Slow Cooked Chicken Fajitas

October 20, 2011

I told you guys I was becoming re-obsessed with my crock pot. Not to mention re-obsessed with fajitas, but that’s one obsession that will never leave.  There’s just something about the smoky delicious meat and caramelized veggies + salsa, guac and sour cream that just does it for me.  Not only that but the tortilla?  […]

Super Happy Terrified

October 19, 2011

Don’t you guys just love the look Bunker is giving me here?  He is seriously the biggest mess ever, and I’m totally wrapped around his human-hand-sized paw.  Cute little guy First of all, thank you so much for all of y’alls encouragement.  I tried to downplay the panic attack the other day, but I’ve still […]

Pear, Chocolate and Red Wine Hand Pies

October 19, 2011

Remember a few weeks ago when I waxed poetic about poached pears and chocolate sauce? Yeah, those were good.  Like outstandingly good.  Life-altering globe-changing world-peace-inducing kind of good.   Yes, I said it:  poached pears and chocolate sauce might just be the catalyst we need for world peace.  Take that Miss America!  (OK to be […]

Bacon, Leek and Broccoli Quiche

October 18, 2011

I’ve always loved quiche despite the fact that I still think it’s spelled funny. Story #1:  I hate when things are spelled differently than they should be.  Although I shop there all the time, I really cringe every time I drive up to King Soopers here in Colorado.  In fact when we first came out […]

Shredded Brussells Sprouts with Shallots and Roasted Butternut Squash

October 17, 2011

  If the title weren’t so long I’d make sure to throw the word ‘salad’ in there too.  You know, for the health-conscious. That’s not to say that it’s not healthy at all though.  In fact this may just be one of the healthier things I made this weekend!  But really, who’s counting?   You […]

Mom’s Perfect Cornbread Dressing

October 14, 2011

Does anyone know why stores don’t sell celery by the stalk?  Or better yet, if they do, why I cannot find it anywhere? I think that this situation might be akin to why I don’t love bananas (as in I ate them WAY too much as a kid), but I can’t stand celery.  I used […]

The Best Thanksgiving Turkey Breast

October 13, 2011

I remember our first Thanksgiving together. Well, let’s just set the stage:  we were engaged, not married, we had an apartment we were both paying for, but we weren’t living together.  We both had to work at Starbucks all day Thanksgiving day (actually we chose to so we could get some extra cash for the […]

It’s a…

October 12, 2011

Well before I get too far into this post I have to share my little celebratory mini-carrot cake.  See I had BIG PLANS to do a gender reveal shindig and make a big fat cake with layers of blue or pink frosting.  Yeah.  Then I realized it’s the middle of the week and I’m exhausted […]

Creamy Crockpot Pork Green Chili

October 12, 2011

Sometimes I like to play pretend. I like to pretend that I hate green chiles.  I like to pretend that I don’t care if places out here claim to have the best green chili on the planet.  And most of the time it’s not totally pretending.  I mean, I’m from Texas and even with this […]
