Selina Siak Chin Yoke: Food as a Novel Character

Thank you to Selina Siak Chin Yoke, author and food lover, for sharing how food impacts her memories and became a central character in her writing. It even includes a recipe for Mee Siam, a spicy Siamese noodle dish! Do you eat to live, or live to eat? Being of Malaysian-Chinese origin, I definitely veer toward the latter. My earliest memories are of family and food: eating under a … [Read more...]

Traveling the World via my Stomach

Travel has always been a part of my DNA. Long before the adult gypsitis set in (yes, I made that up), and despite the fact that I was in a military family living all over the country and the world, I traveled through books. As a voracious reader, I went to the far corners of the world, soaked in the sights and sounds and learned about culture and history through the written word. At eighteen … [Read more...]

Locals I Love – Carmit and Jacob of Hatchup

As Mr. Misadventures and I ramble along through the Southwest, the hubby is thoroughly (obsessively) involved in capturing it in images and I am thoroughly (obsessively) trying to its discover great local food stories via its people and its products.

I don’t think it was an accident that my first experiences with Sahale Snacks were at the airport. It was writing on the wall that I would one day become a brand ambassador! I used to pick them up with a bottle of water (or coconut water if I was lucky) for my flight. While airline food has come a long way, it still has miles to go. Most of the time the snacks leave something to be desired. … [Read more...]

Baked Bear in San Francisco – Custom-made Ice Cream Sandwiches

San Francisco has no shortage of really great ice cream establishments. In fact, I'd say we're pretty much connoisseurs - we want unique flavors and fresh, local ingredients and we're usually willing to pay top dollar - or maybe it's just because we're used to it. Either way, we are definitely spoiled! But the great thing about San Francisco and its culinary delights, we always welcome more.  … [Read more...]
