Having Fun!

In life you have to relax and stop to smell what's cookin'!
These pictures are very fun and charisamatic, and almost whimsical.
In cooking you have to slow down and take baby steps, at first it will seem silly and you will feel ridiculous because you may not know what you are doing. But just keep trying. Soon you will accomplish simple things that will make you feel more in control.
When you have guests over for dinner, the more fun you have will allow them to have the most fun. They will feed off of your energy. (Remember this: if things are not going well, your guests will start feeling the same way.
So slow down, build your confidence slowly, and if you mess up, then it is no big deal and pour you and your guest another glass of wine and it will be a night to remember!
Happy Cooking, and if you have any questions you can always ask, I am here to help!

The SanFrancisco Treat! Sourdough Bread.

Sourdough Bread is a gift from the bread gods. There is nothing better than to eat sourdough bread fresh from the oven. In Northern California they make the best bread in the world. When I was a girl I remember on vacation up North in Carmel my mom would come home from the grocery store and I would run in after her in hopes to rip open the bag of groceries... to get a morsel of that crunchy crust and that soft delicious insides. My mouth would water, and I would yearn for more.

As an adult I crave it, but I Crave it differently. For instance with Clam chowder, with Tuna Salad, in a grilled chhese, and I absolutely incorporate it anywhere I can in my cooking. I have traveled all over, andIn my opinion the best place to find it is in Northern California.
Happy Hunting,


Stomping around Carmel is one of my most favorite things in the world. There are so many things to be seen from the water, to the stores, to the weather.
This picture was taken in a boutique candy store where they make candy apples, Salt water taffy, and much much more! Wouldn't we all want to have these sweet treats GUILT FREE!. Thankfully I can take pictures and appreciate the beauty and not have to eat too many. The Rockyroad Apple that we took home to snack on was incredible.
All the Best, Mary
