Dream Dinners – Camden – San Jose

The pre-made meal service seems to be a fast growing market. Many Silicon Valley families like mine are strapped for time and dinner seems to be the first priority to drop. With both spouses working and now with a baby to take care of, I’m finally admitting that I need help to get healthy meals […]

Blue Isle Mediterranean Yogurt Spread

When Blue Isle told me they were sending samples of their Mediterranean spreads, I thought I would get one or two containers or at least a coupon to get some at my local store. Behold, they sent me 10 containers, two of each flavor. What to do, what to do…   I brought the spreads […]

Christmas 2015 Recap – Ribs and Dim Sum

The holidays are great because I get days off work and so does everyone else so we can get together more often. There’s always good food involved. Appetizers with cheeses, sweet potato chips, seasoned nuts, oatmeal cookies, and lots of sparkling ciders. I mean, look at this prime rib. And these garlic prawns. And this […]

Did everyone have a great Thanksgiving? It’s a great time for food with family and friends even though many have come to view Thanksgiving as a pre-Christmas.

Primizie Thick Cut Crispbreads

An interesting new snack food came to my attention recently. Primizie Crispbreads sent me samples of their Gouda and Garlic flavored chips (technically it’s bread). Primizie is run by a husband and wife team from Texas who previously owned a catering company.   I was really pleasantly surprised with the balanced flavor in these chips. […]

Whole Foods Diestel Natural Light/Dark Meat Boneless Turkey

With the holidays approaching, my food samples this quarter courtesy of Whole Foods included the Diestel Natural Light and Dark Meat Boneless Turkey. The roasts vary in weight but I would say mine was about 5-7 lbs. They retail for $34.99 at Whole Foods stores. The Diestel turkey is gluten free, hormone and antibiotic free, […]
