Slow Cooker Asian Sliders with Slaw

Slow Cooker Asian Sliders

Every now and again it’s good to humble yourself by totally making an ass of yourself live over the internet to be forever broadcast over Youtube. Only every now and then. Which is exactly what I did last week as part of the G+ Food Bloggers Community #superbowlplus Week of Champions. First, the Google communities are great and are growing rapidly. As all things with Google, there isn’t much you can’t find on there being discussed and chronicled. But if you should want to host a Hangout you should totally be more prepared then I was or at least bother watching this […]

Need a quick meal to get some food in your tummy before the impending sugar rush of the Trick or Treat haul? Yeah, me too. There is a giant bag of mini chocolate goodness that looks like it wont be given out this year due to the crappy weather just calling my name. So before I go all fat kid on that, I figured I should get something remotely healthy in my system. This weeknight quicky meal comes together with just a few pots and pans and doesn’t disappoint  The addition to cabbage slaw to the smashed potatoes makes for a […]

It’s been almost a year since we purchased our mountain bikes and headed out for the trails. A year ago, every time Handsome wanted to ride, I would whine to myself internally and barely pull myself along the trails. I was exhausted. I felt horrible. I wanted to quit. Saturday evening the weather was bordering on beautiful or packed with the thick hot summertime thunderstorms and Handsome a bad day at work. Seeing the clouds moving passed us, I loaded my bike into the truck and headed out for a ride all by myself. Looking up half way through the trail and […]

For reasons unknown to me, I woke up and decided to cut the soda habit on Saturday morning. We can call this a quarter life crisis or something, but it’s time to make some changes. I allowed myself one Pepsi on Saturday while at work and haven’t had once since. I’m staying strong. Pray for me. Now, I don’t think drinking soda is an unhealthy habit, I think drinking lots of soda when I should be drinking water is a terrible habit. I’ve also quadrupled our vegetable intake just in four short days. Yep, guess it was time to make […]

A few years before the birth of this blog, I was struck with the knowledge that there was a lot of food out there I had never tasted. New flavors, textures and cuisines all together I had never even given notice to. The rest is history. Now, wrought with heavy debate, I can not choose my favorite type of food, my favorite meal, dessert or more. And every day I discover more. Once you are open and willing to try new things there is so much more out there then you could have ever imagined. One of the moments that shocked my […]

Ever feel like you really need a lunch break? Chances are, you should probably take one. Back before I had my dream job, I know we would hit the ground running on our lunch break as a chance to get the stress of the day out of our system and to laugh of the worries of the day. A break in the day to sit and enjoy lunch is one of those simple pleasures that really goes a long way – and I’m not alone in this article Chow lists 5 reasons to take a break for lunch. Now that I […]

Thai Turkey Burgers with Broccoli Slaw

The other day I stumbled across this post from Chow about Backseat Grillers. It talks about those people that can’t help but be a little to involved with your grill at a barbecue. Those people that jump in and flip burgers, change temps and try to run the show for you. They are just trying to be helpful, but we all know how much this can grate on your nerves. It also talks about how hard it can be as a female at the grill to avoid these people. I talked last week about how in our household, I am […]

We have a winner! Fooddreamer has won a copy of Baked Explorations from last weeks giveaway! Congratulations and enjoy! The Baked books are amazing. I totally just lost my train of taught because of House. Normally, I am not one to watch TV but I’ve taken to having it on in the background on the nights that Handsome is in school. The problem is I have gotten so used to not watching shows that I really have no idea whats going on or what’s even on. House is easy because someone gets sick, 45 minutes of drama, House cures them.
