Baked Pumpkin Mac and Cheese with Sage

Y’all know it’s that time of the year. Thanksgiving is tomorrow (I can’t WAIT!!), the weather is getting chillier, and comfort food is a must. So whether you’re looking for a last-minute side dish to bring for dinner tomorrow or if you’re simply craving something cheesy, this is your dish. It’s made with whole wheat shells (you can use regular pasta too!) and there are three kinds of cheese. I had about 10 people taste test this dish, and I think it’s safe to say that this recipe is a keeper. The dish also feeds a ton of people so if you’re going to a big event, this mac and cheese is perfect! The pumpkin flavor doesn’t over power the dish and the crispy sage that’s thrown into the breadcrumb topping is amazing. The sage is cooked in butter… …and then the browned butter and sage are mixed into the [Continue Reading…]

Recap: Foodbuzz Festival 2012

Hi friends :) It’s been a few weeks! This post was suppose to go out about 2 weeks ago but then the SF Giants won the World Series! Needless to say I got distracted and this post was put on hold…Go Giants! Anyway, 3 weekends ago, Dailybuzz Food (formerly Foodbuzz) hosted the 4th Annual Foodbuzz Fest in San Francisco. Bloggers from all over the country flew out to California to meet other bloggers, explore the city, and eat! This event is really like Christmas for bloggers. Warning: This particular post is a little long but the event was just so amazing that I had to share details! Friday – October 19, 2012 The event started on a Friday night. We all checked in at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel and then headed up to the 21st floor around 5pm to enjoy a cocktail reception. There I got to meet a bunch of bloggers [Continue Reading…]

Brown Sugar Kitchen's Chicken and Waffles

Please excuse the low-quality iPhone 3 camera pictures but this place was just so good I HAD to share it with you all! (Plus, I just got an new phone so no more low-quality phone pictures after this! Can a get a woot woot?!) Tucked away in an industrial part of West Oakland, there lies a diamond in the ruff. Brown Sugar Kitchen is an amazing place for soul food! I went last weekend with my cousin, and we had such a great time. We arrived around 1:30 for a late lunch and was told that there was about a 45 minute wait. It was a really sunny and beatiful day so we didn’t mind hanging out outside for a bit. Plus, the restaurant closes at 3pm on Sundays so we knew we couldn’t come back later in the day. The. wait. was. totally. WORTH. IT. We were seated at [Continue Reading…]

Piroghy Pie

Today’s Reader Guest Post for The Holiday Project: Kristin from Elk Grove, California [Kristin is a friend who always has a bubbly personality and a smile on her face. Throw in the fact that she’s a law student that loves to cook and you’ve got yourself a girl that’s ready to conquer the world! Yep.] ******************************************************************* Hello blog world!  I’m Kristin, and I like food, wine, and purple things.  I’m a second-year law student at UC Davis and I’m a big fan of cooking things quickly with a high yield of leftovers.  My friends Gia and Danielle helped me out with assembling this casserole- cooking is always more fun with friends!   Piroghy Pie is one of my go-to comfort foods, plus it’s easy and lasts for-ev-er.  In my family, piroghies are kind of a big deal.  They are an Eastern European equivalent to dumplings, but with a thicker “wrapping” [Continue Reading…]

Foodbuzz Blogger Festival Recap

Last weekend I attended the 3rd Annual Foodbuzz Blogger Festival. This was the third year of the festival but my first time attending since I have only been blogging for under a year. How do I explain this…THE FESTIVAL WAS AMAZING!! LIKE CHRISTMAS. I think a fellow blogger put it in a great way: “It’s like comic-con, but for food bloggers.” Yes. Yes, indeed it is.  At registration, we were given a huge goodie bag from the get go. Two pounds of Godiva coffee (hazelnut and chocolate truffle flavors), chocolate samples, a tumbler, a DIY Cocktails Recipe Book, a reusable Foodbuzz Festival bag, and lots of other fun SWAG. Then we were shuffled over to the welcome reception where we checked our coats (how fancy, right?) and people were walking around serving us wine, beer, and delightful hourderves made by Sabra. Shortly after that, we went upstairs for the main [Continue Reading…]
