Robby’s Cole Slaw

This past 4th of July, Kyle and I went to a friend’s for an old fashioned, supes American barbeque. While I have yet to unlock the secret to one of the host’s grilled chicken that was somehow more moist and delicious than some cake batter I’ve eaten, I fell in love…

Bacony Brussels Sprouts

I know you’re thinking, “Lord these queers won’t quit with their fancy vegetables!” But stick with us, it’s about to get good, ladies. This recipe is for those of you who look upon Brussels sprouts with disgust and disdain because you were forced to choke them down as children, despising…

Ode to Ina: Grown-Up Mac & Cheese

Everyone is all apple pie this and hot dogs that, but if our great nation’s waistbands are any indication, a plateful of creamy, bubbly, carb-y mac and cheese is about as American as any food gets. I mean seriously, if you put your nose up to this dish and are…

Maple Bourbon Carrots

I’ve have never been huge fans of cooked carrots. But, like all of life’s problems, food or otherwise, I always find sugar and/or hard liquor are an excellent solution. This recipe takes a page from both.           Sure, they’re supposed to be great for you’re eyesight, but (not to be…

Cauliflower Fried Rice

All over Facebook people are posting their “New Year, New Me” bullshit, and we are over here on OpenTable trying to find reservations at an all you can eat Chinese buffet… “New Year, New Notches On Our Belt Loops.“ After one of our trips to our favorite Dallas Chinese food restaurant,…

Lucky Black-Eyed Peas

It’s an age-old saying that eating black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day will give one good luck for the year ahead. Since childhood, I’ve yet to begin a year sans peas due to my debilitating superstitions. In retrospect, I’d hate to see what shitty hand I would’ve been dealt if…

Loaded Baked Potato Salad

There are few simple pleasures in life that compare to barbecue food. It is always delicious, almost always carb-centric and usually served (and eaten) in giant, heaping spoonfuls. Case in point, potato salad MUST be served. It’s downright unAmerican to not serve it. In fact, if you ever go to a barbecue that…

Kyle’s Mac & Cheese Spring Rolls

One of the first meals that John made me were his infamous egg rolls. I’m not going to lie, I was pretty excited to eat an authentic Asian dish crafted in the kitchen of a bona fide Asian.         I was half-mistaken. Although the egg rolls were uh-mazingly delicious,…

Roasted Roots, Greens

In the past there wasn’t much about a making a salad that excited me. I always followed the basic midwestern formula of a tiny bit of greens, even less veggies, fistfuls of cheese, mostly croutons and a crap-ton of ranch dressing. Don’t get me wrong, while Hidden Valley soup is…

Sesame Ginger Kale Salad

We’ll be the first to admit we were a little late to the kale party. It was just hard to get us too worked up over an ingredient that isn’t traditionally breaded, fried and dipped in gravy and/or Ranch dressing. But as it turns out, those early adapting foodie hipsters were on…
