Spinster Records and Seoul Kitchen, Oak Cliff, Dallas

1. Drive down to the Green Lights of Dallas; drive past them. Over Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge and past the new trolley tracks, to Davis Street – 829. Find Spinster Records illuminated on the dark end of the street, past the bars and sidewalks of Bishop Arts. 2. Walk through the open door. 3. Wander…

Anyplace Glamorous : Walking in New York, Thai Grill and Sushi

So I admit, New York actually is glamorous. The Anyplace Glamorous category was invented for places that have “found” glamour. Or maybe created. But I’m going to let this one through for some reason, just a walk in the dark that wouldn’t make it to the front of the queue if I was making real…

New Years, More Goals, Results Always Mixed

I’ve never been the biggest fan of New Year’s resolutions, but the past few years I’ve found myself liking to make goals around this time. I suppose that is nearly the same thing. Sometimes I fail at them; sometimes my priorities change during the year; sometimes I make some progress. It is hard for me…

Recipe: Icepocalypse Eggs (Eggs in the fireplace)

1. Wait for the one time per year when Dallas is immobilized by ice. 2. Light a fire, put all your food outside in the ice, and generally stabilize the situation. 3. Find some once used disposable cupcake pans in the cabinet, and coat the insides of the “pools” with butter. 4. Break an egg…

Juicer vs. Blender on a Juicing Binge

We decided to start experimenting with juicing. No, actually, that’s not how it happened really. A few days ago, we got hyped up after watching a documentary on Netflix about how processed foods are poisoning us all, and the benefits of natural foods. In the dramatization, natural food and juicing even helped a lady deal…

The Fishing License Diet

I would just like to say. .. waiting up for Thom = totally worth it. He has been going fishing lately,  and is apparently getting pretty good at it.  He just brought home a batch, and I cooked some of it with rice and the mango pico I made last night. Also,  he went for…

Christmas Eve in Pictures

Yesterday, on Christmas Eve, I took a photo every hour, for every hour I was awake. I was hoping to capture the story of the day, and interested in seeing if the pictures would tell me anything about my day that I didn’t already know. In the end, I found out that my day is…

Make-Your-Own Valentine’s Day Gluttony

Thom and I decided to make our own Valentine’s Day feast. I think we are getting to the point where most of the time, we would rather eat our own cooking than go out and eat someone else’s. We have gotten pretty damn good at cooking. I do wish we had wait staff at the…

Stupid Blogs About.. Really Good Stuffed Porkchops That Thom Cooks

I don’t even like pork. If you asked me if I wanted a pork chop, that’s what I would say.. “Eh.. I don’t really like pork.” But these were badass. He also does a fairly famous slow cooked shredded pork that’s really good, but this time, he did seasoned pork chops stuffed with fresh mozzarella…
