Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

It’s been a while since I posted a recipe to Social Foods so I figured my new Chocolate Chip Banana Bread was the one to post after a long silence. My husband was complaining that my normal Banana Bread wasn’t rising enough. It has great flavor however the sour cream was changing the texture of … Continue reading »

Kale, Pea and Black Forest Ham Quiche

So a few weeks back I bought some frozen pie crusts from Whole Foods with the intentions of making quick homemade quiches and pies. Technically a frozen pie crust isn’t homemade but some days you just don’t feel like making everything homemade. This was inspired by friends who were making homemade quiches with lots of … Continue reading »

Chicken Matzo Ball Soup

Okay I had to post this soup because I make it so often that I had  to share it.  It’s very similar to my Veggie + Noodle Soup with a twist.  Like that soup it came about from the abundance of veggies in my fridge at all time due to my weekly farmers co-op delivery. … 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 »

Baked Mac + Cheese with Cauliflower

Who doesn’t love Mac + Cheese.  No matter how old you are it never gets old.  However, the key to this dish is making it homemade.  Instead of using my normal recipe that isn’t the healthiest,  I decided to tried this alternative compliments of Penzeys Spices.  It was definitely a crowd favorite.  I didn’t use any of their spices … 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 »

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 »

The 36th Annual Union Street Festival

Union Street Festival is one of my favorite events in San Francisco.  Held in the Cow Hollow district between Gough and Steiner, this free event showcases art, food, culture, and fun.  This year, I choose to take my camera and document the event by capturing some of the booths, food and of course animals.  No … 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.

The Perfect Scrambled Eggs

I love scrambled eggs.  I could eat them everyday at every meal. However, I’m constantly amazed how this simple dish is ruined so frequently.  I do not understand why people would choose to cook them so improperly when you can have amazing, fluffy and delicious eggs in minutes with a little love.  The technique shown is thanks the brillant … Continue reading »

Country Style Salade Niçoise

Whenever I’m asked if I would like a salad, the first thoughts that cross my mind are: light, a starter or a healthy option because I’m trying to watch what I’m eating.  I’m usually left hungry for something more unless I order the French’s version of a salad; the Salade Niçoise.  In France, the salad … Continue reading »
