We desperately needed a long weekend, wanted a romantic getaway, but didn’t have a lot of time to mess with the process of flights, hotels and what to do when we get to where we’re going. So, after short deliberations, we decided on cruising down to the Baja Sur California region of Mexico. Like any […]
When it comes to Macaroni and Cheese, I, Mia, dub myself somewhat of a fanatical connoisseur of sorts. I’ve scoured the webosphere in search of the best places in Los Angeles, Seattle, New York…and just about anywhere else I visit for that matter. If we go out to eat, I find a place with Mac on the […]
Why sit amongst the other couples in a bustling restaurant, waiting for our food to arrive when we can get cozy at home, watching re-runs of Battlestar Gallactica and noshing on some amazing food? As an homage to our otherwise unconventional relationship, Jordan and I went out on a limb to prepare an unconventional Valentine’s […]
Even when we’re not traveling, Jordan and I are constantly trying to find the best food. When we’re not traveling, we often cook at home, trying to eat out only once or twice a week (there’s a reason for this that goes far beyond saving money – but I’ll get to that later). But just […]
You know you’re lucky beyond a doubt when family in the Northwest is forging rain and friends on the East Coast endure frigid winter mornings while you decide which sundress to wear on your way out to a day at the Malibu Wines’ outdoor tasting room. In California, January is my favorite time of year […]
This Thanksgiving we planned a trip out to Seattle to delve into the rainy city’s food network. Although cold and slightly windy, to my surprise, we didn’t see a drop of rain. Our picture-perfect Seattle trip consisted of the following: Tour the Seattle Underground- Quite interesting, talks about how the city was originally built below […]
I realized we had chicken, celery, carrots, onions and chicken broth, paired with a roll of pie crust dough in the refridgerator, so what else would I make besides a chicken pot pie!? I popped downstairs to the store to get the remaining necessities and began my baking adventure.
After realizing we made the wrong decision and ate a lot of food that wasn’t even really good, we stumbled out of the hotel and headed up to Mt. Charleston, where my grandfather lives part-time. It’s a quaint little mountain town
We marinated the chicken in the mandarin orange juice (drained from the can), soy sauce and about a teaspoon of honey.
For the salad dressing, I make-shifted a dressing out of extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinaigrette, mandarin orange juice and a dash of soy sauce.
Shortly thereafter, we hopped in the truck- followed closely by the attached trailer- and forged the I-90 to Kachess. The drive was beautiful- I must have looked like a small child with as infatuated as I was by the views.
