I love to eat. All different types of cuisines! My favorite thing to do is read food blogs, watch shows about foods and eat different foods.

The Serious Eats Doughnut Style Guide

This was one very thorough and mouthwatering post. I can't help but wonder how many doughnuts were harmed/eaten in the making of this write up. ;-)

San Diego: Custom-build Your Burger on an iPad at Stacked

Great write up and beautiful photos. I especially love the photos of the shakes.

San Diego: Great and Not-So-Great Burgers at Searsucker

That is so crazy that your two experiences were so different. Hopefully they are now consistent with your second one.

San Diego: Slidertinis and Sweet Potato Tots at The Gathering Spot Bistrotruck

Sweet potato totes! *Squeal*

Chain Reaction: The $6 Burger at Fleming's

I love Fleming's Happy hour. All the apps on the menu are delicious and I definitely agree that the $6 burger is a good deal. I've never had those potato chips before.

San Diego: Ave 5's Burger is Just Cheffy Enough

Oh I haven't yet tried Ave 5's burger! I'm always looking for a good burger and I like truffle oil on my fries. Time to make a visit.

Cookie-Stuffed Cookies

I just made these this weekend! Like you I didn't really want to use oreos so instead I made them with Girl Scout thin mints. i was really happy with how they turned out. Not only were they really good, but I think they are less "intense" then some of the other cookie combinations. I didn't really feel like I was eating three cookies, just one delicious one. I didn't use Picky Palate's cookie recipe, but used one of my favorite doughy choc chip cookie recipes instead.

Weekend Cook and Tell: Romantic Respites

This weekend I made chocolate heart donuts and mini baked sugar donuts for Valentine's Day. I gave them to my boyfriend and my siblings and everyone loved them!

Weekend Cook and Tell: Cookie Recipe Swap

Seattle restaurant recommendations?

Pike Place Chowder has amazing seafood chowder. I recently went to Seattle for the first time and reviewed a couple of popular touristy places if you are interested http://kirbiecravings.com/outside-of-san-diego/seattle/

Top 5 Frozen Yogurt Shops in San Diego

I love Yogurt World and Yogurtland. So many flavors and toppings! I thought Yogurtland was cheaper than 38cents/oz though, but maybe I'm just remembering wrong.

Weekend Cook and Tell: Processor Power

I used mine this weekend to mix the dough for my chocolate bread http://www.kirbiecravings.com/2010/09/chocolate-bread.html

Weekend Cook and Tell: A Fond Farewell to Summer (Produce)

I went out to buy some peaches to make a white peach buckle before these beautiful, sweet peaches are out of season. http://www.kirbiecravings.com/2010/09/white-peach-buckle.html

Weekend Cook and Tell: Vive la France!

I made French Macaron ice cream sandwiches this weekend! Didn't even realize I fit the weekend challenge until now. http://www.kirbiecravings.com/2010/07/macaron-ice-cream-sandwiches-matcha-macarons-with-pistachio-ice-cream.html

Weekend Cook and Tell: Make it Cheesy

I made a rosemary and cheddar cheese beer bread this weekend. http://www.kirbiecravings.com/2010/03/rosemary-cheese-beer-bread.html

'Brutta ma Buona' in Taiwan, Part 1: Fan Tuan

This is one of my favorite foods. It isn't always so ugly looking though. Some are wrapped nicely like a burrito. The ones made with purple rice are pretty.

Seriously Asian: How to Make Mochi by Hand

I always use the already made glutinous sweet rice flour when I make mochi, but I have been wanting to make my own mochi with the traditional pounding of rice, etc. Thanks for this great tutorial!

Weekend Cook and Tell: Superfoods

I made some healthy green tea muffins with blueberries and pomegranates. The recipe uses very little sugar or butter. http://www.kirbiecravings.com/2010/01/green-tea-muffins-with-blueberries-and-pomegranates.html
In the past I've also made green tea yogurt cakes http://www.kirbiecravings.com/2009/07/easy-tasty-matcha-green-tea-yogurt-cakes.html and green tea latte http://www.kirbiecravings.com/2009/10/matcha-green-tea-latte.html

Cook the Book: Matcha Tea Leaf Shortbreads

Thanks for the info Caroline!

Cook the Book: Matcha Tea Leaf Shortbreads

I love this recipe, which I also found a few weeks ago. I want to make the leaf shape but I'm still looking for the cookie cutter in those shapes. I definitely plan on serving leaf shaped cookies with a cup of tea once I find those cookie cutters. This recipe was a lot easier to work with compared to other matcha tea shortbread recipes I've found in the past. I made Christmas trees when I tried out the recipe http://www.kirbiecravings.com/2009/12/green-tea-shortbread-trees.html

Weekend Cook and Tell: Holiday Bringalongs

Every year I meet with my extended family to celebrate the holidays. We went out to each this year, but I baked up a few desserts and gave each family a bag of Christmas treats to take home. I made red velvet rose cupcakes, gingerbread family cookies, soft sugar cookies and green tea shortbread cookies. http://www.kirbiecravings.com/2009/12/christmas-desserts-roundup.html
