chipotle shrimp

[Week 27]  Also known as my birthday week o’ celebration was pretty uneventful on the cooking front, as in there was NO cooking at all. Lots of eating though… a happy hour at Doc’s on Friday. They have the BEST cocktails and appetizers. I recommend the andouille sausage spinach dip, and of course oysters on the half shell. [clockwise: gin & jam, linds-me-tree, drinks on fire, …

Girls Night: Cookbook Exchange

daisi - December 22, 2011

This year, my work friends and I decided to have a cookbook exchange for Christmas. Maybe people have been doing this for years… but it was my first time. It was so fun and so practical, as most cookbooks are less than $20. Plus, who doesn’t love a new cookbook? The only downfall was the weather – it was so cold and rainy, but provided …

Chipotle Roasted Chicken &Vegetable Pizza

daisi - December 21, 2011

In my menu recap from last week, I described this recipe as follows: This “pizza” was really tasty with a lot of different flavors. I say “pizza” with quotes because it isn’t your typical pizza. No hot, melty cheese, or your regular pizza sauce or toppings. I would say this is more of a flat bread than a pizza, regardless, it’s delicious. Here’s what you’ll need: …

It holds me accountable for our meals throughout the week and forces me to organize a shopping list at the beginning of the week rather than running to the store after work or on my lunch break twice a week. Run on sentence anyone? I’m sure menu planning isn’t something new to you guys, but it’s a first …

Just Peachy

daisi - August 10, 2011

Salsa is one of my all-time favorite things to eat. Especially in the summer when a nice, cool snack always sounds refreshing. Unfortunately, the unrelenting heat has turned my plants into something like this. Needless to say, I have zero tomato plants. In all honesty, I have zero plants. I left for one weekend and they all dried out. You could probably say I’m a …

After being continuously tortured by my friend Big Perm‘s taco pics, I decided to have a taco night of my own.  It was very last minute and was inspired by one of our last rooftop nights at our loft in OKC. Print the recipe HERE! Ingredients 2 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts 1 lime 1 small onion, quartered bay leaf 1 cup of chicken broth (or …

Chipotle Anything

daisi - June 2, 2010

I’ve come to learn that there a few things that can make anything taste good.  Garlic and onions, for one. Cayenne pepper, for another.  And chocolate. I recently discovered that chipolte is one of these things. As in chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. As in this: At a family get-together, my grandpa made this incredible chipotle mayonnaise.  Yes, I like mayo.  I didn’t eat it …
