After eating an amazing salad for 3 days straight from the local coffeeshop, Jason challenged me to cooking a different salad everyday for a week. I don’t think I made it through the week because once I plated this salad it was over!! I don’t think I could top this one. It is seriously addicting. Tangy Asian flavors mixed with grilled flank steak, crunchy cucumbers, sweet apples all on top of a bed of Ramen noodles. (I am a sucker for Ramen Noodles, I can’t lie). Continue reading
I was always reluctant about cooking seafood as I don’t have a car in San Francisco and I am the type of person who wants to cook something the same day I buy the ingredients. Yes, I know I am so Euro!
Just a few weeks ago Mollie Stone’s (my new favorite local San Francisco market) opened up on my street. Lucky me! So when I saw these huge, plump FRESH scallops I had to make them!
They were as good as they look. I served them on a bed of local mixed mushrooms that I sauteed with salt, pepper and spring onions. They rocked!
Thanks Mollie Stone’s! PS. Follow them on Twitter! They have awesome Social Media skills!
Chefanie Wambach texted me this morning to tell me Jack LaLanne, juicing & health guru died. My only response was “NOOOO!!”
He was the cutest old man I have ever seen, or at least on late night infomercials. Anytime I flip through the channels and see it on I will literally watch the whole thing. And this is not a new occurrence. I have been a fan of his since I was a little girl. Although I never had a juicer until recently, it never stopped me from appreciating his love for the fruits & veggies of this earth. Everything about him makes me happy including his rhyming wife’s name – Elaine LaLanne.
So after 20 years of watching the infomercial we finally bought a Jack LaLanne Power Juicer and I honestly think it has changed my life. Besides making fresh juices, it is great for salad dressings too.
Jason and I are juice fasting this weekend and I guess now we have a new intention to bring to the experience – honoring the life of Jack LaLanne.
Here are a few of my favorite juices for you to enjoy! To a long and healthy and happy life!
Kirby’s Energy Juice
This one is sweet and great for the morning. It will blow your regular coffee out of the park with the lasting energy it gives you.
