Javelina Jundred Race Report. Sort of. Whatever.

November 5, 2015

Okay, I’m writing this “race report” because this is technically a running blog (At least that’s what it says when I google myself. Not that I’ve ever done that. Stop judging me. We haven’t even started yet.), and I’ve been told it’s sort of a requirement. Fine. I will write something, but I’m not promising […]

Cream Cheese Brownies (Or: Martha, Martha, Martha)

September 17, 2015

Even though I love to cook and bake, I’ve always shied away from Martha. You know who I’m talking about, right? She who shall not be named? It’s nothing personal, really, it’s just that she causes some sort of involuntary twitch in me. Maybe it’s because she reminds me of those girls in middle school […]

Chocolate Cake (Or: Mother’s Little Helper)

September 4, 2015

I think it’s time we talk about something serious, something we all obsess about but are afraid to admit out loud. We don’t want to be judged. We don’t want people to see into the dark little crevices of our soul. But our desires need to be acknowledged. We must declare our love for it. […]

Blueberry Peach Upside Cake (Or: You’re Turning Violet, Violet)

September 3, 2015

I was actually going to share some lasagna with you today. Green Chile Chicken Lasagna, to be precise. But I forgot to take the final picture. You see, I made it for a little dinner party we had last night, and you know how those things go, a few gulps of wine and all thoughts […]

Cake Doughnuts (Or: Nutritional Wonderfood of the 70s and Today)

September 1, 2015

    While most athletes think of training food as things like vegetables, protein powders, nuts, and fruit, I think of doughnuts. And I blame it on my mother. And the 70s. And too much chlorine. Back when I was a competitive swimmer, I used to train many hours per day – weights, dry land, […]

Lemon Squares (Or: Another Item to Hide From Your Family So You Can Eat Them All Before Your Run)

August 27, 2015

My grandmother (Grandmother – I’m not kidding, that’s what we called her. I’m English, remember. English Texan. Let’s have a spot of tea, y’all!) was the baker of the family. My mom was a great cook, but Grandmother was a wicked baker. Black Bottom Pie and Bird’s Nest Cookies (with homemade dark chocolate ganache centers […]

Sugar Cookies and Pizza (Or: What To Make When You’ve Spent WAY Too Much Time on the Treadmill)

August 25, 2015

Because I’m nothing if not obsessive, I spent the week/weekend making more flour food – cookies and pizza. Stop looking at me like that. I needed flour, remember. I also had a 150 mile week (although, to be honest, none of those miles were pretty – think Mr. Magoo on a treadmill), so I was in […]

Bread Therapy (Or: How to Solve All of Your Problems with Flour)

August 19, 2015

I used to be a little afraid of bread. Not afraid of eating it, to be sure, but of making it. Bread making is an art, an elevated form of baking that for for some is closer to a religion. One of my recent favorite books was, “In Search of the Perfect Loaf,” by Samuel […]

A Texas Frame of Mind

July 7, 2015

Back in Texas. It feels like I can finally take in a full breath. Until I woke up the first morning back in my own boat of a bed, I didn’t even realize I’d been holding my breath for the past five years. I loved California – what’s not to love? – but it wasn’t […]
