If you ever find yourself in San Francisco, be sure to spend some time in one of my favorite areas of the city. The Ferry Building on the Embarcadero. Aside from the amazing views the Ferry Building affords it also is a grand marketplace that fosters to the local farmers and artisanal food community. My top stops while visiting are:

-Cowgirl Creamery: A full service European style cheese shop that carries it's own cheese along with cheeses from the US to Europe.

-Miette: "Miette" in French means "little crumb" and you will be eating every last one when you treat yourself to one (or two) of their French style pastries!

-Slanted Door: A modern Vietnamese restaurant with amazing food and an equally amazing view of the Bay Bridge to match.

-The Gardener: Owned by a former Landscape designer and avid gardner, you'll find everything from Japanese scissors to adorable terra cotta pots to place in your windowsill. I always find something I want to take home.

Photography by Momma known to everyone else, besides my sisters, as Margaret Washington. Before the day we shot this she had never looked at a blog other than mine. At lunch I showed her a few of my favorite bloggers (a list will be coming soon). When showing her the blog Atlantic Pacific she exclaimed "She is so tall and blond and striking, great style and can wear anything!" Agreed.

Happy Fourth of July!!! To get in the spirt of the day I baked this, oh so yummy, Blueberry Raspberry Pie. I used Barefoot Contessa's pie crust recipe(foolproof)and this recipe from Allrecipe.com for the filling. Delicious! Enjoy:)

Perfect Pie Crust:

12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) very cold unsalted butter

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 tablespoon sugar

1/3 cup very cold vegetable shortening

6 to 8 tablespoons (about 1/2 cup) ice water

Dice the butter and return it to the refrigerator while you prepare the flour mixture. Place the flour, salt, and sugar in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade and pulse a few times to mix. Add the butter and shortening. Pulse 8 to 12 times, until the butter is the size of peas. With the machine running, pour the ice water down the feed tube and pulse the machine until the dough begins to form a ball. Dump out on a floured board and roll into a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Cut the dough in half. Roll each piece on a well-floured board into a circle, rolling from the center to the edge, turning and flouring the dough to make sure it doesn't stick to the board. Fold the dough in half, place in a pie pan, and unfold to fit the pan. Repeat with the top crust.

My 'patient' husband, Shaun, took these pics along the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, France while honeymooning! More honeymoon pics to come:) We had a very relaxing start to our trip while in Nice and found, what is now one of our favorite dining spots....La Reserve De Nice! For those who have a weakness for a French gastronomic meal, it's a must. Tres magnifique!! I should warn you when it comes to dining in France, if you have a weakness for cheese (which I do), you will gain weight. I swear to God, I gained four pounds and I owe it all to French cheese! Ok, maybe French wine too. ;)
