Scrambled eggs with tomatoes, jalapeños and spinach is my new favorite breakfast.  Plus I add just about 1/2 a slice of bacon to give it a little smoky flavor, but not too many additional calories.  For the an even better experience I throw on some fresh salsa.   I discovered this combination vac...
In the Fall in Northern California you never know what the weather will be like.  Today is cold and overcast and just last Wednesday we were having a little heat wave so I drove over the mountain to go spend a couple of hours with my son on the beach in Half Moon Bay, CA.  I thought this shot tur...
