I love today’s story from Laura at the Spiced Life. Her trepidation is something we can all relate to and I am so grateful for her honesty! When I first spoke with Michelle about doing a guest post on her fabulous blog about cooking with my kids, I automatically assumed I’d be baking. My kids

What’s Cooking with YOUR Kids – Beyond Baking…and Shrimp Heads
When I was in Mexico last year, after they were able to uncurl my iron-clad grip on the airport entrance door frame because I was having a hard time leaving all those warm, freshly made corn tortillas behind, on the walkway to the departure gate, I realized I had a few extra pesos jingling in my pocket. Thankfully aside from a lot of great Mexican peanut candies and lime-spritzed peanuts that I stuffed into every pocket of my carry-on, the duty-free shop had a pretty large selection of tequilas, where I figured I could spend the bulk of my leftover funds

Farro Salad with Tomatoes, Mushrooms and Basil
By Randall Mack, Purchasing Manager People seem to either love them or hate them, there is no in-between. I tend to agree, as a child tomatoes were most commonly found in my napkin or under my chicken bones. My mom never understood why this was, as she loves the juicy fruits. As I got older I questioned this action myself, and as I began to explore new avenues for where my food came from. I discovered that those ‘so called tomatoes’ were nothing more than mushy, watery, impostures. Tomatoes should be sweet and delicate, not offensive and bland. When I eat a tomato these days I want to taste their sugars and their elegance, I don’t want to feel like I am eating a soggy cracker. These days eating a real tomato is a treat, something I put on par with climbing a mountain or sleeping under a redwood. Their growing season in Colorado greatly depends on how our summers develop, so lately we haven’t been able to enjoy their greatness until now. Grant Family Farms have beautiful heirloom varieties right now that display the true essence of what the tomato stands for. Subtle and sweet they are truly a summer time treat. My days of being fooled are over and I no longer stand for the general atrocities that run rampant in Colorado. If it’s not the season neither freshly picked, then I revert back to my childhood and use them as pawns; strategically finding their way to the rim of a plate or under my leftovers

What’s Happening at Chef’s Market
My kids joined me today as I did a cooking demonstration at a health fair in San Francisco, sponsored by Senator Leland Yee. While my daughter helped me prep some of the vegetables, my son ran around with the Flip video camera, catching some of the action. I did my best to edit the video
I had a wonderful trip to New York City recently and shared some of the places that I visited (see links at end of post), but there were plenty more places that I ate at, which didn’t get mentioned in previous posts. So here’s a round-up of them… Katz’s Most of the good delis are gone in New York City, but Katz’s is an institution and I like to believe it’s never going to let me down. I’ve had great meals there, but on this visit, my corned beef was tough and almost all of the meat inside my sandwich was inedible.

New York City Dining and Travel Notes
As a parent, it is so easy to be rushed. It starts first thing in the morning if you’re anything like I am; brushing teeth, packing lunches, dressing multiple people, combing through snarls… by the time I get to dinner, I really just want to order take-out or have it delivered. I can’t do that
On a recent trip to New York City, I was surprised (and delighted) to find many businesses are now offering free Wi-Fi, from department and electronics stores to the local coffee shops as well as national chains like Starbucks . Although the private businesses in Paris have been slow to catch on, the city of Paris hasn’t been and they offer complimentary Wi-Fi in 400 locations around the city, including public parks and municipal spaces. The Wi-Fi (pronounced wee-fee ) is available from 7am to 11pm, or during the hours the park or building is open

The French have a lot of protests and manifestations . Some of the issues they march for are a bit of a reach and we roll our eyes. And it’s annoying when the trains and other forms of transport go on strike and you need to get somewhere
