Elisabeth @ Food and Thrift Finds at the SFO airport? Boy! was I gutsy or just plain nuts? Either way, I found a sense of accomplishment and it was also part of a "to-do" marked off my bucket list. What is amazing is that I got to attend Foodbuzz Festival 2011 and took a photo with Chef Tyler Florence. That was the highlight and epitome of the trip, apart from the bus ride across The Golden Gate Bridge and checking out the ever famous Alamo Square. Plus I got to meet a couple more new friends (Gina, Nami, Visda, Bonni, Devaki, and Angela) where I feel fortunate enough that we still stay in touch either via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or in blog comments. Unfortunately this year my foodie friends, I won't be able to make a trip down as I may not be able to get away. A quick shout out to all my friends in SF and to my local foodie friends (Ping, Veronica and Jes who's all the way in Singapore). You ladies ROCK! "hope you are all doing well and continue to cook and bake to inspire us all".
blueberry maple syrup and my left over-shell tarts (*do double up the volume of the measurement to make 2 dozens) which were pre-made a day or two in advanced. You will taste the smokey caramelised taste in the blueberry maple syrup where the maple syrup is heavily infused with fresh blueberries. This helps cuts the richness of the creamy fluffy cheats way cheesecake. To make your lives simpler, you can always opt to buy and use pre-made baked shell tarts from here or at your local bakeries.
Have a wonderful week ahead., THANK YOU to old and new foodie friends who continues to support Chic & Gorgeous Treats. There are more exciting posts lined up, so do pop over and buzz me here.
