Welcome to Bites ‘n Brews!

Sorry guys, I got impatient. Right after I’d asked for help, I decided I just wanted to give it a go and start my own website. I’m still playing around with templates and need a custom header and need to figure out EVERYTHING else (including how to change the font and spacing).

I did promise you a recipe though, and THAT I can figure out myself, even with this crazy new format.


3/4 -1lb boneless chicken breast
1 boullion cube
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 cup mushrooms, roughly chopped
4 oz diced green chiles
16 oz sour cream
2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
7-8 raw tortillas
a boatload of cheddar cheese

1. In a large pot, boil chicken breast with 4-6 quarts of water and a boullion cube until cooked through.
2. While the chicken cooks, heat the olive in another large pot, then add onions and mushrooms and saute until onions are softened and translucent (about 6 minutes).
3. Once the chicken is cooked through, drain and shred the meat.
4. Add the chicken, green chilies, chili powder, salt, and garlic powder to the onions and mushrooms and stir well, then remove from heat.
5. Stir in about 3/4 cup sour cream and mix well.
6. Heat an ungreased pan over medium and cook the tortillas 30-45 seconds on each side.

I used Tortilla Land raw flour tortillas – easy to find in Albertson’s. It’s all right if they aren’t cooked through all the way.
It’s hard to ruin them – they taste good no matter what, even burned!
7. Scoop about 1/4-1/3 cup of sour cream and chicken mixture into the tortillas, roll them and lay them in a 13×9 inch pan that you’ve covered with 1/3 cup of sour cream.
… and rolled!
Continue until all the tortillas are filled.
8. Cover the tortillas with the rest of the sour cream and copious amounts of cheese.
9. Bake at 350 degrees until the cheese is melted and bubbly (about 20 minutes).
10.  Warn your arteries about what’s to come, and DEVOUR!

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas!

Wow, that was incredibly difficult to write. I don’t like change, but I’m definitely learning and OPEN TO SUGGESTIONS! Also, get ready for my first VIDEO post tomorrey!
Aaaaaaaah, I’m overwhelmed!!!

OBESE Tuesday!

     Today marks Fat Tuesday, aka “Mardi Gras” aka “eat-everything-you-can-fit-into-your-body-until-you-burst”, aka “New-Years-Eve”. Personally, I like to call it “OBESE Tuesday”.

I make it count!

     Call it whatever you want – to me it means the last day of imbibing in rich foods that I am about to give up for Lent as a small sacrifice for Jesus and the suffering He endured, resulting in His death and following resurrection, in order to give me eternal life with God. 

Guys, this is serious. I’m giving up…
Please note, I did not say caffeine. Green teas and black teas and “please-Lord-force-my-eyes-open-this-morning” teas are all open-season!
I know you’ve heard this before, but since Lent is a little more important to me than the superficial quality of my skin, this will last.
Remembrance of His suffering, PLUS clear skin.
Blessed on all counts.

     In order to really appreciate what I’m about to give up, I overdosed on all the above.

Of course that had to include Indian buffet…
Including a dairy-stuffed mango lassi!
     The day was spent shopping. If you know me, this is something I NEVER do! I went on a frikkin’ SPREE today! My last paycheck was incinerated by my credit card. I now have jeans that don’t have holes in the rear, and aren’t shredding at the pockets! I also got some incredible sunglasses – they’re ridiculously lame and adorable and reminiscent of six-year-old Becki (aka Becky-boo).
The “Dos Beckis” is reminiscent of current-day Becki, not six-year-old Becky-boo.
I also consumed my weight in Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas – recipe coming tomorrow, in case you’ve give up dairy and want to cry whilst looking at beautiful, milky (ewww) pictures.
     Guess what! I have a question (or twenty) that I’m hoping you can help me with. I’m prepping to start my own website and need advice from all ends. 
1. I have no smarts when it comes to technology. Which web host should I choose? I’ve been recommended WebHostingHub and told that it’s great for people who are technologically challenged.
2. Once I get a host, I have no idea what to do. I don’t know HTML, XML or any of the in-between. All I really want as of now is a blog that’s not run under Blogger or WordPress. Any recommended templates I should check out? Or anyone willing to design one for credit?  
3. I don’t know what else to ask about this – that’s how little I know about the process.
