Musician’s Meatless Mediterranean Meal

photo_14

Picture the scene: In a post-holiday food coma world, three guys descend on my house. All musicians, all recording songs in my living room. Yes, songs. A new Beck album of sorts, Song Reader, recently dropped in December 2012. The package features 20 songs — never before recorded or released — as sheet music only. My houseful […]

I Dream of Chicken Cakes

I have no idea when I may have first had chicken cakes. All I know is that, just like their crabby cousins, one bite was enough to sell me. For years my favorite brunch item was the Zippy Cake (image above) served by a local restaurant — a delicious meal made up of a crispy […]

One Pot Meals: Chicken Corn Chili

One pot meals. Yeah! What? Where’s your enthusiasm? All right, so you could accuse me of being lazy. That’s fine. Point your bony finger in my direction. Sometimes saving time is a lifesaver. I’m a busy girl. A gal on the go. That shouldn’t be shocking to you. So. Here we are. With a gorgeous […]

Does Meat on a Stick Taste Better?

If you put pretty much anything on a stick that infinitely increases its awesome, yes? And even if the answer is no, summer time = grilling time, so putting food on a stick and that stick onto the grill can’t be a recipe for total disaster… I’m not always creative in the kitchen. There. I […]

A Mexican Favorite With An Italian Touch

John Trujillo taught me how to make fajitas over a bar counter. I never set foot in the kitchen of the restaurant he owned for 20+ years but I spent a lot of time sitting at the bar. His daughter was a good friend of mine in high school–still is–and so many afternoons were spent […]

Leah’s Kidnapping -or- A Southern Vegan Treat

Dear readers, it is my painful duty to inform you that the recent silence from your beloved Bad Habits is because our dear Leah has been kidnapped. It seems her fears of the Vegan Police weren’t just paranoia or a plea for attention. As I type, she is being forced to eat tempeh bacon while […]

Chili To Feed The Masses (Or Just You!)

Mmm, chili. I know football season–classic chili time–is over, but screw the seasons. You should eat chili any time you want. Because it’s delicious. (Sorry, I’ve been watching a lot of Parks & Recreation lately so I may be channeling a little Ron Swanson there). So delicious in fact, that when the BF and I […]

Tempeh Time!

Tempeh. The word itself even sounds a little weird, I realize. But it actually tastes good, and that is what’s important. And is full of protein. And easy to cook. And I needed tasty, protein-packed, simplicity after my workout. I was beat. This getting in shape business is hard. Stir fry is an easy way […]

Soup To Satisfy A Pho-natic!

So the BF got me a Flip video camera for Christmas and I’ve been experimenting with it [Read: Figuring out how it works]. Thus far I haven’t made a video that could be posted without editing (shockingly, not many meals can be cooked and filmed in under 5 minutes to fit the YouTube standard) and […]

Spice Up Your Life

Note to self: Self, when friends say they are sick, find out what kind of sick. End note. Telling me “I’m sick,” is like telling me “I haven’t eaten in years, please help.” (I will feed you. Like it’s my job. Because it sort of is. At least that’s what I tell myself.) So when […]
