Your Favorite Salad Dressing--All Types

I make my own from the FF cookbook, too...but, I miss the Green Goddess dressing that you used to get bottled from the store. Wishbone or Seven Seas, I think.

Top Chef Seattle - Ep. #15 - 02/13/13 (Spoilers)

"Padma Lakshmi, that stoned and regal puma..." Wowzers. On the money. I have been trying to put my finger on how I feel about her. And, about AB, " Now he sits on a garishly lit soundstage, defanged like an aging circus lion..." That's sad, but true.

Anybody been to Enotria in Sacramento recently?

Yes! I have been preaching to everyone I know about the past year's changes at Enotria. I have visited Enotria for years, way before the renovation, but ever since Pajo Bruich and Matthew Lewis have joined the team, it is a true gem. Bad neighborhood, but do not worry. They have valet parking. The menu...more of a tasting menu now, is very interesting and yummy. And Expen$ive, but I find it worth it for a night out. Just a little bummed it is getting SO much press now! But, the secret had to come out.

Vientiane Laotian/Thai restaurant, perfect stop on drive from San Francisco to Tahoe [West Sacramento]

I agree with you. My friends are amazed that I travel to certain areas of town that they belive to be "questionable" to get my food or go shopping. And, I have had to coach the folks at the places I go that, even though I am probably the whitest chick they have ever served, I DO want it THAI HOT! So, it kinda goes both ways. It's all about being taught, I guess.

Vientiane Laotian/Thai restaurant, perfect stop on drive from San Francisco to Tahoe [West Sacramento]

Papaya salad and whole fried spicy fish. (But, our secret has been blown,,,the Sacramento Bee gave it a nice review this weekend...great for food, bad for location...) Also, the fresh coconut water is VERY refreshing.

Vientiane Laotian/Thai restaurant, perfect stop on drive from San Francisco to Tahoe [West Sacramento]

Vientiane angel wings and beef larb with tripe...oh, wow. Plus, the owner is so nice. They used to be in an ugly pink building. This may be in a strip mall now, but is quite cozy.

What do you like in bottled capers?

I like to nibble the stems of the caperberries...just like nibbling on an artichoke leaf. Don't eat the stem!!!!
