Dinner with David is the result of cooking for about seven years for my husband, David, and learning some tricks along the way that I’d like to remember (in my old age, ha!) and share with others. I learned to cook after college with the likes of Rachael Ray 30 Minutes Meals and Everyday Food. At the time, I was a full-time professional working in food PR, so I learned to cook flavorful –  somewhat healthy – meals, quickly but thoughtfully. Many times, our dinners were the result of taking creative liberty with flavors and ingredients, once I got the gist of basic recipe principles.

We lived in fast-paced Silicon Valley for four years, so convenience and technology became key. I receive bi-weekly deliveries from Farm Fresh to You, look for ideas on the Epicurious iPad app or Twitter (@dinnerwithdavid), and archive my restaurant adventures on FoodSpotting.

*New* Life Savors – As I juggle a fulfilling career, heavy media consumption, health/fitness, social commitments (hello babies and weddings!), and general housekeeping, I’ve learned some time-saving tricks that make room for more quality pursuits, like time in the kitchen and adventures with David. And you’ll see that technology – and a little imagination – plays a big part in that.

I would love to hear from you! Please share any suggestions or riffs on the recipes I’ve posted or discoveries you’ve made to free up time in your life for the good stuff.

  3. Hi – I tried your birthday enchiladas – they were delicious. I work with Maria Thomas (Angela’s mom) and she told me about your blog. I love to cook and try new recipes too!

  4. Happy Blog Birthday Amy!

    My favorite fruit and meat combos are: sliced apples, sauteed in butter with a sprinkle of cinnamon and brown sugar with any type of pork meat and mango salsa with salmon.

    Keep it up!

  5. Welcome to the Bay Area Food Blog group!! I’m new to the group as well — I seem to be the last to know about such things. Looking forward to your posts and to meeting you in future meetups!
