Dulce de Leche Ice Cream

Dulce de Leche Ice Cream

5 ingredients to heaven. 5 simple ingredients. I don’t know that any single of ice cream has ever been so rich and decadent. And after being pretty much sugar-free for 30 days, I was good after a single bite. After officially wrapping up the Whole30, I wanted sushi rolls – complete with white rice. Jason [...]

The Palauxma (a virgin Paloma)

It’s beginning to look a lot like… Cinco de Mayo! We are gearing up for our 2nd Annual Taquitos & Tequila pool party and I’m playing around with party menu ideas. And looking for every other excuse to whip up a new pool-side drink. But I can’t decide which I dislike more to describe a [...]

A Whole30 Favorite: Lettuce-Wrap Chicken Fajitas

April 23, 2013
Lettuce-Wrap Chicken Fajitas

We’re in the Whole30 home stretch! When we started this thing 4 weeks ago, I imagined Day 31 to be a monstrous carb fest: a deep-fried french fry sandwich in a tortilla. (Possibly battered and deep fried again.) But here we are, 29 days later and I’m all like “Eh.” Don’t get me wrong, it’s [...]

Eggs Benedict con Queso

Hi, my name is– Queso! QUESO!! KAY-SOOOO!!!! That’s kind of what happens when we go to Austin. We stop by the original Kerbey Lane Cafe at least once… a day. And before the server can even get his or her name out, my husband is already reaching for his tranquilizer gun. So maybe it’s not [...]

Enchiladas con Queso

If there are any guarantees when going out to dinner with me, it’s that I’ll order chips & queso if it’s on the menu. And that I’ll be full before my second of three margaritas makes it to the table. (But I’ll still find room for those fajitas because I always do. And then spend [...]

Tequila con Queso. (Queso con Tequila?)

February 13, 2013
Queso Fundido al Tequila

Yes. Yes I did. Tequila and melted cheese. Those are like two of the greatest things ever invented. Possibly THE two greatest things. But then we have to deal with where to rank Trader Joe’s Sweet & Salty & Nutty Trek Mix and goat cheese and then we’re just gonna get bogged down in the [...]

Crockpot Salsa Verde Chicken Enchiladas

“You always have to make things so complicated. Open a jar, pour it out, and just leave it alone for once.” That’s only a small portion of the rant my sister emailed me – we get along fabulously She asked for my “favorite green enchilada sauce.” So I sent it to her. And it’s a [...]

Pomegranate Margaritas

Pomegranate Margaritas

You recovered from that turkey & football coma yet? My goodness, that was glorious. And gloriously painful. And if we’re talking about the Texans & Cowboys games, just flat-out glorious. I wasn’t disowned for healthifying the broccoli & rice casserole. My dad was well enough to be up and about for the day. My cousin [...]
