We had a great Mother’s Day this year when we attended a Tom Douglas cooking class called Mom & Tom.
If you are heading to Phoenix, AZ anytime soon you should probably stop by Chino Bandito. Think Chinese take-out meets dive Mexican food.
I could easily spend an entire summer in NYC just eating my way through these markets. However, my wallet or waistline would not appreciate the journey. One of my must see destinations while in town for a few days is Mario Batali’s Eataly.
Good sushi in Phoenix is hard to find. We’ve tried several places that lacked quality and originality, both of which are super important when it comes to sushi for me. Good sushi is packed with fresh flavors, retains a clean and bright taste and combines elements you might not have suspected. Squid Ink located northwest of downtown Phoenix in Peoria finally wowed me.
On a recent trip to visit my sister, Katie, who is loving life in Manhattan we stopped by Chelsea Market before Sunday brunch (which really happens at 2pm).
On the last day of my work trip to London, Dad and I snuck away before the airport to hit up the Borough Market. Think of Pike Place Market meets Central Market/Whole Foods. The quality of foods and quantity of vendors was overwhelming! Simply put the Borough Market in London is amazing.
If you’ve been to Maui lately, chances are you have heard of this (not so) secret breakfast joint overlooking the beach at the Napili Shores Condos. You gotta be in line by at least 7am to be seated when they open at 7:30am. The line continues most of the morning before their great lunch service starts.
For 2013 I decided to jazz up my restaurant reviews a bit. I’ll keep them short and sweet but full of photos because really that’s the good stuff! The Scoop La Piazza Al Forno was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives our favorite Food Network show a few years ago. Its located in the north …
While in New Orleans for Virtual School Symposium this week I had an amazing meal at Emeril’s Delmonico in Uptown. Every bite was delicious and tasted exactly how I imagine traditional creole food. Our group got to eat in a private room which was only accessible through the main kitchen.
The recommendation for Cucina Toscana was spot on- and great for a team dinner last night. While inside Cucina its easy to forget you’re in Utah and not Tuscany.
During a hectic week stopping to appreciate a great meal with amazing company can make a world of difference. Whether its Date Night your spouse, boyfriend or just your best friend, taking time to enjoy people around you and have someone else do the dishes is an instant stress reliever.
I love when restaurants take a popular dish and add a unique flair. The best example of this lately was at House Wine off South Lamar (behind P. Terrys in Austin, TX).
I’m pleased to have my first guest blogger today! One of my cooking inspirations- someone who can make any leftover taste amazing. The man that had a toasted bagel with cream cheese and pesto waiting for me every morning growing up. Cooking with Care welcomes- Tom Vander Ark!
Federal Way, WA (my hometown) finally has a unique, classy restaurant that is on par with those found in Seattle and Tacoma. Peppercorn Bistro & Bar was a pleasant surprise in a city filled with restaurants that often lack creativity.
The Pike Place Market is one of the most magical spots in Seattle. No matter the time of year, the aisles are bustling with an array of people. Everywhere you turn there is amazing produce, huge bouquets of fresh flowers, and street performers perfecting their craft with a crowd watching on.
