Ode to the Egg

21 May

So I fell off the map again for two weeks – what you want to do about it? It’s a blog, not a job. I went on vacation. Sort of.

I was playing with Porsches.

I was gazing at beaches.

I was eating peanut butter and jelly cupcakes.

Chocolate Bread Pudding

Chocolate Bread Pudding | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
Remember when I said that I could make chocolate bread pudding that would make any man want to marry me? At this point, that is just a theory, as I’ve only served it to a)women and b)married men. I mean, bread pudding isn’t really something you can bust out on a date.

Waitress:  And would either of you care to see the dessert menu?
Date: I don’t know, what do you think — Erin? Hey! Where are you going?
Erin: Hold on, I brought dessert! I just need to grab my bread pudding out of the car. Can you run back to the kitchen and find an open oven?  Set it to 350 please. Thanks! And make sure they have vanilla ice cream!

Not awkward at all. Second date would be booked by the third bite (his third, not mine, I’d be on my second bowl by then… amateur). Continue reading

San Francisco Treat Pt. 2

Cinnamon Sugar Donuts from Elite Cafe | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
Continuing onward after logging 13.1 miles, Al picked a great place for our post-race brunch: Elite Café. I had the Cajun Style Braised Beef Hash with Poached Eggs and even though the eggs were overcooked, the hash made up for it as did the cinnamon sugar donuts we ordered as our brunchatizer. I just made that up. Is that catchy? We had mini biscuits with strawberry butter too. Wait, are you lost? Did you miss Part 1?

Best Thing I Ever Ate

2 Nov

Golden Gate Bridge
Today I head to San Francisco to run in the U.S. Half Marathon with my lovely friend Al. It’s a good thing I’m going to be running 13.1 miles because San Fran happens to be my favorite food city. This means I get to carb load on Saturday night (likely more than I really need to) and have a celebratory meal after burning 1300 calories. That is, if I don’t blow it all at the post-race party. Have you ever noticed how much bad food is at those things? Oh wait.. I should stop running in races that advertise “chocolate and champagne” or “free frozen yogurt” at the finish if that really bothered me.

This seems like a good time to tell you about the best thing I’ve ever eaten, because it occurred earlier this year in San Francisco, the day after my last half marathon.  Now, it’s hard to claim something as “the best” I’ve ever eaten, because I like to categorize things: best cake, best pasta, best pancakes, best ribs etc. But as I love dessert over all other foods, this would probably trump any of my other favorites if you waved them in front of my face (and why are you waving food in my face anyway? It’s going to spill. Or get in my eye). Continue reading

Taste of Atlanta

Crowd at Taste of Atlanta 2012
You know what’s nice about living in the ninth largest city in the U.S.? They have FOOD FESTIVALS!! I went to Taste of Atlanta last year and was in foodie heaven. The 2012 installment has been on my calendar since the date was announced. For $25 you get 10 coupons with which you can purchase tastes of food items from nearly 80 restaurants in Atlanta. Each food stand has one to three items ranging in cost from one coupon to three coupons. While you can buy more food tickets, it’s still important to make your choices wisely; don’t just get drawn in by the name, the smell or the glob of BBQ sauce on that dude’s beard, make sure you weigh whether the portion size is worth the coupon count as well.
