I really outdid myself with this huge 8 egg omelet that fed 3 very hungry people. I stuffed it with fresh heirloom tomatoes from the farmer’s market, sharp cheddar cheese, and baby spinach. We totally ate it for dinner and it was a spectacular experience for all involved!
It’s late. Like really late. You find yourself in East Nasty. You are tired, tipsy, starving, and standing at five points clutching cash with only one goal burning deeply in your soul.
Finding the MAS TACOS! truck.
I love Mas Tacos so dearly the words currently escape me.
The Quinoa and Fried Tilapia make my heart sing and my toes tingle. Go get it!
I’m not a huge fan of Walmart, but whatever:

Is it just me, or does everyone else secretly fantasize about plunging their entire face deep into a mixing bowl full of chocolate chip cookie dough?
I made from-scratch chocolate chip cookies a few days ago and the results were very very nice. I don’t do a whole lot of baking and I realized that there were a few tools that I was missing that might have come in handy ie: cookie sheet, mini scooper, wax paper…
I just winged it and used my 3-15″x10″ pyrex dishes. Besides the cookies being too flat (my fault for not shaping them at all) they tasted pretty amazing for a first try.
I’m going to give it another shot tonight, using less sugar than the recipe calls for as I thought they were too sweet.
I stole the recipe from this fine lady:http://smittenkitchen.com
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 egg yolk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1. Preheat the oven to 325°F (165°C). Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
2. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended.
3. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy. Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended.
4. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon. Drop cookie dough 1/4 cup at a time (for giant cookies) or a tablespoon at a time (for smaller cookies) onto the prepared cookie sheets. Cookies should be about 3 inches apart.
5. Bake larger cookies for 15 to 17 minutes, or 10 to 12 minutes for smaller ones (check your cookies before they’re done; depending on your scoop size, your baking time will vary) in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
Although I work in a restaurant and it would make sense that I’d just drink free coffee here and forget about wasting the $20 a week on triple-shot skinny caramel iced lattes, the coffee at my work tastes like pencil shavings and dust bunnies and is hereby undrinkable. I will stick with my luxuriously divine (albeit crazy expensive) espresso drinks thankyouverymuch.. (For now anyway while I still have a job and can afford to splurge)
This past Saturday I went to one of my favorite coffee places in East Nashville, Portland Brew. I ordered my usual stupid-fancy drink and decided on a whim that an overcast day such as this particular day could be much improved by eating a delicious muffin.
I then snatched up a gorgeous blueberry muffin, paid, and sped away to work.
I drank my coffee so fast it would have been silly to take a picture. But the muffin was so pretty and quirky I had to share it. It was really rich and creamy and the baker must have used a pound of butter! (eeeeeeekkk!)
I prefer lighter muffins, but the large fresh blueberries helped balance the heaviness of my muffin and totally won me over. Check out Portland Brew for tasty coffee & treats!http://www.portlandbrewcoffee.com/

These are Globe Grapes and they are freakishly huge, which is why I have always ignored them at the Farmer’s Market.
During my visit there last week, a young, energetic, and tooth-challenged farmer encouraged me to try one after reassuring me that they are not enormous due to chemicals, hormones, or genetic modification.
I was quite surprised to bite into a bunch of seeds (a welcomed surprise since most fruits these days have been altered mad-science style to have smaller seeds or no seeds at all) but they were delicious, almost syrupy sweet like ripe cherries. Certainly better than than any grapes I’ve had in recent years.
I was curious about the origin of these gigantic seedy Globe Grapes, so I asked my new farmer friend where they originate. His response was better than I could have dreamt of. He got super animated, flapping his little chicken wing arms around and exclaimed,
“They’re from the Bible! Its in the scripture!”
Uhhh. Ok dude. I meant like WHERE GEOGRAPHICALLY.
He went on to quote bible verses for me, which is a common side effect of living in the freakin’ Bible belt South, but I just sort of stood there smiling and let him get it all out of his system while I bagged up some more veggies and shoved my cash in his direction.
So whatever. Bible grapes or not, they are really good.
