Pork Soft Tacos


At my house, we eat tacos on Tuesdays, but the same is also true for any other day that ends in y. I’ve wrapped everything from tofu to fried green tomatoes up in tortillas, and my fridge is always stocked with them. What I miss most though is fresh, handmade corn tortillas! As soon as…

Second Wind


April 4, 2018, the last day I clicked “Publish”. Nearly a year has passed since my last blog entry, and as I sit at my desk, with my clammy tiptoes pressed against our bamboo floors, trying to balance the black, slightly under inflated yoga ball, that’s indifferently bending and rolling beneath me, I ignore the…

Blackened Fish Tacos


  Driving back and forth from home to school three times a day for a whopping total of three hours a day in the car five days a week makes blogging regularly a bit of a challenge. Hopefully in the very near future I will have transportation assistance and can re-establish some sort of a…

Duck Breast Tacos


Since my lovely Herman’s Duck Breast came 4 to a package, I of course could not resist wrapping the leftovers up in a corn tortilla. This is definitely not your average taco and is something I am unfortunately going to crave like crazy now. And because I did utilize leftovers, this taco treat took less…

Chili Lime Shrimp Tacos


Labor Day, I was out manning my grill late into the night. When you’ve got smoked pork butt on the menu, you might want to avoid the rookie error I made and fire up your grill no later than midday. But I got distracted in the Wastelands, when I was finally like, “oh crap, I’m…

Cauliflower Soft Tacos


  Peace, love, and taco grease! Right? Well in this case, peace love, and sauteed cauliflower spiked with fennel and smoked paprika. Add a little water to the saute skillet just before serving and voila! Taco grease! Well, it was tasty enough to fool this die hard taco lover anyway. Add a side of my…

Daikon Scrambled Egg Tacos


What’s the number one must have hiking accessory? Why a hearty breakfast of course! Before I ventured out on my first hike on the Fairhill Trails near my home, I got busy preparing breakfast. With several organic daikon radishes in my fridge, courtesy of Fair Weather Farm at Fairhill, I decided to saute them hash-style…

Breakfast Tacos with Cumin Spiked Scrambled Eggs and Salsa


So yeah, another taco recipe. What can I say? You can take the girl out of Texas, but you can’t take the TexMex out of the girl. This recipe is indeed amazing for breakfast, but don’t shy away from whipping this dish up for a fast and simple weeknight dinner. This recipe was for two,…

TexMex Soft Tacos


We do have Taco Tuesdays at my house but may also have Taco Thursday or Friday or Monday for that matter. Basically as far as our household is concerned, tacos are acceptable any day that ends in “y”. Most soft tacos are served authentic street taco style nowadays with small double corn tortillas grilled then…
