A Cake for Mama

by Wander Woman on Sep.01, 2015

I’m not much of a baker, but I wanted to slave in the kitchen and make an amazing dessert for my mother ship’s sixty-something birthday. I came across this recipe for Coconut-Pineapple Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting, and, man, was it moist and decadent! (I can’t handle dry cake.)

My mom loved the candles on her cake (which, as you can see, melted wicked fast). Lola has a pretty good sense of humor, of course.

California Love

by Wander Woman on Aug.25, 2015

We took a weeklong trip back to our (overhyped) home state to see family, pals, palm trees and grinding traffic. It was a fast-paced social blitz, but tearing ourselves away from Austin and spending time with our SoCal peeps is a must!

{Wandering} Eating Our Way Through Japan

by Wander Woman on Aug.04, 2015

My hiz’s job has been taking him to some pretty groovy places. One week last month he had meetings in Yokohama, so I met him in Tokyo the second he was free. It was a fast-moving, foodie-paradise trip where we bounced like youngens from city to city—just the two of us…

Stuffing my face at our usual honky tonk…
Why are patty melts so damn soul-filling?! Crunchy, meaty, drippy heaven!

And a quick nap for my tiny big girl…

Outside + Grilled, Stuffed Zucchini

by Wander Woman on May.22, 2015

Lawn art in New Braunfels…

A first for me: low-carb cooking! This would be stuffed zucchini (it’s just sauteed peppers, onions, garlic, goat cheese, and tomato-y chicken, with a gob of fresh jalapeno hummus).

And The Rusty Mule, a new favorite beer and music stop in our ‘hood.

H-Town and a Killer Kentucky Hot Brown

by Wander Woman on May.04, 2015

Crashed for a night at this grown-up hotel in Houston (because the teepee motel I really wanted to stay at was just too far away)…

And gave our diets the finger with this cheesy Derby Day Hot Brown, with bourbon-maple-glazed bacon and sriracha on an herby biscuit. Sooo worth it.

Campfire Supper

by Wander Woman on Apr.27, 2015

To celebrate our wedding anny, we packed up our car with all sorts of meat and metal and spent the afternoon roasting our supper at Pedernales Falls.

A meaty feast and strong cocktails…

Those are chicken drumsticks, garlicky herbed potatoes and tzatziki sauce over sausage wraps. (Crowned by mouthfuls of s’mores that I didn’t snap shots of.)

Hands down the best date night we’ve had in 11 years of coupledom. Happy togetherness, baby!
