Japanese-style Chicken Meatballs, Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza

Part of this popular pizza chain’s new menu offerings, these Asian-influenced bite-size morsels are great appetizers. Ground chicken is glazed in a slightly sweet, almost teriyaki-like sauce and sprinkled with sesame seeds. A tart and refreshing cucumber salad alongside offers some needed contrast.

Design Your Own S’More Kits, Ethel M

By Grace Bascos

Everyone’s favorite DIY dessert is all grown up, thanks to local chocolatier Ethel M partnering with Santa Barbara, Calif.-based Burst confectioner, which makes, of course, gourmet marshmallows and graham crackers. Each element is sold separately, but what’s the point of marshmallows, graham crackers or chocolate alone? (OK, we’ll give chocolate a pass). Marshmallow flavors include vanilla, coffee, caramel and raspberry swirl, while chocolates come in white, milk and dark varieties. Find your nearest fire source and gobble up the nostalgia.
