Cooking up a storm in Inglewood!
elbow deep in dulce de leche
I am hoping there is no photographic evidence of my face from that night, since I spent the entire evening completely slackjawed in awe. That lady? Capital-T-alented. What a spectacle!

Hmm, where to start? Velveeta Shells & Cheese? Milky Way Dark? Fritos, Cheetos, Cool Ranch Doritos? (was that a haiku?) Once I was fiending so powerfully for s'mores that I smeared marshmallow fluff on a plate and blackened the top with my creme brulee torch. And then ate it with a spoon.
I went to a party at a neighbor's house as a kid where one of the snacks was melted margarine, mixed with maple syrup (let's be real, knockoff Log Cabin at best), and we dipped triangles of white bread into it.
A Pinky Tuscadero shake from Bobbie's is my heading-to-Publix summer tradition. That plus a large fry is seriously a perfect meal!
Don't forget Jim & Nick's Taco Tuesday menu! I'm partial to the catfish tacos; the hubby likes Hot Link. Plus cheap Coronas and margaritas. Heading that way tonight!
It really is a wonderful place, great staff, always feel welcome and leave stuffed. Those little biscuit muffins are bonkers good.
Plus ones to all of these:
Cooker (the bread! squash casserole too)
Mosko's (chicken salad club)
Parco !!! (fruit tea! I dream about it. And green tea panna cotta. And the basil tuna)
Jimmy Carl's (but hopefully we'll get those ribs soon! maybe even at Record Store Day, eh?)
Alley Cat (that chicken sandwich)
Jamaica's (crazy hot wings)
Red Wagon (biscuits! and the Neil Diamond benedict)
Plus my short list:
Goat cheese salad at Basantes Green Hills, and the triple creme brulee. And the tomato bisque.
The soy lime salad dressing at Ken's Japanese, which I used to dip all my sushi into. I stopped going when they took the soy lime off the menu. Maybe they added it back?
This one's out of town, but the hush puppies at Bill's Catfish out on Ashland City Highway were the prototype against which all other hush puppies will be judged. I worked there in the summer during college, best catfish, best hush puppies, best chocolate pie.
I DIDN'T SEE THE STICKY RICE FROM GINGER!! Oh, damn. Their sticky rice with mango honestly might be my favorite dessert in the city. So good and satisfying that it made me skip popcorn at a subsequent movie, and that NEVER happens.
