Halloween Pumpkin Cake

by

I’m one of those people who loves to buy holiday décor after the holiday (when it’s on sale) and stash away until the following year.  So, it was early November, 2009 when I came across a set of fun Martha Stewart cake stencils (on sale!) at Macy’s.  They have been burning a hole in my […]

When I heard that we were planning a Sac Foodies Thai week I knew instantly where I would be heading: being a recent graduate of UC Davis, I chose Sophia’s Thai Kitchen in downtown Davis, an old favorite and above all, an excellent choice for Thai cuisine.

We are not big Thai food people, but we do enjoy a good curry now and again. We started with the Po Pia Sod (Fresh Spring Rolls) which included vegetables, tofu […]
