By: N. Yank Sing, located at 49 Stevenson Street in San Francisco, has some of the best dim sum I have ever eaten. Their dumplings are very juicy and tasty and the pork buns are out of this world. The desserts are also very good. My personal favorite was the... Continue reading

By Q. Yank Sing is the perfect place to go if you like Chinese food. I think this because at Yank Sing they never let you have an empty table! When I went to Yank Sing the moment we sat down, there where literally piles of food on the table!... Continue reading

I got stuck laughing at "dog sprained her tail"...mostly because I thought my dog was the only crazy mutt around!!
Happy Birthday Wallie! My boys are sending hugs and bright sparkly fireflies (that's Q talking) in her direction :)

Abi -- I bet that is going to be some seriously good stuff. A year?! Very rich. Ted - I added the simple syrup after 10 days of steeping the lemon/vodka mix. I'll wait about a month before it's ready. Although I think you're supposed to let it sit for 50 days post syrup? We may have to have some sort of homemade limoncello soiree.

Hi Cindy! Of course! We have visited Kauai a few times and Maui, so I can write about those islands and the specific spots we visited :) Charlene

We picked up that set (sans colored handles) over the weekend. Besides fostering good manners at the table, it helps develop small motor skills (the later being our summer work)!

Which did you plant from seed v. starter plants? (Either way they all look like they are doing really well!) Not sure what we'll do this year. Peas, tomatoes for sure. Basil, cilantro and mint. But haven't tried lettuces yet...so maybe will add those.

Also, I meant "What their vegetables are" :)

I remember watching it when it first hit and those snippets with the school kids -- the ones who don't know that their vegetables are...all I could think about was those cookbooks that tell parents to sneak vegetables into meals for their kids. Another topic altogether! Simplest thing to follow is to lead by example -- if parents are healthy eaters, they encourage their kids to do the same. I loved Jamie Oliver's presentation and look forward to more from him.

I do not know of this book, but I love your clever pairing. Is the book called Ooblick?

So, so, SO jealous, Glennia. We spent last year from Xmas to NY on Kauai and we regret that we didn't do it again this year. Was a magical week. Enjoy your trip and can't wait for more updates.

do it! super easy, amy. and look for bottles at The Container Store versus Sur La Table. Much cheaper. I just missed the boat and didn't order in time, so had to pay for more expensive ones! You could even do smaller bottles.

I've never had any problems uploading direct from iphoto to a typepad based post. something else you can do is use a flickr account and drop in the code. but i've never seen a widget specific to iphoto and typepad. have you checked out the typepad widget page?
