Sweet & Sour Tacos

Sweet & Sour Tacos

Tacos, I’ve got ‘em. Sorry for the lack of Somethings this week. I was back in Chicago this past weekend volunteering and visiting friends and wheeling and dealing. The internet and blog went by the wayside for 3 days and it was a bit of […]

Small Batch Strawberry Jam

Small Batch Strawberry Jam

We be jammin’. Does that expression ever get old? Not in my house it doesn’t. Anyway, my love affair with jam, particularly small batch, fancy, local ones spans as long as I can remember traveling. I think it really started to hit home when I […]

Island Spice Mango Rice Pudding

Island Spice Mango Rice Pudding

I’ve got breakfast on my mind. Not really because I’m bored with mine; I’ve been religiously eating granola + berries + Rice Krispies (seriously) for the past…3 months? And I show no sign of slowing down that crazy train anytime soon. BUT, I have had […]

Hello, Sunday. Happy Father’s Day to all of you dad-dads and pet-dads out there!   It’s been more than an handful of years since I’ve been able to celebrate Father’s Day, but that doesn’t mean that The Big Buddha isn’t in my thoughts each time, […]

Parmesan-crusted Pork Loin

Bring on the meat sweats.  They’ll go along great with the regular sweats we’ve all got going on these days.  I mean, sooooo hot. And Lord help us, it’s only June. My grill game is still going strong, and this recipe, and variations on it, […]

Hello, Sunday. The weekend, the weekend. How fast those 48 hours of joy fly by. It really is so sad. Yesterday I played my first competitive tennis match since N’SYNC topped the charts and let’s just say I choked. I choked so hard, and because […]

Piri Piri Chicken Thighs

Piri Piri Chicken Thighs

I’m so proud of myself for grilling TWICE so far this season. It may seems like stupid victory to you, and it is. But for one THB who has used her grill barely over two handfuls of time in the four years that she’s owned one, twice […]

Dark Chocolate Banana Coconut Brownies

Dark Chocolate Banana Coconut Brownies

I’ve been in a bit of a baking rut, and in reality my habit of baking up new delights has been replaced by making ice cream.  In the past two three weeks, I’ve made ginger, rum butterscotch, fresh mint, coffee and lemon crème fraiche.  No […]

Hello, Sunday. Terror, terror everywhere. Can it just stop already? Maybe if we all send all our prayers (if you’re into that) and good thoughts up to the power(s) that be to make it all stop? Besides intentionally avoiding all the news (because let’s not […]
