Veggie Switch-Up

We all tire of veggies being eaten in the same form or fashion. Salads here and there, mixed veggies, sauteed carrots or the stand-alone smashed potatoes – we are all guilty of falling into a same-old-same-vegetable rut. My new favorite vegetable is the spear-headed, and totally regal-looking, Asparagus. Sear a few stalks in a pat of butter, sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic…Voila! You’ve got some bonafide crunch in your…

Oorah, Boys! – A Marine Sister’s Challenge

Two of my broskis have decided to dedicate themselves to the Armed Forces. One of them is already a Marine, while the other left for bootcamp today. It’s surreal. When you’re younger, watching them fall through ceilings (family story that nearly ruined a Christmas due to contractor bills), break bones, flirt (and fail) with girls, or even learn to make Ramen and consider it “cooking” – all these moments make…

Twenty-Something Wisdom

I searched the inter-webs for other inspirational lists, but didn’t connect with a lot out there. I guess no other nerdy teachers with a passion for science, chocolate and over sharing juicy life tidbits while getting body waxes felt the need to give me any sherpa-like guidance through my first quarter century. No limp sushi-roll issue there. Instead, I’ll share my own limitless wisdom with you. Here are the things…

Fusion Yum at Kampong

Kampong, or kampung, is Indonesian and Malaysian for “village.” This modern spin on quaint, traditional dishes is just the ticket for your taste buds. A definite smiley-faced win for all! You’ll sit down, get tended to immediately – possibly by the owner herself! She was wonderful, sweet, and had the best recommendations from the menu. She even made me something off menu! You’ll find Kampong in a mid-sized strip mall…

Velvet Taco Adventures

Sometimes life kicks you in the butt, stomps on your heart, punches your face and leaves you in a crumpled pile – alone and broken, expecting you to pick yourself up and get ready to have it all happen to you again tomorrow. For those days, I recommend cake. Not too much of it, but a slice here and there never did anyone a darn bit of wrong. In fact,…

Jin’s – A Korean Fave…in PLANO!

I keep seeing pinspirational messages. Subliminal hints from my subconscious to write more, run more, laugh more, cook more. It’s almost as if someone is purposefully making me run across these peppy suggestions. Then this came along… It’s genius, don’t you agree? (not to mention, super cute & nerdy! – Find it at domandhyo.com) As it so happens, one of the beau’s besties (broskis, if you will) invited us to…

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…

Looking Good Nude

I always liked the phrase, “in the buff” but I’ve come to the realization that I rather prefer the beau “buff” instead of myself. I don’t see myself being a buff woman. I do, however, want to be a strong woman. I’ve got the strong mind, strong spirit down – but I really need to work on the strong abs and impressive biceps. [You know, if I ever need to…
