Living With Great Style

Four Favorites: Chambray

Four Favorites: Chambray | Sacramento Street

 

Do you ever find yourself wearing a uniform? It’s been happening to me lately. My new wardrobe staple is chambray shirts – they look good with leggings, dresses, you name it. I find myself rotating through my collection of them, which is quite embarrassingly large. I wanted to share a few of my favorites with you and find out if any of you have a daily uniform you’ve found yourself wearing recently?

On the Menu: Huevos Rancheros

Huevos Rancheros | Sacramento Street

Huevos rancheros is one of my all-time favorite breakfasts. It is on a short list of dishes that I will always order off a menu if I see it. Warm corn tortillas soaked with salsa and black beans all topped with an egg and some cilantro, it might just be my idea of perfection on a plate.


Here is my take on the traditional dish. I added avocado because I can’t seem to ever get enough avocado, as well as some Cojita cheese for a little tanginess. The recipe calls for making your own salsa but you can certainly buy pre-made salsa and skip a step.


Also, I fry my eggs on the stovetop in a non-stick pan then combine the dish before eating and serving. If fried eggs are not your thing, feel free to prepare the eggs your favorite way – regardless of fried, scrambled, poached or sunny side up, these huevos rancheros will be delicious. Enjoy!

Huevos Rancheros | Sacramento Street

 

Ingredients| Sacramento Street


Serves 4


– 4 Roma or plum tomatoes, about 1 lb., diced (setting a couple tablespoons aside for garnish)

– 1 onion, divided and chopped

– chopped fresh cilantro plus additional for garnishing

– 1 Tbsp. chopped canned chipotle chiles in adobo (or more if you like your salsa spicy)

– 1 garlic clove, coarsely chopped

– 4 Tbsp. olive oil

– ½ tsp. salt (or more to taste)

– 1 -15 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed

– 4 large eggs

– 8 corn tortillas, about 5” diameter

– Garnish: Cojita cheese, avocado, jalapeños, lime wedges


Directions | Sacramento Street


1.) In a blender puree tomatoes, half of the diced onion, cilantro, chipotle, garlic, and salt until smooth. Pour salsa mixture into a medium sized non-stick sauté pan and simmer over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until salsa is slightly thickened, about 5 – 7 minutes. Remove salsa from pan and set aside. Carefully wipe out the pan.


2.) In the same sauté pan over medium heat add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add the onions and sauté until translucent, about 2 -3 minutes. Add the beans and cook for another 3 – 4 minutes or until beans are warmed through. Remove beans from pan and set aside. Carefully wipe out the pan.


3.) In the same sauté pan over medium high heat, add remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Once the oil is hot, carefully crack the eggs, one at a time into the pan. (I often crack into a small bowl then slide the egg onto the pan to make sure I don’t break the yolk or miss any eggshells). Cook eggs according to your preference. I like my whites set but my yolks still runny so it only takes about 2 -3 minutes.


4.) Assemble the huevos rancheros by quickly warming the tortillas in the oven or in the microwave. Place 2 tortillas on a plate, top with black beans, salsa and one egg. Garnish with avocado, Cojita cheese, jalapeños, tomatoes, lime wedges and cilantro.

Layer It: Apple Picking

Layer It : Apple Picking Inspiration | Sacramento Street

Images: One, Two, Three, Four, Five (From left to right)


It’s that time of year, where doorsteps are being decorated with pumpkins, days are getting shorter and it’s nearing the end of one of my favorite fall things to do – apple picking. In our house we’re a little more than obsessed with apples. Both of us have an apple a day and this time of year they are better than ever. So we set out and head up north to do a bit of apple picking to make delicious crisps, turnovers, you name it!

Hope all of you had a lovely weekend. We headed down to Carmel to celebrate two amazing friends get married – it was pure magic. Not to mention that we were able to catch up with old friends that we haven’t seen in quite some time. But as we made the drive back home I grew even more excited for the week that lies ahead – projects that are being shot, family that is coming into town and the World Series. Plus, there is a slight fall breeze in the air that has me delighted that fall may have finally arrived.


This week there is a plethora of beautiful posts coming your way – a new recipe that I love, a fall tabletop to inspire you when planning you’re next gathering and a new Blooms in Season post. Be sure to check back regularly because these aren’t to be missed.

Giveaway: $300 Worth of Minted Holiday Cards!

Minted Giveaway | Sacramento Street


The holiday season is right around the corner – I can taste it! Not only am I excited because our little nugget is set to arrive, but the holiday season is my favorite time of year. There is nothing I love more than the chill in the air, the city glowing with holiday cheer, and seeing the Christmas trees in all of the windows. But what I love most is coming home to a mailbox full of holiday cards.


Each year Eric and I take an evening to sit down and select which holiday card will be gracing the mailboxes of our friends and family. This year, we’re getting a head start by ordering them early with Minted. They just unveiled their 2014 collection that has stunning new designs that are all customizable, they have a foil-pressed option that I can’t get enough of and they feature a free recipient addressing service to make sending your cards that much easier. In my eyes, this is amazing because addressing the cards always takes so much time.

Honestly, as I sifted through all of the beautiful options that Minted has to offer I realized that you can’t really go wrong with any of them. Each has a unique quality to it that anyone would love to get in their mailbox.
