Host, Food Network and Cooking Channel

In the new millennium, becoming the next Food Network star is the dream of many and the reality for few. But Aida Mollenkamp, who was discovered in 2007 while working as an editor at foodie website CHOW in SF, might just be on her way. With both brains and beauty, she’s clearly got the one-two punch. That’s not to say there wasn’t a learning curve. “I completely didn’t know what to do the first time something caught on fire,” says Mollenkamp. “I thought I should just keep talking.”

Curried Potato Croquettes
On days when I am feeling lazy, or when I return from a three-day weekend and the fridge is bare, I make a beeline for the Nijiya Market and buy a couple packages of their curried potato croquettes. Recrisped in the oven, with a side dish of whatever is collecting dust in the crisper drawer, they are the perfect easy dinner. -Jessica Battilana

Gone Fishin'

Well, not really. We're scattered across the country in Seattle (Jen), Dwight, Illinois (Matt) and New York (Laura). We might be fishing though, who knows.

But...Happy Labor Day! Normal posting will resume tomorrow.

1. Martha Davis Boots

I had a friend once who’s email handle was “Die with Boots On.” I get it. The boot being the one and only practical shoe of this finicky hot/cold city, I spend a lot of time obsessing over them. Local shoe designer Martha Davis has a pair for fall that I currently covet. I love the heel—not too stripper high, not too granny low— the back lace up and the chestnut color (although it also comes in smoke, gold and black nappa). Not cheap, but you have to pay to be a fashion locavore. $465 at Metier (my other favorite store), metiersf.com. - Sara Deseran

Our Nightlife Guide launch party at Infusion Lounge last Thursday, August 19th -- celebrating the newest edition of our popular pocket guide to San Francisco clubs, bars, lounges and events --  was a smashing success!

Guests danced to retro beats by award-winning DJ Ts (LIFE/STYLE), enjoyed delicious bites, and sipped ice cold drinks including specials from DonQ rum and Pilsner Urquell.
