Aspen, Colorado

I recently visited Aspen, CO for a friends wedding. The wedding was beyond gorgeous (see mountain top picture) and the food was delightfully inspiring! I wanted to share all the amazing photos and you will definitely be seeing me try to use some of these things in my cooking!

Check out some of the cool places I visited:

Madam Mam’s Green Curry Chicken

Remember how I said I love Thai food? Well having spent numerous years of my life combing the UT campus I came to love Madam Mam’s! I mean who doesn’t? My absolute favorite dish there is the Green Curry Chicken! Of course, I like mine spicy. As if the Thai spices they use aren’t enough… I add a little Siracha just to give it even more kick. Because its only good spicy food if it makes you cry!

I definitely prefer green curry to yellow curry. Green curry has a smoother flavor, I think, and is less pungent than yellow curry. And quite frankly, its looks more appetizing too. I have ordered this with shrimp and as a vegetarian dish and have never been disappointed.

ACL Eats

I wanted to share a few of my favorite eats from the Austin City Limits festival this weekend. You’ll have to forgive me but I had already taken a bite into most of these before snapping a picture. They were just so appetizing and the festival had left this little Indian famished…


I’d love to hear from you if you were at ACL and have any food favorites or photos to share!

Mexican Mocha Freeze at Bouldin Creek Cafe

I am a huge coffee lover. Especially iced coffee. Not just for the caffeine jolt but I love the smell of coffee and all the rich flavors. I stopped off at my local coffee shop and just had to try this:

If you like coffee, chocolate and Mexican vanilla then this treat will not disappoint! Check out more at bouldincreekcafe.com

Prosciutto Panini at Enoteca

Vespaio and Enoteca on South Congress have been on my restaurant wish list for quite a while now. This Labor Day I finally went for lunch. Being an Italian place I assumed the prosciutto would be amazing (and it was!) and I’ve been craving eggs lately so this panini had it all! It was hearty, cheesy, salty… all those lovely Italian things.

We also tried the calamari and caprese salad as starters. It was a filling meal and I left very happy. I will definitely be back to one evening to try out some pasta dishes on their patio.
