same definition, “a small cake of sweetened dough, often ring-shaped or spherical with a jam or cream filling, cooked in hot fat.”  “Hot fat”..  mmmm.. delicious! Sometimes. When I was 18, maybe 17 (the details of … Continue reading

HIP HIP HOORAY for Beignet!

HIP HIP HOORAY for Beignet!

While spending the afternoon in San Francisco, I stopped for lunch at a little sandwich shop in North Beach.  As I was reading their menu, my eyes were immediately drawn to one particular item.. Beignet.  Insert hearts popping out of my eyes here! 🙂 Pronounced “ben-YAY”, a Beignet is a deep-fried pastry.  A billowy pocket of dough, lighter than a … Continue reading

Comfort in Cream Cheese

Comfort in Cream Cheese

Have you ever had one of those days where nothing (food wise) sounds good to you? You don’t want anything greasy & unhealthy.  You don’t want anything heavy.  The thought of a salad puts you over the proverbial edge.  You know what you don’t want. But for the life of you, can’t figure out what … Continue reading

Panini me please!

Panini me please!

I love saying the word, Panini!  Panini. Panini. Panini. Ok. I think it’s out of my system. Panini!! 🙂 Who doesn’t love a grilled sandwich consisting of toasted bread, melted cheese (some of us could stop here and be satisfied! ;)) and the numerous combinations of other fixin’s!? All their flavors coming together to create a most savory … Continue reading
