Headed to Sonoma with the masses, camera fully-charged, bag packed w/summery clothes & sunscreen, and HUNGRY! Admittedly, I’m somewhat averse to following the tourist herd.  (My parents helped shape this psyche I think!)  Major holidays tend to be spent away from the crowds.  But there’s a reason why people congregate in certain special places, right?  […]

In case my first post about bacon didn’t give it away, most of what will be posted here will not be pleasing to vegetarians and vegans. I love a good hunk of meat.  (Insert inevitable innuendo here.) I bring this up because in my kitchen there is a rib eye steak from Prather Ranch, well […]
