52 Weeks: Shoulda Hada Plan Guac
January 28, 2011
So this week my mother convinces me that guacamole is super easy to make. It only has, like, four ingredients, she says. You don’t need a recipe, she says. You just improvise, she says. Well. She’s a liar.

52 Weeks: Baked Failure Pudding
January 21, 2011
I’m going to be honest: I didn’t really want to try anything new this week. So I looked for an easy out. And then I found one: cooked rice in my freezer. Yes! I looked in the index of my Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook under rice. Lo and behold, I found a way to make brown rice unhealthy. Jackpot. To... Read More

January 19, 2011
In case you hadn’t heard, Oklahoma’s new guy in Congress, Rep. James Lankford, is going to be heading up a subcommittee at the nation’s capitol. For a freshman congressman, this is a pretty big deal. So congrats to him!
But what I seriously love is the name of this group: the House Committee on... Read More

52 Recipes: Close Enough Blackened Fish

Week 2: Close Enough Blackened Fish
Start with some fish that’s been in your freezer for a really long time. For us, this was a pair of tilapia fillets, but you could honestly use anything. Don’t use the fish if you can’t remember what year you purchased it or if you’ve transported it in more than one... Read More
Camp Fire candy? Delicious.
January 14, 2011
As a reporter, I love when people leave food at our office instead of insults. Today was one of those lucky days. I got to meet Pam Ballard, executive director of the Heart of Oklahoma Council of Camp Fire USA. She stopped by to say thanks for information we published about their ongoing candy sale. (Just in...

Selling booze to kids in Canadian County
January 13, 2011
And now for the public shaming.
The Canadian County Sheriff’s Office did a sweep yesterday of 16 stores that sell alcohol to make sure none of it was getting into the hands of minors. Only 4 of 12 stores sold to kids, which meant 75 percent of places checked out did the right thing. Compare that to the results... Read More

I couldn’t publish the photos because they were secret until a special reception tonight. So, with only a slight delay, here are the photos. Click here to read... Read More
52 Recipes: Everything-in-the-Fridge-Except-a-Crust Quiche
January 07, 2011
So I’m trying to learn to cook. I’m already a pro at eating, but maybe it’d be good if I knew how to make the things I enjoy. My husband and I made a New Year’s Resolution to cook or create at least one new recipe each week in 2011. (My column tomorrow will be about this good faith effort.) I’m going to... Read More
Arkansas Razorback band and football team throw down
January 06, 2011
Razorback football? Razorback Marching Band? Yes and yes.
I’m originally from Arkansas, and two of my favorite things are University of Arkansas football and the University of Arkansas marching band. I was in the marching band all four years of college, and I just love it. A friend of mine posted this video on... Read More
