This past Sunday, I attended my 8th Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco’s Moscone Center. It was amazing and fun.
And while cruising the aisles, I saw this bald man from behind, wearing a bright red jersey. I thought to myself, “Is that Duff?”
When I got closer, I realized it was! If you don’t know, Duff Goldman is the star of the Food Network Show “Ace of Cakes”.
I love, love, love Philz Coffee! For the longest time, we had to trek to the Mission and brave difficult parking to satisfy our Philz craving.
But finally, finally Philz Coffee opened up in South San Francisco, my old neighborhood. It’s in the brand new Westborough Square, replacing the old Caffino.
And I love that there is a free parking lot and I don’t have to deal with limited San Francisco street parking!
The new Philz here is spacious and airy with a high ceiling. It’s also a lot cleaner feeling than the original Philz in the Mission.
My go-to drink is the very popular Mint Mojito, an iced coffee flavored with fresh mint leaves. It’s not too sweet with a hint of mint, a perfectly refreshing drink on a hot day.
My daughter and I made these gluten-free, paleo brownie today and they were AMAZING!
I’ve been looking for a sugar-free, gluten-free brownie recipe because I’m temporarily on a dairy-free, gluten-free, and sugar-free diet.
That’s a lot of foods to avoid. But I have to do this until I rebalance my body.
There are soooo many options now for strict diets. The Paleo diet is dairy-free, gluten-free, and sugar-free.
