Weekend Update::January 26 – February 2, 2014

Nearly missed my flight home.
Beautiful Portland.
Sad, sad news about Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
Happy, happy days when the Seahawks played an amazing game and won the Superbowl.

Weekend Update::January 20 – 26, 2014

Sundance was a lot of fun. Celebrity sightings and little chats were a dime a dozen, not quite as exciting as it was when I was younger, but nice to talk to everyone there for the festival all the same.

Weekend Update::January 6 – 12, 2014

Another slow and sunny week in the desert. Dinners with family & cowboys, Zumba and a beautiful hike up to Vulture Peak.

There’s no place like home.

The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned. -Maya Angelou

Corn & Crab Bisque (+ Peppery White Cheddar Biscuits!)

Corn & Crab Bisque (+ Peppery White Cheddar Biscuits!)

This soup was a little more complex than something I normally take on in the kitchen, but I was so enamored by a corn crab bisque I had at Bistro Boudin in San Francisco over the holidays, I wanted to make an attempt to recreate it at home. It was a bit overwhelming, but it was quite delicious, and now that I’ve done it once, I think it will be a lot less painful to give it another go. So, if you don’t want to try cooking this yourself, let me know and I’ll have you over for dinner some evening this winter.
