Happy Birthday to Me!

So another year has come and passed and I am once again 29 years old(for the 5th time). And once again I made my husband trek to the Melting Pot for my anual birthday dinner there. When I was younger we lived across a family where the dad was somewhat of a gourmet cook(couldn’t bake to save his life but he could cook). One night we were all invited over for dinner. He served fondue. It was my first experience with fondue and I was instantly enamoured with it and have been ever since. Luckily the beloved 70’s trend has found it’s way back and I just hope that it stays around this time.
Traditional Swiss Fondue

California Salad…though I’m not sure what is so Californian about it???

Surf and Turf…lobster, filet minon and portabello mushrooms

Milk Chocolate Fondue with Bailey’s Irish Cream


  1. The Melting Pot is one of my favorite restaurants. It’s a wonderful choice for your birthday dinner. Birthday cake dipped in liquid chocolate is the way to go!

  2. Coincidentally, we had our first Melting Pot expeience on July 3 in Larkspur, CA. Yum. It certainly won’t be our last. Look for a review on my blog soon.

  3. Surprise says:

    Well what do you know, it’s one of my faves. Although Louie is not very happy that you have to pay so much just to cook your own food. But that is coming from a guy who could live on burritos….If I may put in a request…at your Father’s retirement party you made some fabulous Cherry & White Chocolate cookies, can you post those? Anyway, this is great will be checking back soon.
