WHO'S THAT GIRL: A higher education obsessed foodie who is documenting her life in the kitchen. I love to cook delicious, gourmet-style foods for those I love and always welcome a challenge in the kitchen. With that challenge comes an impromptu nature. I tend to avoid following recipes to the exact, so you are not likely to find very many posted here. Being that I am a Libra and am learning to be free in the kitchen, the story always goes, "A pinch of this and a smattering of that!" Thank you for visiting -- and happy reading!

Quick Home Eats

I have been exhausted lately, so trying to keep it simple.

I cannot remember the last time I made tacos. And I don’t know where the interest in making them this week came from. They turned out well – ground beef from 17th Street Market with corn, avocado, tomatoes, onion, red bell peppers and cilantro made the dish. And I don’t care much for lard-laden tortillas, so found a healthy version, also from 17th Street Market.

It took about a half hour to put this meal together, which meant Nancy and I had more time to sit casually and talk. Nice treat! And a nice vacation from the kitchen – though I love it, it usually takes a good two hours to prepare a meal.

...and Nancy took this photo:


  1. I love the ease of your recipes, that everything is no transformed to oz, lb....the picture says it all...It's like I'm siting at that table...

  2. Thanks. And, yeah. I'm not a huge fan of measuring.

  3. I made tacos this week, too! I love homemmade flour tortillas (made with Crisco or vegetable oil, not lard) and I just learned to make them this weekend. It changed my culinary life :)

  4. I haven't made tacos in so long, but when I do it's usually shredded chicken with verde sauce. Yours look so elegant and tasty!

  5. YUM! I've been craving tacos. I think I might make some black bean chipotle tacos tomorrow in your honor. :) Thanks for sharing, and get some rest.

  6. Tacos, tacos, tacos. What a coincidence - I'm making them tonight (with fried fish).

  7. How strange! I cannot believe how popular tacos are right now.
