Heart in a Box – One of the Saddest Days of My Life

It has taken me many years to get over the death of the first dog I owned as an adult. Now that we’re settled back in Austin, we’re thinking about the possibility of expanding our little family of two (no, not a baby) but even the thought of it still pulls at my heartstrings. I’m… Continue reading Heart in a Box – One of the Saddest Days of My Life

I Moustache You a Question…

Do you celebrate Movember? If so, why? This year has probably been one of the hardest ones in our lives. Between settling back into a normal routine/reintegration and family health problems, we've had to step back a bit and rethink our priorities a bit. One of the ways we handle emotional responses is to act.… Continue reading I Moustache You a Question…

Food Truck Friday: Oyama

One of the challenges of this Food Truck Friday series is that, while Shaun and I are from Austin, we currently live on outskirts of town (due to uber cheap rent). So every week we have to make the 15 mile trek back into town to get our hands on some good eats. This week,… Continue reading Food Truck Friday: Oyama

Food Truck Friday: Svante’s Stuffed Burgers

I have the unfortunate burden of being a complete burger snob. I have successfully steered clear of burgers from McDonalds in the past 15 years and recently, I’ve been on the search for the perfect burger. Burgers, tacos, and pizza make the trifecta of food perfection. During our foodie adventure through Austin food trucks we… Continue reading Food Truck Friday: Svante’s Stuffed Burgers

Food Truck Friday: Veracruz All Natural

I’ll be honest here. I’m a picky bitch when it comes to salsa. I live in Texas, the heart of TexMex and fab salsa that will knock your socks off and burn a hole right through you if you eat too much. I have high expectations - and rightly so. But I admit, it has… Continue reading Food Truck Friday: Veracruz All Natural

Food Truck Friday: East Side King

This week we are doing something a little bit different and are deviating from our Food Truck Challenge. When friends are in town, we like to really bring it up a notch and decided on hitting up Chef Paul Qui’s East Side King at Liberty Bar. In true Austin fashion, this is Asian fusion at… Continue reading Food Truck Friday: East Side King

Food Truck Friday: Spartan Pizza

Shaun and I putted up to the 6th and Waller food truck park on our scooter, nervously eyeing the sky. “We’re done with rain for today!” proclaimed Shaun. I wasn’t so sure. With a quick glance, I noticed that we weren’t in too much trouble heading to Spartan Pizza. This food truck part in Austin… Continue reading Food Truck Friday: Spartan Pizza

Food Truck Friday: Burro Cheese Kitchen

It was my turn to pick the food truck this week. What did this lactose intolerant girl pick? My holy grail; My forbidden fruit; Burro Cheese Kitchen - the one and only artisan grilled cheese sandwich spot found on our culinary list. With no Lactaid in sight, I shrugged my shoulders and dove right in.… Continue reading Food Truck Friday: Burro Cheese Kitchen

Food Truck Friday: Way South Philly

I furrowed my brow as I tried to understand the name of our most recent food truck, Way South Philly. Ooooooooh…. Like, as in, Austin is South Philly! Har har! I looked at the menu in a slightly horrified manner as Cheese Whiz made itself known as the main topping for most cheesesteaks. At least… Continue reading Food Truck Friday: Way South Philly

Getting Our Brunch on at Epicerie: Austin, Texas

I wouldn’t exactly say that Shaun and I are brunch people. Actually, I can count how many times I’ve been to brunch in my life… TWICE. We found ourselves at the Epicerie in Austin, Texas on an early Sunday afternoon ready to add that extra notch on our belt. More than anything I was excited… Continue reading Getting Our Brunch on at Epicerie: Austin, Texas

Food Truck Friday: Three Little Pigs

Texas may be known for beef, but that doesn't mean pork has to take a back seat 'round these parts. That is why this week's installment of Food Truck Friday has us (us, in this case, being Shaun and the roommates as Erica is still out of town) visiting the pork haven known as Three… Continue reading Food Truck Friday: Three Little Pigs

Food Truck Friday: Llama’s Peruvian Creole

Adventure, danger, hilarity, consuming internal organs- this isn't just any old Food Truck Friday post. So grab a bowl of popcorn and preemptively sit on the edge of your seat, because this post has it all (also, it has food). "I'm heading out. You're on your own tonight." Those were the last words Erica said… Continue reading Food Truck Friday: Llama’s Peruvian Creole

Up and Coming Travel: Get Me Outta Here!

I can’t believe that it has already been three months since we got back from Mexico. While I am loving having a home base here in Austin, Texas, my itchy feet are still very alive. In short, I’m getting a bad case of “GET ME OUTTA HERE!” - even if it is just for a… Continue reading Up and Coming Travel: Get Me Outta Here!

Food Truck Friday Chi'Lantro
Food, Hometown Tourism

Food Truck Friday: Chi’Lantro

I am addicted to kimchi. The spicy, smelly, gassy-all-to-hell fermented cabbage really does it for me - I’m sure much to Shaun’s dismay. You can imagine what a happy girl I was to find out that the guys over at Chi’Lantro combined two of my favorite loves in the world - Tacos and Korean BBQ.… Continue reading Food Truck Friday: Chi’Lantro
