Jalapeño Popper Eggs

Pop this in your mouth! Just your mouth. Only your mouth. Don’t touch your eyes, nose, open cuts, or netherlands for days after prepping this. I won’t share which combination of mistakes I made with this…. I do not know what on earth happened, but I purchases either the hottest batch of jalapenos or perhaps,…

La Panaderia

Never much for boring hotel grub, I opted to seek out some local flavor, starting with brekky at La Panaderia in San Antonio. I’d read their menu online and had pre-selected an egg white avocado combo that sounded delightful. I didn’t realize I’d have to have the self control to walk past a wall of…

Super Model Project: Eggy Mozzarella Ham Cups

Honestly, this weekend was kind of shitty. One of the saving graces was the C.Tiegan new cookbook, ‘Cravings:  Hungry for More.’ While I’m dying to dive into some red curry or any of her coconut-centric recipes, I opted for some less rice-heavy items that could be prepped on Sunday for the week. First up, her…

Icelandic Berry Batter (Recipe. Non-sexual).

Ya’ll, a double pint of blueberries on sale at Target right now for $3.49. You HAVE to make this. It’s too cheap not to. This round, I made the regular babe for friends and office and a mini gluten-free version that is so experimental, some might ban it from their berry patch. (Icelandic yogurt was…

Funk Food: Waffles!

In between reliving some delicious food and drink from the recent last-minute trip to the UK , I’m attempting to detox from booze (UGH) and eat low carb (UGH UGH). It has been absolutely freezing this week and the only hobby I want to have is pasta and wine. Last night, about every person I know…

Berry Greetings from the Future

If I told you that I knew what you’d be eating two days from now for breakfast, would you believe me? You should, because I’m a psychic. Well, a baking psychic. That’s psychic with an ‘-ic,’ not with an ‘-o.’ Thanks very much. That’s right, two days ago I made my world famous berry good…

Mayhem Breakfast Pizza

The best Sundays in the world are grabbing a coffee and the NY Times, throwing on some jazz, and cooking a savory breakfast while the person who gives you butterflies curls up on the couch to start their day and trade fantasy football players. Brunch should be served with champagne and then you are going…

Savoury Moments

Hurricane Matthew blew a VIP house guest into my world last weekend. And VIP house guests warrant VIP mornings. So, here’s what you’re going to do: Check for the NYT at least three times only to conclude that the category 4 hurricane took it on quite a journey instead of to your coffee table. Make…

Norma’s at The Parker

Norma’s at The Parker, they said. It’s a Parker Meridien, they said. Yea….well… This door is my dream… The bar was made of Quartz, just as the Delano or the Tides…. Ok I feel at home…I can work with this…. I made brunch reservations because I HAD to…. It was like Grandma’s living room. On…

Loaded Waffles for the Win

This weekend was a game changer in the waffle world. I decided to use the extra sheet of puff pastry that was lurking in the freezer from having company last weekend and throw it to the waffle iron. I’m glad I did because LOOK AT THIS. That’s a waffle stuffed with crumbled turkey bacon, chives,…

Berry Patch Strikes Back!

A seemingly endless supply of house guests has my baking game on overdrive. For tomorrow morning, I resurrected, the always wonderful Greek Yogurt Blueberry cake. I must say, this is the best one yet! I used a spring form pan instead of a cake pan and perfected the crumble if I do say so myself….

Breakfast for the Bachelorette?

Those step-by-step blog posts where there are 20 photos of an egg being beaten into a bowl of something, then the bowl, then an oven shot, and on and on and on……just ugh. It takes 20 minutes to find the damn recipe. I’ve tried to keep my musings free of the sausage making photos, but…
