I heart Korean food.

Here are some more pictures of Korean food.  During the California trip, I definitely had my fair share of it.  Couldn’t stop.  I love banchan (Korean side dishes), kalbi (marinated beef), and kimchi cheegae (kimchi soup)!


I could look at this photo for days…


Spicy, delicious, and legit in one bowl. Perfect.




Gloriousness on a plate.

My brother has a fantastic jambalaya recipe for a pressure cooker. With prep and cook time, it’s done in about a half hour! It’s spicy, meaty, and hearty. So much flavor in such little time. And sometimes, the bottom gets a little “too done,” and creates a little bit of crispiness of the rice -so legit!

It’s Nice to Meat You.

Chili day!  This chili is called Seven Pounds.  It’s because there is seven pounds of meat (bacon, beef, and venison) in it.  There are no beans.  Just meat AND lots of it.  Top it off with some shredded cheddar, avocado, and sour cream, and you have a bowl of legitness (I just made up that word).



Ribs and Slaw.



Two of favorite things: smoked ribs with a dry rub and purple cabbage slaw. Now, this is lunch!

The ribs’ smokiness and spices go together like two peas in a pod.  The crunchy, sweet cole slaw complements as a side dish.  AND I topped it off with a Diet Coke! Oh, and did I ever mention my love for Diet Coke?  (Let’s leave that subject for another post!)

Kansas City is known for their BBQ and here are few of my favorite places:
Arthur Bryant’s– Any sandwich with fries will do and they’re sausage is legitimate. Also, I took a tour of the back of the restaurant  and learned a few things about the kitchen, smoking meat, and the history of this awesome place.

Gates BBQ– I love their ribs, fries, fried shrimp, and seasoned veggies (these aren’t like your regular veggies!).  My friend Rob introduced me to Gates and have loved that place since!

Smokin’ Guns– Great brisket and turkey!

Oklahoma Joe’s– Awesome ribs and that’s all you need to know!

Number One.

I know this is the first post, but let’s get down to business!

Today I met my friend, Courtney and her mother at the Hereford House for happy hour. I have never been to HH and it was great. I got the 4 oz bacon wrapped tenderloin- medium well (don’t judge) and it melted in my mouth. It was topped with lump blue crab and dressed in an amazing béarnaise sauce. Two sides of asparagus and I was good to go! It was definitely a luscious delicious score!
