Sweet Summer Corn Risotto

May 24, 2011

Sweeeeeeeeeeeeet summer corn (bada badaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa), good times never seem so good (so good, so good)! Oops, wrong words.  My bad.   So now that I’ve gotten “Sweet Caroline” stuck in your head for the remainder of the day (you’re welcome), let’s talk about corn.  Sweet summer corn.  Just doesn’t get any better than that!  Back […]

5-Ingredient Pacific Rim Wontons

May 23, 2011

The more I write this blog the more I see that I have the most irrational fears. This week’s unveiled fear is wonton wrappers.  Terrified of them.  Scared to death.  Oh, and lazy.  Don’t forget to throw that little gem in there.   I suppose more than anything it’s the fear of failure that gets […]

Peanut Butter White Chocolate Stuffed French Toast

May 22, 2011

It’s simple really. I’ve now discovered that, thanks to my tall handsome husband, I am addicted to French toast.  It’s true.  And as surely as Bunker is drooling over the peanut butter jar in the picture above I am now dreaming up roughly 2,000 different French toast stuffings in my brain as I write.  This […]

Confessions of a Life Blogger Part III

May 21, 2011

I only like marshmallows when they’re roasted, which I did almost every night over our electric stove in college. Almond butter is only good with baby carrots. [source] I love Selena.  Always have, always will. Once upon a time I just knew that I was going to be a gymnast.  And I just knew that […]

Homemade Peanut Butter Hot Fudge

May 20, 2011

Yesterday it rained.  So did the 4 days prior.  I’m cold.  Clearly craving ice cream makes perfect sense. I was unleashing my neverending-winter aggression on the contents of my freezer, throwing things left and right, and hunting – seriously hunting – for the container of ice cream that I knew just had to be in […]

From the iPhone

May 19, 2011

Once upon a time I entered into a candy shop.  I went so that I could use their restroom, but stopped in my tracks when I saw this and had to take a picture on my iPhone: I think the time has come for me to start buying stock in bacon.   The end.

Toasted Marshmallow Cinnamon Rolls

May 19, 2011

One thing is for certain:  I am in the middle of a marshmallow crisis. I don’t know how I got here even.  I never liked marshmallows; while all of my friends pined and performed tricks for the white fluffy sticky treats I was eyeing the sour cream and onion potato chips.  The sausage balls.  The […]

Famous Nate

May 18, 2011

Last night we had dinner.  We had dinner and I was salivating immensely in between bites.  We had a dinner of po’boys with homemade remoulade.  And y’all, that remoulade made my mouth so happy!  I actually considered drinking it.   I wish I could lay claim to said remoulade, but only Nate knows the magic.  […]

Ancient Grain Salad with Honey Lime Vinaigrette

May 18, 2011

I know I bake some pretty ridiculous things for this blog.  And let’s just say that my waistline has more than paid its dues for said baking. We actually do eat pretty healthfully though.  Sometimes.  Most of the time.  At times.  Occasionally.   Here’s the big not-so-secret:  I actually love vegetables and really only like […]
