  1. What fun to read all these great beet recipe ideas! Our Farmers Market started up this week and I couldn't be happier for spring vegetables having arrived. Don't know why but lately I've been craving anchovies and beets in everything. Bucatini pasta with anchovy and garlic...caesar salad with anchovies...and this...a super yummy Beet Salad tossed in Anchovy Dressing. Beet Salad tossed in an Anchovy Infused Balsamic Dressing, served on a Bed of Baby Arugula and topped with a Farm Fresh Soft Boiled Egg Recipe and pix here: http://wp.me/puWta-cZ Happy Spring!!!
  2. Thanks for all the suggestions! Will let you know where we end up going and report back!
  3. Thanks for such a quick reply! We'll be staying in San Jose Del Cabo, renting a house that is located on the first green of the Punta Sur Golf Course(formerly Grand Mayan Golf Course)if that makes any sense! It's my understanding we'll be close enough to walk into town so not planning on renting a car. Looking forward to any tips! -Erina
  4. Hi all, Heading to San Jose Del Cabo this spring for a little sun and would love any suggestions for good restaurants to try. Definitely don't have to be fancy. Thanks in advance! -Erina
  5. I recently discovered Picnic, a food + wine boutique in Phinney Ridge that's absolutely brilliant! They have a beautiful assortment of meats, cheeses, wines, and gorgeous homemade prepared foods. If you like, read more here: http://wp.me/puWta-8K Their website is http://www.picnicseattle.com/
  6. As a fellow south sider I definitely love that we're getting more and more good restaurants down here. I think the fish tacos at Huarachitos in Columbia City on MLK are pretty dang good and for $3/each you can't really beat it. http://www.yelp.com/biz/huarachitos-mexican-taqueria-seattle
  7. Ah crap, I missed it. I swore I was going this year and obviously spaced it. Glad to hear Copperleaf did well. re:public is down the street from my work and I like it a lot. Particularly good value for the quality of food, IMO. ooh, good call. Re:public is also near my work and I haven't been there yet...I'll try that. I live in Columbia City so how I missed that there was a dim sum shop in an old donut spot is beyond me. Will definitely be going there this weekend! Thanks for the tips!
  8. Thanks Tighe! I think you're right...the good ones typically get found pretty quickly, but I always feel as though there are one or two off the beaten path that I might be missing. I'll check out your suggestions.
  9. I've been living in Seattle for the past five years or so, and am always on the hunt for little hidden gem restaurants. We all know the biggies that are always on everyone's top list (Crush, Sitka and Spruce, Matts, How to Cook a Wolf, Volterra)...but was just curious if anyone had any favorite spots that typically aren't on the main radar. Any thoughts or suggestions would be most appreciated! I need a new restaurant to fall head over heels in love with. Thanks,
  10. I was thinking the mint would be overpowering - no? You know...I thought it might be also, but it's a pretty small amount so it's really quite subtle. You almost can't tell that the mint and orange zest are there, but I do think it gives it a little extra "something".
  11. Hi Lippy, Yes! I tried it with both, and while I thought the fresh was perhaps a slightly subtler flavor, both worked well. I actually used them in the same quantities and that seemed to do the trick. Let me know what you think if you get a chance to try them out! I was thinking it would also be nice to create a lavendar sugar and do a light dusting of that on top... Best, Erina
  12. Yikes...apologies. I wasn't sure how that worked. I'll happily take this down. Thanks for letting me know.
  13. Apologies for the multi forum listing...wasn't sure how this all worked!
  14. Lavender Shortbread Cookies These are just as delicious as they sound and make lovely gifts or house-warming presents. Pending on your lavender lust, you can add more or less. Serve these with afternoon tea and be impressed with just how cultured and sophisticated you are. Full recipe here: http://wp.me/puWta-8f Anyone else have any favorite holiday cookies? I'm already getting excited for my baking weekends come December, so will have to add some additional sweet goodies to the list!
  15. May I just say that I'm so THRILLED Columbia City now has a thai restaurant that is reference worthy! I've lived there for about 5 years and it's so exciting to see all the new spots opening up. I'll definitely give this a shot.
