i love to cook. this blog is a way for me to keep all of my circular thoughts about cooking, food, and wine all together in some sort of cohesive way, sort of a working recipe file or journal. i am also more than a little addicted to shopping for food and ingredients. i have no problem going to one store for meat, another for their selection of salsas, and the farmer’s market for veggies all in one morning.


i’ll eat and cook just about anything. and since my new husband, houston, built me a brand new kitchen last year, things have gotten a lot worse, or a lot better, depending on how you look at it. i can spend hours on end in my favorite room in the house. i hope you enjoy some of the benefit of that and come back often.

if you have questions or just wanna say howdy, email me at:

      yes–i am rocket’s mom! he talks about lili all the time. in fact, he misses her terribly and would come to visit her at the office more if dad didn’t have to travel on business so often. thanks for the feedback!

  3. I really like the content on your blog. You explain things very clearly and the step by step pictures are great.

    Thanks for sharing,

    I love your site. I like the pictures of how to do things. Makes it look feasible for me to do it. You should put your granola recipe on there. I still love this granola more than any others I’ve tried…and I’ve tried a lot. Keep up the great work!

      oh my gosh–sorry i’m so late today. we went to the wine & food fest this afternoon, so it is way too late for suggestions.
      try to sneak in a batch of chili or short ribs before it gets too hot. i will send you a link.

    Hi! I just found your food blog tonight and saw the photo of the strawberry birthday cake and would love to have the recipe! I searched your site for it, to no avail. Any chance of getting the recipe?

    I saw your tweet about rest rec’s – I lived in ABQ for about a year before I wised up and came home…

    You really have to go to the Cowgirl Cafe in SF for sure! In ABQ: The Range Cafe; In Corrales: The Indigo Crow or The Corrales Bistro Brewery (next to the pottery studio). Oh – so many more, but that should be a good start, yes? 🙂
