Weekend Wishes

Isn’t it crazy that Labor Day is here already? I hope you have some fun plans! Although it’s going to be a gorgeous weekend, I do hope to get some shopping in. After all, those holiday sales aren’t going to shop themselves. Picnicing seems to be a must for Labor Day, and I never tire of outdoor meals. Be sure to seize the opportunity to eat your favorite summer foods before the season ends. Summer to me is a mint chocolate chip ice cream cone (yes, the green version). What will you be eating?

Summer in the City: Desserts for Breakfast

August 30, 2012 § Leave a comment

This week, Stephanie, of Desserts for Breakfast, is here to share some Bay Area favorites. Her food photography and recipes with the most amazing flavor combinations make her blog one to remember. I love the premise of her site, since I am a big believer in eating dessert for breakfast!

I also want to mention that as summer comes to a close, it’s only fitting that our Summer in the City series ends as well. This will be the last installment, and

Coming to CC this Fall…

You guys, we have been cooking up something big this summer, and I’m so excited to finally tell you all about it! A few months back I got coffee with Jen, a fellow event planner and blogger in NYC. We got to chatting, and started discussing potential collaborations. As an entertaining whiz, Jen is an expert when it comes to hosting amazing parties and gatherings- even in the tiniest of spaces. For a long time I have wanted to bring more of my event planning skills to the blog, but…

Pulled Chicken Tacos

I dream of the day I can make a true red or green chili sauce, or an actual molé. Until then, I’ll continue on in my faux Mexican food state. And besides, who can resist tacos, in any form?

When we spent the weekend in Rocky Point a few weeks back, and feasted on some of the best tacos of my life, I was reminded that it had been ages since I made tacos at home.  I don’t like to have to do a lot of work when it comes to tacos and the whole dry meat…

Happy Weekend! It doesn’t get any better than a perfect summer Saturday. Do you go to your local farmer’s market at all? I have to say, I love going to mine, and actually try to go every week. This weekend will be no different, and an extra incentive is that, in addition to produce, they have other vendors as well. This means I end up eating baklava and Turkish coffee for breakfast- definitely the best part! What are your plans this weekend?

Cape Cod Bound!

Happy Friday, friends! I haven’t been this excited for the end of  the week in a while. Tomorrow morning, bright and early, my mom and I are hitting the road for Cape Cod! For Mother’s Day this year I surprised her with a week long mother daughter beach vacay. We’ve been waiting anxiously since May…
