Bounty of Food…

One of my favorite Farmer’s Markets to shop at is the one held on Saturdays at the Ferry Building. Mushrooms galore, freshly shucked oysters, fresh vegetables and random fruits. I love it all!

Oink Oink Oyster Farm…

We had a lovely summery spell last weekend and Sam had a bad case of cabin fever so we drove up to Hog Island Oyster Farm on Saturday. Maybe he was treating me to a nice day trip since I’ve been cooking all these dinners lately. 😉 We drove through SF and had the windows […]

Tri Tip!

I love eating tri-tip. It cooks well, super flavorful and is delicious by itself or in sandwiches. When I’m lazy, I’ll get the preseasoned stuff and just roast it and slice it up for a quick dinner. One of my favorite pre-seasoned tri-tip comes from Schaub’s meats in Palo Alto. It’s called a “Fred’s Steak” […]

UPDATED: Dine About Town!

Yay!! I don’t need to cook tonight… since we’re hitting up SF again after work to indulge our fat butts. After much analysis, Groomsman Ben and I decided to hit up another restaurant up in SF for one last hurrah with DAT before it ends. I think that’ll tide us over for the next 6 […]

Sunday Brunch – Satsuma Infused Baguette French Toast

One of my favorite fruits is the satsuma tangerine. My parents’ neighbor has a lovely satsuma tree and every year they give us a few bags. Sam and I used to hit up the neighborhood joints for Sunday Brunch. Since we got hitched and my appliances have moved in, I’ve been making more of an […]

I guess I’ve been procrastinating long enough on my resolutions… 1) Travel more Hopefully we’ll accomplish this with talks about a trip back to Taiwan in the near future and once that is done, we can finally go on our honeymoon. Tahiti possibly? 😀 2) Cook more Strangely enough, I’ve taken more ownership of the […]

The Love Child of a Drunken One Night Stand Between Tokyo and Chicago…

Chicago’s known for their deep dish pizza/steakhouses (and hot dogs). NY’s famous for bagels/thin crust pizza. Nothing screams SF louder than Sourdough. Seattle’s known for being the birthplace of coffee. The little push pin on my traveling map now targets Vancouver. And I associate it for birthing this whole new food revolution starting with… *drumroll […]

SF Dine About Town 2011

I blame our groomsman Ben for getting fat. I got to work yesterday and got a message from asking if Sam and I would be interested in joining him and another friend eating at Fringale for Dine About Town. Um… YES!!! So we coordinated Caltraining plans and after work, the three boys and I made […]
