Kids love gelatin: the sugary bright colored jigglyness is fun to eat. Natalie Bouey is a mom who wanted to give her kids their favorite treat but to make it more healthy. She’s about to launch her company Rainbow Snacks, a big brand alternative that’s made with only natural colors and flavors and 25% less sugar with vitamin C, and fiber too. And what a fun job for me –an excuse to play.

I love to photo cocktails (and drink them) and I’ve been lately I’ve been doing both for Oakland Magazine’s cocktail column. In every issue the writer finds a delicious drink and gets the recipe from the bartender. I also photo cocktails for Oakland Magazine restaurant reviews too. Between the two, I thought I’d share some favorites…

Of all the cocktails photographed here my favorite was the Pimm’s Cup. It’s made from Pimm’s No. 1, a spirit from Great Britain. You can get a recipe from  www.foodandwine.com, but it’s so dangerously easy  why even bother. Just mix Pimm’s with ginger ale or lemon-lime soda one to one. Add fruit— apples, oranges, cucumber, mint and ice and you’ve got a great way to end the day. Or, for the best version, stop by East End Restaurant and Bar in Alameda.

Check out the recipe for the Featherweight from Oakland Magazine here. It’s perfect for a summer evening.

Anderson Valley is a three-hour trip from San Francisco and is  known more for its rugged beauty and as a “pot growing paradise”. Who knew it is the new spot for pinot noir? I went out there recently for the Wall Street Journal and photographed rising stars in the pinot world:  Jason and Molly Drew of Drew Family Cellars and Wells Guthrie of Copain Wines. I’m excited to return soon to photograph Jason Drew’s 26 acre vineyard in May. blogcollage
