Cooking is a commonsense practice, not alchemy. Listening and watching closely while you cook will reveal a richly shaded language understood by all the senses - the degrees of a simmer, the aroma of a roast telling you it is done, the stages of elasticity of kneaded dough, the earthy scent of a vegetable just pulled from the ground - it is everything to mind these details. This is cooking. ~ Chez Panisse Cookbook

Fresco and Marigold
My mom came and visited me this weekend, so I got to go to two of my favorite restaurants - Fresco and Marigold! They were both sooo good.
I forgot to take pictures of appetizers but we both got the roasted vegetable salad which was great.
