  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 […]

A couple of weeks ago Aaron came home from a business trip, buzzed with excitement. The trip was cool for him on multiple levels: he got to hang out with a famous NBA player, sit courtside at an NBA game and most importantly, he got to taste the food prepared by the basketball player’s personal […]

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 […]

A Wok Down Memory Lane

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 […]

We made it home! I would have posted this dinner last night except for the fact that my brain fell into a post-Thanksgiving coma and didn’t come out until…well, I’m not sure I’m even out of it yet. While I was busy unpacking from our trip and getting settled, Aaron had an unexpected craving to […]
