Cooking for my Husband

I know in the midst of football and concert season, now at least, since this post has been in my draft box for several months now….that it’s hard to get into the kitchen and cook and eat a meal with my mate. I miss cooking and having a regular life incredibly. I know soon I... Continue Reading →

RePost: Clean Eating | Coconut Soba Noodle Bowls – BevCooks

I’m so over dieting today. I’m frustrated because we went on a date night over the weekend and despite having one wayyyy off the diet meal, I kept it pretty good and yet, here I am today, and 9 lbs over what I started the weekend at. 9 lbs. What gives?! So here I am.... Continue Reading →

RePost: Spanish Breakfast | Spanish-Style Toast with Tomato (Pan Con Tomate) – Saveur

Seriously. Eating in the Spain. Omalord. and while I’ll be going over every place and thing we ate in a blog soon, I couldn’t believe it when Saveur posted this the other day, it was a gift. As simple and easy and forgettable as this dish sounds, it isn’t. It’s fresh and amazing and just... Continue Reading →

RePost: Kinda like Miller’s Guild | Grilled Rib-Eye Steaks with Parsley, Celery & Blue Cheese – Not without Salt

Despite being a foodie, I think what prompted me to pick this recipe was the wooden board that they are serving the steak on. When the husband and I had his post-half marathon meal at Miller’s Guild in Seattle, we chose to split an 82-day aged ribeye that weighed in at a whopping 29 ounces.... Continue Reading →

RePost: Dinner Soon | chicken caesar burger with parmesan crisps – Climbing Grier Mountain

Seriously, this week has been about cleaning out my veins full of wonderful honeymoon food. You ever notice though, you come back from vacation, you want to eat well, but your stomach pangs mercilessly for the room service, breakfast in bed full of cheese and hollandaise and or the seafood or red meat. and in...

RePost: God Make me This and Calorie Free | chorizo croque monsieur with queso & cotija guacamole – Climbing Grier Mountain

Lately I’ve been dying to throw a brunch. My pinterest page has a brunch board. Do I think that my friends would get up and come our way for a brunch on a Sunday morning? Prolly not. Not because they are mean or that we don’t have friends, but everyone just seems crazy busy with... Continue Reading →

RePost: Where Have We Been?! | Fried Egg Tostada with Sausage, Spinach & Tomatoes–Fresh Tart

In Vegas this past weekend…we hit the Bacchanal Buffet. OMG. Not only does it not feel like the vintage buffets, which are still great, all over town, it’s foodie heaven. You walk into a great seafood bar, only to get consumed by their amazingly over the top breakfast offerings (bloody mary accoutrements get a space... Continue Reading →

RePost: I need an Easter Tradition | Bialy Barszcz (Polish White Borscht)–Saveur

This year marks a pretty cool first for Sir LAA and I. Hosting our first holiday at our house. Easter. Easter’s not a “huge thing” for either of us compared to Thanksgiving and Christmas. I like Easter, every year I love seeing the stores “bloom” in pastel colored décor and restaurants turning out lighter, greener... Continue Reading →

RePost: Picky Eating | Recipe: Chili-Rubbed Ribeye Steak with Maple-Bourbon Butter – The Kitchn

Do you have a picky eater? Sir LAA is. No seafood (although compromising, he will be doing fish this year as a New Year’s Resolution). No spinach, no mushrooms, no raw onions. Only “so much” broccoli. No nuts in desserts, or food really – unless peanut butter. Or peanuts – but only sometimes. No artichokes.... Continue Reading →
