  • Caracara Tini

    Cara Cara-tini Fizz 🍊 🍸

    For those of you unfamiliar with the fabulously juicy, seedless Cara Cara navel orange, it is the physical embodiment of Le Voov!. Both it’s deep-reddish-pink flesh and the sweet, succulent citrus flavor will make you a believer in heavenly delights. Containing only half the acidity of a traditional navel orange, Cara Cara’s are the perfect cocktail mixer. As one sips the juice of this deep-hued citrus, subtle hints of cherry and blackberry tones can be noted lingering on the back of the palate. The dynamic, complex flavor makes this fruit a perfectly adventurous choice for dipping in chocolate fondue! (We’ll talk about that later….)

    Le Voov! Product Review: HIC Eggsact Egg Timer

    This little handy device makes for perfectly cooked eggs. I just place the Eggsact Egg Timer in the pot with the eggs and wait for it to change color from red to purple-black. The color changes slowly from the outer rim towards the center as the eggs cook, indicating soft, medium or hard-boiled for perfectly cooked eggs every time!

    Le Voov! Product Review: Pyrex Simply Store 20-Piece Food Storage Set

    I purchased this 20-piece Pyrex food storage set years ago when setting up my first real epicurean kitchen. What makes these containers so Splendiferous is that they stack beautifully in the refrigerator/freezer, yet nest together to store in an easy, compact manner. They are made in the USA and the plastic lids are both dishwasher safe and BPA-free for convenient, safe food storage.

    We stumbled across this tapas restaurant in the Mission District of San Francisco. We weren’t even thinking about lunch, but the rich, earthy aroma coming from the kitchen lured us in like moths to the flame. The colorful, art-filled walls and the bustling atmosphere contributed greatly to the lively tenor. Our waiter Jose gave us a few thoughtful suggestions.
