UnChu Littlefield

UnChu Littlefield Like so many others out there, I am a very busy wife and mother. I believe homemade is usually the "best made." I think children can be raised in the kitchen (our 6 year old daughter can work a Cuisinart better than most adults we know). and I insist that every chance we get, the family sits down together for a meal.

fresh strawberry crostini

No actual recipe in this post. But I was asked to share a few tips about these monthly dinner parties I do, so I figured this was a great idea to start with. The no 'real cooking needed' appetizer is a life saver! I can make the circle toasts well in a...

black truffle french fries

There is a photo of this dish floating around the internet. I saw it. Then later could not locate it. So, I kind of made this up as simply as I could. I do happen to have a small container of black truffle oil. And I always have potatoes. Let's give it...

Art Show Happening: Sacramento Farmers and Chefs Sept. 14

What is it? It's an Art project. And those of you who follow me on Facebook know I teach art during the school year so this project is not a huge stretch for me. Is it a food movement? I don't really think it is. I think the word "movement" can be left...

dinner @Tate’s / august 2013

What do you mean school starts in exactly two weeks??? For some reason this realization just hit me and sent me into a slight panic. Needless to say, I am not ready. Not ready to no longer have my little sidekick with me most every minute of every day....

dinner @Tate’s / july 2013

Another dinner on the books! I guess this is becoming somewhat of a habit? This summer I wanted to do the "Summer of Seafood" which is trickier than it sounds since no one in this house will eat it! Husband is allergic and daughter refuses to eat anyon...
