Sonoma and Calistoga

I highly recommend the Solage in Calistoga. Especially for breakfast/brunch. Their lemon ricotta pancakes are to die for. It's upscale but I never experienced any snotty or rude behavior from anyone there. Barolo is good too. For Mexican casual far Pacifico is a nice place to go. Another local favorite is Buster's BBQ. Very casual awesome BBQ place. Hope this helps. Have fun!

"1929 Gateau au Chocolat" aka Depression Chocolate Cake

Just made this today. It is so good. It really is like a big cocoa muffin. I served it with a little strawberry/blueberry compote. So good.

Seared Steak with Spicy Rice Noodles

This is very yummy. It's simple to make which is great for a quick week night meal. Good for summer and it's nice and light. I used a thai fish sauce. It's even good the next day cold.
