Saturday Six #134

If you are in the U.S., I hope you all survived your day of gluttonous eating followed by a day of gluttonous shopping.  If you are an expat, hope you had the opportunity to have a little bite of home at a Friendsgiving.  If you are neither than welcome to Saturday!  During this holiday weekend I have been hibernating at home, we ducked out Thursday morning for dimsum but haven't left the house … [Read more...]

Saturday Six #131

I am warning you now, this week's edition of Saturday Six seems to have a food theme to it.  I am not sure if it is because Mr. Misadventures is in India and so I am fending for myself in the kitchen, or if it's because it is autumn and that just feels like the best time of year for cooking, but I have food on the brain! You might want to have a snack next to you before diving in! [1] … [Read more...]

Friday Food Foto – Happy Birthday Julia Child

Julia Child would have been 102 today and we still celebrate her impact on the cooking world. She was formidable and feisty.  And awesome.  I have written several post about her including the 5 things she taught me about life, she is an icon that will live on for a very long time. Of course I loved the Julie & Julia movie and think the new comic series about her is awesome! I would love … [Read more...]

Friday Food Foto – Han Il Kwan Kimchee

After a lovely afternoon walking the San Francisco Coastal Trail we were hungry...what else is new? We were in the Sunset District so we headed to a restaurant that we had been to in the past, Han Il Kwan Korean barbeque.  The last time Mr. Misadventures and I had been here was pre-social media, or at least my use of social media, so remembering its exact location proved difficult.  Even with … [Read more...]

Friday Food Foto – Parisian Pet Dej

I had so many wonderful meals in Paris.  Truly not one bad bite.  One of the biggest pleasures was a simple breakfast (petit dej) at Le Pain Quotidien at a communal table.  Coffee, juice, bread jam and a 3-minute egg.  Nothing better. Now, onto More Tasty Tidbits: From Framed Cooks: Candied bacon and Ricotta dumplings and Fish and chips and Bacon s'mores From Noble Pig: Maple bacon waffle … [Read more...]

Friday Food Foto – Roli Roti Porchetta Sandwich and Happy Birthday Ferry Building

All my attempts to capture one of the best San Francisco food truck items (the other two being baos from The Chairman and fried chicken from Arki) have been complete failures so I am showcasing this gorgeous image of Roli Roti's famous porchetta sandwich from I Left My Cart in SF instead. I prefer to use my own photos for Friday Food Foto, but I felt it was important to share this particular item … [Read more...]

Friday Food Foto – Shrimp and Chive Dumplings

This is a photo of yummy shrimp and chive dumplings from a lunch I had while playing tourist in Chinatown.  It is a post I am working on, but as my time is a bit limited right now, I have yet to finish it (coming soon!). Now, onto More Tasty Tidbits: From Spoon Fork Bacon: Scallop and uni crudo From Tartine & Apron Strings: Spinach and smoked oyster spaghetti and Thai clam … [Read more...]

Friday Food Foto – Cuvee Napa Oh! Benedict

I love eggs. I even have a Pinterest board dedicated to them.  I can eat them any meal, any way.  So having eggs benedict is nothing new, but I had a very original version of it while staying at the Napa River Terrace Inn during my #Trafalgar2012 trip. I had breakfast at their restaurant, Cuvee, and I ordered their Oh Benedict! made up of "two gently poached eggs, a top grilled baguette with … [Read more...]

Friday Food Foto – Tres Leches at Cha Cha Cha

After the holidays we've just had the last thing you might be thinking of is food....but I can't help it.  It is a topic that I am insatiable about! There are still so many foods I haven't tried yet and I am constantly on the look out for new ones. Sometimes it is just a matter of not getting around to it yet.  Like in the case of the famous tres leches cake, a Latin American treat made of … [Read more...]

Friday Food Foto – Freshly picked tomatoes

These beauties are just picked off-the-vine tomatoes from my friend's garden and let me tell ya, nothing tastes better than tomatoes that are still warm from the sun.  Wish we had space for a garden in our home, but alas that will have to wait until we either move or retire.  Mr. Misadventures has big plans for a garden when we settle down and I am all too happy to reap the bounty in the form of … [Read more...]
