Scallop-Shrimp Ceviche
Ceviche  is easily one of my top three favorite appetizers of all time. It's a simple dish of seafood "cooked" by the acid in lemons and limes. It's so easy, but it requires incredibly fresh ingredients. I usually ask my fish monger which is the best choice...

Jake's Mint Julep
This is a first and I'm still in shock. My husband was in the kitchen. And he made something I'm going to share! On. My. Blog. Let me explain: I know that my husband ate before he met me. He must have cooked, too. But in the seventeen years that we have bee...

Campfire Salmon
One of our favorite camping dinners is campfire fish. It's so easy and flexible. Use whatever fish you have. Use some kind of citrus, some kind of herbs, and some kind of oil. That's all there is to it. The parchment and foil pouch keeps it moist and it's r...

Blue Lake Trout
I love fish. I love cooking fish. I love eating fish. I do  not  love catching fish. And neither does Jake. Sitting on a boat, quietly, waiting for fish to bite. Ugh. Did I mention the silent part. Ugh. I'm just not that patient...or quiet. Jake has fisherm...

D's Camp Kale Salad
When my garden goddess of a sister-in-law invited us to "come take as much kale as [we] wanted" from her beds, as we headed to the coast, I don't know if she really understood what that means to the Enthusiastic Kitchen Elf. He loves his kale! He plucked an...

Elderflower Soda
I've been mildly obsessed with elderflowers recently. So, as we were driving to our first campsite - during our 10-day camping trip around northern California - and I spotted the distinctive puff of creamy-hued flowers, I made a mental note to go pick some ...

I have been going to this office for years, but what prompted me to write a review was that I just took my two kids to see Dr. Sethi. I'm not sure why I've been avoiding taking them to an eye doctor; they see their regular pediatrician annually. But we finally went and it turns out that one of my kids needs glasses, the other one doesn't. What I liked about this experience: they did a COMPLETE eye screening on the boys, including visual acuity, pupil function, extraocular muscle motility, visual fields, intraocular pressure and ophthalmoscopy through a dilated pupil. Both the doctor and assistants were patient with the boys' many questions and thorough in their answers. I appreciate any business that doesn't rush me out and speaks to my kids directly, not always through the parent. In the end - with my child who needs glasses - they were thorough with their sizing, cognizant of my budget, and delivered everything in a timely manner. I highly recommend Dr. Sethi's office and was just reminded - through their email system - that it's my turn for my annual eye exam.
