BIRTHDAY: PART DOS

BIRTHDAY: PART DOS

Nobody just spends one day celebrating their birthday right? I thought I would continue Latte Issues’ birthday week by going through all the delicious things we have made this past year and create a “Best of” post.  Just a warning, it might be a bad idea to read this if you’re hungry. (Ps- thank you … Continue reading

Spaghetti Squash and Cherry Tomatoes

Spaghetti Squash and Cherry Tomatoes

While Caroline has been on an amazing vacation with her family, I have been enjoying a week full of 100 degree temperatures. Seriously Texas, let’s cool down a bit ok? One thing I do love about living here is the abundance of fresh vegetables. I have become obsessed with spaghetti squash and as someone who … Continue reading

Tacos de Camarones

Tacos de Camarones

Sine I moved to Texas, I have been exposed to lots of new things. For example, I’ve been able to experience 95 degree weather in May. Not so excited about that. However, I am excited about tacos. Maybe it’s the fact that the corn tortillas are ridiculously good here. They have a tortilla making station in the grocery … Continue reading

Pomme Frites

Pomme Frites

This post was inspired by the great city of Washington DC. During my job search, I made a trip to the capitol to go on some informational interviews and spend time with my cousin. We went to Granville Moore’s where they serve frittes, ales, and moules. Since they only have a limited menu to focus on, everything … Continue reading

I should have known I would love the combination of artichokes, sun dried tomatoes, spinach, and almonds. Add it to a big … Continue reading

Paella

Paella

Although I took Spanish throughout grade school, high school, and a couple semesters of college, I can’t speak it fluently. Foreign languages just aren’t my thing.  I think Caroline was the only reason I made it through our Italian class in Florence.  I struggled.  I make up for it with my love for Spanish food and flavors. … Continue reading

Cheesy Chicken and Rice Bake

Cheesy Chicken and Rice Bake

With lots of exciting things going on in my life, I don’t have as much time to spend in the kitchen. So this past weekend, I made a few meals that would be perfect for freezing and reheating on the nights I didn’t have the time to make a full meal. I searched on my … Continue reading

Not Your Ordinary Meatloaf

Not Your Ordinary Meatloaf

This dish is one of my favorite comfort foods and perfect for a cold night. Cold is a feeling I have not experienced in a while. As I’m writing this, it is 79 degrees here and a frigid 12 degrees at home. I think I made a wise choice moving south. (We’ll see how I feel about … Continue reading

A Classic

A Classic

This blog makes it appear that Caroline and I spend hours in the kitchen every night making fancy dinners and desserts. Trust me, this is not the case. After a long day, the last thing I want to do is go home and spend time cooking an extravagant meal for 1. Most nights I stir-fry … Continue reading
