What hurts? EVERYTHING. Holy crap, I am tired.

I flew 6 times in the past week. 6 flights. 6 times experiencing TSA security. 6 times of airplane bar-boozing, avoiding the dreaded, “Soooooooo do you have a contact number?”. 6 times that I watched people crowd the gate like the airline would only let those most eager on the airplane. 6 times I just had to go to the best (worst) people watching place on the planet. The airport.


But oh my body hurts. Was supposed to go to LA Monday morning, but no. I need to be at home. And so the decision has been made. I STAY HOME AND COOK FOR YOU ALLLLLLL WEEK! I promise. I know. You’ve heard this before but I do appreciate your patience…

As you may or may not know, John has started filming “Duets” in LA. Along with Jennifer Nettles, Kelly Clarkson and Robin Thicke, John is a mentor to young artists and a judge to others. Like “The Voice”, but the artists do duets with their team members. Different theme each week. So proud and happy for him. And those other 3? They are truly great people. I’m just honestly, sickly thrilled that you guys get to see John in a way you’ve never seen before. And I’m slightly jealous that he gets to judge people for a job while I sit here doing it for free.

Anyhow, since I will be in LA more in the next few months, the dogs are out there as well. I’m lonely when in NYC, but that’s probably better for you and this blog :)

I have had an awesome surge of subscribers lately, so it kinda…really…sucks that  I haven’t been home to post much. They must think I’m the laziest fuck on earth (while you long-time followers KNOW I am).

So what am I doing here? Just want to link you to the good ol’ days. You know. The one where I used my food blog to actually post recipes. Ha! Remember that!? Aaaah that was cool.

Based on site hits, comments, and searches, here are some of my (and your) favorites!

Apple-Pecan-Blue Cheese Salad with Cherries (I hate salad. I love this salad)

Chipotle Chicken (the fucking best, spiciest, juiciest chicken you’ll ever fucking have)

Mexican Lasagna (delicious, but worst photos ever posted here, and that is saying a lot)

Peach-Whiskey Chicken (it’s the shit. trust me, trust fall style)

Herbed-Baked Eggs (best breakfast to ever enter your mouth unless you love crack)

Boursin and Bacon Stuffed Chicken Breast (I mean.)

Spicy Sesame Noodles with Chicken (crowd PLEASER)

Lemon-Garlic-Bacon Chicken (duh)

Baked Catfish and Eggs (so easy I still feel stupid posting it)

Scalloped Potatoes (dammit carbs I love you)

Thai Beef Salad (aaaah fresh, tart, and delicious)

That should suffice for now! Cooking tonight though. Post up by tomorrow morning. If you like lamb, potatoes and brussels sprouts, I think I have a simple and succccculent little Sunday dinner for you!

Miss you guys.
