(Did you know that Betty Crocker has a Butter Pecan flavored cake mix? I just found out, and my whole life just feels sweeter.)

Casa Bonita
Tulsa, Oklahoma
(The atmosphere inside of this recently re-opened restaurant is seriously so very awesome and amazing. The food not so much. Still, I see why so many people remember it being special growing up with all the fun that it is, and I'd go back.)

  2. I love the photos of your latte. I use my espresso machine all the time, and never think of taking photos of it. Maybe tomorrow morning...

    And I am glad your fire photos weren't more exciting -- like photos of flames shooting out of your roof or anything!!!

  3. I love the series you made of the latte! Not only do you make a serious latte, you made great pictures with it! I'm glad the fire was not in your part of the building, but still it must be very scary!
    And you made me drool again, now I want to know how to make that recipe? It must be very special, making Tom cry and all?

  7. I really like the last one too! My step-mothers family is of spanish decent. All of the hanging blankets remind me of my own home when I was in high school. My parents decorated the house with a south western look and my step-mom had her aunt from albequrque (spelling?) send her a ton of those blankets and of course some red and green chilli for cooking! Great photos!!!

    And then I felt hungry seeing the Pork Chops with gravy and the cupcakes (I think I'd cook that pork chop tonight, thanks for the inspiration:)

    and the Case shot is beautiful.
