Pork Tamales Recipe

I’ve been wanting to try my own homemade tamales for ages.  A couple of things scared me off initially.  One, I don’t have a single friend who makes his/her own tamales (speak up if I’m wrong).  Two, Lard.  Three, I’d heard they’re complicated and  labor intensive.  And Four, I didn’t own a large enough steamer […]

Fish tacos were a bizarre and astonishing menu item when I first moved to Austin back in the mid 90’s.  I certainly never saw them on the menu in the midwest, and frankly, they took a long time for me to warm up to.  SMIL loves this restaurant Z’Tejas.  Like ridiculously beyond over-enthusaistically loves this […]

Fall is fleeting, and winter is closing in on us.  One of my favorite things about this part of the year is most people consider it acceptable – even gratifying – to eat soup at least once a week.  National Soup Swap Day will be somewhere towards the end of January.  I’ll be hosting one […]

College Football Season is a mere one day away.  Tomorrow there will be live football back on the air.  Since we have a Duck in the family now, I’ll probably be watching the Oregon game tomorrow.  And Utah is playing tomorrow, too.  Since they’re still pitching a fit about the BCS results, I’ll have to […]

Fridays are my easy cooking days, last night we had a nice, healthy meal which didn’t really encompass anything new, but brought together several of the techniques I’ve discussed earlier.  As summer has finally arrived in Dallas (allelujia!), it was quite warm at 5:00 so I decided to forgo the oven in favor of the […]

I finished my 24th vampire book I’ve read in the last six months today.  All this time, I’ve kept wondering why the vampires haven’t sought me out yet.  I have a sneaking suspicion it may be due to the amount of garlic I eat.  Vampire tales are mixed on their interpretation of their supernaturals ability […]
