I’m feeling good. My house is clean. Our trees are trimmed. My hair is brushed. There’s a 60% chance of rain tonight. This calls for champagne! For the rain chances you guys, not my brushed hair. Well, actually…..never mind. Anyway, Matthew Collins came over today for round deux of the Great Food Shooting Campaign Celebration […]

I know this might sound completely insane, due to these incredulous temperatures we’re experiencing, but for some reason warm, cheesy, baked, gooey chicken and spinach enchiladas called to me today, begging on hands and knees to be eaten for dinner tonight. Oh, but see, it’s okay! You don’t have to admit me into a psych […]

My lawn is fertilized and seeded. Birds are making a nest above my outdoor patio speaker. Springs showers make their way in and out of the area. My dog has only killed 2 rabbits so far this season. Let’s just go ahead and call this “success.” Southwest-Style Nachos: Oh and Seth, you’re right. This might […]

I’m pretty brain-dead right now. But I do have a few thoughts to throw out into the interwebs. 1) I got my teeth cleaned today and I feel like Giada De Laurentiis. 2) We may have ice on the way. AKA – I am never leaving my bedroom. 3) I have a cardboard cut. Did […]

I know. I know. I cooked shrimp like 5 minutes ago. But when the man with the dangling nose requests shrimp with green beans and rice, I obey. I jump up and down like a 5-year old girl about to pee her pants because she loves shrimp so much, then I get to cooking. I […]

  It’s always so nice to come home after a long day to find my husband busily stirring around the kitchen, various spice jars open, the rice cooker buzzing away and a simmering pot on the stove releasing scents of comfort. Of home. Of me not having to lift a finger. Tears I tell you. […]

This is a post from a long time ago from my Facebook food album.  Aaron’s cooking tonight, so I’ll have that story for you and more, tomorrow.  Whoa, that was very news reporter-y of me. I’m not sure if it’s from the harvested scotch bonnet pepper that we threw into this dish last second, or […]

Status Supper

Don’t you feel that naming a dish “shrimp po’ boy” is somewhat of an oxymoron?  Because, hi, shrimp is not that cheap. Maybe they mean that after you purchase the shrimp you become a po’ boy. Perhaps it should just be called, “middle class marine meal.”  Or maybe, “rich man’s torpedo.”  Maybe I should shut […]
