Dinner – MY Way (And…drum roll, please…a $100 giveaway!)

by

So, it’s back to school time. You can bid farewell to the laid-back days of summer when meals were ever-so-impromptu, laundry didn’t glare accusingly, and the days had that laissez faire feel. Now, it’s back to serious laundry management, carpool schedules, and earnestly packing lunches and planning meals. If you feel daunted by the specter […]

One Speed, Many Smiles

by

I’ve been an East Sacramentan for eight years now so we’ve seen quite a few restaurants come and go in the neighborhood.  It was bittersweet when Café Milazzo went out of business a couple years ago – it was a casual and comfortable space with friendly service but the food was lacking.  We did enjoy […]

Roma’s Pizzeria II

by

I’m pretty sure that pizza is the most perfect food ever. It can have all the four food groups and can be thin-crust, deep-dish and everything in between. I’m even a fan of its cousin, the calzone. My husband is a Yelp addict and he’s always looking for great hidden finds in Sacramento. One day […]

Zelda’s Gourmet Pizza: Deep Dish Takeout

by

There’s something about deep dish pizza that just makes me happy. It’s a treat, it seems uncommon and it’s often associated with fond memories. Or is that just me? In college, I was a loyal supporter of Zachary’s Gourmet Pizza. But it seems that the Berkeley, CA establishment hasn’t yet expanded its delivery area to […]

It’s Greek to Me: Symposium Restaurant

by

I love Greek food. To me, there’s nothing better than a warm pita overflowing with gyro meat, tzatziki, cucumbers, feta and some kalamata olives on top. Yum. Lucky for me, a close friend of mine just happens to be Greek and knows everything about the cuisine. So, when she asked me to try out Symposium, […]

Pistachio Dukkah

by

I’m always looking for fun and easy ways to entertain (and impress!) friends and family, and not surprisingly, for me it usually involves food.  One of my favorite things to serve before a meal is a crunchy baguette and a great dipping sauce or spread.  So, you can imagine my delight when our home economist, […]

How we Love our Heirloom Tomatoes

by

If you ask me, there is nothing better than a traditional caprese salad with colorful Heirloom tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and lots of basil, especially with a glass of wine on a summer evening. The Sac Foodies have been noticing Heirloom tomato dishes popping up on menus all over town lately. Brittany had a delish Heirloom […]
