Nachos. And, A Cloud Of Dust

…is what would have occured if this were a diary I just unearthed, since it’s been that long since I’ve written or even logged on.

MANY THINGS HAVE HAPPENED. MANY THINGS. I don’t remember what I wrote in my last post though (something about updating more often? oops) so I don’t know where to start.

On the personal front, here’s the scoop: registered for fall classes not too long ago–NOT cooking related, because as much as I enjoy cooking and baking and recipes and being in the kitchen, doing it at top speed for someone else just isn’t for me. Way too high stress, not enough return. I’ll stick to creating delicious food for myself and my friends and family.

Also working a job (that I don’t really like) BUT going away for two weeks to TURKEY (courtesy of and with my unfailingly generous mother). I look forward to taking a ton of pictures of everything, including the food, and writing about it (but don’t hold your breath) when I get back.

Now for the real subject of this post: NACHOS.

Hell yeah I make good nachos.

In all of their glory.

02. Beef Empanadas

March 4, 2010 at 12:54 AM (Recipe) (, , )


This blog. It exists. Okay, it never stopped existing, but I stopped posting after the first major entry because I didn’t have a good enough camera to take pictures I had too many ideas I didn’t have enough ideas I am a lazy asshole. Also legitimately because the vast number of hugely superior food blogs out there was kind of intimidating. I don’t know. OH WELL, NOW I’M BACK. SUCKERS. And now that I’m basically a housewifegirlfriend, I really have no excuse to not update all the goddamn time.

So we’ll see how that goes.

Anyway! This is actually the second time I have tried to make empanadas. The first time, Eric and I were going to do it at my parents’ house, but after we bought all our filling ingredients, we could NOT. Find. Wrappers. Anywhere. So then we ended up buying pizza dough from Trader Joe’s and making these pan-fried weird pastry things that weren’t anything at all like empanadas… so since I had some ground beef in the fridge I needed to use and I didn’t want to do the usual tacos/hamburgers/whatever it is we usually do with ground beef, I figured I should give empanadas another shot. AND THIS TIME I WOULD MAKE THE FUCKING WRAPPERS MYSELF. Ha!
