Going Nuts for Rosemary Cashews

My aunt has been making these nuts every year during the Holidays for as long as I can remember. I seriously need to brush my teeth and chew on gum just to get myself to stop eating them!
They can be served warm out of the oven or at room temp.


Choose the Flavor, Fruit Jam Bars

I love making these bars because they are simple to make and so delicious.
My mom has been making these for as long as I can remember.  Every summer she makes homemade raspberry jam, and always makes a batch of these bars with her jam.


Winter Citrus Salad

This Saturday at the Ferry Building Farmer's Market I saw something  I had never seen before.  Red Walnuts!  They are so pretty, almost too pretty to eat.


Gloomy Day in SF Soup!

Today's lunch was inspired by nothing else other than the bad weather...
San Francisco is known as the "Fog City," which actually is not fair to say because we usually have very mild, beautiful weather :)  
But I willl admit, today was a particularly grey day.

Vanessa and Jaime eating- because that's what we do best!

Amaretto Persimmon Bundt Cake

O My Gosh- I have never eaten the batter of anything like I did this! Maybe it was all the liquor that had me licking the bowl clean!
