Blogcritics Article, Quickies Update, & No More Audi

New Blogcritics article up.  Another Editor's Pick.  A big heartfelt thank you to my editor Caitlin Pike.  I do not want to seem flippant about receiving the honor of being tagged Editor's Pick by her.  I work hard to produce decent articles and to be recognized...truly makes my day every time it happens.

Here's the link.  Check it out if you are really, really, really bored.

Respect Food: Respect Life

This is the dish I highlighted in the article.  It is cod, cod, and more cod.

1. Cod in the broth
2. Cod in the ravioli
3. Pan-roasted Cod on top.
4. Cod in the edible flowers...no just kidding...although wouldn't that be great?!



After 1 week of the Quickies: Morning, Noon, and Night Challenge we have 3 fantastic dishes in the clubhouse.  There is plenty of time left, so please join in the merriment with us.  Check out Denise's blog, Quickies on the Dinner Table she is keeping a running talley of who is in and the days left.

On to an issue of paramount importance in the Lazaro Cooks! household.  Due to my inclusion of him in a blog post, Audi's head no longer fits inside the apartment.  His vanity is really annoying.  It's all Audi...all the time!  Don't believe me?  Let's go the evidence shall we.

1. 8 Months ago he was a kitten in a parking lot, today he has a facebook account. Crazy Boy Named Audi.  Please do not friend request him, it will only make things worse.

2. He's trying to cut into my blogging time.  I guess Audi really doesn't like Food Buzz, as you can see in the background...



3. He is convinced the couch belongs to him.  I mean, who sleeps like that?!


Exhibit 1

What do you say to that?!

4. Newbie up top is the smart one, but poor Bailey!  She is just trying to sleep too dude.



5. However, do not feel too badly for Bailey.  The wifey loves her more than she does me.



That's it for now...till we exchange a few words again...Peace!

  8. Hey Laz - CONGRATS!! I think I'm gonna be saying that a whole lot on your blog! The BC editors obviously know a good thing when they see it!

    Audi has a very healthy ego LOL And no fears - I won't be sending any friend requests his way ;)

  9. Hi, love this post. Love, love the photos of the kittys (I call all cats "kittys", like our kittys.
    That was funny when you said "do not friend request Audi in facebook, you'll make it worst." Well, actually I just add friend request him. You have a lovely family. Again, thank you for sharing.

  17. Yeah you need to be careful with those cats...you mention them once and their head blows up to the size of Jupiter. It's unfortunate.

    They are so adorable!

  18. Lazaro, congratulations on being chosen Editor's Pick. That's fabulous, but well deserved I might add. Audi is adorable. He makes me miss my kitties. Your cod dish is gorgeous. I've been trying to figure out if that's a camellia flower on it. I blew it up, but it looked too small to be a camellia. Anyway, it is lovely.

  19. Yes, animals do have a tendency to take over. My dog is totally unaware that she doesn't run the household. Actually maybe she does . . .

  20. Ah Audi is so cute. One of ours consistently is able to get into a similar position on top of the couch cushion, but his hind legs sprawl over the edge making that part of the couch un-useable by anyone else, just the way he likes it :)

  22. I enjoyed reading your article, congrats! It was very thoughtful and I will be more mindful of our BBQ this weekend and appreciate the roots of my steak. Audi is adorable... I am a dog person myself but certainly am aware of how they take over the household! :) Cheers, Judy

  37. Hi Lazaro,
    I'm going to have to check out your BC article! Sounds intriguing.
    Also, Audi is totally ADORABLE!!! Love how he contorts his body and this is supposed to be comfortable in some sort of way. His markings are just beautiful. Can't believe he was a stray!
