Over Labor Day weekend in my hometown, it's customary to throw on a bikini and float down the Sacramento River on inner tubes rented from the liquor store. Others head up to Lake Almanor to soak up their final summer tan (or in my case, cherry red burn). The first weekend of September in Chico feels like a warm summer hug in a way we don't normally get down in The Bay. By this time, the dog days of summer have come and gone, but the sultry heat still begs for a few drippy peaches and cream popsicles to cool you down.

Tropical coconut mango chia pudding http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/08/25/tropical-coconut-mango-chia-pudding/ http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/08/25/tropical-coconut-mango-chia-pudding/#comments Tue, 26 Aug 2014 03:57:14 +0000 http://www.snixykitchen.com/?p=7601 Mango Chia Pudding



I've got a case of the Mondays. This recipe comes to you from our bazillion year old laptop that warns me that the startup disk is full when I try to save something and has a noticeable ding just below the keyboard from that time the corner of my iPhone 3 dove into my once-brand new computer (yes, iPhone 3 - that's how old this computer is). The heavy aluminum dinosaur came out of retirement while my younger, slimmer, faster Macbook Pro got shipped off to the doctor first thing this morning. Sniff Sniff.

Food lover’s guide to Tokyo http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/08/19/food-lovers-guide-to-tokyo/ http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/08/19/food-lovers-guide-to-tokyo/#comments Tue, 19 Aug 2014 08:12:33 +0000 http://www.snixykitchen.com/?p=7538 Yanaka Ginza



You can order all the comfortable walking shoes you want in preparation for a two-week trek all around Taiwan and Japan, but it won't matter if you don't bring socks. Don't try to fool yourself with those little half sock liners that hide so well under ballet flats - they don't count. Your feet will still have goosebumps all day long in the chilled autumn air. No amount of jackets or gloves will keep you from shivering if your toes are icicles.

Oven-baked pineapple fried rice with cashews and tofu http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/08/12/oven-baked-pineapple-fried-rice-cashews-tofu/ http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/08/12/oven-baked-pineapple-fried-rice-cashews-tofu/#comments Wed, 13 Aug 2014 00:55:19 +0000 http://www.snixykitchen.com/?p=7500 Pineapple Fried Rice



I'm learning to measure my productivity on different scales depending on the day. It's easy to feel accomplished on hyperactive get-it-done days, when tasks crossed off a to-do list display my success. Visible outcomes. These usually come dressed as Saturday house-wide cleaning sessions, or multi-course homemade Sunday brunches.

Honey roasted fig and goat cheese popsicles http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/08/07/honey-roasted-fig-and-goat-cheese-popsicles/ http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/08/07/honey-roasted-fig-and-goat-cheese-popsicles/#comments Fri, 08 Aug 2014 07:26:19 +0000 http://www.snixykitchen.com/?p=7475 Fig and Goat Cheese Popsicles



Most of my Friday evenings as a kid were spent at the ballpark. If my brother was playing, I could be found scrounging around under the bleachers for lost change to buy a few 5¢ smarties pops. For the record, you can make a racket with this strategy; I once even found a $20 bill that after a week of no one claiming from the little league ballpark lost and found became mine. Do you know how many smarties pops you can buy with $20??
