Welcome!

These are my adventures in almost all things food: recipes, restaurants, and just food talk. Sriracha is me, and ketchup is my husband Eddie. He is the usual tester for my many cooking attempts. From my obsession with reading cooking magazines and cookbooks to wanting to try every single restaurant that I come upon, I'm finally getting to combine the writing, the cooking, and best of all, the eating.

I have gathered recipes that I've enjoyed here.  The are also recipes where I took the wrong turn somewhere, or I simply felt it didn't work out so well. I welcome tips, advice, pictures, recipes, anything that will make my love of food and cooking grow and grow.

Recipes

Plenty of recipes had been listed here, and I had attempted them all. Some I had failed, some were excellent, and some fell in the middle. Either way, I get oh so excited going through past recipes, and even more excited of all the ones I get to play with in the future.

Oaky Eats

By no means am I a restaurant critic because there are some things I'm not brave enough to try. But I love to eat and I love to write, and combining those two things plus living in Houston, where it is a mecca of delicious restaurants, I'm simply wowed by all that Houston has to offer. So here are some entries I have written about some restaurants, as well as anything relating to eating, cooking, and working in a restaurant.

Crafts and Stationary

Besides food and sleep, my other obsession is stationary and crafts. While this site is mainly about me cooking and eating through different recipes and restaurants, I've decided to sprinkle some of my obsession of crafts and stationary here as well.
