you’re invited: academy awards party 2015.

 you're invited: oscar party 2015.

par·ty1  /ˈpärdē/

1. a social gathering of invited guests, typically involving eating, drinking, and entertainment.
2. a word used by socially awkward individuals to describe something which happens in the privacy of their own home, usually with very few guests, typically involving decorations and much more food than is necessary.
Such was the case of my most hallowed minor holiday: you can have your Valentine’s Day and your Mardi Gras, so long as you leave me my Academy of Motion Picture Awards Party, a.k.a the Oscar Party.

feast magazine, june 2014: pomegranate molasses-glazed chicken thighs + tangled arugula and summer berry salad.

pomegranate molasses-glazed chicken thighs + tangled arugula and summer berry salad.

I’m a little late to the party on this one; we’re already 4 days into June, and for reasons relating to my Wee One’s first week home from school and general summer happenings, I’m just now sitting down to write this. This month’s Feast Magazine is a winner; I know this based not only upon what’s inside it, but by the haste in which people snatched it off the shelves this month. My go-to newstand was cleaned out by June 2nd, and the place I finally found them at only had a few left for me to grab: evidently we are a burger-cover-lovin’ type of people here in Saint Louis. I couldn’t be more proud, and that burger on the cover couldn’t be more seductive. Continue reading →

farmers’ market monday: loaded chicken tortilla soup.

I am calling this Farmers’ Market Monday, but one could argue this may be anti-Farmers’ Market Monday. Not one thing came from the farmers’ market, and I’m not ashamed. I have made more apple and pumpkin and squashy things for you and for myself these past few weeks that I needed a bit of a palate cleanser. I’ve noticed many of my blogger friends have done the same, so I say let’s take a little holiday for a minute. A tropical vacation, if you will. This was our first very cold weekend here, so soup was in order, and I wanted chicken tortilla. With lots of stuff. Continue reading →

curried chicken salad + spiced lavash chips.

Switching gears again! From cereal and marshmallow-filled cookies to healthy-ish salads. But this girl can’t live on cookies alone, so…

It’s really hard to find lunches you can make ahead that are delicious at the same time. Or at least it is for me. I don’t do a lot of crock-pot cooking, because it always seems to yield enough for several armies and I don’t have that much freezer space. I tend to eat lighter in the post-holiday winter, anyway, so I crave salads, not stew. At the same time, I long for something hearty and comforting; just not weighty and nap-inducing. I know what you’re thinking; I’m very easy to please.  Continue reading →

red curry-lime chicken wings.

>Oh, September.

Thank you for bringing cooler weather back so I can focus my efforts on making snack foods befitting a weekend of both college and professional football.

I am not the football fan in this house, and you won’t find me sitting in front of the television watching the game unless I’m doing something else at the same time. But making ridiculous amounts of sports-inspired finger foods while listening to football? I’m so there. Football is just one big season-long excuse to make food i may otherwise not be able to justify making. like hot dogs rolled in puff pastry. or dips with questionable ingredients and zero nutritional value.

Or these chicken wings.  Continue reading →
