CREAM (Cookies Rule Everything Around Me), Davis

by

I can’t think of anything better than a warm cookie fresh out of the oven. Unless, that cookie happens to be accompanied by freshly scooped ice cream, and sandwiched with, well, yet another cookie.

Cream Collage

This is the promise that CREAM in Davis delivers – warm cookies, cold ice cream, endless possibilities (and cause for addiction).  With 10 cookie options (plus additional vegan and gluten-free choices) and 20 ice cream flavors on the menu, it’s a good thing there is usually a long line, because it can take some time to decide on the perfect combination.

While the ice cream cookie sandwich is the standard, they also offer a cookie sundae (one cookie and a scoop of ice cream), the usual topping choices and even brownies for the die-hard chocolate lovers.

I’ll have to admit, I’m officially addicted. Consider this your fair warning.

(Tip: Pay in cash to receive a discounted price on ice cream sandwiches.)

Banana Cream Pie Jell-O Pudding Pops

by

BCP Jell-O Pudding Pops_Text

Jell-O Pudding Pops. If only I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard those three words in the last month. It all started when my boyfriend, Joe, and I took BuzzFeed’s “How Many ’90s Foods Have You Tried?” quiz—because it was clearly more important than actually being productive, okay? After a few high-fives, knee-slaps and those were sooo good-s, we arrived at item #36; Jell-O Pudding Pops.

A Day in the Life of a SacFoodie: Tasty Adventures in San Antonio

by

As a SacFoodie I have the opportunity to travel to many delicious cities across the country and San Antonio, Texas is my most recent stop.

I had the pleasure of attending a conference at the beautiful Culinary Institute of America campus in San Antonio on behalf of a client and got the chance to take in some of the city while I was there.

Smells like Sweet Summertime on Capitol Mall

by

There are few things I look forward to more than the Thursday Farmers Market on Capitol Mall. Every Thursday, now through September, Capitol Mall employees come out from behind their desks and cubicle walls, and flood the streets in search of food truck eats and feel-good, California-grown goodies—flowers and produce! With all of the action happening directly outside of our office, Thursdays look a lot like Christmas morning for the Sacfoodies crew.

Summer Cocktail: Moscow Mule

By Stephanie Rudy

Comprised of only five ingredients, the Moscow Mule is as simple as it is refreshing. Traditionally served in copper mugs (I bought mine here!), the Mule was originally introduced in 1939 to help promote vodka during an era when gin reigned. The drink faded out in the 1960’s, but is back by popular demand (and for a good reason). Pick up these five simple ingredients at your local market and combat the heat while delighting your taste buds with this quenching libation!MoscowMule

In Season: Local Strawberries

by

One of the things I love about Sacramento is stumbling upon a corner of earth, right in the middle of our urban landscape, that some lovely soul has decided to farm. It’s a beautiful thing to see acres of fruit trees in the middle of a residential neighborhood, or a strawberry patch nestled between a grocery store and a tract of homes. These open spaces give our fair city the kind of topography that sets it apart from the concrete jungles out there. And, of course, the resulting fruit stands that feature an assortment of color-drenched, just-picked fruit (and vegetables) feels a little like a gift.

I love everything about a perfectly ripe mango. From its vibrant sunset colors, to its rich, subtly sweet and slightly tangy flavor – mangoes are my all-time favorite fruit.
