Pozole and faux-pozole

I’ve been making a modified pork pozole (posole) recipe for a couple years now, inspired in part by our favorite local Mexican restaurant, Muy Bueno (don’t let the name fool you, they’re terrific!).  There’s a few major varieties based on the base–white, red, and green–but I prefer a green, tomatillo and chili base. I’ve submitted […]

Red and White Something -Close-to-What-May-Be-Considered Sangria

These are the “sangrias” I made this weekend, as best as I can remember! I’ll update this post if I think of anything I forgot. I think the best part was letting it sit overnight in the fridge, and the bitter Granny Smith apples. I made 1 for all my white wine ladies and 1 […]

Sesame Jalapeño Mayo Because I Ate All of the Other Sauce Already

So, for breakfast and lunch today, I finished up all the chicken strips and Chili Lime Peanut Dipping Sauce that I made for dinner last night (it was that good, y’all). Blake was mad because he wanted some more. So, I made blackened chicken strips on the grill tonight (marinated in some Peychaud’s and Angostura […]

Food Phobias: An Esculent Trip Through the Trimesters (Plus a Recipe: Pregnant Lady Chicken Biscuits)

Posted on Oct 5, 2014 in Blog, food porn, life, offspring | 4 Comments

The emotional/mental pregnancy trip has manifested itself in me in interesting ways. I wouldn’t say I’ve been “nesting” (no more than normal, anyway) or “ooing” and “aahhing” over “cute” baby things. My trip with food has been a bit of a roller coaster, though. I started off first trimester feeling ill, mostly induced by dehydration […]

Presto Pesto on the Cheap

Posted on Aug 18, 2014 in Blog, food porn | No Comments

I’ve been loving pesto lately! Fresh basil is one of those really expensive items at the grocery store. Now that we have a porch for the first time in a long time, we picked up 2 basil plants near the end of the season for cheap, and they’ve been growing like wild ever since! This […]

Plantain Tortillas and Some Lovely Topping Options

Plantain tortillas: slightly sweet, wonderfully soft yet stable texture, and incredibly easy to make. Blake whipped these up quickly, and we can’t wait to try them out again with other toppings! They work perfectly as a soft taco shell, but I’m sure we could find many other uses for this mixture, as well. It’s very […]

3 Bean Vegetarian “Burgers”

It’s Blake’s ultimate plan to go completely vegan at some point in the future. Food politics aside–although we both see reason in a variety of aspects of why to not eat animal products in terms of cruelty, sustainability, and so on–it is important for him to watch his animal fat intake due to a history […]

“Fail Harder,” and Other Thoughts From My Big, Pretentious Sketchbook

So, have any of  you Mad Men fans out there seen the documentary Art & Copy? I found it at our local library a couple of days ago and really enjoyed watching it. They interview a variety of ad agency creatives about the business and their career, honing in occasionally on  big campaigns such as […]
