i’m back in the kitchen making some holiday treats!
“You know, I always said that I didn’t like avocados, and then I found out that they were fattening and I said, well I know if it’s fattening I should like it. So I went back and gave it another try and sure enough I loved ‘em.”
-The Queen of Butter, Paula Deen
I’ve been TasteSpotting for about an hour. Soon I will be back in action, I think my kitchen has missed me.
Monterey is one of my favorite places. If you ever go, please promise me you will go to Hula’s Island Grill & Tiki Room. It is the BEST. This is my Thai chicken bowl and Blue Hawaii cocktail. Aloha.
Ice cream from Fairfax Scoop: grasshopper, maple-walnut, and chai
delicious chocolate cupcakes with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream frosting. I made these for my best friend who just left to study for a year in Uppsala, Sweden.
Treats from Swiss Delices in Castro Valley! We went in for Princess Cake but they only make it to order in advanced so we got these yummy desserts instead after 15 minutes of free samples and deliberation. I wish I could eat this again right now.
