Recipe: Roasted Chicken; Mommie Chicken - 10/30/09 11:02 AM
Why would I include a recipe for roasted chicken, called Mommie Chicken? There are probably as many recipes for roasting chicken as there are chickens. Every time I see my son he asks if I have blogged about "Mommie Chicken" which is how my son refers to my roasted chicken recipe. So to keep peace in the family here is my version of roasted chicken; also known as Mommie Chicken. The real difference is that I roast the chicken Asian style instead of American style. Which means I roast it breast side down. The breast does not get that beautiful brown skin (2 comments)
Anthony Lewis: A general contractor that stands behind his work in Silicon Valley - 10/29/09 10:16 AM
Anthony Lewis is a general contractor that stands behind his work in Silicon Valley. To me the difference between a good and a great contractor is how they handle things that go wrong. Unfortunately sometimes things do go wrong and you need to have them fixed. This is an area that I commend Anthony Lewis for being so extraordinary. Anthony Lewis was the general contractor for the kitchen remodel at my boyfriends house in Silicon Valley. The job was done about a year ago and everything looked great. However, several months after the job was complete faint hairline cracks appeared in (0 comments)
Naglee Park: A Lifestyle Neighborhood - 10/23/09 04:39 PM
Why am I calling Naglee Park a Lifestyle Neighborhood? I know that several buyers I am working with are more interested in what the lifestyle is in the neighborhood and less concerned about what city it is located in. They are looking for a lifestyle neighborhood. I think the reason for this trend is that more and more people telecommute so that they spend more time in their local neighborhood in Silicon Valley than they did ten years ago. When you were never home to enjoy your neighborhood other factors such as closeness to freeways or to schools had a higher priority. Now so many people (0 comments)
Recipe: Fresh marinated beets - 10/22/09 08:27 PM
I love to share recipes and fresh marinated beets is one of my favorites Even realtor's have to do something besides help buy and sell houses. I like to cook and to share my recipes. Please enjoy I love the taste of fresh beets and the marinade I use on them makes a great vinaigrette for a green salad. Sprinkle a little goat cheese on top and you have a meal. I like to use watercress in my greens mixture as I love the contrast of the sweet of the beet with the spiciness of the watercress.

Want a stress free car buying experience? Contact Michael Borbet at Mountain View BMW - 10/20/09 10:30 AM
Yes, you read that right, do you want a stress free car buying experience? If yes, contact Michael Borbet at Mountain View BMW. If there is a transaction that is more stressful than buying a house it is probably buying a car. And for most people they buy cars more often than houses. That is why I am recommending Michael Borbet at Mountain View BMW. Five years ago I started looking for a brand new BMW X3 after driving second hand elderly BMW's for years. I did a great deal of research on the internet and decided on a particular model (0 comments)
