This week I made pizza on Saturday. Still on my quest for the best crust, I tried Bobby Flay's and grilled the pizzas. A little too chewy, although that might be my fault because I didn't have enough regular flour and had to use almost half whole wheat. The star... Continue reading

This is the house on Sunday evening, the weekend winding down. I was just about to grill some chicken kebabs that had been marinating all day and make the Avocado Fatoush recipe that was in Wednesday's NYT. The fatoush was delicious. I love salads with flatbread mixed in. There is... Continue reading

After a few failed attempts over the years, about a year ago I tried to make my own pizza from scratch and it turned out beautifully. I used Mark Bittman's dough recipe "How to Cook Everything" and was happy with it for many pizzas, but now I am thinking it... Continue reading

BART, I am finally done with you. For 17 years I have ridden you twice a day, from the days when we lived in the Mission and I would take you between 24th and Embarcadero, to our move to Oakland when I would faithfully commute from MacArthur to Montgomery and... Continue reading

Saturday night I used this chipotle chili paste with piloncillo (Rick Bayless) that I made a couple weeks ago to make some chili glazed broiled chicken with creamed spinach. Tony took the leftovers on Sunday to his all day film editing session with Claudia and they ate it for lunch.... Continue reading

I I like this mug from Starbucks. Work got it for me for Administrative Professional's Appreciation Day or whatever that is. It has a 70's look that I like. Tony has taken ownership of it though, so I might go back and buy another one so we each have one... Continue reading

It was Sunday evening, around 5:00pm. I was just in from the garden, ready to start dinner. Then it happens. Tony comes in the kitchen and he is looking for something sweet. We have nothing. No ice cream in the freezer, nothing. We are not big dessert eaters, so I... Continue reading

Everyone who knows me knows I love to cook. I devour cooking shows, cooking magazines, the NY Times Dining section recipes every Wednesday. But as much as I love to cook, cooking during the week feels like a chore and I don't enjoy it. I like to be able to... Continue reading

Rainy South Park, San Francisco I wish I had the "call in sick" gene sometimes. Today is definitely one of those. This morning we woke up to a rainy Friday morning. It was coming down pretty heavy in Oakland as I got the dogs outside, gave the cats their water... Continue reading

So Tito was lying on the front bed, Rita on the rear bed, when Kika marches in and stares down Tito until he leaves his bed, and once he is gone, Kika settles in his place. Continue reading

I hate how the local morning news tries to "integrate" social media into the newscast by including random people's facebook posts. Really? Like this morning, they were talking about the Apple announcement later in the day for the iPad three. The usual, they have a reporter on scene in SF,... Continue reading

Watching matches on TV, the shrieking doesn't bug me at all. But at live matches it is ridiculous. I watched an Azarenka match at Bank of the West last year and the timing, pitch and length of each scream makes it almost impossible to enjoy the match.
