More Food, Because That’s What I’m Diggin’ Right Now

by Wander Woman on Feb.02, 2016

Lately I’ve been on the hunt for meaty main dishes. I tried my hand at this Sage-Crusted Standing Rib Roast (it was awesome)…

And a new bakery in East Austin that cooks up amazing carrot cake, blondies and peanut butter-chocolate-sea salt cookies…

This Leek Appetizer

by Wander Woman on Jan.25, 2016


Whoa my gawd, this is the most convenient munchie to make. My best made this appetizer for us last month and I couldn’t stop thinking about what it tasted like in my mouth. So I  cooked up this speedy little app over the weekend.

Sautée sliced leeks in butter and olive oil, sprinkle on salt and pepper while leeks are cooking, then cook a little while longer with splashes of white wine vinegar and balsamic vinegar (but not too much otherwise it’ll overpower the flavor of the leeks).

Throw cooked leeks over baguette slices smeared with goat cheese.

That’s it! Easiest, most perfect app ever.

Oh, Hey, 2016…

by Wander Woman on Jan.13, 2016

Starting the New Year off right with a family trip to Vegas (my best came too—so groovy!) and some not-so-healthy eats…

To make up for inhaling a soul-filling 4,000-calorie Deep-Fried Snickers Sundae at Serendipity 3 in Vegas (THE MOST INCREDIBLE DESSERT IN LIFE! I still can’t stop thinking about it!), I’m embracing a salad-heavy diet back home.

I stole and made this recipe for a Mean Green Detox Salad and promptly felt better…


Unrelatedly, my daughter’s hair is killer. She gets it from her daddy…

Late December

by Wander Woman on Dec.27, 2015

Oodles of food, togetherness, karaoke, long-held cultural traditions and new ‘ditions for our little family. That’s what the holidays mean to us.Preparing lumpia on Christmas Eve is a Filipino must-do. These gents—the best Asian egg roll you’ll EVER have—go fast. I inhaled nine in under 30 minutes…Gifts are stored atop the fridge, away from the violent, curious hands of our two-year-old…

Cocoa Beast

by Wander Woman on Dec.07, 2015

The first time I had orgasmic hot chocolate was in Cambridge, Massachusetts, at a fancy, fussy chocolate shop called Burdick. It was below 10 degrees outside and their fresh, steaming mug of thick cocoa tasted planets better than the powdered shit I had known all my life. Ever since then I’ve come to love homemade hot chocolate—you know, the kind that uses real melted chocolate?!

Here’s some Sea Salt Hot Chocolate with Butterscotch Whipped Cream we made the other night. It has melted dark chocolate and milk chocolate, whole milk, whipping cream, vanilla extract, a little sugar, and Maldon sea salt, topped with whipped cream whisked with melted butterscotch. So swoony and rich, a tiny ol’ cup is all you need.

Farmin’ It

by Wander Woman on Nov.06, 2015

To get our pumpkin on, we took a drive out to Barton Hills Farm in Bastrop. Because of massive rainfall the day before, the farm was flooded (sadness!) and all the pumpkins were under water (double sadness!). So we motored over to a nearby Christmas tree farm in Elgin and hung out there instead. Bonus: This farm has hooved animals, which we just can’t get enough of in life.
