PSA for your Sexy Self!

Hi ya’ll! It’s Christmas Eve! I’m spending my much-needed family time in the deep south. Tejas!  Growing up in such a rich (literally) Hispanic-centered foodie capital has had its thumbs ups and downs. For example, it took going to college (and living alone!) to realize the meaning of portion control. In a family of 6, with 4 men, making calabaza con pollo for anything less than 10 people was considered…

No Food Shame

Over the weekend, we went on phaaabulous (and quite slippery) adventures while wandering about on the ice. You guessed it, plenty of coffee trips! We heart any reason to be dorky together. It was bundles of fun and I was delusional enough to think my week would continue on as fan-flippin-tastic. Granted, my week was not horrendous – it has been quite challenging. I almost cried yesterday. Naturally, I wanted…

Icepocalypse…? Not So much.

The icemageddon hit Dallas on Thursday night. Sufficed to say, we had a four day weekend. Well…I did. The beau had to work Monday because the roads were better. Our school district (and every other one within a 30 mile radius) opted to stay toasty and at home on Monday. Brilliant! I should have graded papers. Meh.Maybe I should have worked on my final exam for next week…erm, no. What…

Foodie Christmas – Knock the Pants Off Your Chef!

As my first official year in the “big girl” world, I can finally stop drooling over anything that suits my kitchen fancy. Sadly, there is a huge difference between being “able to buy” something and being able to “afford” it. Between student loans, bills and my car payment…it’s difficult to splurge on kitcheny goodies. Thankfully, I know plenty of wonderful peeps who lurve me bundles and are looking to get…

Rave Review of a Dallas Fave

Rave Review of a Dallas Fave

I absolutely luurve The Porch! This fitchick loves all things pancake, eggy and homestyle. Thankfully, I found a restaurant to meet these needs, and they do so with a pure love of food!
The Porch offers some amazing, scrumptious, chop-licking, knock-yer-socks-off dishes that will instantly bring a smile to your taste buds. They put a new twist on traditional dishes from around the world. The menu is bold and delicious. Their “Big Board” offers weekly specials that you wish they’d add to their permanent menu. You’re guaranteed to love any dish they smack down in front of you and it’d be a challenge not to gobble up every ounce of that blissful flavor.
Enjoy!

Holiday Brunching

I got to ring in my favorite month with none other than my Mama Bear! We’ve had a long-standing Sunday Brunch date for the past few years just to catch up on weekly adventures and so I could vent about whatever wickedness my professors were throwing my way. -.o We do our best to keep the date, but sometimes things get in the way. This holiday season, I am thankful…

Pasta, My Pasta!

Did someone say carbs? I have a serious, deep-down, get-in-mah-bellie, love-affair with pasta. Blame it on my Italian roots, or the fact that most Hispanics love Olive Garden. Seriously, it was a childhood staple. When I got to college however, the OG was a luxury I couldn’t afford, so I learned how to make my own dishes inspired by Tuscany via FoodNetwork and The Travel Channel. Those late night study…

Falling Out of Fit

I’m a foodie. If you’re reading this, you’re a foodie. I’ve found that the main problem with being a foodie is constantly battling your jeans, or worse…your bras! Honestly, I gain weight in odd places. See: The Cooch PoochBut truthfully…I loathe battling the bulge. It’s exhausting. I think I’m getting ahead and under control – then, seemingly out of nowhere – the pounds I’ve lost come creeping back. Is anyone…
