The Art of the Dinner Party

Happy Monday evening all! So, I am often a bit behind in my NYTimes Magazines as I like to get through a good bit of the main Sunday Times before diving into that section, and it's one you can pop back into later on and not necessarily be behind in world events. PS. I don't... Continue Reading →


Mushrooms and Minis. Week 11.

Happy Wednesday all! I'm being better this week with a second post on the heels of my super late Week 10 post. But don't get used to this cadence...given my track record it will be a rarity :-). I hope everyone is enjoying fall although for people in other locations you may already be looking... Continue Reading →

Afri-Caden. Week 10!

Sad. But not really, I'm in Hawaii...sorry, not sorry. :-)... Continue Reading →

Cheater, Cheater, Week 6 Eater.

Good Morning friends! It's beautiful and sunny (for now) in San Francisco and I finally don't feel like a zombie (my whole team had a serious case of The Mondays earlier this week). So I had all intention of cooking Monday night from my new, amazing cookbook, The Love and Lemons Cookbook that arrived late... Continue Reading →
