I think love and strawberries go together. After all, you can dip strawberries in chocolate, or drop them into champagne, or slice them up and serve with ice cream drizzled with chocolate. All of these are romantic and put you in the mind for love. And between Yes!Chef! and myself, we have been making quite a few strawberry recipes lately.

We are excited to celebrate the Super Bowl this weekend because
1. Finally my NINERS have made it back to the bowl!!!
And, 2. some friends of ours have asked us to come down to their beautiful home in Sacramento and spend the weekend (pictures to follow.)
***UPDATE on motto: So we had a little dust-up with our new (and I thought original) motto: “Love people. Cook them tasty food.” That motto actually belongs to Penzy spices. I’m so sorry that we used it. When I told Yes!Chef! about it and asked him for a new motto, the first words out of his mouth were, “because life is too short to eat crappy food.” Well, that is true. I cleaned it up a little and rewrote it on the chalkboard until I can think of something else that may be a little less…ummm…blunt. If you can think of anything, leave me a comment. Again, I apologize to Penzy Spices.
It was Yes!Chef!’s and my anniversary on Tuesday. Y!C! invited me out to dinner to celebrate. We don’t go out to dinner much (usually on our anniversary and my birthday), so this was a real treat. We headed to Placerville to a little restaurant called The Luna Cafe. It’s a small cafe tucked away in downtown Placerville. We walked in and were warmly greeted by the owner. There were several other couples there but because it was a Tuesday night, the place was not full. We had a great time and met several other couples in the restaurant who were also celebrating their anniversaries. The hospitality of the owner was wonderful and the food was more than plentiful.
“How about a lunch date?” my friend, Pam, asked me the other day via email. I’m always up for getting together with her, so we met yesterday at a little French cafe called Cafe Rolle in Sacramento, CA. It’s located in one of my favorite parts of Sacramento.
UPDATE 05/09/12: More pictures added from the photo shoot I did at this wonderful bistro located in Cameron Park, CA.
Chef John welcomed my husband and I into his bistro with a friendly smile and big hug. Yes!Chef! (Corby) interned with Chef John for over a year learning much from the Cordon Bleu (France) graduate. Chef John’s use of fresh ingredients and elegant cooking style is something you just don’t get in many restaurants. The food tastes as good as it looks.
I will be going back as a customer and to photograph his lunch and breakfast foods. A very yummy assignment!
