Crock Pot Bolognese

It has been exactly two months since I last typed up a blog post. I have had a VERY busy two months.

In November and April, school gets insane- Finals are drawing ever so much closer. Happy note: This upcoming Thursday, I will be attending my very last first day of school. In May, I will finally be done with school. Forever.

Easy Apple Pie Ice Cream

So, I have had this post ready to since November and honestly, I just forgot to post it.

I am about to write a genuinely new post right now. :)

The weather has been cooling down a little here. It's slowly beginning to feel like fall. And when I say slowly, I mean extremely slowly. Mostly we've been in the mid-80s, but about once a week we end up in the 60s.

A couple nights ago, I was really craving ice cream, a traditionally summer-y dessert. And it should practically be like fall at this point. How could I make ice cream more fall-ish?

Brisket, Two Ways: Part 2

At long last, I FINALLY have the opportunity to sit down and blog about the second way to eat your brisket. My last post was 10/24 and today it is 11/13. The last several weeks have been wrought with very trying times in class. Projects and tests are practically coming out my years. This has been perhaps the LONGEST semester of my college career. I have never wanted school to be over so badly. The worst part is that even though I will be done with every degree I need in May, I will still need to study, because I have the stupid CPA exam. *Sigh* I can't wait for this part of my life to be over. I'm ready to just work.

Anyway, on Tuesday I get yet another project, and tomorrow I have ample studying to do, so I thought that at this late hour (10:40 PM), I would take this scarce and brief opportunity to expose you to the absolute delight that is Brisket Tacos.

Despite offering cookies, only ONE person took a stab at what the second way was. I don't understand you people. A simple guess with the possibility of COOKIES attached to it! Why wouldn't someone guess for that? I would guess for one cookie, let alone a whole batch... Y'all are weird. ;)

This is the epic awesome-ness that awaits you if you dare to make the AMAZING DELICIOUS FANTABULOUS tacos!!!

Brisket, Two Ways: Part 1

This weekend, I took a shot at one of my favorite Texas meals. Barbecue is one of my absolute favorite things to eat. It's right up there with steak, fajitas, chicken fried steak, and sweets of all kinds. It is something that absolutely must be mastered before I leave Texas in less than year. For my friends in Tennessee, this is a totally different type of barbecue than you are used to. That is not pork you see in that picture. It is beef brisket. And you cannot judge brisket by what you find at the barbecue restaurants in Tennessee. It is simply NOT the same.

Chocolate Strawberry Cake

This is my first ever attempt at decorating a cake. It's definitely not perfect, but as first tries go, I think it turned out pretty good! I asked Drew for cake decorating supplies for my birthday. So, on my birthday, I printed out some coupons, and Drew took me to Michaels. It was VERY exciting!

Chili, Salsa, and Cornbread

First, I'm terribly sorry for the long, long time since my last post. There have been lots of tests going on the last couple weeks. I have been doing lots of cooking, though, and I've taken pictures of all of it, so as  soon as I have time to write them all up, I have lots to share! This week, I even baked and decorated an AWESOME chocolate cake.

A few weekends ago, Drew and I had some friends over, and I was craving salsa, so we decided to have chili, cornbread, and chips and salsa. Drew kinda cheats when there are chips and salsa available. This salsa is totally addicting, though. So, you can't blame him.

Low Carb Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Cookies

Drew has been eating these double chocolate chunk Atkins cookies. He remains convinced that they are delicious. I firmly believe that these double chocolate chunk cookies taste like card board, and I'm pretty sure that I've never disliked a cookie before. Needless to say, I need to stop him from eating that gross card board crap.
