3 Ways To Use All Those Holiday Leftovers!

Happy New Year! If you’re like me, a big part of the Holidays here in the Silicon Valley had been throwing parties, going to parties, making food, showing off your new Apple watch, and then eating more food. You probably did a fair amount of going to, as well as hosting, these holiday parties, and as such, you’re dealing with a LOT of leftovers!

2 Great Traditional Christmas Treats to Try Out This Holiday Season!

Christmas is one of those holidays that a lot of people either love, hate, or ignore – but one thing is certain across the board: Christmas is an awesome time for food! It’s also a time for presents, which I love to receive, but also to give. In the spirit of the season, I’d like to share a couple of the traditional Christmas treats that I grew up enjoying, and which not many people I’ve met in the Bay Area know how to make from scratch.

Are You Ready for Halloween? These 5 Non-Candy Treats Will Still Make the Kids Smile!

Halloween is right around the corner; are you prepared? Here in the Bay Area, this may mean that you’re getting ready to set aside time in the evening to answer the door and hand out candy before heading out to a party, or before turning off the porch lights and settling down to watch your favorite scary movies!

5 Reasons You Should Eat More Game Meat

Here in the Bay Area, we’re serious foodies. Lately, there’s been a rise in Charcuteries along the Peninsula and in San Francisco that suggest foodies are going past wrapping stuff in bacon or enjoying a juicy steak; game meat is on the rise. If you visit the Fatted Calf on Fell Street in S.F., you can purchase such goodies as duck crépinettes with picholine olives, and quail stuffed with boudin blanc & braised chestnuts to take home and prepare for your foodie friends.

The 5 Most Memorable Snacks Of The 90’s

I found my High School yearbook the other day, and went on a little trip down memory lane. I graduated in the mid-1990s, and have some pretty great memories of those times. Grunge was big, so was flannel (Even in California!) , and the snacks were epic! Without further ado, here are my five most memorable snacks of the 90’s;

Five Easy No-Cook Summer Meals To Beat The Heat

As you’ve probably noticed, it’s summer. Besides long, gorgeous days and balmy, lazy nights, summer brings with it the thorny issue of how to make a satisfying dinner when the last thing you want to do is stand by a hot stove. Personally, as much as I love cooking, I can’t take the heat, so I try to find meals that are no-cook and no-fuss.

5 Foods 3D Printers Can Make That May Change The Future Of Mealtime!

I’ll admit it, when it comes to 3D printers, I’m a troglodyte. All I know about 3D printers is well, nothing. However, when I read this: “Journey to the frontier of food and you’ll find a 3-D printer, spewing out chocolate. While traditional cooking isn’t going anywhere, you can count on 3-D-printed foods eventually finding a place in our world.”.

It’s Summer! Get ready for Soup Season!

I heard that gasp of disbelief! Yes, summer is almost here, and soup should be on the lunch menu. You foodies know what I mean; cold soups and gazpacho! I’m the one who’s in charge of cooking in our household, and during the summer there’s nothing I dislike more than turning the stove on during a hot night; yuck!

Work From Home? There’s an App for That!

The Silicon Valley is such a dynamic and connected place that it’s easy to take what we have for granted sometimes. I’ve been working in this area since the late 1990s, and I was faced with a relatively significant setback early last year that fundamentally changed the way I was able to work in a typical office environment.

Bobby and Jamie Deen Are Filming a New Food Network Show; ‘Southern Fried Road Trip’!

If you’re into food, you’re probably familiar with the Food Network and the shows it features such as Chopped, Cutthroat Kitchen, and Pioneer Woman. There’s never a surfeit of great shows, and they’d be just fine leaving the line-up as-is. Lucky for us, they’ll do no such thing! Bobby and Jamie Deen (the sons of the oft-vilified Paula Deen) are quietly filming a new series that they’ll talk about/not talk about when approached by journalists.

Man-Cave Move Over – It’s She-Shed Territory Now!

When I was in Grad school, I lived in a very fancy shed. What people call ‘Tiny Houses’ now, is what I had, but with fewer amenities. It was a 12’ by 14’ one room studio in a backyard. This garden retreat was insulated, had electricity and offered plenty of space for me during school. It was such a cozy environment that I rent it out now as an office space.
