La Folie

  La Folie isn’t your average restaurant.  It is an experience.  This is fine dining defined.  It is not for the light hearted or penny pincher’s.  La Folie is amazing but it’s hard on your pocket book.  I had the pleasure to experience this cuisine only because it was my 4 year dating anniversary with … Continue reading »

Sauce

With a name like sauce, it has to be good.  Well, it was!  It really was!  It was so good that we went back the following weekend with another group of friends because we loved it so much.  What’s not to love when you see what amazing food and drinks they cook up for their … Continue reading »

Cedar Hill

Who says that great BBQ can only come from the south?  Not us in San Francisco!  Cedar Hill is breaking the mold.  Not only do they have AMAZING BBQ with every famous BBQ sauce possible (I love NC personally) but they make a mean brunch menu.  However, after eating here, you’re not going to want … Continue reading »

Hearty French Potato Casserole

Again, another AMAZING recipe from Cook’s Illustrated Magazine: Issue 115, March + April 2012.  The subtitle to this recipe is what intrigued us, “In the old days, this rich dish got its deep flavor and silky texture from meat drippings.  Could we get the same luxurious results without a roast?”  I don’t know about you but that … Continue reading »

social foods version of a Cobb salad

Who says that a Cobb salad has to be a certain way.  Well, we say NO to that notion!  So we decided to make our own version of a Cobb salad.  Instead of the “standard” mixture of iceberg and romaine lettuce, watercress, avocado, blue cheese, chicken, chives, hard-boiled eggs and tomatoes we did it a bit differently.  We decided to … Continue reading »

Calistoga, California

My man and I decided to treat ourselves to a nice weekend for our three year anniversary.  I felt that no place was better suited than Solage in Calistoga.  We decide to do this since we have not been on a vacation for just the two of us ever!  This high end resort is so … Continue reading »

The City of Country Music, Nashville

Nashville is one of my favorite cities.  It has great people, great food and of course great music.  I don’t think it gets any better than that.  The draw back is that it gets REALLY hot and humid in the summer.  This is something that my San Francisco self can’t handle for long periods of … Continue reading »

Sonoma Weekend Away

One of the best parts of living in San Francisco is that just a short car ride away, Sonoma Valley awaits you with open arms.  This laid back valley is pure ecstasy to those wine connoisseurs or just heaven to wine newbies.  Either way, with great wine comes amazing cuisine.  Some of the best restaurants in … Continue reading »

Easter Brunch

Photo by Judy Castaillac Easter this year was at a private country club in Atherton, California.  I love Easter because of the brunch at the Menlo Circus Club.  Unfortunately, you can’t enjoy this meal unless your a member but I figured I’d share my meal with you nonetheless. Photo by Judy Castaillac Krispy Creme and … Continue reading »
