Fresh from the Brentwood Farmers? Market - 06.08.07
2008-06-08 23:55:00
I spend a lot of time mulling over the fact that I live on a busy street in a busy part of Los Angeles , and I often wonder if living within walking distance of some of my favorite things is worth fighting the traffic Monday through Friday.  But, when I walk to the Brentwood Farmers’ ...

Toro Sushi
2008-06-08 00:34:00
What would you say if I told you there was a restaurant that made me want to pack my bags and move to Chicago ? A Sushi restaurant. In the middle of the US, with no ocean to be found anywhere. Would you think I was crazy? Well, what if I told ...

Benziger Family Winery
2008-05-23 06:38:00
The second wine tour that my husband and I went on was Benziger Family Wine ry, in the Glen Ellen appellation of the Sonoma Valley. This was KJ’s pick, and I was so glad that we went on this tour. It’s amazing how different wineries can have completely different feels. I happened to ...

The Chocolate Cow
2008-05-21 07:09:00
The Chocolate Cow is the perfect stop for a sweet treat after a dinner at any one of the great restaurants in Sonoma’s town square. A bit off the beaten path, the Chocolate Cow is down a short alley, next to a lingerie store (could make for an interesting Valentine’s Day, no?). But, ...

Robert Mondavi Winery
2008-05-17 07:34:00
The trip that my husband and I took to California’s Wine Country, while short, was jam packed with wonderful meals and memorable winery tours, all of which I have been taking my time to write about. Since we have been back, for the past two weeks, my husband has been asking me when I ...

The Red Grape
2008-05-17 06:24:00
The Red Grape is one of those great restaurants that somehow combines classic food made with fresh ingredients, awine bar, and a family friendly atmosphere. This Italian bistro, which boasts an extensive wine list, is Sonoma’s version of Pizza Hut. And, that is why I love the wine country. Of course, you ...

The Big 3
2008-05-15 05:36:00
The Big 3, a casual bistro located on the grounds of the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn, is another great place that KJ took my husband and me to. We went for breakfast, after KJ waxed poetic about their lemon and cottage cheese pancakes. In addition, they serve a great fruit salad and local, ...

Food Bloggers on the Small Screen
2008-05-13 19:37:00
Last night, as I was flipping through the evening news, I landed on Channel 7 (our local ABC), and they were doing a story on LA food bloggers!  Featured were Eater LA’s Lesley Balla and Just One Plate’s Neil Kohan. It was a short, entertaining piece, but it brought up the never-ending argument I hear time ...

El Dorado Kitchen
2008-05-12 06:05:00
By far, the best meal that I had in the Wine Country was at El Dorado Kitchen , located in the historic El Dorado Hotel in downtown Sonoma. A favorite of our friend KJ, with whom were were staying, El Dorado served up the exact type of food I was expecting from Wine Country - ...
Happy Birthday, RRW!
2008-05-11 04:47:00
One year ago today, my young blog was born with a review of my favorite Mexican restaurant, Don Antonio’s.  Unbelievably, Don Antonio’s is still one of my biggest search engine drivers!  Anyway, I just wanted to take this time to thank all of my readers for coming to my site, commenting, and keeping the conversation ...

My husband and I are back from our wonderful, albeit much too short, trip to California’s wine country. What an amazing weekend! We drove up through central California on the I-5 (6-hours), and drove back along the coast (10-hours, but we stopped for about 2 of those hours). We took in ...

Sonoma, Bound
2008-04-24 08:02:00
Next week, the hubby and I are taking a mini-break (how British of me!) to Sonoma, and I am so excited! Luckily for us, we have a close family friend up there, who has actually had to convince us to take a trip to see her. I know - what’s our problem, right? ...

Presenting My First Souffle
2008-04-22 07:36:00
I know that I haven’t written in a while, and I deeply apologize for my absence from the blogging world lately. I was very busy with work until last week, and have spent the past few days recovering, but (in the words of George Castanza), “I’m back, baby!”. So, not only did I allow myself ...

Robert Irvine, Resume: Impossible
2008-03-04 07:43:00
The AP reported that Robert Irvine , host of the Food Network ’s “Dinner: Impossible ”, will not have his contract renewed.  While the article was vague, it turns out that Irvine embellished his resume, and now Food Network is looking for a replacement host.  I have never been a fan of him or his show, and I ...

The Almond in the Plum
2008-03-04 07:37:00
The other day, I discovered something new about food, which fascinated me because it was not about some exotic food, or some difficult cooking method. It was simply about plums. I learned about it due to a dried plum from India, which was given to me by an Indian co-worker. However, it ...

Dear Readers, I am writing this letter in apology.  I know that I have been neglecting you by neglecting my blog, and I am sorry for it.  I do have a few (weak) excuses. 1.  My new job has made me terribly busy, and that will continue for the next few months.  I will be working late ...

Valentines Day
2008-02-11 21:49:00
Well, it’s that time of year again.  A time that, for me, always feels so stressful.  Even though I am married, it still gets to me every year.  Valentines Day .  Ugh.  The planning (or lack thereof in my case) that it involves is just too much. This year, with my new job, I am unable to ...
Bergamot Cafe
2008-01-25 07:25:00
I started a new job on Monday. While this is exciting for me in many respects, perhaps one of the best parts of changing jobs is…new restaurants to go to for lunch! Luckily for me, my new job is close to Bergamot Station, a community of art studios located in Santa Monica . ...

Enoteca San Marco
2008-01-19 08:26:00
Ah, Mario Batali, you know that I love you, right? But, I just don’t understand your “less expensive” Enoteca San Marco in the Venetian. If this was meant to whet my appetite for your fancier restaurant there, B&B, it sorely failed. As a matter of fact, I am no longer dreaming of ...

There is a lot of hype surrounding Vegas, and because of that, it can be hard to be impressed when you go. Everything is so talked up, so expected to be spectacular, that the element of surprise is often removed. However, Tao was everything I was promised it would be. A beautiful ...

Wolfgang Puck’s Postrio was the first restaurant my family and I visited during our stay at the Venetian. As a general fan of the celebrity chef, I really wanted to enjoy my meal there. However, I left feeling like it was both over-rated and over-priced. Even my husband asked, “Has Wolfgang Puck ...

Hi everyone! Happy New Year ! I know I haven’t written anything in a while, and shame on me. But, I was having too much fun living it up in Las Vegas with my family. I ate at a few wonderful restaurants, and a few that I would consider COMPLETELY overrated. All of ...

People often ask my husband and me why we spend so much money to live in Brentwood , and our answer has never varied in the three-and-a-half years that we have lived here - Brentwood is a walking community. Every weekend morning, my husband and I stroll up to the Barrington Village for a cappuccino, ...

Could a Change in Diet Save Briteny Spears?
2007-12-13 07:36:00
This post is inspired by something I saw on Access Hollywood tonight, a piece called “The Cure for Britney’s Toxic Diet ”. Basically, Dr. Timothy Brantley uses poor Brit’s situation to promote his new book, The Cure: Heal Your body, Save Your Life. But what he says was interesting to me, because he spoke ...

Michelin or Zagat?
2007-12-09 08:08:00
With all of this buzz surrounding the Michelin Guide, what will happen to Zagat? At first, I was completely convinced that Michelin was the end all, be all, which is why I chose to eat at a Michelin Star’d restaurant, Valentino. And even though I had a wonderful meal, I have heard strange ...

Our Thanksgiving Anniversary
2007-11-28 04:16:00
As I mentioned in a previous post, Thanksgiving this year fell on my husband’s and my one year anniversary. While we wanted to have a nice, romantic dinner for two, we were conflicted because we also wanted to have a traditional Thanksgiving meal. To compromise, we decided to make a traditional Thanksgiving dinner ...

What is it about being on vacation that makes one think they MUST have copious amounts of dessert? My final food-find of my trip to Denver is Gelazzi, an authentic gelato shop with an innovative twist: they also serve alcohol. Not just any mixed drink can be had here. They serve two types of ...

So, most of you know that Los Angeles just got their first Michelin Guide, and that it was released yesterday.  Amazingly enough, this coincides perfectly with my husband’s and my first anniversary, which is in one week!  Yes, that means it’s on Thanksgiving.  For the actual day of Thanksgiving, we are cooking a traditional meal ...

At the corner of Lowell and 32nd Street, there are two blocks of trendy restaurants, cafes, and shops. This is where my husband and I found ourselves, stomachs growling, on our second day in Denver (sorry, no camera!). We wanted to find something interesting for Sunday brunch, and since we ate at Pete’s ...
