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 …

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 …

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 …

Tortilla Soup

Typically when I go to a Mexican restaurant I order the same thing. EVERY SINGLE TIME…Bean burrito, cheese enchilada, and rice & beans, and of course white queso. John gets super annoyed. Oh well! But at the house I don’t think I have ever cooked this dish once. Back in Birmingham my friend Ashley and I would have our …

Home Sweet Home

Last month I remade one of my favorite soups, Spicy Coconut Soup from Surin in Birmingham. So when John and I went back this weekend of course my normal routine of Surin, Ocarrs, and Olexas continued on. But this was possibly one of the best trips home since we have moved.

Inspiration

One of my close friends asked me one day how I come up with my recipes. Well, the process is a combination of things. My DVR is 70% full with cooking shows that I watch on a regular basis, my own cookbooks, I have been handed down a few recipes, and over the years have slowly …

Louisville

One of the great things about living in Indianapolis is the location, now I am not talking about the luxury of living downtown but how many cities are within driving distance. You have Chicago that is 3 hours away, Cincinnati that is 2 hours away, and Louisville which is a little over 2 hours. A …
