MISSION DELECTABLE

Hello, there. Welcome to Mission Delectable!

Mission Delectable is a blog about delicious, homemade food, and about my eating adventures in San Francisco. My goal here (or, should I say, mission) is to make satisfying recipes that you can realistically cook on weekday nights after work—plus more involved recipes for when you’re feeling adventurous and/or have a little free time on the weekend. Most of what you’ll see here is seasonal and vegetarian. I’m not, however, a vegetarian. I just love fresh, seasonal vegetables, and also consciously try to eat less meat. So while most of the recipes here are meatless, you’ll see some meat sneak in here and there (hello, pancetta). Enjoy.

THE COOK

I’m Kirsten, an attorney living in San Francisco’s Bernal Heights neighborhood (we used to live in the Mission, but recently moved up the hill), and working in San Francisco’s Financial District. I love food—cooking it and (especially) eating it. I love wine. And I love photography and pretty things.  I started this blog as a place to organize all my cooking and food-related experiments, ideas, and adventures, and also as a creative outlet, a reprieve from what (let’s be honest) can often be a boring and stressful day job.

THE SOUS-CHEF (A.K.A THE HUSBAND)

Patrick’s also an attorney here in San Francisco. We met in New York back in 2005, and (lucky me) I convinced him to move to my home state of California after we graduated from law school. We married in Napa in April 2009, and were on our honeymoon in Mexico when swine flu broke out (not so lucky us). He’s a fantastic sous-chef—I am especially thankful for his amazing pizza dough making skills—and a dishwasher extraordinaire. He’s also a musician, and often regales me with his piano and guitar playing.

THE BABY

Meet Wyatt: the latest addition to our family, born on July 17, 2012. He’s one happy and handsome little man, and we’re completely smitten with him. He loves hugs and snuggles, and he loves when his crazy parents act super ridiculous in an attempt to see some of his sweet smiles and giggles. We think he’s pretty amazing and awesome.

THE ANIMAL WHO LIVES AMONGST US

Meet Scout: our crazy, lovable dingo-like-Husky-German-Shepherd-who-knows-what-else-mix that we adopted from the SPCA when she was just a pup. She loves bones, squeaky balls, and trying to figure out what’s going on with those darn dogs on the t.v. (where did they come from? how did they get into the house?).

    Wow Kirsten! This blog is amazing! Such beautiful pictures and tasty recepies. I have to try one of them this weekend. I see you love cheese, maybe you should try something with the “crazy norwegian” brown cheese 😉 Keep up the good work! I’m a fan and will be checking in frequently!

      Thanks so much, Mirjam! Seeing that it’s “arguably the weirdest cheese ever,” I think I will have to use it!

    I am sitting here with your Mother-in-law. She has been raving about you and I now know why…
    Your blog is wonderful and I am going to try one of your recipes. Maureen is going to make cauliflower
    soup for us tomorrow here on the Chesapeake.
    Thank you for sharing your talents and the time it takes for your fabulous photography.
    Sincerely,
    Helene ( Elizabeth Ewing’s Grand-de)
