Peanut butter cookies with semi sweet chocolate chips in every bite. These peanut butter chocolate chip cookies are the perfect treats.
There’s less than two weeks left until Thanksgiving. I feel like there’s still so much to do and so much to plan. You would think that after years of doing this, we’d all have it down by now. But nope. Every year, it feels the same. That last minute rush to get everything together.
If you’re in the Bay Area and looking for a place to explore, Filoli in Woodside is the perfect place to go.
My friend Jen and I went to Filoli last Friday for a girls’ day out. I am so obsessed with architecture so I loved walking through the huge Georgian era mansion and admiring absolutely everything. And if you love gardens, Filoli has acres of gardens with so many flowers and plants.
Earlier this week, we stopped in Treasure Island to watch the sunset. Have you ever been to Treasure Island? It’s just outside of the city, and it has the perfect view of the San Francisco skyline. We’ve been lucky lately with the weather. Slightly warmer days with clear skies. So it’s the perfect time to catch the sunset. Can you spot the Golden Gate Bridge in the background?
My sister and I bought tickets to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. The storyline takes place 20 years in the future with Harry Potter all grown up, married with kids. Since the play is long, it was split into two parts on two consecutive nights. I’m not sure what I was expecting, but it was just sooo good. The storyline and the special effects were so amaaazing. It was worth the price of the tickets and I would highly recommend watching it if you can.
There is soo much to look forward to. From the change in the colors of the leaves to the warm and comforting foods we all like to indulge in as the weather becomes cooler. I feel like the moment it becomes October, the rest of the year follows so quickly. I never seem to have enough time to enjoy the holiday season.
But there are so many good eats to share with you!
Here are some of my favorite fall recipes! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
Have I mentioned that I have an obsession with kaya buns, right now? I probably already have.
There’s a bakery called Breadbelly in San Francisco that makes pastries that are inspired by Asian flavors. My favorite by far is their kaya buns. It’s similar to the pineapple bun. Soft bread filled with a pandan coconut cream and topped with a pandan coconut crumble. It’s the perfect balance of flavor and so addictive. If you’re in SF, you need to get yourself to this small bakery and get their kaya bun and their kaya toast. Sooooo good.
