2014 Food Trends: Fish Heads, Fish Heads, roly poly Fish Heads — Eat them up, yum. Well, not sure about the YUM part, but it appears Fish Heads and Fish Collars will be popular in 2014, so some say. Oh boy! And other, more desirable sounding food trends include… Haute Jewish Deli items, eating with your hands, raw Beef, house made Hot Sauces, Parfaits, Bugs, locally sourced everything, heirloom Beans, Peanuts and field Peas, reconsidered Rice, Ice Cream Sandwiches, edible food packaging, Tea, and Gluten-free products continue to grow. All are reported about in detail here, here, here, here, here, here and here. Happy eating!
Back together again decorating Cookies and Cupcakes in 2013.
With the Cookie Gang, minus member taking the photo — We wish you a Merry Christmas!
Naked Cookies frosted to become Snowmen, Reindeer, Christmas Trees and more.
Happy Birthday Jesus and Happy New Year to you — There’s much to appreciate throughout.
Good tidings we bring to you and your kin — Good tidings for Christmas and always.
I’m grateful to be back to share (not enough) photos from a beautiful Bridal Shower.
It’s mine — This stylish and tasty day was prepared for me (pictured in the Berry spoon).
I feel showered by love and well displayed, satisfying, glorious food — Thank you so much!
I’d been absent from here for good reason — To partake in this, move and finally reconnect.
Is this (above) not the cutest Bridal Shower Cupcake Cake you’ve seen? I just LOVED it!
After the first guest arrived, I stopped taking photos of the food, thus missing the hot dishes… Quiches with Green Chili’s and Bacon, and delicious Potato Casseroles topped with crunchy Corn Flakes — With Mimosas, all was/is tailor made for a Special Bridal Shower Brunch.
Blue Water Grill opened a restaurant on Catalina Island a few months ago.
A group of us recently traveled across the sea for lunch — Well, not just for that, but it was nice to see a recognizable restaurant immediately upon disembarkment. I had enjoyed Blue Water Grill in Newport Beach a few times before. It’s not cheap, but the food is good.
Pictured from top down we had Seared Scallops with Roasted Jalapeno Aioli — They’re great, but I’d prefer more than (3) for the price ($14.75) and it’s not ideal for five to share.
Baked Crab & Artichoke Dip — It’s okay. More of it would have been better too.
New England Clam Chowder — Always with Tabasco for me.
Grilled Salmon with Vegetables.
Grilled Mahi Mahi Sliders.
The main purpose of this trip was friends, not food.
The new-ish Blue Water Grill is news, but my Bachelorette Party was most interesting.
Much thanks to dear friends — I love Catalina and y’all.
Back to the food…
