The Big 3-0 Recipe

The Big 3-0

07.03.10 by Jackie
Turning 30 isn't as scary as I had imagined! Yesterday was my birthday, and to celebrate my 30th trip around the sun, I spent the day in San Francisco surrounded by my family. 10 years ago I took my first trip to San Francisco, and I didn’t know that it was going to become my home, or that I was going to meet the love of my life (and his wonderful little sisters of course). It’s amazing how time flies. Back then, Lulu’s 3rd sister (the one with all the allergies) was only 6 months old. When I got married 6 years ago, my little munchkin (Lulu’s youngest sister) was only 3 months old. Not only are they wonderful little sisters-in-law, but they make great mile markers as well!

Father's Day Recipes Recipe

Father's Day Recipes

06.16.10 by Jackie

Father's Day is this Sunday, and we’ve been brainstorming ideas of how to celebrate it. It’s probably obvious by now, but our family is all about the food, so we settled on preparing my father-in-law’s favorite dishes. I put up some recipe suggestions in case you're planning to cook as well. Naturally you'll want to pick the dishes that the dad(s) in your life likes. If he's a meat eater, fire up the barbecue. If he's a chocolate lover, focus on making a super decadent dessert. Even homemade nachos and other party food could work. As for Daddy (my father-in-law), I'll definitely make a large pot of masala chai for him as he's a "chai-oholic". Regardless of his preference, don't forget to add the most important ingredients: a spoonful of love, a pinch of affection and a dash of tenderness.

Papa (my dad) still lives in Paris and it made me so happy to talk to him last night. I won't be able to make Papounet's Vietnamese coffee or cook his favorite steak or crab this Dad’s Day, but I'll be thinking about him.

What to Visit in San Antonio

04.03.10 by Jackie
Since the girls are currently on Spring Break, we decided it would be a good time to take the family on a little vacation. My father-in-law has been spending a lot of time in San Antonio lately on business, and he suggested that we all go out to see the city. We spent this past weekend in San Antonio and had such a blast! It is a vibrant town with culture, history and delicious food.
