I'm back ... and on a 'roll

I've just come back from a week-long vacation in sunny Los Angeles, which explains my recent absence from the blogosphere. But just because I wasn't cooking, doesn't mean that I didn't eat well.

My culinary adventures in La-La Land included an excellent seafood arrabiatta at Mirabelle in West Hollywood, tasty tuna tartare at Taste on Melrose, pretty amazing pizza at Mario Batali's Pizzeria Mozza, and something called "Geisha Lips" at Geisha House on Hollywood Boulevard. But it wasn't all fancy food all the time. I also enjoyed LA's finest in fast food, too. If you have the chance, you've gotta try PinkBerry, which is the best frozen yogurt on the planet, and Beard Papa's cream puffs could easily become habit-forming. Last but not least, I wasn't leaving California without having a Double-Double at In-N-Out Burger. Seriously, they're worth the trip.

Now that I'm back to reality on the East Coast, I'll be back to blogging tomorrow with a small stockpile of recipes I cooked before I left. Stay tuned.

And finally, I'm happy to report that while I was away, gourmetalltheway was added to The Foodie Blogroll. Check out the nifty widget in the sidebar on the left.
