celebrex side effects reviews

  • Whether for a family, partners, singles, or the urban tribe of friends and neighbors, sharing a meal together is essential to our culture. Marion Cunningham, author of the Fanny Farmer Cookbook, once said to Rosemary, “Dining together goes back to the roots of our existence and is basic to our culture as human beings”. Our passion for creating recipes revolves around the enjoyment of sharing meals and delicious food.

About Our Blog

What’s special about GET COOKING SIMPLY

  • Recipes are developed by two experienced food professionals, who also happen to be long-time colleagues and friends.
  • Easy everyday fare. Yummy flavor twists. Seasonal treats. Specialty splashes: simple interpretations of the food trends and ethnic tastes that represent our home — the diverse flavors of the San Francisco Bay Area.
  • More food, less talk. Straight-forward weekly posts from Rita or Rosie, and on occasion, from our local foodie community — cookbook authors, cooking school teachers, food writers, and other culinary professionals.


Appealing – delicious food, done simply

Approachable – realistic, reliable recipes for everyday life

Accurate – tested recipes from food professionals’ kitchens

Achievable – clear instructions, correct measurements, equipment, time & temperature

Side Notes:
Many of our recipes have been developed for our clients.
Our photos are by professional photographers and stylists when noted. All others are au naturale shots, taken during recipe development. Although we’ve done our share of professional styling, our emphasis is on the recipe, not the lighting and propping. Let us know what you think.

    Hey Ladies… You ROCK! Love the blog- photos are great and the recipes look yummy! I just happen to have made roasted beets last night and need something fun to do with them. It looks like I’ll be serving your ‘Beet, Feta & Basil’ salad tonight to my dinner guests! Thanks for the idea!
