Nutter Butter Cookies

August 12, 2009

Once upon a long time ago, I spent a lot of time hanging out at my friend, Miles’ house. His mom used to [and still does] keep a tupperware filled with cookies on the kitchen counter. Each week, the cookie selection would change. I was there so often, I would frequently help myself to some […]

Macarons – 3, Jenny – 0

August 10, 2009

My latest quest to feed my Type A [but inherently lazy] personality is to figure out how the heck to make a macaron. I hate paying $2.00 +/- for each cookie so I figured, I’m a smart girl…I can LEARN how to make it. I used David Lebovitz’s recipe for the French Chocolate Macarons with […]

Birthday Cake for Boss…

August 3, 2009

I don’t know what has come over me. I think it’s reading all these darn beautiful food blogs but I’m like a woman possessed! I have to, have to, have to…BAKE. My boss, Michael, had his birthday on Friday and I offered to bake his birthday cake. I asked him what he didn’t like, what […]

Colombia Travel

July 30, 2009

A couple of weeks ago, I received an email from the ProExports Colombia to attend an event to find out more about Colombia as a MICE (meetings, incentives, congress, expo) destination. A few people that I work with have gone to see rose growers in Colombia and have expressed what a beautiful destination it is. […]

Experience traveling…

July 28, 2009

I’ve been traveling from as far back as I can remember – first in those dreaded (now looked upon with fond memories) road trips in the station wagon with my brothers, then on my first flight to Japan, first solo trip (sans parents) to Hawaii, and beyond. Through all my years traveling, I’ve learned the […]

WLA Obon

July 27, 2009

Normally, I avoid the Obon season like the black plague. I hate running into people I haven’t seen in years…mostly because I can place a face, but not always a name to a face. Oh and the small talk. I hate the small talk. It’s always the same: “So, how are you?” [Fine]; followed by, […]

Why Jenny should not be allowed to surf the interweb…

July 12, 2009

There’s a reason why people like me should not be allowed to surf the internet. One, my house is a disaster and I really need to tame it before it overcomes me and eats me alive. The other reason is that I find sites like White on Rice and surf around on their site. Do […]

Napa Eats!

July 9, 2009

I’m one of those people who is usually just one (or 5 steps) step behind any trend. I’m usually pretty suspicious of anything new and need to scope, study, research, hold, smell, shake, and kick it until I’m absolutely sure. Well, that’s pretty much what happened with the Girl and Fig in Sonoma. I’ve heard […]

Northern California Food Markets…

July 7, 2009

Ferry Building Marketplace, San Francisco In an attempt to find Andante Artisan Cheeses, I stumbled across the Ferry Building Marketplace. Miette, Ciao Bella, Frog Hollow, Boccalone Salumeria, McEvoy Ranch Olive Oil amongst many other vendors. This is the first (and only) place we hit in San Francisco on our way up. While I probably would […]

Wine Tasting…

July 6, 2009

This was vastly different from my other trips up to Napa/Sonoma Wine Country in that it wasn’t a back to back race from winery to winery. Instead, E and I visited only 3 wineries: Peju, Frogs Leap, and Ravenswood. I wanted to restock some wines from Peju so we headed down there and were lucky […]
