The Real Deal : South  (Menu Sneak Peek)

(Barbeque Shrimp over Cheesy Grits)
 
Over the course of the last six months, I've received numerous emails asking if the little Southern restaurant near Southside Park I mentioned late last summer was still going to open up shop. The restaurant, South, does still have plans to open its doors soon. In...

Springtime Savory Dish :  Asparagus Flan


It's a bit hard to tell in the photo but the flan is actually more of a muted light green then yellow.

A few years ago, Mr.S and I took a little getaway to Seattle. We found a wonderful little rustic restaurant in the Capitol Hill neighborhood called Cascina...

Easy Weeknight Meal: White Bean Chicken Chili

 
 
I'll let you in on a dirty little secret...as gung-ho as I am about making things from scratch in the kitchen there are times when I take the easy road (or as I like to call it the "sloth road"). Case in point, when the weather's warm the last thing...

CHELO : Filipino Restaurant

CHELO : Filipino Restaurant

Sisigsilog

6115 Mack Road, Sacramento, CA 95823.

I'll admit I'm no expert when it comes to Filipino food, my experience has always been limited to the more mainstream stuff. I have had on multiple occasions the standard lumpia, chicken adobo, pancit,  and escabeche at Filipino friends' BBQs, dinners and...

Easy Weeknight Dinner: Pan Roasted Chicken & Mushrooms in a Creamy Dijon Sauce

I love cooking, for me it's relaxing and enjoyable. I know not everyone feels this way. Some find it tedious, boring or even stressful. And even I'll admit, there's some nights that I find comfort in easy recipes...ones that I can slap togeth...

A Healthier Slaw: Broccoli-Apple Slaw with Greek Yogurt

A Healthier Slaw: Broccoli-Apple Slaw with Greek Yogurt


 
I'll admit- I'm a klutz. People see Mr.S and me holding hands all the time, they often smile and think, "Awww, cute." In most likelihood though, Mr.S is probably holding on to me to:
 
a) make sure I don't fall over my own feet.
b) prevent me from bumping into innocent...

Mushroom-Barley Soup



Have you guys started your spring gardens yet? I just planted most of mine Sunday. This year Mr.S and I are being a bit more selective regarding what we stick in our dirt box. Last year we went all empire and planted tons of tomatoes and loads of peppers...they came...

Morel and Fiddlehead Fern Tart



Sometimes it's nice to get out of town, even if it's just for the day. A change of scenery, cooler weather and a bit of adventure is often just what you need to break out of a rut. This past Saturday, my friend Amanda and I took a mini-trip to...

What Are Your Favorite Items From Trader Joe’s?

I'm always swapping product recommendations with friends (and sometimes even strangers) and one brand often comes up in our conversation - Trader Joe's. Although, I'm not too big on their bread products (they tend to go bad quickly) and their produce (I prefer the farmers' market), I love a lot of their products. What...
