Snacks the Size of Wheezy F. Baby

I recently had the pleasure of an across the land pond visit to Wheezy F. Baby. Not the Li’l’est Wayne’s house exactly, but the Li’l-est Wayne in Indiana anywho. I saw my own littlest Wayne’s (super hip code for niece and nephew) and my charming SIL made me this more that l’il Key Lime pie…

Divino

Does it feel like I was in Edinburgh forever? Working from my hotel room, walking around in the slush (destroying my leather boots), eating and drinking…it’s because I was. The last night of my accidental extension lead me to a charming restaurant called Divino. After reading reviews online and then, recommended by my hotel’s adorable…

Maison Bleue

During the great UK snowstorm, it was hard times to find an open restaurant – including the one in my hotel. Well, they were “open,” but dead and offering a really awful looking buffet of odds and ends. In my snow walk of earlier in the afternoon, I spotted a cute French/North African spot on…

Your Ass is Sea Bass

Let me start by saying that I’m well aware that my iPhone food photography skills are pretty shitty. And that my kitchen lighting is extremely shitty. (Is that a finger or a root vegetable?  I often wonder while chopping away). I would usually be embarrassed to share a photo so bad. Hell, I’d probably do…

Death and Taxes

I know you’re enjoying my play by play alone in Cabo, but I thought I’d break and head back to real life, aka the first date night, hell the first time I’d seen the Chap in weeks! The Chap and I found ourselves a bit peckish after completing a rigorous succulent arranging class at Ramble supply…

This Little Piggy…

Not long ago, the Chap fixed me the most incredible welcome-home-from-your-family shenanigans dinner. While I love to cook, the best part about this particular meal was the not cooking. Well, the best part after eating it anyways. A long weekend of family is always…long…but I got to hang out with the he nephew who decided…

Dîner en Party

I always wish I lived in a city that hosted a  ‘dîner en blanc’. Or really that I was in Paris with a handful of good friends for one of theirs. Actually, maybe I’ll go register for the DC one right this minute… Anywho….last weekend the chap hosted his own dinner party. It was a…

Chickens in the Kitchen

The gentleman friend (who I suppose I need an unassuming pseudonym for) is out of town this week so I decided to take the time as a much needed kick in the pants- running, healthy cooking, no booze, etc. My first generally healthy new recipe for the week was Ina Garten’s mustard chicken. I served…

Late to Dinner

Remember that time I spent a Saturday cooking a three course meal with a foodie companion? Then, I forgot I had a blog? Well, here’s how it turned out and I’ll definitely be making it all again. The chicken was perfection and seeing a guy in a v neck “truss” and tie up a butter…

Slutty Supper

Recipe test drives of late: Slutty Zoodles and a pear and almond custard tart (because the carbs have to go somewhere). Slutty Zoodles are a creation inspired from a favorite Miami establishment who I’m sure named their similar dish something much classier. I bought a zoodle maker and got creative. A zoodle maker (my name)…
