On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…cookies. Because again, no to birds and yes to cookies! And again, I’m pretty sure Santa would agree. Today’s cookie is one that I’ve been contemplating for a long time. Contemplating, but not doing anything about it because it is a flavor profile I … Continue reading 12 Cookies of Christmas, Day 2
I love cookbooks. I never go into a bookstore without visiting the cooking section—and usually have to talk myself out of buying one or two or ten. As such, over the years I have collected quite a few. Thirty-three to be exact. And by 33, I mean that’s the bare-minimum-absolutely-must-have number. The problem is that—in … Continue reading 33 Cookbooks
BLTs are proof that bacon makes everything better because let me tell you I am not overly fond of lettuce and I hate tomatoes on my sandwiches. They make it all soggy, but that is a rant for another day. However, add BACON and suddenly, I can tolerate both. Mainly, because I know what kind … Continue reading Bacon Makes Everything Better
Every spring my university (West Texas A&M–Go Buffs!) would hold a Ramen Contest. As I can recall (but granted, it’s been a few years), there were probably about 10 or so categories into which you could enter your recipes, such as appetizers, desserts, most creative, healthiest, cheapest, etc. For kids living off the stuff, this … Continue reading Upping Your Ramen Game

As such, I’ve decided that rather than share pictures of me with bad 80s hair and glasses that legitimately covered half my face, I could easily share glasses … Continue reading Thirsty Thursday Mai Tai!
Growing up, Friday night was always pizza night…because who doesn’t love pizza?!? Plus nothing goes with football like pizza (hey, we’re Texans! Also upon further reflection–aka growing older–I’ve found beer to be a better accompaniment to football, but at five years old pizza is probably the better option). Of course, until I moved to New … Continue reading Pizza Night!

I love deviled eggs. I could literally make myself sick eating them. I’m quite certain that at least once [or ten times] in the last 4 decades, I have. I don’t think I’ve met a deviled egg that I haven’t liked. My aunt’s are probably my favorite [I’ll let them duke it out as to … Continue reading The Incredible, Edible [Deviled] Egg!
Yesterday started my birthday week. By that, I don’t mean it’s the week of my birthday, but rather: starting yesterday, I have at least one birthday a day until the end of the month (and yes, I know it’s technically 8 days, but channel your inner Beatles and work with me here people!). The only … Continue reading Birthdays Galore!
