As a Korean-American foodie who resides in West Oakland, I’m lucky that there’s a slew of fine eateries not too far from our home all along Telegraph Avenue in Temescal.
Take a cucumber, a lemon, a handful of backyard mint and throw it together with a bottle of vodka and you’ve got a kickin’ summer cocktail that will get any party started.
This cobbler takes the cake. It actually makes you forget about cake at all, because, who needs cake when you can have a crisp, chewy, buttery cobbler infused with vanilla and covered in bubbling tender juicy nectarines?
There’s nothing like the smell of steak hitting a hot sizzling grill. Pop open a beer and kick up your heels, this party is about to get started.
This is hands down my favorite summer salad. It’s particularly great when you’re in a hurry and if you have a surplus of plump zucchini.
If you’ve never heard of a Michelada, you are in for a treat! It’s like a Bloody Mary ran into a Mexican lager and had a party.
Making your own burger buns is much easier than you might think, just start the dough in the morning and by midday your whole house will smell like fresh, buttery bread.
Grilled potatoes with plenty of crisp bacon all bathed in mustardy vinaigrette? Sounds like potato salad has a whole new life at your next BBQ.
If you like a spicy burger that is anything but the norm, you have to try these: piled high with roasted green chiles and ripe slices of avocado and embellished with creamy, spicy chipotle mayo. These are sure to be the star of your next BBQ.
Classic deviled eggs are always scrumptious, but this updated version kicks the pickle relish to the curb and replaces it with lemon zest and fresh herbs.
