Sunday Egg Thingy

A while back I posted a recipe for Dr. Phil’s Sunday Eggy Thing – a recipe he made on the Rachael Ray show. At the time I had never fried a flour tortilla so I made my version with a corn tortilla.

I finally did the flour tortilla fry thing for these fish tacos and oh em gee they were amazing. So this past weekend I had some tortillas left over from Saturday’s dinner so I went for it. And am I ever glad I did.

These are a perfect Sunday morning breakfast or brunch item. You can top it with your favorite sauce, salsa or leave it plain like I did. Dr. Phil uses Soy Sauce but I like plain salt and pepper. Divine.

Fish Tacos – #ReadingFoodie: Groundswell {#WeekendReads}

It’s time for another #ReadingFoodie book review. I purchased Groundswell over a year ago and thought I’d read it right away. It sat, literally, on my coffee table for months until one rainy day when all I wanted to do was read a good book.

This book first intrigued me because it was authored by Katie Lee. I’m a foodie, she’s a foodie. I like to read books. She authors books. See the connection? Perfect for me.

Emma is the heroine in the book. She is trying to break into the movie business when she finally gets her big break. Immediately she catches the eye of Garrett Walker, the lead actor on the film she is working as a PA. They end up getting married and things seem to be going great.  Emma works her way to become a successful screenwriter. Things are going well for Emma, although a little crazy with her schedule, when she and Garrett are attending an event. Events happen that open Emma’s eyes to her husband’s betrayal. She is bereft and takes off for Mexico where she is grieving the end of her marriage.

A surfer in Mexico helps her find her way back to herself. I was hoping for more of Emma’s story of how she got over the betrayal and how life with the new surfer was going.

Now on to the food in the story. While in Mexico, her surfer boy took Emma to eat and they had these amazing sounding fish tacos.  I knew as soon as they mentioned them I had to make them. Rather than fry the fish, I made it in the oven in a foil packet – my favorite way to make fish!

My coworker, Kimberly, shared how her sister-in-law fried her tortillas for her tacos. I was stumped. I’ve fried corn tortillas but never flour tortillas so, of course I had to try it.

Game changer people. Try it.

Two-Bean Chili

2 Bean Chili

We got a little cold front here a couple of weeks ago and the temperatures dropped into the 70s. Of course that meant I had to make some chili. The weather called for it after all. Some chili purists insist that chili does not have beans. Me, I love it both ways. My preference is […]

Pumpkin Pie Spice Snickerdoodles

Pumpkin Pie Spice Snickerdoodles Cookies

Fall is my absolute favorite season. I’m not sure if it’s because of the cooler weather, the pumpkin treats, the fun things to do, or the changing of the leaves. Since I live in Texas, our leaves don’t really change but all the other stuff we have! I usually start wanting to eat anything pumpkin […]
