Halloween in downtown Los Altos, where ya could die from the cuteness.
Gorgeous Green Bean
Cutest-ever Chili Pepper
Morose Macaroni and Cheese
And, my favorite: a dog named Truffle, posing as a sushi platter
I write about food, interior design, and art for a variety of publications. And I scribble constantly in the margins of my cookbooks, recipe binders, travel diaries and interview notebooks. These ideas and tips are the margin notes of my culinary life and the core of this blog.I ask only that comments never include a mention of peas -- that dinnertime horror of my clean-your-plate childhood, that blight of springtime restaurant menus, that staple of banquet entrees. Margin Notes is a Pea-free Zone.
