Ally Gaffan

Ally Gaffan Through trial and error I've found the two loves of my life - Mr. S. and food. If I'm not out exploring the world with him then you'll usually find me whipping up various dishes, desserts and small fires in the Grid.

Chile-Garlic Broiled Salmon with Ginger Yogurt Sauce


Last night, Mr.S and I had dinner at a small restaurant in the SOMA district of San Francisco, called Fringale.  I had dined there about 5-6 years ago with my friend Grace and had really enjoyed my meal there, so I talked Mr.S. into going back there to...

Matzo Brei : One of Life’s Perfect Foods


Recent conversation with Kidlet #1 over a breakfast of matzo brei:

Kidlet #1: This is good, what's it made of?

Me: Crushed matzo crackers and egg.

Kidlet #1: What's that?

Me: An unleavened bread. They're like giant crackers. My dad used to buy them for me when I was a kid.  I'd put...

Happy Passover and Easter everyone! I hope you had a great weekend. I've been swamped lately with what seems like a never ending list of house projects. Gah! The past two weeks, Mr.S and I have been busy getting the spring garden in order (although we have no idea...

For the past year, I've been feeling an insatiable sense of wanderlust.  Most recently my inner travel bug was screaming:

Is everyone ready for Thanksgiving? I'm definitely not.  Growing up as an only child in a family that wasn't super gung-ho over celebrating holidays; I feel a bit overwhelmed during the holiday season since I started dating Mr.S.  He has a big family that's really nice, but the holidays...
