But, I must say, salad – the non-wimpy, robust kind – has […]

Shrimp and Mango Salad

by

For our recent SacFoodies potluck, the group voted for a color category theme – yes, you guessed it, dishes selected by their dominant color, from red, orange, green, purple and brown (for good measure).  I took to the web for inspiration and found the perfect recipe for a light, no-cook, orange-colored Shrimp and Mango Salad, […]

Great-Grandmother Murphy’s Potato Salad

by

There are potato salads, and there are potato salads. This is, undoubtedly, the latter. It is italicized and underscored, highlighted and bolded. It’s the type of potato salad that would wear white to another potato salad’s wedding, knowing full well how awesome it is and blithely unconcerned with how insignificant other side dishes may feel […]

Cafeteria 15L, Sacramento

by

I am addicted – to Groupon. So when I saw a Groupon a few weeks back for Cafeteria 15L, a restaurant I wanted to try since it opened, I snapped it up. I ended up heading over on a weeknight but the restaurant was still impressively busy. Although the entrees looked intriguing, there were too […]

Crocker Cafe, Sacramento

The Crocker Café was recently named one of The Sacramento Bee’s 10 Brightest Lunch Stars for 2010. And it’s no wonder. The eatery, run by restaurateurs Bobbin and Patrick Mulvaney (of the farm-to-table fresh, Zagat-rated Mulvaney’s B&L), boasts an expansive dining space across the light-flooded Friedman Court in the Crocker Art Museum’s recent $100 million […]
