I heart the Berkeley Bowl

Living on the west coast after growing up with Wegmans had left a hole in my grocery store heart - until I discovered the Berkeley Bowl. They don't have the wide array of self-serve food like Wegman's Market Cafe - but they ROCK in the produce department.

A pint of perfect raspberries for $1.49. Beautiful heirloom tomatoes for $2.49 a pound - and enough exotic vegetables to keep me wondering what to do with them for a year. Take THAT Whole Foods! I still love my Wegmans, but in the meantime, we can enjoy a delicious meal like this on the cheap. Mmmm.

Is that the corn with white lavender honey butter?!

This corn was just normal corn. I had the grilled corn with white lavender honey butter at a restaurant called "Fish" in Sausalito. If I can get the chef to share the recipe, I'll let you know. They've shared before, so stay tuned.
