Did you know it’s a full moon today? Have you fallen down 13 times, worn your bra on the outside of your shirt and kissed your boss? That’s why. You shan’t be blamed. Actually, if we play our cards right, this whole full moon thing could really be on our side. We could play Follow […]

Simple Beef Tacos

The other afternoon, Aaron and I were resting on the couch, excruciatingly horrible movie on TV, my new favorite book in my lap and our minds taking a much needed breather. We had just hosted a little dinner party with our friends the night before, so cooking an elaborate dinner was simply out of the […]

Earlier this summer my parents took a vacation via car, making a round-trip excursion through Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Kansas, then back to their home state of Arkansas. While in New Mexico I constantly bombarded their phones and Facebook pages with frantic, “OMG GET ME CHILES!! NO SERIOUSLY, GET ME SOME CHILES!! DID YOU GET […]

Good Old Fashioned Burgers

Beef Burger

This past Saturday I was sitting at the kitchen table, meal planning, a hobby that makes me so giddy, others who know me might view it borderline inappropriate. Aaron was peacefully sitting on the couch, flipping through his newest “This Old House” magazine. My head was down and my pen scribbled quickly over a page […]

I didn’t plan on cooking meals that involve shredded meat two nights in a row. Really, I didn’t. Maybe it was the innards of my soul cavity reaching out to my subconscious through the vessels and the lining of the euphoric parcel of my heart petals, whispering glorious cravings of the exquisite and delicate nature […]

Tomorrow I leave my man. Good grief, not for good! But for a mere week, so that I can be with my sister as she gives birth to my niece. Or a pipe wrench. The verdict is still out. So as I pack my bag, prepare for the lawng drive, and glare at the snow […]

Beef and Beer Stew – For Yew.

I love day cooking. When you have all afternoon to attempt a project recipe (like yesterday) or to just simmer a pot of soup for hours, there’s something absolutely restorative about it. And get this: I’m fine-tuning my attitude towards Winter, and the frequent snow storms that blow through, (Why did I move away from […]

Meatloaf. No, Not the Band.

  I have a small confession to make. Yesterday I had my first stab at making meatloaf. I’m not sure what took me so long. If it’s the fact that I grudgingly ate it as a child, our year-long hiatus from beef and pork, or the words “meat” and “loaf” back to back. Let’s safely […]

Well hello, Old Man Winter. I see you’ve brought some snow our way. And I hear you’re not done just yet. And that’s fine, but while I have you, would you mind calling Triple A for me in the morning when my lil ole car won’t make it to work? Oh, and would you please […]

A Wok Down Memory Lane

tumblr_lcq74kLO7L1qdz03r

I remember growing up during my teenage years in Hobbs, New Mexico, on a very flat street in the middle of the desert. My dad spent many a night tossing different meats and veggies around the stir-fry wok. He loved and I mean loved to stir-fry for the family. Mom got a break and it […]
