Bacon Cheeseburger @ Flame Gourmet Burgers

Bacon Cheeseburger @ Flame

At the suggestion of a good friend, I went to Flame Gourmet Burgers on College Avenue near Ashby Avenue in Berkeley for a late lunch. I had the bacon cheeseburger, steak fries, and raspberry lemonade. My burger prepared medium well with cheddar cheese and smoked applewood bacon on a toasted sesame seed bun. I was very satisfied with my meal and it was all for under $15 with tip. I will definitely be visiting Flame again soon.

This was my first cake of 2010. The cold oven pound cake gets its name because you do not preheat the oven as you normally would for most cakes. You combine our ingredients, poured them into a tube pan, place it in the oven, set the oven to 325 degrees, and bake for 1 hour and 25 minutes. It turned out well but next time I will use room temperature eggs so the cake will rise better.

It has been awhile since I have written anything here. Work has been busy. Photography has been busy. Music has been busy. Fall is here and soon it will be time to start holiday baking!!!! Where did this year go? Anyway, hope you are doing well. I will soon be trying the peach cobbler recipe that pastry chef David Benton gave me soon. Stay tuned.

Oh yeah, I got new eyeglasses. I was way overdue. The frames are made by ProDesign Denmark. I really like their frames.
