Strawberry Shortcake, Cupcake-style

Mon, 09 Apr 2012 03:01:28 +0000

Springtime is strawberry season in San Diego. While just about the rest of the US is waiting until mid-June for these beauties, we get them a full two months before everyone else. Sure you can buy them at your local megamart in Wyoming in the middle of the winter, but the berries we get now […]

…still here!

Mon, 27 Feb 2012 02:25:07 +0000

It’s been a while. There’s been cooking and eating, just not too many pictures. This tart was finally a worthy choice. A few weeks back I saw Jacque Pepin on PBS make a tart that his mom used to make. It looked real simple, a food processor crust, a quick pat into a fluted tart […]

I just knew I could recreate these at home without much trouble. I used the same dough recipe from my pissaladièr Here’s my take on a few… Old […]

The only Rolex I can afford

Sun, 04 Sep 2011 17:07:56 +0000

Several times each year the Apprentice makes the trip to San Diego to hang out, eat fish tacos, and escape from the New England weather. On this trip back to San Diego, he brought with him stories of his trip to Uganda and a new street food he ate while he was there, the rolex. […]

A girl, a grill, and sweet potatoes — Another MFG guest post

Tue, 02 Aug 2011 04:42:38 +0000

Another blogger and new friend Hanna jumped at the opportunity to guest post for MFG. Hanna is almost local and lives just a few hours outside of San Diego, in Las Vegas. In her first response to me about writing a guest post, Hanna proclaimed she had a, “love affair with food, and I loved […]

A Sweet Post from Canada

Wed, 13 Jul 2011 04:09:59 +0000

Last week I reached out to all my readers requesting volunteers to guest post on MFG. To my surprise, I got several responses. While she was not the first to respond, Jane was the first to send me a post about these wonderful Ginger Pecan Scones. Here’s a quick excerpt that Jane sent me: I […]

The My Food Geek couple were again lucky […]
