Well Dined

About Me


"One cannot think well, love well, sleep well unless one has dined well."
- Virginia Wolfe

Hello there, and thank you for stopping by my blog!

I am happy and proud to be a stay-at-home wife with a wonderful husband who supports me.  We are both foodies and we love to eat out when we can.  This blog started when my husband, Jasper, suggested that I start writing down my thoughts on the places at which we ate.  So I started posting restaurant reviews.  Since those early posts, I have started adding photos of the food so that people really know what they would be getting.  I take my restaurant photos with my iPhone camera, usually.

In addition to being a restaurant foodie, I am also an avid homecook.  After a few months of blogging and working at Williams Sonoma gathering experience as a demonstrator, I decided to start posting recipes in addition to the reviews.  Now that we are eating out less for financial and health reasons, the recipe posts have become the main body of my blog.  I try to keep my food seasonal and reasonably healthy, and I am always trying to improve my photography and writing skills.

So hopefully you will enjoy what you find here and know that I am always improving.

Buon Appetito!

  4. Sarah,

    Thank you for taking the time to write a review of Maruya. It’s very gracious of you. The sushi served at Maruya is Edomae, which also means Tokyo-style sushi. It sounds like your family enjoyed San Francisco. Ray@Maruya.

    • Thank you so much for stopping by my blog, Ray! We did have a great time in San Francisco. My husband and I really love sushi, so it was great to share that experience with our family and to teach them some of the things that we have learned over the years – use your hands, don’t add soy sauce, real wasabi is totally different from what you often see, eat fish in order from delicate to fatty. We really loved your restaurant and will definitely return the next time we are in town.
