ADVENTURES IN DOMESTICITY: Sweet Potato Salad Edition

Sweet potatoes, I’ve been told, are chock full of nutrients. Plus, they taste good (I wasn’t told that — I already knew that). And thus when I saw that Rick Bayless had a recipe for “Sweet potato salad with caramelized onions, watercress, and guajillo chile dressing” in Mexican Everyday, I figured I might as well […]

ADVENTURES IN DOMESTICITY: Chipotle Chicken Salad Tacos Edition

I’m a little concerned that over five hours have passed since I’ve posted something pertaining to Mexican Everyday, but don’t worry: I’m back with yet another Rick Bayless adventure. This time around I’m tackling “Chipotle Chicken Salad Tacos with Avocado, Red-Skin Potatoes, and Romaine.” Basically, it’s salad in a tortilla. Pics after the jump…

Adventures in San Francisco!

A few weeks ago I headed up to San Francisco where I saw a bunch of my friends, including blog regulars Meeshie, Malibu Judie, and even IndianJones. The weekend was full of all sorts of high adventure including waterfalls, ice cream, and trail mix. Okay, so not much adventure. But neat photos! After the jump, […]

REAL HOUSEWIVES OF OC PHOTOCAP: Whine Tasting

I never trust entrepreneurial endeavors spawned from The Real Housewives (although, I did enjoy Ramona Pinot Grigio). However, I always enjoy their ridiculousness. Nothing will ever top Sonja’s mystery toaster oven, and few will be as iconic as She By Shereé. However, in a world where Cafface, Gretchen Christine Beauté, and Gigi’s Extensions are a […]

REAL HOUSEWIVES OF OC PHOTOCAP: Faith In A Higher Power

Not much happened on the latest episode of Real Housewives of Orange County. We met Lydia’s kooky mom, who might actually be the first mother on these shows to be more age-appropriate as a cast-member than her actual daughter. A former hippie turned fairy dust enthusiast, Lydia’s mom was definitely something of a character, and […]

ADVENTURES IN DOMESTICITY: ¡Benchiladas! Edition

It’s been all of about thirty-five seconds since I posted an Adventures in Domesticity based off of Rick Bayless’s Mexican Everyday, and that just seems shocking. And so I am back with yet another recipe to tackle. This time it’s “Red Chile Enchiladas with Chicken and Melted Cheese.” I selected this dish mainly because a) […]

BANTER WITH BEN AND LISA #52: Exposé, Super Mario, and Jason Collins!

Lisa Timmons and I recorded our latest episode of Banter with Ben and Lisa this morning, and we had a total blast. We hope it translates! Here’s the official description: Is there any other podcast that can weave together recently outed NBA star Jason Collins, Exposé, Super Mario Bros., anthropomorphic M&Ms and, of course, Sade? […]

WATCH WHAT CRAPPENS #73: Alexis Feels Bullied; Also, Is This The Hood or Pups In Paris?

Hey y’all! New episode of Watch What Crappens is up. It was a pretty funny one! Here’s the official description: This week on a spirited episode of Watch What Crappens, Ronnie Karam (TVgasm.com), Matt Whitefield (Yahoo!) and Ben Mandelker (bsideblog.com) tackle an important issue for this country: bullying. Or as Alexis Bellino calls it, BOOLYING. […]

RESTAURANTS ARE FUN: Takara and Sun Ha Jang

I’ve decided to start a new little section of the blog called “Restaurants Are Fun” (name subject to change) to document some of the random spots I go to with my friends (and sometimes enemies, but that is VERY rare). I wouldn’t say these are full on reviews per se, but they’re kind of a […]
