Man, do I love butter. I made Thomas Keller’s Potato Pavé from his cookbook, Ad Hoc at Home. I can’t even describe how amazing these taste… you’ll just have to make it for yourself. Buy the book here, or get the recipe here.
Oh, and if you buy the book, I dare you to make his Fried Chicken. Time consuming, but soooo worth it. Puts those Southerners to shame.
My mom made pancakes yesterday and used an old favorite recipe from Martha. (We tend to test out lots of recipes.) After eating these babies, we concluded this IS the best buttermilk pancake recipe out there.

I love it when I can finally share recent jobs I’ve been shooting. Here is the latest from One Charming Party -but be sure to follow their blog or mine for my favorite party coming up in the next couple weeks!

One more day until this bad boy is released. It’s on my wish list, but you can preorder yours here.
This quote is just the best. Rock on, Julia.
my friend made this amazing aquarium birthday cake for her husband’s birthday and gave him diving lessons for scuba certification. are you kidding me? HOW do you top that? oh wait, she does daily with her hand-painted linen company. leith… your projects just get more and more amazing.
Two things (of many things) that we do not buy in our family are store-bought tomato sauces and salad dressings. We’re kind of brats that way and prefer to make our own. Mother-forgive-me, but I can never resist great packaging from the beloved Tarjay and bought Giada’s Creamy Tomato Sauce and Raspberry Vinaigrette. I admit that I’m in love with this cheesy pasta sauce. I’d write more, but I have to get back to eating my pasta.
speaking of food…
it may be springtime where you live, but it just got cold again today and i’m up for comfort foods. i’ve been holding onto this recipe forEVER and might just try it. click here for the pumpkin fritters recipe.

One lovely thing about teaching classes in the Mission is accidentally stumbling into food carts. SF is FULL of them and i’ve just started following a bunch of food carts so I can dart out at any minute for creme brulée, waffles, tacos, curry or sweets. Click here for SF food carts and here for a not-so-comprehensive list (but still helpful). Does anyone have favorites I have to try? Please comment below.
I’m heading out in the morning for waffles if anyone wants to meet me there!
nope, not from a food cart, but what i made last night cleaning out my fridge: halibut papillotte with tomato concassée topped with thyme, buttered/softened carrots and a splash of white wine. my favorite way to eat fish. please excuse the iphone pic and styling –i’d eaten 1/3 of it by the time i took the picture.
