current food obessions

so, for those of you who do not know me well, I am very obsessive, especially about my food and cooking. below is the list of my current food and cooking obsessions, hope you enjoy the list.

  1. talenti sorbet -- this stuff is out of this world!! here in waco I have only been able to find it at HEB, but those of you in larger cities probably have more options to get it. it is italian sorbet and it is to die for, we have tried quite a few of the flavors, but my favorite is sonoma strawberry. I can talk myself into it because a pint of it is about 1/3 the calories of a pint of blue bell ice cream, unfortunately its also about three times the cost of bluebell as well.
  2. diners, drive ins, and dives -- I am a food network junkie and mike got me hooked on this show. there is really not much else to say, if you've never watched it, you should give it a try.
  3. what about cupcakes -- this is a local cupcake shop here in waco (actually it is just a block away from my office) and they have the best cupcakes that you have ever tasted! I am so addicted to them and that is not a good thing with them being so close!
  4. prime rib from rudy’s barbq -- rudy's is a local barbq chain here in texas and as I have mentioned before, I am a bit of a barbq snob, but rudy's is definitely the best barbq in waco. they have prime rib every week from friday night until they run out on sunday and it is so good. in fact, very few weekends go by that we do not have rudy's prime rib for at least one meal.
  5. sopapillas from rosas cafe -- for drive thru food, these are pretty good and they always cure any sweet craving I've got.
  6. hideous pomegranate liquor -- I love the taste of pomegranate, but when I went to the liquor store for some pomegranate liquor, there were 3 or 4 different kinds. the hideous one had lime green on the label, so naturally, I choose that one. it has been wonderful in everything that I have tried it in; orange juice, lemonade, cream soda.
  7. michael's famous biscuits with fuzzy navel jelly -- as I have said before my hubby makes the best biscuits and the only thing that makes them better is the fuzzy navel jelly from woody's smokehouse in centerville, texas
  8. the whole foods mega-store in austin -- naturally, as I foodie I love to grocery shop and this is like the mother ship of all grocery stores. I could spend days in here. we try to make a stop in every time we go to austin.
  9. zucchini fries with parmesan and horseradish dip -- this is one of my favorite snacks and actually one that the boys like as well. I will post the recipe soon here on my blog.
  10. le creuset cookware -- this is my favorite cookware (in lime green of course). it makes all my cooking so much more enjoyable and taste so much better.
well, I hope you've enjoyed my list. I know that I have really enjoyed putting it together. hopefully, you found a few new things to try.

I love zucchini fries as well, but mine have to be dipped in ranch. Yummy!
