Cooking With Amy

Hi! I'm Amy Sherman, a San Francisco–based cookbook author, food writer and recipe developer. I launched the blog, Cooking with Amy, in 2003. Not long after it was chosen one of the top five food blogs by Forbes and also singled out by The Guardian (UK) as a top food blog. It has received over 2 million visits. On the blog I offer original recipes, reviews, commentary, news and culinary travel information. I hope you enjoy visiting as much as I enjoy writing and sharing my discoveries. I am honored that my blog is listed as a “Site we Love” by Saveur, linked to as a favorite by Cooking Light, Epicurious, Good Housekeeping and Redbook among others and was “blog of the day” on the Julie & Julia movie web site. I write for various magazines, including Cheers, where I write about food and beverage pairing. I also write about trends and culinary travel for Epicurious, write restaurant reviews for SF Station (a local city guide) and was a weekly contributor at KQED’s food blog, Bay Area Bites for over five years. I was also contributing editor at Glam and wine and spirits writer at Project Foodie. I am the author of Williams-Sonoma New Flavors for Appetizers and Wine Passport: Portugal (SmartsCo) and wrote the introduction to a recent reprint of the classic Jane Grigson’s Vegetable Book.

Berkeley Blog

Sylvia Paull entered the technology revolution when she accidentally applied for a job with Software Ventures, developers of the first commercial telecom software for the Macintosh called MicroPhone. She was soon elected to the board of BMUG, started hosting parties for Will Hearst III, John C. Dvorak, and Jerry Pournelle at Comdex (a pre-blogger event), and eventually started her own parties, known as Cybersalons (www.berkeleycybersalon.com). An independent high-tech publicist and velvet feminist, she started Gracenet, a group for women in high tech (www.gracenet.net), and various other groups revolving around her desires to eat out, take long walks, and shake things up.

Rebuilding Oaktown

A blog about the beautification and re-redevelopment of Oaktown from the viewpoint of a downtown resident, dark greenie, new urbanist fan and world traveler. I also run a pedicab in central Oakland. It’s called “Back Seat.” Contact: k150 [at] yahoo

The Education Report

The Education Report was born in June 2007. Ever since, people have been using it to dish, vent, debate, and muse about their experiences and impressions of Oakland’s schools. I’m always open to tips — blog ideas, especially. You can reach me most easily at kmurphy@bayareanewsgroup.com, or by calling (510) 208-6424. You can also follow me on Twitter at http://twitter.com/katymurphy.

Defending Measure Y

I'm a Berkeley native but I have been living in Oakland for the past 10 years. This blog is devoted to informing the public and keeping those that are interested up to date on my lawsuit against the City over Measure Y. I am a lawyer and I have been representing myself in this action. I graduated from Boalt Hall School of Law (UC Berkeley) in 1992. In my day job, I represent public entities, including school districts and community college districts. However, the lawsuit I have filed has nothing to do with my job. I hate corrupt, lying and insincere politicians. I love my neighborhood and I believe Oakland has great potential. I also love fighting for things I believe in.

Oaktown Art

An exposé of cool public art & culture in and around Oakland, California.

Alameda, CA Restaurants

The intention of this blog is for people to post their own food experiences or stories of restaurants, cafes or diners in Alameda, CA. One person could potentially eat at every single food establishment in Alameda since the city is still quite small, but I have not come across that special person just yet.

Christine Sculati's blog

In this blog I highlight ideas, news and resources for nonprofit and community innovation. I feature examples of nonprofits, socially-responsible businesses and individuals driven by a vision for positive change in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.
