Travel is the one of the things I love most.  Do you get excited by planes, trains, and automobiles and all the places those contraptions can take you?  I do. 

The anticipation of a new trip or the memory of a trip from the past can cure most doldrums.

“Travel” is where you will find the stories of journeys, both short and long.  You can enjoy these travels vicariously, but I hope they inspire you to get out there and see the world.

Eat! Mangiare! Aufressen! Yemek! 

No matter where you are from or where you go, everyone loves to eat.  

When you travel, do you shop at the local markets and talk to the vendors about their food? Do you ask them for recommendations for their favorite restaurants?

“EAT” is where I share the markets, foods and cafes that are unique to the places I’ve traveled with you.

What do you collect on your travels? Recipes are the souvenirs I bring home. I love to share my memories with my friends and family.

“Cook” is where you’ll find the recipes inspired by the food enjoyed on the journey.

San Francisco Staycation!

For my birthday this year, I wanted to getaway. I did not want to fly somewhere or take a long drive. I just wanted to not be at home. Because we live in the SF-Bay Area and both grew up in San Francisco, a San Francisco Staycation was the natural go-to.
