Let Them Eat Cake

25 May

Julia Child once said: A party without cake is just a meeting. I totally agree. I am not a girl who turns down cake (except in the rare instance that I am allergic to an ingredient otherwise if I am turning it down, I must be sick. I just love sweets, particularly cake. I have to say that one very delicious one is the Buca di Beppo double dark chocolate cake so I thought I would share photo from my last encounter with this delicious beauty in all it’s glory! Bon Appetit!

Grilled Cheese Goodness: let’s kick it up a notch- as they say

23 May

grilled cheese

Foodie files: best grilled cheese ever I make this vegetable soup that I love love love- super delish- but that’s for another post. But my favorite accompaniment to my homemade veggie soup is grilled cheese. Normally I opt for just kraft singles on the whole wheat bread that we keep on hand (since that’s what I always had when I was growing up), not bad but nothing to write home about. So last night I thought I want to make these sandwiches a little more ‘gourmet’. I went to Trader Joes and got a loaf of sourdough swiped a little butter on the outside sides, melted a slice of extra sharp white cheddar and smokey Gouda and a few thin slices of granny smith apple and crisped it to golden perfection. Ooey gooey and perfectly crunchy- best I have ever had.


Neptune’s Net Love

21 May

Crabcakes and fries from the famed Neptunes Net, Malibu, CA. One of the best places to stop for a bite on PCH, great fried seafood baskets, fresh steamed goodies, and most of all amazing clam chowder! Of course, you cannot beat the view!crab cakes neptunes
