Vindaloo. VindaWHO?


So yesterday Aaron was one of the lucky employees in the US to have Martin Luther King Day off. As I left the house, tears filled my eyes watching as he restfully crept out of bed with an entire empty day ahead of him. “Life isn’t fair,” I sobbed. He told me to get over […]

Chicken Dorito: 2.0


If any of you happened to grow up with me, be my friend, be my sister, give birth to me, date me, or marry me (hi Aaron!) chances are you’ve eaten chicken dorito with me. It was a household staple in my mom’s kitchen and not a single soul was ever left hungry or unsatisfied. […]

Luck Be My Dinner Tonight


Is it too late to eat black-eyed peas? Have I missed the boat on good fortune for the year? Is it over and done with? Should I throw in the towel? Hold up a white flag of surrender? Stop asking questions? You see, I bought some black-eyed peas for the new year, but we, uh, […]

Not That Kind Of Mojo, Baby


What is a mojo sauce you ask? Well, I can tell you what it’s not. It doesn’t involve a dose of Austin Power’s charm or a spoon full of self-esteem or even a cup of charisma, although I’m wondering as I type this out if I’m on to something. PATENT PENDING! I said it first. […]

Chicken WANGS!


We’re having leftover chili tonight, so I thought I’d post something from this summer for fun! The original post date – August 24th. *********** Yesterday a handful of great friends and I got together to get some early b-day celebrating going on.

December Comfort


With weather like this I have 3 words for you: Shredded Chicken Chili. I mean, is there really anything more to say? You know me, of course there is!  A blazing fire, a bottle of red wine, warm blankets, wool socks, a good movie, a hot shower, a snuggly puppy, an abundance of questions for […]
