So, I’ve rearranged a few priorities in my life. Oh, no no – listening to Wilson Phillips on repeat is still at the top. As well as honing my breakdancing in a giant eggshell costume craft. I’ve not gone off the deep end or anything, YOU GUYS. I’ve just decided to braise things more often. […]

Chicken Sausage Tacos with Cilantro-Yogurt Sauce

I’m not exactly sure what happened here. It’s not Mexican food. It’s not Greek food. It’s…well….. It all started like this: Me to Aaron, “Hey, do you want some chicken sausage tacos for dinner tomorrow night? We’ve never done that before.” Aaron, “Yeah, but instead of a tortilla, maybe use pita bread?” Me, “I guess…but […]

Now, before you’re all, “omg she made hatch chile sauce from scratch, you guys!” you need to know, it’s from a can. But this can was sent straight from the pearly green gates of hatch chile heaven.
