Frankies for Dinner


Earlier this week, I headed over to the Eagle Rock brewery to try out their beer and was happy to be introduced to Sumant, the chef of the India Jones food truck. Beer was supposed to be the main event of the evening (and Eagle Rock Brewery was very enjoyable - will definitely go back there) but discovering the India Jones truck trumped our new beer excitement.

We shared the Samosa Spring Rolls, Veggie Tikka Masala, the Potato Paratha and the Mushroom and Cheese Frankie. The Frankie was my favorite and I’m hoping to happen upon this truck a lot more. Complimentary Aranciatas from Sumant and Dave (or maybe Gabe ?) washed down our dinner perfectly.

Mini Chocolate Cheesecakes


(via Love and Olive Oil)

My friend Allyson and I do a lot of internet food browsing. Most of our e-mails and IMs to each other are recipe exchanges and we have an endless list of dishes we want to try. One such dish was Skillet Gnocchi with Chard and White Beans from Eating Well. Of course I neglected to take a picture of this delicious dinner, but managed to snap a photo of dessert.

These mini chocolate cheesecakes from Love and Olive Oil were also on our list and they came out beautifully. They are the perfect amount, easy to make but look and taste impressive. Next time I make these I will be adding more raspberries. One was elegant, but not quite enough.

Two checks on our food list and happy bellies. YUM!

Square One Dining


Roman and I woke up early yesterday and decided to go to Square One for breakfast. Their amazing french toast had me wondering why I don’t go there more often. When I was visiting Square One on a more frequent basis, I would go with the bourbon-pecan topping with vanilla whipped cream, but this banana hazelnut special was calling my name.

We split the french toast and the veggie omelet with asparagus, squash, basil and goat cheese. Our omelet came with breakfast potatoes and delicious whole grain bread from Bread Bar. Their coffee is always perfect and service warm & friendly.
