Cloud Cookies!

Found these cloud cookies yesterday…yes cloud cookies! Herriott Grace makes these cloud-shaped cutters and has included a recipe for the cookies on her blog! The cutters are sold out at the moment but I’ve added myself to the mailing list. Hopefully she will restock soon, because I can’t wait to make a batch of these cuties. And I know the perfect person to share them with!

These snapshots are from lunch I had last Friday with some good friends. Since I had the day off, we met up at Atlas Cafe for coffee and their amazing sandwiches and salads. Ben got the tuna salad…mixed in are bits of cashew and shredded coconut mixed. Can you say delicious? I got the baked tofu with nori sandwich, my go-to everytime I’m there. I love afternoons off from work, especially when I get to eat yummy food and spend time with friends!

Outstanding in the Field

The official 2010 tour dates are here! Outstanding in the Field is  a traveling culinary feast, bringing diners together with food that is locally sourced from farms in their area. I missed last year’s tour so I am so excited there are a bunch of bay area dates to choose from this year. Going to round up some foodie friends to join me for this food adventure. I already know it will be one to remember. Check out all the photos on their site and prepare to drool. All photos from Outstanding in the Field.

Give me a break…

Kit Kat flavors from Asia!

A few months ago, there was a story on PRI about all the different Kit Kat varieties available in Japan. Flavors range from green tea, to soy sauce, to edamame! I posted the link on my Facebook page, and my friend Virginia told me they were also available in Hong Kong, where she currently lives. She promised to send me some and sure enough, in my mailbox yesterday, were 4 boxes of each of the above flavors. Yum! I just tried the royal milk tea Kit Kat and it really tastes like a cup of English Breakfast tea with cream and lots of sugar. Thanks Virginia!

Cookie Exchange

Peanut butter blossoms in progress

Second annual cookie exchange this past Sunday was so much fun. Thanks to sisters and friends for making it a huge success!

NYC Trip Highlights

Three mini cupcakes from Baked by Melissa. Red Velvet, Peanut Butter Cup, and Oreo Cookie.

Last weekend, Rance and I spent 5 days in New York. It started off with two days of wedding festivities and then we were off to do as much as possible with our short time there. The weekend’s highlights:

• Staying at the super cool Ace Hotel.

• Mini cupcakes that were cute and yummy! My favorite was the peanut butter cup.

• A walk through The High Line in the Meat Packing District.

• Shopping in Soho and the East Village. I picked up a mini stencil set at Kiosk, a unique curated shop of little goodies from all over the world.

We went to the Folk Museum to see the Henry Darger (one of my favorite artists)  exhibit, but realized we had just missed it and they were closed for renovation. 😦 Other than that little bummer and one crazy cab ride from the airport, we had a great weekend.
