Pork Chops & Apple Sauce

A couple of nights ago I decided to make pork chops and apple sauce. Truth be said, I wanted to make something with pork chops, because they are always on sale at Safeway (of course, that one day it turned out they didn’t have any on sale, but that’s just my luck). I looked for […]

Stuffed leg of lamb

Friday night I made a Bahraini stuffed leg of lamb for dinner. I messed up on the lamb – it came out too chewy – but the stuffing was great, albeit too scant for how good it was. Recipe at here.

My salad

Last night we went to the San Leandro Historical Society’s BBQ. Mike has become a real San Leandro history buff and he wanted us to join. They provided the hot dogs (which btw, were very good) and we were all asked to bring a side dish or a dessert. Now, my first instinct was to […]

Leg of lamb

I can’t make it tonight 🙁 I forgot I had to take Camila to swimming lessons and it won’t give me enough time. I guess I’ll make it Friday, but meanwhile, what do I feed everyone tonight?

It’s been a long time since I’ve made anything from my international cooking project. In this project I cook food from around the world alphabetically.

Balti Lamb Tikka

That’s it! I can’t cook Indian food. No matter how much I try, I always seem to fail. It’s a pity because I love Indian food, specially the one served at restaurants in California. I could eat the food from Favorite India every day. This time I made balti lamb tikka, lamb marinated on yogurt […]

As you may recall I wanted to make something not too traditional as Lola and Ignatius were coming after they had already a traditional meal at their family’s. But while the menu kind of worked out, the timing didn’t. I was a […]

Eating Bosnian

I have been so busy with work, SLCAN and Mike’s Campaign – not to mention the girls and trying to keep up with the home, that I haven’t really have much in the way of time to cook regular food, much less international food. But by sheduling it over a month in advance, I managed […]

Zachary’s and Daiquiris

Yesterday, for once in a blew moon, our Sunday was not booked (saved for an early morning meeting at Zocalo, where I enjoyed a chocolate croissant if you want to know), so I suggested to Mike that we have friends over for some Zachary’s. We hadn’t had some in a while, and, you have to […]

Happy Birthday to Me!

Last week was my birthday – and this year I decided to celebrate it thrice. I had a “Murder Mystery Birthday party” the Saturday before, a pizza & cake party the evening of, and a tea party the Saturday following it. Plus my friend Regina took me out for brunch the day after the first […]
