When Angela of Spinach Tiger asked me, ever so gently, if I would join her and ‘cook red‘ for December 1 in support and remembrance of World Aids Day, I was honored to do so. Spinach Tiger is one of my favorite blogs and Angela is one of my favorite bloggers. While I’m keenly sympathetic to the devastation Aids has cast on millions of people, I, thankfully, have not been personally touched by it. But, Angela has and she bravely shares her story on her blog.
Here’s the delicious pasta dish I created with six red ingredients I found in my kitchen…
My sister handles our family’s Thanksgiving celebration. My only contribution is the appys for cocktails pre-dinner. And this year I was really thankful for that division of duties since I catered a big party last weekend and was still in recovery mode. I hadn’t even thought out what I might bring for appetizers — and then I saw Big Red Kitchen‘s andouille sausage and sweet potato kabobs and I knew this had to be one of the items. Continue Reading
The BloggerAid Cook Book is a book for all seasons. It’s for cooks on the lookout for new recipes and for page-thumbers who enjoy reading about what people in different countries eat. And, it’s for the big-hearted among you who want to help feed the growing number of millions of school-aged children who live in poverty and go with little to no food daily.
By purchasing this book and thereby supporting the School Meals program, you not only help feed children but you educate them as well.
Like so many other travelers, I fell in love with San Francisco on my very first trip some 20 years ago. What’s wonderful about SF is that on this, my fourth trip, I spent 5 nights/4 days and repeated nothing from the previous 3 trips. Here I am crossing the bay to lunch in Sausalito.
And here are some scenic and food photos with a little commentary and a couple of restaurant reviews.
So there I was at the FoodBuzz Festival in San Francisco…
One of the best things about the event was the opportunity to interact in a personal way with so many interesting people. From the start of my blogging ‘career’, I’ve been thrilled with receiving comments from people all over the world who somehow found FOODalogue…and me. The Festival brought together bloggers from 27 states plus 4 countries. I wish I had met more of them. I know now that next time I will employ a ‘speed-dating’ approach to meeting people.

“I Love FoodBuzz” was the event logo. It was on everything. And, by the end of the weekend, it was the mantra of the hundreds of attendees. ‘FoodBuzz Goddess’ Ryan Stern (Director of Community & Managing Editor), her colleagues Dorian and Alexa, and the rest of the staff made a herculean effort to create a great weekend for us. From the hefty welcome goodie bag to the planned events, food, drinks and venues…everything was stellar. It was like a foodies’ Christmas – gifts and goodies – and we all behaved with the excitement of children on Christmas morning. Kudos and thanks to FoodBuzz! Continue Reading
I’m leaving soon for the FoodBuzz Festival in San Francisco…and a festival it is! Hundreds of food bloggers from all over the world are getting together for a wonderful weekend of festivities arranged for us by our hosts, the FoodBuzz team. I look forward to actually meeting and interacting with some of my online friends and making new ones. A perfect menu of eats, drinks and socializing awaits us! The itinerary is… Continue Reading
