Morning guys! It is Monday, May 4th and popping in here to kind of show you what I’m thinking about this week. One of the questions I’m asking is, how do you analyze a stock? So I get ideas. I try to talk to a lot of people about companies that I like, trends that…
When I started blogging about food here I had one baby and dreams of beautiful exquisite food that was half sustenance half art. Now I have three babies and dreams of dinner getting on the table in 10 minutes. These recipes are easy and delicious. And sometimes, they involve a microwave.
I first met Jeff Goins in 2007 when I took a trip around the world with a group of people. Jeff joined us for a couple of weeks in Chiapas. Over the past ten years we’ve become good friends and this year, we all decided to rent a house together in Portland for the World Domination Summit with a group.
Then, the six of us spent five days eating and drinking our way through Portland. And let me tell you, Portland + Food + Great People is a winning combination.
Once a month or so, Joe and I like to splurge on a slightly higher priced meal, you know, for research. We try to center it around a life event i.e. anniversary, birthday, mother’s day, Wednesday night, something like that. Based on our “research” I have compiled this Atlanta Dining Guide for you.
Feliz Cinco de Mayo. Today is the day for Margaritas, Salsa, Guac and Queso. I want to tell you that I have a great queso recipe for you, but the truth is I made 7 different versions last month and didn’t like any of them. So my quest continues. I did manage to make these delicious lamb tacos with fenugreek aioli and preserved lemons though. Fenugreek and lamb is my new favorite combo, it’s just right. So even though I don’t have a proper queso recipe for you, I hope you’ll accept the humble taco instead.
If you’re like my husband and just realizing Mother’s Day is this coming Sunday, you may be frantically trying to figure out what to get the mother of your children. Never fear, here are five Mother’s Day gift ideas from Amazon (because Amazon Prime saves all our butts) for mom’s who like to hang out in the kitchen, or have to be in the kitchen because their children like to live.
My eldest baby turned three on Monday. He went back and forth for a few days on wether he wanted a cake with salami or brownies. Ultimately he decided on brownies, so I did at least three test runs to come up with these double chocolate fudgy brownies. You know, for science. Also I wanted him to see the wisdom in not selecting a salami cake.
I made this roasted asparagus soup with lemon thyme crème fraîche a couple of weeks ago. My three year old refused to eat it. Eventually he did (read about it in the blog). Despite my son’s imprudent belief that the asparagus soup would kill him, it did not. And it’s delicious to boot. I don’t know what more you want in life than soup that doesn’t kill AND tastes good.
