Over the weekend I met a girlfriend at her pool in an attempt to bring my body temperature down to a more tolerable degree. After a quick dip in the blue tub of serenity, we hopped out, set up camp on 2 lounge chairs and started to catch up. The only problem was that I […]

Curtis Stone Hates Me.

Earlier this spring I became quickly obsessed with an old TLC show, “Take Home Chef.” We don’t have cable, so once I discovered the show in my Netflix streaming, I clicked play, and we fell in love. It had NOTHING to do with the cute host from Australia, Curtis Stone. Absolutely nothing. His tagline at […]

Smoked Chorizo and White Bean Soup

With the spring temperatures taking a mini-vacation and steady rain showers passing through the metro, (that’s what they call it on the local news) I found myself digging out my warmest yoga pants, my newest novel and a cozy spot on the couch with my sweet pup. Well, she was only sweet after I freaked […]

Thai Pork Salad with Cellophane Noodles

It’s Oscar night! The red carpet is littered with the rich and famous, dressed to the nine in the finest gowns and tuxes. I look pretty good, too. I’m lounged on my red sofa, wearing some designer (read: tattered) yoga pants from 1997, and my hair is in a most elegant (read: ratty) low bun […]

Per the request of an old friend from high school, (hi Karen!) I will share with you one of my most epic kitchen fails. Please don’t delete my blog from your RSS after this post. Are you impressed that I know what RSS is? It was probably two or three Thanksgivings ago when our besties […]

I Love Tacos. Too Much.

I really, really love tacos. I could eat them at any time, in any form. My friends laugh at me because when it comes to grabbing a bite, I always say, “We could get a taco!” When it’s time to meal plan, don’t put it past me to have some sort of taco included in […]

Brats In December. Why Not?

  I realize it’s December and we’re supposed to be eating casseroles and holiday cookies and drinking eggnog. I know. And I try. But this summer Aaron surprised me with dinner one evening and I’ve not been able to get the meal out of my mind. I’ve asked him a bazillion times since then to […]

Tex-Mex Pork, Y’all

This weekend was fantastic. From getting massages, to Aaron making the best pizza known to man, to attending a fabulous party yesterday with great friends, I’m satisfied. Oh and I got 2 new cooking magazines in the mail. That sealed the deal for what I call an excellent weekend. Now it’s time to press the […]

Fakesgiving! (Yes, That’s What I Said)

Remember our friends with the farm who (whom, who, whom, whatever) we visited back in the summer? Well, today we’re headed their away once again for a festive “Fakesgiving” celebration. (Sunny, you will be missed. Talked about of course, but missed.) This is our first time to attend this annual soire, so I think wearing […]
