Best Damn Cheesesteaks

      I rarely get to post recipes anymore. This cheesesteak post was a long time coming, too. I made these for the Beau and his besties for boys night a while back. They gave rave reviews and demanded I make them again soon. These Philly cheesesteaks are so easy to MAKE! They’ll taste like they took forever, but you’ll have them on the table in under 45 minutes.  Truly,…

Things to Avoid Eating in Law School

You should probably avoid pretty much anything I stress bake. That’s right, I stress bake. Here’s a quick little reminder for you guys who are not aware of my sordid love affair with decadent chocolate cake and anything bathed in a creme. I mean, come ON! How are you not salivating?  You see, I have a real love and passion for food. I wouldn’t say I’m as adventurous as Andrew Zimmern, but I do…

Pinterest in the Kitchen

Last week I decided to delve into the sumptuous world of white wine creme sauces and angel hair pasta. I’d seen a pin several weeks earlier and jumped at the idea of making diver scallops. Yum, right? It was finals week on campus, meaning my teacher-self was off at 4pm, instead of 7:30pm. Oh, what glorious times they were! I used my short burst of freedom to mosey into Central…

Chiles Rellenos: Burning Down the House

Chile – you may know it as a country or the little devil peppers that intimidate tomatoes in a mean salsa. Last week, the beau happened across a coworker eating Chiles Rellenos, stuffed peppers, and decided I must make them for him. Talk about hellacious! I’d never made chiles rellenos, mostly because once you fry a pepper, the wonderful crunchiness gets blown away. The chewy, damn near rubberized mess, kind…

Southwest Tacos & Salty Apologies

I know! I’ve been away for a few weeks. I’m so very sorry, my fellow foodies! Life got super hectic! Finals for my students, weekend trips, planning for conferences, planning for graduate school, quality time with my broskis. No worries, though – I’m BACK! I’ve got so much to fill you in on: New restaurants, new recipes, and an almost-bug-eyed worthy moment when I tell you about my first Vegan…

My O-Face

C’mon ya’ll – let’s talk about the “O-Face.” I’m talking about the little mouth “o” I get when finishing the last few feet on a five-mile run; the crumbles of a decadent three-layer chocolate cake on my lips; biting into cold watermelon slices [dusted with salt] on a hot summer day. My “O” balances on the “ooh” and “yum.” Shouldn’t everyone’s? When I make food, be it sweet or savory…

Things I’ll Miss About Winter + Apple Pie!

In good ‘ol Tejas, we experience the oddest strangest damn near psychotic weather. One day, there are tornadoes and flash floods, the next – it’s sunny and 85. Today was one of those days – you know, the type that makes you want to go for a 5 mile jog, then come home and sip sweet tea on your massive wrap-around porch? [Come on…I know I’m not the only one…
