It's Not Delivery. It's California Cooking.

We've been cooking alot here in SF. With all the fresh produce and free range anything, its hard to resist!

Ina Garten's How Easy Is That? has been an invaluable resource. I highly recommend picking up a copy. The kitchen is fully stocked with all her books, but How Easy Is That? is a great starting point. Bolognese. Trust me. Oh, and Sliders, too.

The New York Times has also been a great source for recipes. Simplest Roast Chicken is one of the easiest, tastiest dishes I've ever cooked. Olive Oil, Salt, Pepper and you're done. Recipe here. I like to cook it with a veggie; you can't beat fresh green beans in a Teriyaki Sauce or baby carrots in a honey glaze.

The recipes are countless, but don't limit yourself to just whats in the recipe, change it up a bit!

Cooking with fresh ingredients is a lot of fun, but it's a lot work. The shopping list every week, the Whole Foods run, and the "I need to stop at Trader Joes on the way home from work because I forgot to grab the basil" trips, make everything all the more tasty.

But Liz is out of town for the weekend, so I'll be ordering a pizza from Long Bridge.

Do you have any fav's? Leave links to recipes in the comments.
