flour + water (+ other SF aweseomeness)

About a year and a half ago, Mike and I were in Southern Laos. We happened to meet a guy from San Francisco, and over beers on a deck perched over the Mekong River, he made us a list of his favorite places in the city. At that point we’d [...]

A new San Francisco Favorite!

Sometimes Mike and I talk about moving away from the Bay Area… somewhere cheaper and warmer. Then we have weeks like this and realize there’s a reason so many people live here or want to! On Tuesday, we saw Glasvegas — a band I’ve loved since Mike bought their record [...]

Memorable Memorial Day Weekend

Mike and I have been debating whether I should separate recipe posts from life posts… I feel like since this is a cooking blog, I have to have a recipe pretty much every time I post. He says that sometimes I should just write about what I’m doing, and if [...]

Oikos Superfruits Giveaway

Thanks for participating, everyone! Kamaile, that’s you… hope you enjoy all this great stuff! I think this might be the very first giveaway this blog has ever had!

A quick trip to Portland

I just got back from a few days in Portland with the fam. Although I’m pretty sure I’ll never live there again, I LOVE going back to visit. I had a ton of good food and went for some fantastic runs while I was there. All four members of the [...]

Bulgur and White Bean Salad with Tarragon

Once again the weekend went by WAY too fast, but at least it was a good one and I don’t feel like I wasted a moment of it! Here’s a little re-cap (which I promise WILL tie in with this recipe). Saturday started VERY early at the National Science [...]

St. Patricks Day Recipes

I don’t really go all out for St. Patricks day anymore… those college days of hitting the bars at 6 AM (or as soon as my final was over, since Cal Poly didn’t seem to care that their finals were interrupting a crucial drinking holiday) are LONG gone (and hopefully [...]

Cheesy Tomato Penne Bake

I have been eating a lot of pasta lately. And a lot of crackers and cereal and toast. Honestly, I think I’ve eaten more carbs in the past three months than in all of 2010. But there’s a pretty good reason…I’m 13 and a half weeks pregnant! Mike and [...]
