Mexican Summer Vegetable Pasta Bake

  My day has been a rollercoaster ride of craziness. First off the good – I got my internship, yay! The bad – I just got a haircut in preparation for my internship and I got butchered!  I have to keep telling myself it’s just hair and will eventually grow back. Another bad – my twitter account was suspended and ... Read More »

Ham Maque Choux

A dish made with ham, okra, corn, tomatoes, peppers and onions

  I’m pretty sure that I should have been born Southern.  Or maybe I was a Southerner in another life. Evidence: I love all things about southern food, sweet tea so thick you can stand a spoon in it, fluffy biscuits, sweet corn bread, tomato pie, gumbo, jambalaya; the list goes on and on.  Oh and how could I forget ...

I do wish I could be a bit more creative when it comes to fish meals, but maybe because I’m still unsure about cooking fish in general (I’m a lot more comfortable with chicken or pork) that ...

Yet another – I have no time what can I throw together meal.  Can anyone else sense a theme in my life right now?  I usually do slow cooker meals on Wednesday since I have class, but I knew Tuesday night I was basically going to spend the whole time studying so when I woke up I threw together another ...
