The Most Southern Fried Cake Ever

Collard green and cornbread cake from DariusCooks

We stumbled upon this photo on Facebook and it literally changed our lives. According to the creator, Darius Williams of Darius Cooks, “Collard green and cornbread cake. That’s mashed potato frosting. With gravy. And fried chicken sprinkles.” SAY WHAT. Darius is coming out with a cookbook soon, and if it’s full of food porn-y treasures like this cornbread cake, we are investing in multiple copies. Stat.

Darius, you are our new hero.

Easy Like Sunday Morning: My Favorite Frittata

Caramelized Onion, Mushroom, Brussels Sprout Frittata vertical

So, I’m in a book club. But as any good book club going individual will tell you, these gatherings are really 90% focused on eating and boozing, 10% focused on actual literary discussion. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love to read and I’m really glad I have friends who share my delight in devouring and analyzing a good book. But I’m under no illusion about our priorities here.

This frittata was my contribution – I knew we’d have plenty of festive Sunday Funday drinks plus some indulgent brunch sliders, banana bread, pie, etc. so I figured I’d even things out with some eggs and vegetables. This frittata has absolutely nothing bad for you in it, and besides caramelizing the onions, the whole thing takes about 10 minutes to throw together and another 10 minutes to bake.

Enjoy!

Spring Salad Season: Crunchy Thai Tofu Salad

Crunchy Chopped Thai Peanut Tofu Salad Vertical

Spring is here, the nights are warmer and longer, and I’m in full-on SALAD MODE. Watch out, world.

This Crunchy Thai Tofu Salad is somewhat similar to some of my other recipes for sure. I throw together slaws and salads like this a lot, but the one I made tonight turned out especially well if I do say so myself. (I’m not alone, Rob also thought it was a step above my usual big salads.) What’s different? There’s no quinoa or grains here, just ALL CRUNCH, utilizing as many fresh vegetables as possible. I’ve added tofu for some more protein and texture, and incorporated yet more delicious, fiber-filled vegetables. Plus the addition of curry paste to my dressing really amped things up.

Hydrate, Detox, Bounce Back: 5 Ways to Kick a Weekend of Overdoing It

Well, SXSW, one of Austin’s craziest times of year, is over for another year. After any big event, festival, birthday weekend or wedding, I harbor a mix of sadness and relief. Sadness because I love celebrating, drinking, and dancing with friends, but relief because there is only so much abuse my liver and digestive system can take, especially as I get older. It’s depressing but true.

This weekend, not only did I party around SXSW but I attended my friend’s lovely wedding, which was an awesome way to cap off my SXSW, but by the end of it all my body was just hating me. So today I tried to get back on the “I’m a normal human who makes relatively good choices” wagon.

Easing back into a somewhat responsible routine is a bit of a process. I have a couple tools I use to get myself through the “I just wanna keep partying and eating Taco Bell for every meal” withdrawals. Once I force myself to incorporate all these tricks into my life, I feel 100% better about everything.
