I Let You Go

"Have you noticed, I've been ignoring you?"

"Yep."

"Why haven't you said anything?"

"Because it doesn't bother me. I am no longer interested in people doing things only because I want them to do it. "

"So you're saying you don't care about me anymore? "

"I'm saying I don't care to make you into something you are not. "

"Which is what? "

"Someone special to me."

When holding on becomes to painful. Release. The pain after letting go is healing the wound. Stop letting people tear open the same wound. Stop feeding people in hopes they will feed you back. Don't let another person's attention mean more than you self worth.

Instead spend that time feeding yourself. Use that energy to make yourself feel good. Build yourself up to the point of never being in this situation again. Realize you have value as you are this very moment.

It'll hurt. It'll be hard. It'll also bring you strength. The strength needed to release what is not for you. It will give you the ability to recognize it sooner. If there's ever a next time, you already know how to get through it. Learn the lessons to empower yourself. Let go.

Cowboy Beans

I wanted one of my first posts to be Chicken Nachos.  As I got my list together to get the ingredients for these epic nachos, I realized there are a few mini recipes which go into this - namely: Cowboy beans, guacamole and pico de gallo. I decided Cowboy beans would be a great place to start.
My Cowboy beans are cross been between baked beans and chili beans.  I use bacon, leftover Tri Tip and Beef Brisket. They came out amazing. Now, if you do not any left over brisket and Tri Tip laying around, you can always make this with all bacon
Did I mention these are made in the slow cooker?  Ohh yes!  Of course you can do this in a pot on the stove as well.  
I took two packs of dried pinto beans and put them in a slower cooker covered with twice as much water.


After 8 hours I drained the beans, then added garlic, dried oregano (Mexican), onions, jalapeno, bell pepper, bacon, Tri Tip, Beef Brisket, cumin, salt, pepper, chili powder and molasses.  The slower cooker turn to low and left to cook f…

A Little Bit About Tay

Part of the reason I left CA, my home of 43 years, was be able to live a better life and to possibly make my dream of bring my cooking to the masses come true.  This is so very important me as, I thought this dream was lost to me.

For those who you who don't know, I have Bipolar Disorder and PTSD. The year of 2014 was almost the last of my life.  Things crashed down on me in a major way.  In time with hard work, I was able to become more stable; however, my cooking ability took a major hit.

I was not able to do things instinctively as I once had. I found myself having to go back to using, timers, recipes and other techniques which I had long left behind.  So many times cried over burnt or undercooked food.  I wasn't able to grocery shop in the same way or even make a menu.  For a while, I wanted to give up on cooking all the together.  I found myself growing more depressed.

For those who know me understand, giving up isn't exactly in my vocabulary.  This meant too much to …

When Life Gives You Lemons

These lemons came off a my friends' mother's tree. It was a rough time to back in CA.  My friend's son had died.  We were all a mess.  So, I got these lemons and made lemonade.
