My First Meme!!!!!!

A great big huge thank you to Gay over at A Scientist in the Kitchen for tagging me for my first meme!

I owe an apology for taking so dirn long to get to it, but it came in my inbox while I was on Spring Break, and I didn't get to a computer for a whole week.

Anyhoo, here are my five lame things...

1. I have ridden in a Presidential motorcade.
2. In spite of my self proclaimed status as a foodie, I have an unexplainable love of velveeta cheese.
3. I HATE coconut.
4. I would love to travel, but really haven't done very much of it (unless you count moving 1700 miles from home).
5. I am phobic about recipes calling for yeast or requiring me to make a cake from scratch.

The rules of this Meme are as follows:

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.
2. Share 5 facts about yourself.
3. Tag 5 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).
4. Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment at their Blogs.

For this meme, I am tagging:

Diane at 1700 Miles of Cooking,Jill at Great Cooks Community, Michael of Mel's Diner fame, ChichaJo at 80 Breakfasts and Candance at I Shot the Chef. I know all these people are busy, but I'd love to know more about them. I read their blogs regularly and love their recipes and stories.

I am downloading pics from Spring Break (I didn't take that many), so I'll post about the trip later today.

Carrot Cake!!!!!!

I made my very first ever from scratch homemade cake at 7,500 feet above sea level today. I have made many homemade cakes before, but that was back home in Savannah, which is practically 2 feet below sea level.

After many dismal failures (including box mixes) I have finally made a cake from scratch that turned out decent. No- better than decent. I think this is the best cake I've ever made. No joke.

It all started when my fried Emmy posted on her blog about receiving as a gift from her hubby, a copy of "The Joy of Cooking." By the way, you should go read her blog. She is nauseatingly multi-talented. She cooks and knits beautifully, as well as a bunch of other stuff I learn about every freakin' time I read her blog. So go over to her blog right now.

Anyhoo...she read the high altitude instructions and cranked out a beautiful red velvet cake that made me drool. After reading that, I decided it was time to stop being a wuss about baking at high altitude and try a…

Pork Posole- Instant Pot Version

I have a good friend at work who is from the Jalisco region of Mexico.  Lorenza grew up outside of Puerto Vallarta.  Recently, she has been educating me on where to find the best Hispanic products and food in the valley where we live.

Aside from ruining my ability to ever eat Mexican food in Rifle ever again, her teachings have made me rediscover my love of Mexican food- both dining out and making it at home.

My husband, Will, is battling a cold for the second time in a row- which was the only excuse I needed to get in the kitchen and whip up some posole.

In my opinion, posole is to Mexican mamas what chicken noodle soup is to American/Southern mamas... pure comfort.

I make absolutely no claims of authenticity, nor do I believe this is the best way to make it.  But it sure did hit the spot after a day of cleaning and craft projects!

Here’s the link to the recipe I used from a blog I read frequently called “Pressure Cooking Today.” I did not follow it exactly (big shock- I know) as I…

Day 1 of Summer 2018!

There are obviously many things to enjoy about summer. Cooking is one of my favorites. Making creative meals at a leisurely pace is a luxury that rarely occurs during the school year. 
This is my first leisurely breakfast creation of the summer. I had leftover roasted sweet potatoes, so I threw them in my trusty cast iron skillet with some rough-chopped red onion and breakfast sausage. Devin likes his eggs scrambled. I like my hash topped with a fried egg. Either way you go- it was a suitable First Breakfast of the Summer!
