Friday Feedings

Aren’t I cute? Ya when I say that he does this cute little head tilt! He also does this after he pinches me and gets in trouble…not looking forward to the terrible two’s. And please excuse the mess – I feel like I live in constant chaos with this one.

Friday Feedings

Can’t believe in 5 more months Friday feedings – well every 2 hour feedings will begin for our other munchkin!! JG got his first haircut this week. And I found out that apparently in the South it’s a superstition not to cut your child’s hair before their first birthday. But if your son is about to have a mullet – it’s time! I am not that superstitious. And we won’t even mention the haircut his daddy tried to give him before Continue Reading…

Surin’s Coconut Soup

I love remaking some of my favorite dishes from restaurants. This one comes from my favorite restaurant in Birmingham – yes you guessed it, Surin. For the 10 years I have been going to this restaurant my order never changes (well except for the 9 months of pregnancy I could not have sushi). I get a volcano roll which is spicy tuna and cucumber on the inside and tuna, avocado, eel sauce on the outside with the best spicy aioli ever Continue Reading…

El Barrio

A few months back when I was in Birmingham for one night I met my two friends at El Barrio. El Barrio serves multi-regional Mexican cuisine and some great drinks. While looking at their menu the first thing that drew me in was the chile relleno. I had to laugh because when I was little all I would eat at a Mexican restaurant was chile rellenos. I definitely do not remember them being this pretty. But El Herradero was your Continue Reading…

Sesame Soba Noodles

My menu for the week is determined by who I cook for. If it is just John and me then the sky is the limit. I have cooked a lot of my specialties for Supper Club on Wednesday nights, but I hadn’t cooked any Asian dishes until this week. On the menu was PF Changs Mongolian Beef, Fried Rice with Yum Yum Sauce, my Spicy Coconut Soup, and my Sesame Soba Noodles. And we all know I like cooking Asian food mainly because I always have all Continue Reading…

100th Post

I can’t believe that this is my 100th post. Thank you to everyone who has been following me. I definitely have come far from the beginning from life as a newlywed & my recipe of the month to multiple recipes throughout the week and few tidbits here in there about our home life. My goal lately has been to work on my food photography, so one of these days I will bite the bullet and get a super nice camera! Until Continue Reading…

Creamy Cajun Pasta Jambalaya

Remember when you first started dating your significant other? One of the things you always worry about (or at least I did) was getting along with their friends. Well I am know I am biased but John’s friends and their lovely ladies are some of the best people in my life! One of the first childhood friends I met of John’s was Michael and his girlfriend at the time (now his wifey) Samantha. Let’s just say Sam and I instantly became quite close, Continue Reading…
