So much going on...

I haven't been cooking too much lately. SXSW is going on here in Austin, TX. It is a big Interactive, Film, and Music Festival that started March 13th and goes on until March 22nd. I am going to try to make it to some of everything. Tomorrow I plan to go to a panel discussion about food blogging. Should be very interesting, I'll report back.

On Friday night I had my sisters and some friends over and made a big pot of chili for us all to eat Frito Pie style. I also made Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies that Bryanna Clark Grogan recently posted the recipe for. They were really good. Rich, but not overly sweet. Almost light and fluffy.

My son loves alphabet soup and I finally found some alphabet pasta at a little Mexican market near my house. It was okay; it could have been better. I really wanted to put more veggies in it, but all I had was celery and carrot. As soon as I get to the grocery store I'll have to make it again and post a recipe. My son liked it though.

I just pulled some Double Chocolate Chip cookies out of the oven. I usually just make a veganized version of the Toll House Cookie Recipe. They are my favorite. But I thought I would try a new recipe today and went with the Millenium Cookbook. They are good, but a little too healthy. Not something I should really complain about I guess.

Sorry no pictures.


  1. SXSW!!! Are you going to check out any bands? There are indeed some things that I miss about the U.S.!! Have fun!

  2. Let me know how the food blogging discussion goes.

  3. Did you have lunchbox size bags of Fritos, split them open, then pour the chili right on top? My son used to love that for dinner, and probably still would love it!

    I got to hear the blog panel audio. I thought the panel represented a good variety of blogging styles.

  4. The chili was soooo good, that the lunch size bag of fritos just wouldnt do. Next time Im gonna split open a family size bag of frito scoops and poured the chili right in!
