http://www.foodnetwork.com/videos/memphis-meatloaf-with-guy-0193998.0193998.html I made a meatloaf inspired by an episode of Dinners Drive ins and Dives. All I can say is OMG! I will never make meatloaf any other way again. Just watch the video at the above link and give it a try…AMAZING!
Another amazing meal at Outer Isle in Murphy’s. Consistently good, fresh and organic. I am officially addicted to the farm to fork idea. Everything they serve they grow or raise, and it makes all the difference. Their menu changes regularly of course, so it never gets boring. Couple that with local wine and you have … More Farm to Fork
I typically don’t drink anything but wine, but my husband introduced me to the best Manhattan I’ve ever had. It’s icy cold, not to sweet, and very refreshing. When I complimented the bartender he told me his secret ingredient that makes it so special…shhh. Emberz not only has a great bar, they also have a … More Manhattan in Sonora
I have to tell you about Christopher’s Italian cuisine downtown on the ground floor of the historic Sonora Inn. They are open all day from breakfast until dinner, but their dinner hour is my favorite (although, I hear they serve french toast made with homemade banana bread…yummy!) When you walk in the first thing you … More Going Italian in Sonora
Okay, I am not a Cab lover, but Inner Sanctum’s cab is incredible. Rich, bright, berry, and smooth. Their tasting room is in downtown Jamestown. Enjoy a flight of their unique wines in a fun atmosphere and maybe you’ll find a new favorite like I did.
Friday my husband and I met for lunch at Pa Pa’s New Roost. I think they serve some of the best casual lunch fare in the county. If you’re hungry for deli style sandwiches with endless meat piled high, this is the place for you. One of my favorite dishes is their Reuben sandwich and … More Pa Pa’s New Roost

This morning we went to breakfast close to home in historic Columbia. In case you don’t know, Columbia is famous for being an old mining town where folks settled in their search for gold during the gold rush of the mid 1800’s. The Nugget Cafe is across the street from Columbia State Park where businesses … More Breakfast in Historic Columbia
Yesterday afternoon was sweltering hot so my husband and I decided to take a break in the shade and grab a light bite at El Jardin in downtown Sonora. It was like we stepped into a mini vacation in Mexico boasting a sweet and shady outdoor seating area while inside was decorated with a tropical … More A Little Mexican Place I know
I recently discovered a lovely white wine (and I am typically not a white wine drinker so this says a lot) that is perfect for these warm summery days. My girlfriends and I were meeting in Murphy’s for lunch on a very warm afternoon and had a little extra time to spare. So what do … More A Lovely White
