COFFEE BANANA SMOOTHIE
2 small bananas, peeled, cut up, and frozen
1-1/2 cups skim milk
1 8-ounce container low-fat coffee yogurt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Dash ground nutmeg
Banana slices (optional)
Fresh mint (optional)
In a blender container combine frozen bananas, milk, yogurt, cinnamon, and
nutmeg. Cover and blend till smooth. To serve, pour into glasses. If desired, garnish
with fresh banana slices and mint.

MOCHA JAVA
1 cup strong coffee
2 tablespoons semisweet chocolate pieces
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 cup half-and-half or light cream
In a small saucepan combine coffee, chocolate pieces, and sugar. Cook and stir over
medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes or till chocolate is melted and sugar is dissolved.
In another small saucepan heat half-and-half or light cream till steaming, stirring
occasionally. Pour coffee mixture into a mug. Add warm half-and-half. If desired, stir
in additional sugar to taste.

FRAPPUCCINO
1 1/4 cups sugar
5 tsp. Dry pectin
13 3/4 cups 2% milk – or Lactaid 100, 38% less fat (I use this since it has a longer shelf life, even though it costs a little more)
10 Tbsp. Maxwell House Italian Expresso Roast Coffee
5 1/2-3/4 cups water
Flavors –
1 tsp. Unsweetenend cocoa or Quick drink mix,
1 Tbsp. Of liquid coffee flavorings (sold in grocery store by coffee) vanilla, hazlenut, almond, almond roca, raspberry, irish creme, etc., desired amount of extracts, 1 Tbsp. Liquid baking flavorings (i.e. Cinnamon, praline, etc.)
1. Brew the 10 Tbsp. Of coffee with the 5 1/2-3/4 cups cold water.
2. Get blender out and ready.
3. For each batch of 3 bottles…While coffee is still hot…measure out 2 3/4 cups milk, set aside…in blender, place 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tsp. Pectin, any of the above flavorings (or make up your own)-for just plain coffee flavor, do not add any flavors, 1/2 cup of hot coffee and mix a few seconds at a low speed (too high and you get too much froth) to give sugar a chance to dissolve. While running pour in steadily the cold milk. Turn off after only a second or two of being mixed.

William asks…

Interesting spots to visit in San Francisco?

I am going to a conference and have the whole day. I know about the wharf and all the places that go along with that. What I am looking for are places that people really familiar with SF might know about, and I am not privvy. Can you help?

adminmok answers:

It would be helpful to know where you live because that might tell me what would be unusual for you to see. No matter when you come, bring a sweater and/or a jacket. Don’t forget the famous quote attributed to Mark Twain: “The coldest winter I ever experienced was one summer in San Francisco.”

I’m a native San Franciscan. The previous answers were excellant and, more could be said about them. I am only going to briefly discuss places that have not yet been mentioned. `

A very interesting and easy walk would be Grant Street in the downtown area. Start at Geary, heading north. You are walking through an upscale area of fashion and other stores. After three blocks, you will be in Chinatown. San Francisco is reputed to have the largest Chinese population outside of Asia. After eight blocks, you will exit Chinatown. You are now in North Beach, which historically was the Italian District. It remains the home of numerous excellent Itlaian restaurants, delis, and shops. Now cross Broadway and then Columbus streets and continue up Grant for three blocks. Turn left on Union. In two blocks you are back to Columbus and more restaurants and shops.

I would also recomend a Bay cruise and/or a boat trip to Tiburon. Tiburon is often called the “Portofino of the U.S”. It is a walking area with some very good restaurants, bars, coffee houses, shops and art galleries.

Another spot for a short tour would be AT&T Park (originally – Pacific Bell Park). It is the home of the San Francisco Giants baseball team. It is the best of all the modern parks with its cozy atmosphere, unusual nooks and crannies, and amazing Bay views. They have guided tours.

As you can see, you can be here for two weeks and barely scratch the surface of the amazing sights and sounds of San Francisco and the surrounding area. I haven’t even mentioned the the world class wineries of nearby (less than an hour drive) Napa and Sonoma Counties. Nor have I mentioned seeing the campus of Stanford in Palo Alto or Cal in Berkeley. Don’t forget to take a Cable Car ride; A N D — ‘IF YOU’RE COMING TO SAN FRANCISCO, BE SURE TO WEAR A FLOWER IN YOUR HAIR”.
