Our favorite morsels from the blogs.

In other cities, Memorial Day weekend means slicing open shrink-wrapped packs of Sheboygan brats, spraying lighter fluid over a pyramid of briquets, and ― well, we've all tasted where that ends up. Here by the Bay, stretching out in the kitchen across a long weekend means something else entirely. To wit:

• Allison from Local Lemons blog-demos the most gorgeous squash blossom pizza, pausing only briefly to ask if we think she's pretentious. Nah.

• Jun Belen of Jun-Blog (and SFoodie) continues his current meme about Filipinos' love of purple sweets with a beautiful blog-treatise on the making of vividly purple ube tartlets.

Bay Area Bites' Michael Procopio takes it primal, with a formula for fresh cherries covered in crushed ice and mint leaves. Procopio's explication: "The mint is crushed and torn and shredded over the ice and cherries so that, as the ice melts, the mint's essential oils gently wash over the fruit, giving the cherries a subtle little extra somthing-something." Sure, we believe you.

Super-tasty weekend, everybody.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
