Chipotle Skirt Steak

Chipotle Skirt Steak

No, this is not a recipe for anything at Chipotle Mexican Grill, which happens to be one of my favorite places to eat lunch. When I first discovered Chipotle Mexican Grill I was hooked. We had a problem… the closest one was 15 miles away. […]

Hot Tamale

Hot Tamale

I’ll always remember my first tamale, and the dicey looking man I bought it from. I was living in Houston when this questionable looking man shows up at the back door of the fine dining restaurant I worked at with a cooler of hot tamales. […]

Hot & Spicy!

Hot & Spicy!

Can you believe it is 2010? When I was a kid, I thought we’d have flying cars and be wearing silver colored suits by 2010. I suppose we do have iPhones and cool things like that, although I’d like a flying car! We rang in […]

Meat and ‘Taters

Meat and ‘Taters

I’m a carnivore. I don’t try to hide it. I truly appreciate a good piece of meat… and like to *gasp* eat it medium rare. My husband, who is the griller (and chiller) in the house, gets a little grossed out by my bloody steaks, […]

Salad… Its What’s for Dinner

Salad… Its What’s for Dinner

Anyone that knows me knows that I’m a steak and potatoes kind of gal. As I’m maturing, and that darn metabolism slows, I try to eat less of that and more salads. Here is one of my favorite ways to incorporate red meat into a […]
