Cheddar & Chive Polenta Muffins

As soon as I had the batter mixed I knew they were good, and all my suspicions were reinforced when they were baking.  Nothing else smells this good baking.  Mmmm.  (As a heads up, they may look done at around 20-25 […]

Samovar

So I have to share another foodie find in San Francisco: Samovar Tea Lounge.  I discovered Samovar through two recommendations: Heidi’s San Francisco List at 101 Cookbooks, and a tweet my favourite local tea shop — David’s Tea.  And I am so glad I did!

Roasted Portobello & Onion Sandwich with Blue Cheese

I feel silly for posting a sandwich recipe… but really, this one is good enough to warrant it. We had a family BBQ, and we vegetarians in the family requested “lots of veggies on the grill… maybe portobello mushrooms, and some onions, and stuff?” and we were rewarded with portobello mushrooms and foil-wrapped onions!  Mmm.  […]
