Bob’s Burgers: Every Breath You Tikka Masala Burger

We’ve been watching a lot of Bob’s Burgers lately, and one of the things I love are the names of the Burgers of the Day. Punny, funny, and they hint at flavor combinations that I’d love to try. In one episode, Bob threw out the name of a burger (Yes, the Every Breath You Tikka

Summer 2014: Getaway Weekend

Well, summer has been going, and I’ve been suspiciously quiet. I’ve had a lot going on, some that I can’t really get into – but there have been a lot of amazing things. Earlier this month, we decided to do a weekend trip near where TheBoy works- which is right off the beach. We’d bought

Friday Food – week ending 4/24

I thought I’d try something new and sort of collect the dishes that I make during the week and share them here with links and my thoughts. First, is a dish that I tried for the first time. Shanghai Noodles. This was delicious! I admit, I didn’t make it with pork (I had ground turkey

Happy Thanksgiving!

And a Happy Birthday to the Oldest Kidlet, who has amused us all with the ways he’s responded to Happy Birthday. When I said it to him, he was still in bed, playing the new Legend of Zelda game on his 3DS. He looked at me, somewhat sleepily. “Happy Birthday to you,” he said. “Babe,

Recipe Friday: DIY Ramen.

I’m sort of taking a sick day- I got the cold that TheBoy had last weekend, and that the bulk of the Little Kidlet’s kindergarten class seem to have. While I’ve been good about washing my hands at home, and using hand sanitizer when I was in the classroom (I volunteer), there’s only so much

Review: Beef’d Up

First of all, apologies to anyone outside of LA. But we went to a new restaurant in Whittier, and I had to share. Because it’s new, the food was great and I want this place to succeed. Beef’d Up is a gourmet burger restaurant located in Whittier at the intersection of Beverly Blvd and Norwalk

Busy week, have some cookies!

It’s sort of a busy week here in the house, so I figured I’d pull up some old posts this week. And where better to start than with a recipe? Almond Cranberry Cookies. I’m not sure how I wound up at this recipe. It might have been a link in a blog, or I might

Ramen & Karaoke – an adventure.

Thursday night, TheBoy asked me something unexpected. He asked if I wanted to go to karaoke with some co-workers of his. Now, this isn’t unexpected for me. I have a singing background, and as anxious as I get in social situations, singing in front of people isn’t a problem. Sometimes, it’s actually calmed me down.

Super Bowl 2013

I’m not a fan of football. I’ve jokingly called myself a college football widow (though TheBoy has found a nice balance of football and family). But I do love the Super Bowl. It’s a time for family to come together, to enjoy some commercials and to eat. So when I was asked to handle the

Happy Thanksgiving!

I’ve been a wee bit out of it this week. Sorry for the lack of posts. Last year was a success when it came to Thanksgiving, so far as allergies went. I cooked the day before, making the Little Kidlet’s meal. So we’re repeating that. Right now I’m roasting a turkey breast (which doesn’t seem
