Friday Favorite: I'd Like S'More Please

Absolutely, one of the most beautiful birthday cakes I have ever seen. Thank you Chef Grace Nguyen for preparing this s'mores cake for a dear friend. WOW!

In case you're curious, it was a graham cracker cake, with a chocolate ganache, and marshmallow topping. So good! Thank you Grace!

Friday Favorite: The Gateway Meat

Saw this on the street a few months ago--hilarious! In case you can't read it, it says "BACON: The Gateway Meat". What does that even mean?

An Anniversary

Today would have been my mom and dad's 35th anniversary. Here's to my mom and dad...two people that have influenced me in so many ways.

I'm dedicating one of the most romantic and beautiful images I have ever seen to them:

This is completely made out of chocolate--such a masterpiece! The creation of French chocolate maker and artist Mark, friend to San Francisco's extraordinary Michael Recchiuti.

Friday Favorite: Crab, Oysters, Tacos Oh My!

On a recent Sunday drive home from Sonoma Country, my friends and I decided to make a pit stop in Tomales Bay for some Oysters.

We ended up at the Marshall Store.

It was the PERFECT casual spot for us. We splurged on steamed crab, fresh oysters, BBQ'ed oysters, oysters Rockefeller, and even fish tacos! YUM!

You can't beat all of that food, a few cold beers, amazing friends, and this view! Hope to make a return trip up there very soon!

Friday Favorite: Little Apron

So adorable! Hanging at one of my new favorite spots in the city, Mr. & Mrs. Miscellaneous ice cream shop in Dog Patch!

I can just picture Ian and Anabelle's little daughter running around the store one day sporting this adorable apron.
