Slurp N' Sip: A Bay Area Oyster Crawl

Coastal breezes, salty air and crisp oysters. You might think these nautical vibe only exist in Maine, but just 30 miles north of San Francisco the air is cool and there are big bowls of creamy clam chowder that feel more East than West. Close enough for a day trip, but far enough that it feels like an escape, Tomales Bay is a weekend getaway favorite for Bay Area locals.

Lemongrass and Cinnamon Hawaiian Plantation Iced Tea

So, a lot of people think of Southern California and think all we eat are smoothies, juices, and salads. These days there's much more going on in SoCal when it comes to food but, it's true, we'll always go for a good smoothie. One of my favorite places to get a smoothie is at Backyard Bowls where everything is fresh and flavorful but never too sweet. I like the Tropical Ginger Smoothie so much that I decided to make my own version here!

Spicy Ahi Poke Tostadas

If you've spent anytime in Hawaii, then you know what the deal is – you get there and it's all about the poke. I mean, sure, I love the boiled peanuts and a bowl of Saimin and a great malasada (or ten) is a must, but it's the unofficial mission of our each and every trip to find the best poke of the moment of whichever island I'm on. It should be said that poke has become so popular in the last year that there's every version under the sun. I like to make super classic shoyu poke but put it on a slaw and a tostada for a bit of crunch and freshness.
