I would buy this perfume for the bottle alone.
I'm still cooking for the Husband even though I can't eat any of it. One of my favorite meals is bar-b-que ribs cooked in the slow cooker. *drool* I recently found a bar-b-que sauce that matches my taste buds perfectly. Bea's Gourmet Honey Barbecue sauce is tangy, sweet, rich with only the slightest hint of spice. Right now the whole apartment is teeming in this glorious scent and I couldn't take it anymore so I spooned out some sauce and sucked it up through a straw. Oh baby, that is the stuff.

Unfortunately it will be in Dallas. Bollocks! Lucky Dallas shoppers will get H&M late 2011.
Hey H&M, check out Houston for your next location!
One of my favorite design bloggers majorly crushes on Kelly Wearstler. Though I respect her opinion I'm not vibing her Beverly Hills home currently on sale. I know Wearstler is highly respected in the design community but there's something missing. Though it is definitely epitomizes Beverly Hills glam it just feels like a prop and not like a home where the family congregates.
The woman becomes more gorgeous with the years.
It has been at least six years since I've watched Food Network this religiously. With each show I get a new craving, breakfast from Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, Southern chicken fried steak from Thrown down with Bobby Flay, crab from Tailgate Warriors.
Making a list of NEW places I'm going to rampage once I'm freed. East Wall Chinese Restaurant came up in my search for seafood. Reminds of me of good Chinese meals I had with the family and I'm longing to recreate the experience. Captain Tom's Seafood and Oyster Bar has me craving a solid gumbo. I beeline to Mama's Cafe for chicken fried steak or some major breakfast options - biscuits and gravy and Huevos Hofbrau.
Oh man. Five weeks left. It's going to be a long freaking five weeks.
On my way out of Macy's I saw an area full of fun little gifts.
An interoffice computer sleeve. How perfect for the new Macbook Air.

Hello, food porn.
I've been dreaming vividly about food. Aside from super cheesy pizza, straw and hay pasta has been haunting my psyche. I first tried it at Raia's Italian Market and have been obsessed since. It's a mix of everything that is so bad for you but tastes so good. Cannot wait to get a big bowl of straw and hay pasta.

I've written about my Mom many times but I don't think I've ever published those posts. Mainly they are about how I miss her home cooking and how she made the most flavorful and amazing soups/broths. Like many of my Asian friends, she never left recipes for her children. I missed her soups even more now that I'm wired shut and have been restricted to juices, Boost and Hormel chicken bouillon. So today I attempted to recreate her fish broth and came up with a pot full of nostalgic gold. I'm most likely biased because of my restrictive diet but it just brought me back.
If you're ever looking for something other than chicken broth or bouillon try this out.
Ingredients: 3 thick fillets of Tilapia, 3 carrots cut into large pieces, 3 tomatoes quartered and a handful of dried dates (optional)
Prep: Fry the Tilapia in about 1-2 tbsp of olive oil until both sides are cooked and has a nice brown crust. At the same time boil 8 cups of water and throw in the carrots and tomatoes and a little salt. Once the fish is done pan frying drop it in the soup and simmer on low for an hour.
The longer you stew it the more flavorful.
