Columbia's "1905" Salad

This weekend my boyfriend and I took a day trip up to St. Augustine for a day at the beach with some friends. After a long day soaking up sun, we decided to pay a visit one of the best restaurants around, Columbia Restaurant. In 2005, their "1905" salad was voted one of the top 10 salads in the US. Both of us in the mood for something light, we decided to try to make their salad. This is their recipe is straight from their website, so here goes nothing.

Beer Steamed Clams

I saw this recipe a few months back and I have been dying to try it. It is delicious and other than the slightly tedious cleaning of the clams, this recipe is quite easy.


How To: Clean Clams

My first attempt at cooking with some clams. If you don't want your food to have a ton of grit, the clams need to be cleaned.

Boston Cream Cupcakes

I am on a cupcake kick. Yesterday was the Hogtown Craft Beer Festival. We live within walking distance, so our place was the official crash pad afterward the festival to sober up. Cupcakes with oozy, gooey-ness sounded perfect after drinking beer all afternoon.
