Month 6 of Calorie Counting

Month 6 of Calorie Counting

For anyone who is interested, here is my Month 6 Calorie-Counting update. Despite all the gluttonous food seen on my food, the majority of time I am on my “good”-eating behavior (or try to be), even though it might not always come across that way on the blog. Lost 3 more pounds in the last … Continue reading

Tio’s Mexican Cafe

Tio’s Mexican Cafe

Apparently it’s mid-November. How did that happen? Today I went to Kohl’s and the place was packed. What gives? Then I tried to go to the mall and couldn’t find a single open parking space in the Macy’s parking lot, so I just said eff it and peaced. The holiday crowds just irk me. And … Continue reading

Sweet & Spicy Almonds (aka T’s nuts)

Sweet & Spicy Almonds (aka T’s nuts)

This past weekend, I declared that I was craving some Smokehouse Almonds. This weekend I was also randomly surfing around Foodzie.com, after seeing other Foodbuzz bloggers post about the site. On this site, while perusing the “Snacks” category (“Nuts, popcorn, and more,” in an attempt to fulfill my almond craving), I came across an almond business called … Continue reading

Bean Burrito Half-Fail

Bean Burrito Half-Fail

Tonight’s planned main dish was half-fail, half-success. Let’s begin with the success, shall we? I have a habit of bookmarking recipes that I think I might like to try making someday. Tonight, I decided to try one of them: Mama Pea’s recipe for Bean Burritos with Mild Sauce, a healthified, vegan version of Taco Bell. Well, … Continue reading

Clam Chowder from Cooking Light

Clam Chowder from Cooking Light

Clam Chowder. Definitely a favorite in my household. Of two people. Though it hasn’t always been a favorite of mine. In fact, I believe the first time I ever had clam chowder was in Seattle in 2007. I remember my first bowl being thick, rich, and lush, and it was love at first slurp. While … Continue reading

Maize and Blue Deli: Amazingness

This weekend, I had an amazing culinary discovery in Ann Arbor – Maize and Blue Delicatessen. Oh MBD, where have you been all my life!? MBD was recently featured on ‘Man v. Food’ on the Travel Channel, so for that reason, along with strong recommendations from fellow Ann Arbor nommers, I decided to try it … Continue reading

Beefy Burger Noms + Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream

Beefy Burger Noms + Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream

Last night I was craving a BURGER! A big, juicy burger, to be exact. I considered trying a new Ann Arbor burger joint – @Burger, but have read less-than-stellar reviews for the place (if you have tried it, I’d love to hear what you thought!), so decided to go with a tried-and-true! Sidetrack! If you regularly … Continue reading

Lotus Thai – Pad Thai

Lotus Thai – Pad Thai

Good morning! I am a couple of days behind in posting, mostly because I haven’t been cooking at all the last couple of days. Thursday I was so utterly exhausted for some reason, so we went out for dinner. In fact, I almost took a NAP when I got home from work (which is completely … Continue reading

Dinner with the Black Eyed Peas

I’ve got a feeling (oooo, oooh), that tonight’s gonna be a good night. Soups are my favorite things to cook! I have officially declared it. For multiple reason: Minimal dishes: Soups are often one-pot meals Aroma: Soups make your house smell yummy Leftovers: What you gon’ do with all that junk? Soups are often pretty … Continue reading
