You might’ve noticed that I’ve been on a little bit of a blog hiatus, but don’t worry… Yo’ bish is back! You see, I took a little vacay because a lot of awesome shit happened and I wanted to just live life off the computer for a lil bit. I turned 31, my boyfriend turned 31, and most importantly, WE GOT A BRAND NEW NOODLY LITTLE BBY DACHSHUND PUPPY! All of this celebrating and puppy-obsessing had me a little off course but whatever, that’s the beauty of a blog, right? You get to run it on YOUR OWN TERMS!

So what has been going on in my life? Well….. The boyfriend and I just happened to be born 5 days apart. And no, I’m not slightly cougar-ing, he is definitely 5 days older than me. To celebrate, I threw him a big tiki party and made a bunch of tasty asian-ish food. There were little banh mi sliders stabbed with bby umbrellas, larb gai lettuce wraps, pho deviled eggs, curry chicken and sweet potato empanadas, and some other random stuff that I forgot about already. I also got him a piñata and stuffed it full of candy and bby bottles of booze because that’s what you do when you’re old, right? Continue reading

The Southern Belle – Ham + Cheese Cornbread Sandwich with Pickled Jalapenos and Chow Chow Mayo

Ham, Cheese, and Pickled Jalapeno Cornbread Sandwich with Chow Chow Mayo

This week, my whole world got about 300% better when I got a new little puppy! He’s about the size of a corn cob and is sweet as can be so we decided to name him Elote, which is spanish for corn! And since he’s a little dachshund, it’s even more fitting because of his cutie pie corn pup-ness and buttery little body. I’m so obsessed with this little guy. Jerm and I even started an instagram for him because we are those kind of freak puppy parents.

If you’ve ever had a dachshund before, you probably get why all of us dachshund people are so obsessed. Their little sausage bodies, along with their spunky attitude, and their undying need to be constantly snuggled basically makes them the most perfect dog in all the land. Sure, they’re stubborn AF and hard as hell to potty train but man, they’re so flippin’ cute! Especially when they’re little roly poly baby dachshunds and have way, way, wayyyyyy too much skin. They also do this funny thing where they play super hard for like 10 minutes and then sleep for four. They’re basically the perfect animal and I wish I had 50 of them. Continue reading

Honey Tequila Mexican Street Corn with Queso Fresco

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Altos Tequila for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

If I could eat at street food every meal for the rest of my life, I totally would. There’s just something so fun about walking around, going from booth to booth, seeing and smelling each vendor’s creation and then thoughtfully picking which bites I want most. One of my favorite vendors is consistently the roasted corn peddler. I love how they cook the corn over an open flame, charring the little kernels into deliciously sweet roasted corn goodness.

I also love the whole pick-your-own-adventure that comes with the roasted corn, too. When they hand you the roasted cob, there’s usually a table full of condiments to spice it up. Of course, there’s always the traditional American options, like butter, honey, salt and pepper, but sometimes the vendors step up their game and put out parmesan, fresh herbs, hot sauce and the like.
