Mexican Street Corn Style Grilled Zucchini

A coworker and I were talking about our favorite foods this morning. "My favorite food is Mexican," my coworker, Alana, said. I couldn't really pinpoint down a favorite food, per se, but I could whittle it down to two different types of foods: Mexican and Asian. If you look at most of the recipes I've… Continue reading Mexican Street Corn Style Grilled Zucchini

Shrimp & Scallop Spring Pasta

It was a wild night in Oklahoma last night... Severe weather season has officially begun! Storms rollicked across the state, packing a major punch. No tornadoes in OKC, but really high winds caused a ton of damage, especially to State Fair Park. The Centennial Arch, built in the 1970's, didn't survive. There was supposed to be a… Continue reading Shrimp & Scallop Spring Pasta

Wait, have you ever… Continue reading Jalapeño Popper Pasta

Mexican Macaroni Salad

It's so, so, so hot outside. It's sticky hot. Knees-sweating hot. I-can't-stand-5-minutes-out-here hot. When it's this incessantly hot outside, I don't feel like eating---much less cooking. Sandwiches, salads, and cold chicken are my best friends in the summertime. I decided to try my hand at grilling for the first time ever yesterday (I'll have much more on that tomorrow) and needed… Continue reading Mexican Macaroni Salad

Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Bacon Jam

You know what I think is sad? When people continually overcook meat just to make sure that it is "done". Hey, I used to be a part of that camp, too. My mom would tell me horror stories about botulism. I witnessed first-hand how salmonella can wreak havoc on your digestive system...and I've been scared to death… Continue reading Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Bacon Jam
