A vacation recap, with waffles

o I set my alarm for 2:30 in the morning, after packing my bag with water, flashlight, camera, sunblock and granola. I definately didn’t get enough sleep that night, but then, neither did anyone else. When the alarms sounded, we quickly dressed – warmly and in layers – before piling into our rented car and driving the 45 minutes out to the beginning of the ... Read More »

L’Artiste Patisserie

I don’t ordinarily review restaurants or anything here on my blog, but this bakery is worth a mention. The first thing it has going for it is location.

New adventures…

Isn’t this sunrise gorgeous? I took it at the SF Ferry Building Farmer’s Market. *sniff* The last time I’ll be there for a while, I imagine as I am moving to Los Angeles this week! Negatives: No more bay area foodie eats. Positives: Discovery of LA foodie eats. Ultra Positive? Goodbye dinner at The French Laundry tomorrow night! I cannot wait. But I will because ...
