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!

Oxtails -- a Long-Time Favorite


I have been cooking oxtails for years. More recently, I have taken a liking to cooking my oxtails with star anise.

I was first introduced to oxtails during my time in Beaumont, Texas. I did not find the steaming lot, kept warm in a buffet line, appetizing. But my lunch mate informed me that it would be a mistake of tremendous an unforgivable proportions if I were to forego the oxtails.

So glad I didn't. It led to a love affair.

Yes, oxtails have got to be one of the most challenging meats to eat. Certainly not business or date night food at all. At all. But I love how a long, soft cook can really bring out the flavor and the tenderness of this wonderful meat.

  1. On the other hand, if you have a date and find that the person eats some off-center food like you do, it could be a solid basis for, well, another date.
