Oatmeal Raisin Muffins

Happy New Year! Did you have a fun time ringing in 2012? I went to San Francisco with a group of friends and we had a great time dancing in the new year.

Now it’s time for resolutions, which often includes healthy lifestyle choices like eating better and exercising. For that reason, I’m taking this and next week off from posting decadent desserts. I can’t promise I’ll keep it up though – last month I made cupcakes, macarons and whoopie pies that I haven’t had a chance to share yet. Plus, I have my eye on some more desserts I want to make. So make sure you keep up with that exercise resolution! Next week I’ll be sharing a great way for you to exercise at home, including a giveaway to try it for free, so be sure to check back on Tuesday.

Selland's opening a second location in January

Selland's opening a second location in January

If you've been to Selland's in East Sacramento, then you know this is the place to go if you are looking for unique wines, great food and a great atmosphere.  I love them for their wine tasting events and weekly "dinner for 2" specials for $25 (including a bottle of wine).

Naturally, when I heard they were opening a second location in El Dorado Hills, I was thrilled.

They don't have an exact date yet, but say they will open hopefully by mid-January. The new Selland’s will have the same Café Menu as the East Sacramento location as well as their dinner and brunch specials, a full service Bakery and an even bigger wine shop.

Turkey Hunting in Madrid

Turkey Hunting in Madrid

Have you ever found yourself in the market for a Thanksgiving turkey in Spain? Well, I have and learned they are even more rare than a café open in the late afternoon. 

While studying abroad in England I got to meet up with a friend in Madrid while her ship docked for a few days in Cadiz. We had grand ideas of washing away any homesickness with an American Thanksgiving celebration with friends. As I soon discovered, turkey is geographically native to the Americas and not a common dish in Europe, even on (gasp) what I consider the most sacred holiday of the year! My grandmother told me later she had the same experience while living in Switzerland in the 60's - and Thanksgiving Goose it was!

We quickly got over this travel speed bump and set out to discover the city and find our own feast. As weary travelers we wholly embraced the standstill that overtakes the city at siesta time.
