Dungeness Crab Fest

I love crab. Growing up in California, whenever we had crab, it was usually the Dungeness variety. Though I won't turn down their blue, king, and soft-shell cousins, I'm generally used to these guys, which are bountiful on the West coast of North America.

Holidays in California

I've been on quite the blogging hiatus. To be honest, I've had good reasons with the crazy holidays, chaotic family emergencies, and dealing with the French Consulate and Campus France (which is the bane of my existence so don't get me started). Originally I intended to be back in California for 3 weeks, and now have postponed my return to Paris by another 3 weeks. My baking has slowed down quite a bit too. In fact I made a fraisier I didn't get to try, and meringues that were forgotten in the oven as I ran off to tend to a family member.
