Newcastle Produce: Food Lover’s Paradise

Newcastle Produce: Food Lover’s Paradise

You’ve been hearing a lot from Lynn lately, happily gallivanting about Spain for a month, but you haven’t heard much from me in a while. I founded Sacatomato five years ago with Jennifer Cliff and then welcomed Lynn as a co-blogger several years later. As fellow food fanatics, we’re always excited to talk about...

SF Street Food Festival Preview

Street food and food trucks are all the rage right now, and nowhere more so than San Francisco. Off the Grid SF calls itself a “roaming mobile food extravaganza,” and it’s all that for sure. Last Friday, Amber of Awake at the Whisk and I got to join 100 other bloggers and press people...

Booklist: Summer food reading

I’m a bit of a book addict. I have them stacked everywhere in my house waiting to be read–on shelves, the floor, bedside tables, and sofas. The guest room is lined with bookshelves that are groaning with tomes. (I should probably check the floor supports.) But nothing captures my obsession more than books about...

Recipe: Zucchini parmesan bread

Here we are in July, and it feels like spring outside–low 80s, a light breeze, and tomato plants just starting to flower. Despite the lack of tomatoes, there are some plants in the garden that love this weird summer weather and none more so than the zucchini. I’m only allowed to have one plant...

Recipe: Lime chiffon pie with blueberries

When I heard about the Pie Party being organized online by Shauna of Gluten-Free Girl and her friends, I knew I had to participate. I grew up eating pie, although I admit I didn’t appreciate it as much as I should have then. Now, I’ve come to realize that my mother makes the flakiest...

Recipe: Watermelon-lime vodka popsicles

I grew up slurping Otter Pops and staining my tongue neon blue. These days, I’d rather color my lips with blueberries—especially frozen into an icy popsicle. I’ve had some of the best popsicles recently from FatFace, the genius gourmet treats from Jaymes Luu. She’s had a stand at the Davis Farmers’ Market for a...

Eating Lao at Vientiane

I love to read books set in other countries as a cheap way to travel. One of the most interesting series of books I’ve read lately is Colin Cotterill’s Dr. Siri mysteries set in Laos in the late seventies, when the Communist party took over. The first book is called Coroner’s Lunch. Dr. Siri...

Recipe: Applesauce muffins

I’ve been on a bit of a muffin kick lately, thanks to the weird weather. I suggested them in desperation one day when it was raining (again!) and we needed some warmth. Turns out, though, that muffins are great to bake with my daughter. She gets to stir, it’s an educational activity, and we...

Getting My Strawberry Fix

Getting My Strawberry Fix

I heart strawberries. Nay, I adore them. I can’t wait for the strawberry season to get here so I can eat as many as I want without feeling guilty. Guilty about how much they cost to buy locally and sustainably, that is. Because I was raised on a farm, where we had our own...

More Great Restaurants for Kids (and Mom!)

A few weeks ago, I wrote about some of my favorite Sacramento restaurants for kids. They meet both the requirements of having good adult food and healthy kid choices, and best of all they don’t raise their eyebrows at accompanying children. I got some great feedback from readers and have tried a few more...
