Food Fashion Party describes this recipe as better than takeout, and I agree! It’s more customizable, safer, and probably faster to make as well. I’m not very versed in Asian cooking. All of the flavors involved in this are very strong, and it was fascinating to watch them blend to a cohesive umami finish. Delightful! […]
The molasses cookie recipe from Oaktown Spice Shop is both incredibly easy and delightfully spicy. Boyfriend said they tasted like gingerbread, and thus the holiday season, but I’m inclined to think of them as all-rounders. Have them with your caffeinated drink of choice. Divine. Spice up your day with Oaktown Spice Shop’s recipe!
My Berkeley Kitchen’s cardamom snowball cookies remind me very much of my parents, who are perpetually searching for the perfect coffee snack. This might be it. These snowballs are lightly flavored, splendidly sandy, and awfully hard to resist. Show My Berkeley Kitchen – and your own – some love with this recipe!
I really like the ceiling at Parkside Tavern: Views from the Daly City BART: Cityscape at Richland and Mission: Boyfriend pointed out that you can see exactly where the birds sit… Hayes Valley, one of my favorite parts of town: Display at The Epicurean Trader: ~26th and Quintara: The overpass near the Glen Park BART […]
This recipe comes from Recchiuti! As we noted earlier, their fruit-based products taste very, very clean: there are no ingredients that muddle the flavor or make it come across as artificial. Unsurprisingly, the same is true of their granita recipe. Simple enough for a kid to make, refined enough for adults to enjoy. Show Recchiuti’s […]
In and around Haight Ashbury:
The Mycological Society of San Francisco has made their cookbook available online! I can personally vouch for the miso-baked mushrooms: the salt in the soy product plays excellently against the mushrooms’ natural earthiness, and the baking time is short enough that they stay firm without drying out. For some excellent mushroom recipes, try Wild About […]
Boyfriend got a little bit mesmerized by Delightful Crumb‘s description for this recipe: “reminiscent of a muffin top“. Truer words were never written! Bake it in the recommended tart pan rather than the loaf, and you’ll wonder where the rest of the giant muffin went. Almonds and blueberry pair just beautifully. Find the blueberry cake […]
I started piecing together Stay Home, San Francisco years ago, while at my first work-from-home job. Then as now, I was gobsmacked every day by how good I felt, not noticing how much social anxiety I apparently have until it went away. Thus, the blog originally took the form of The Introvert’s Guide to San […]
Alanna, the Bojon Gourmet, is a local food photographer, and naturally my images can’t hold a candle to hers. Boyfriend and I tried to get a little creative because this baked oatmeal recipe definitely deserves it: The peaches caramelize just beautifully and pair really well with the earthier cashew cream. We made this late at […]
