Figure I’ll make this a short one because for any of you who have waited out my LONG posts from Asia, you probably need a break. Thanks for reading!
If you’re in SF, you probably know the SF Chronicle is posting their food section over the course of a couple days instead of their regular Wednesday issue. I’ll continue to post a highlight on Wednesday, if I find one. In addition to the opening of Nopalito, the little Mexican sister of Nopa, the food section has an article about meatloaf and local chefs. One of my favorites is the meatloaf at Blue Plate. I’ve loved this place since day one (when they had no pastry chef for the opening weeks and I used to make the desserts at home and drop them off!). Chef extrodinaire, Corey Obenour (and his former partner, my cousin Ian), had the meatloaf on the menu from day one and it is still a hit. Now you can try making it at home. Now if only they’d bring back the Lazy Daisy Cake.
I don’t know if it’s too much Asian food but, Mexican sounds delicious to me right now. This recupe, for Sopa de Tortillas de Huevos in today’s NY Times looks so hearty and satisfying. I love big soups like this and, no matter what nationality you are, I think you can call this one comfort food.
Salted Pecan Caramel Blondie Cake? I miss my desserts! Thai sweets were just not my thing. I craved a dark chocolate brownie or a piece of salted caramel. This recipe, in today’s Washington Post, might just satisfy my cravings for a while. Ya think?
Happy Cooking and Happy Reading…
