Great Grilled Cheese in San Francisco

Ah, the classic grilled cheese...I grew up with Velveeta, so my cheese sandwiches were melted Parkay butter, a slice of Velveeta melted to perfection with a squirt of ketchup.  And even though even I don't make them that often any more, I've graduated to a good cheddar, real butter, and SOSU sriracha ketchup. Sometimes I will throw in an egg in too, but then I am not sure that is technically still … [Read more...]

My Gourmet Mini-Meals

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Lesley Stowe Fine Foods. In the Misadventures household my hubby does all the cooking. I know, so, so, so LUCKY!

My Weekend Routine

We do a fair amount of traveling in the Misadventures household.

J’adore #53

I am not a big shopper which is why I tend to do virtual shopping, and if I can buy something online I will. J'adore is my way of collecting the things I think are cool, things I spot in my online travels. From time to time I do actually buy a few things and share what I like. My tendency is to buy from small locally-owned businesses, women-owned if I can, so by sharing a little about them … [Read more...]

The Bobo Palate: Context Travel Paris Food Tour

Baguette to Bistro: Context Travel Paris Food Tour

Shortly after the Parisian Bloggers Meet-up in October of 2009, where I met Lily of Context Travel, Mr. Misadventures and I read a little blurp in Business Week (followed by an article in Condé Nast Traveler) about the concept of context travel and remarked that finally this was the way to do a "tour."  Not those obnoxious things with thirty people getting on a bus, stopping at a monument and … [Read more...]
