Gourmet Chili Dogs

I’m pretty sure this recipe is the biggest oxymoron ever. And quite possibly the most freaky delicious oxymoron that’s going to knock your face into next Tuesday. Last week on the Facebooks and Twitters I asked you if I should make these here chili dogs. And then my accounts exploded due to little red notifications […]

Dinosaur Kale, Tomato and White Bean Soup

I know. I’ve been on quite the kale kick lately. Oh! Let’s start a band. The Kale Kicks. I’ll play bass. Have you ever seen this kind of kale before? Dinosaur kale? It’s flatter and more rich in color compared to the limey-er green curly kale I showed you on Friday. And it has little […]

Pantry Chicken and Beans

pantry6

Okay, so I just finished reading this book. It’s fiction, but one of the main characters is a chef, so any time she references food, the recipe is supplied at the end of each chapter. Pretty pimp, eh? The book itself is gosh darned good, if you’re into giggling like a school girl, weeping like […]

Classic Beef and Bean Chili

Can I ask you a question? What does it mean when someone “winterizes” something? Is it just checking to make sure the chimney sweep doesn’t have eagles or hobos stuck in it again? Or is it a quick glance at the windows and doors for any slits where evil ice ghosts might slip through at […]

I think it can happen to anyone. I wouldn’t call it a BAD thing. I just think it’s common and we shouldn’t read too much into it. Or judge. To my face. I bought a bag of dried mixed beans soup thingy from Trader Joe’s. Uh huh, the one with the instructions printed on the […]

Easy Peasy Summer Minestrone

soup

I love making soup in the summertime because it means I don’t have to do much. Aside from a little chippity-chop-chop of a few vegetables, the pot does all the work! This really works to my advantage, you see. This gives me more time to focus on which Ross and Rachel milestone we’re crossing. It […]

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 […]

Spicy Beef and Bean Burritos

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 […]

Not That Kind Of Mojo, Baby

tumblr_ld37b31Kk31qdz03r

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. […]
