Ebelskivers: The Next Big Food Trend?

A couple months ago, I had never heard of an ebelskiver; since then, I’ve watched them being made, eaten them, and borrowed a cookbook devoted to these round, tiny, filled treats. AEbleskivers, as they are spelled in Denmark, have really made their mark in the U.S. thanks to stores like Williams-Sonoma, that sell the pans needed to make these little guys.
Adam’s Uncle David introduced us to ebelskivers, on our visit to Santa Fe back in early March. David made us both sweet and savory ebelskivers for brunch, but the ones …

Wonders of New Mexico: Road Trip 2011

Adam and I drove almost without stopping from Marathon, TX to Roswell, NM to check out the UFO Museum. After five hours in the car, I kind of looked like an alien myself.  While this “From Roswell to Your Kitchen” cookbook looked intriguing from the cover, it was actually just recipes from local folks for things they enjoy making at home — no recipes from aliens here.
I’ve spent time in Santa Fe before, and knew it was at high altitude. However, last time, I had a couple days to acclimate …

As of this writing, there are 27 hours left to vote in Whole Foods’ national Foodie Fantasy contest and I’m the only contestant from Austin! I’m so appreciative of the Statesman and the Chronicle for encouraging their readers to vote for me.
Thank you to everyone on Facebook who has been voting for me over the past week and a half. Your support means so much to me and no matter what happens, I’ll be grateful. If you haven’t voted, you can potentially vote twice before the contest ends — …

Where to Eat in Santa Fe

On this trip to Santa Fe, I didn’t have much of an appetite and felt nauseous most of the time due to altitude sickness, so I actually didn’t eat very much. However, some dishes and restaurant experiences did stand out.
Linda’s Nutty Granola at Pasqual’s.
Plato Mexicano at The Pink Adobe, a restaurant serving an interesting fusion of New Mexican and French food. One of my favorite questions they ask when you order New Mexican food is red? green? or Christmas? Christmas is what they call red and green salsa together.
Drinking chocolate …

Where to Eat in Marfa, Texas

No one should be surprised that the biggest reason I was excited to visit Marfa was the food.
Where I ate:
Cochineal, which ended up with its own post because it was so memorable and delicious.
Tacos del Norte: Adam and I stopped in to this former gas station to pick up tacos before our morning tour of the Chinati Foundation. While it took a lot longer than the average Austin taqueria to get our food, everything was made with love by the two women running the place, and we watched them freshly …
