Mesero – Dallas

The Beau and I brunched at Mesero on Sunday. We took the pups, which was a riot – because getting to the patio (with a blocked entrance…fire hazards be damned) was challenging. Our original plan was to eat at a pet-friendly restaurant (which is a short list in Dallas proper). Now, I’d eaten at Mesero before and was not super thrilled to go back. However, we were now trapped by cars…

Splurging Is Good for the Soul

The beau’s brother introduced me to SOYLENT 2.0. We ordered 12 bottles of Nectar flavor. It tastes like fruity pebbles milk, or a melted strawberry milk shake. I didn’t think it was all bad, but it certainly is a different taste. The aftertaste is great, which is nice – because meal replacement shakes (in my experience) aren’t always so kind to my tastebuds. Skeptical though I was, I gave this nutrient-rich,…

Meal Prep for the Busy Law Student

Usually, I meal prep on Sunday. However, I was quite disenchanted with the mere thought of cooking then, and the kitchen passion didn’t quite hit me Tuesday, or today either, hence – I continued to procrastinate. [law school daze, right] Put if off until tomorrow…I was happy with this decision. Until I opened the fridge in the morning to pack my lunch and realized – I didn’t have lunch! Well, damn. Joke’s…

Law Student Reviews: Hello Fresh

Balancing a schedule is beyond hectic in law school. I imagine it’s similar to actually practicing law. There are deadlines, meetings, prep sessions, after-hours events – the list continues… What I find particularly challenging is working out and eating well between reading and briefing cases. Since I’ve been sorely lacking in the “workout plan” department, I felt I should pick up the slack on the healthy eating. Because, I can…

FUEGO – The Yummy Kind!

Fuego! Tortilla Grill IH 35 North, San Marcos, TX 78666 (512) 754-8226 {The Best “Pit-Stop” I’ve experienced heading south!} Let’s start with the appetizers, shall we? I’m always terrified of trying guac and queso at restaurants. It’s one of those combos that are either incredibly awful, or amazingly scrumptious. Thankfully, FUEGO provides the latter – yummy, chunky guacamole with piping hot tortilla chips. They’re not too salty, and just the perfect amount of…

She Took Me to the Bahn [Mi] Shop

There’s this specialty restaurant on SMU Blvd, this teensy place where Mel’s been dying to get her snack on.

There was no…

Grub – Winningest Shakes & Burgers

There’s this burger spot in what feels like the most awkward spot to park a restaurant along Greenville avenue. When there are so many places to choose from along Dallas’ much-loved, mostly drunk-upon, street – why choose Grub? Let me shed some light on why you’re eating at the wrong burger place. You see, Grub’s located across the way from Desperado’s, Kosta’s Cafe, Rusty Taco, Start, and the soon to be nighttime Starbucks…

Coffee & Donuts

We recently took a road trip to Austin. On our way down from Dallas, we sadly waved as we passed Baylor around 11pm, much too late to stop at Common Grounds. CG was closed, leaving me heart-broken. Any chance I have to stop on campus is a welcome experience. It’s like coming home; not stopping for a quick-sip was a bummer. [We made the time to stop on our way back…
