This week has been busy, we've been trying to get contractors lined up for all the different projects for our new house. Apparently, all contractors in the Bay are busy until next year so there's that but we finally managed to rope a few people in after a lot of googling, yelp research and asking people. With all the chaos that is to ensue, I'm super excited about the prospect of all the fun aspects of working on a home and making it my own. 

My first cover in print just came out last week. Every issue of the Edible Silicon Valley magazine features the work of one local artist (from the food industry) and this time the lovely folks at Edible SV did a little feature on my work and also asked me to share some of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes. You can find this issue at most stores in the San Francisco Bay Area and also online at their website

A lot can be said about a sandwich, in many ways I think of it as a gateway to my heart because a good sandwich can take me to my happy place. I like mine toasted and grilled, stuffed pretty full, yet pressed down and to compact and hold everything inside together. Most of the time, my sandwiches have cheese and if there's cheese, there'd better be some amount of heat involved to melt it.

These sandwiches have two stages of grilling. The first is when big, fat thick slices of garam masala seasoned sweet potatoes go on the grates and the second time it's the panini stuffed with kale leaves,cheese and crispy bacon. And along with this panini there's a hot and spicy Sriracha flavored mayo to dip and enjoy every bite! I also like to top each sandwich off with a fresh fried egg which also works perfect for a weekend brunch item.

Good news guys! We got a house. After months of hunting in this crazy San Francisco/Bay Area market, it finally happened earlier this week. I'm looking forward to having my own kitchen and doing whatever the heck I want in my own space. Painting the walls any color I want, whenever I want, etc. etc. One headache down and I'm now jumping into the next one (thought it's an exciting one), renovations, so wish me luck! 

You can make an ice cream out of a lot of things and though it might be getting chilly in some parts, ice cream is still and always a good idea! Every year, I love to make one special ice cream that's fall inspired and this year, it's all about pumpkins! This roasted pumpkin ice cream has a little bit of creamy labneh blended in to give it a fresh tangy flavor but there's also this deep and dark, sweet balsamic and maple syrup reduction that you might just want to drizzle over every scoop, again and again.
