Darla and Rose

Darla Magee-Price spent many, many years in a hot yoga room helping people change their lives. Determined to be the best, “Sweaty Darla” sought out and was certified by the world’s finest and most challenging training programs for teaching yoga “in the heat”. After a few too many shoulder injuries and the great good fortune of receiving a full set of All Clad cookware for Christmas in 2010, she realized it was time to get out of the heat -and into the kitchen.  Now, motivated by biscuits and instant gratification Darla Cooks! Currently a student at The Culinary Institute of America, Darla takes her love of the kitchen to the highest level possible by attending the world’s most respected school of culinary arts. This blog is a chronicle of these new adventures.

Darla currently lives in San Antonio, Texas while attending school. She is married to Michael Price and hopelessly in love. They walk the path together with their dogs, and 4000 books.

    Ah ha! You’re in TX too! I’m in Austin/Round Rock. Where did you find Meyer lemons?

    • March 5, 2012 5:20 pm

      Central Market! Or Whole Foods or H.E.B.
      TX! Kinda makes you sit up a little straighter doesn’t it? TX!
      BTW, i bet you’l find local meyers. they grow all over houston and this part of TX.
      please be sure to tell me if you make them!

    I cant cook to save my life! But after stumbling across your site, I just might change my mind! :)

    • April 26, 2012 6:33 am

      i just came across your- and a few other comments that i did not respond to. i am sorry, the frenzy of “freshly pressed” last month was overwhelming! so…. are you cooking?

      • April 26, 2012 1:10 pm

        fantastic!!

    The Meyer Lemon Muffins got my attention! I have to be on a gluten-free diet, but I will swap out the regular flour for King Arthur’s Gluten-free blend and let you know how they turn out. Nice looking page.

    Cheers!

    • April 26, 2012 6:34 am

      hey bob, there were a few comments that i did not resound to during the crazy freshly pressed frenzy, i am so sorry. did you try the muffins as gluten free? i would love to know, i get many gluten free questions. ;-)

  8. March 6, 2012 9:18 am

    you seem to have a real sweet tooth!

    Nice site :)

    • March 6, 2012 9:22 am

      thanks! i do like my sweets, but sweets are sexier to look at than… say… the pork roast and apples i made for dinner sunday. deelish, but not very pretty in photos.
      (okay okay. i DO love sweets. ;-) )

      • March 6, 2012 9:24 am

        hmm I would argue that could be pretty sexy too! Can you please send me the recipe!?

      • March 6, 2012 9:34 am

        that’s the crazy thing. i did not use a recipe and had no idea what i was doing. a 3 pound bone in pork shoulder roast- rub with salt and pepper place in a brasier. i added 4 granny smith apples that had been cored. 1/4 cup of braggs apple cider vinegar and 1/4 water. cooked it covered at 350 for a few hours then down to 250 for a few more. it was AMAZING. i had no clue it would be. i made potatoes with butter and parsley-added a salad to the table and viola! dinner!

      • March 6, 2012 12:49 pm

        Going to try this next week for sure. I’ll let you know how it goes. Do you put in in foil?

        I’m so hungry now… damn

      • March 6, 2012 12:59 pm

        no, i put it in a covered brasier. if you don’t have an oven proof pot you could just cover it tightly with foil. i look forward to hearing about it!

    Gorgeous blog, Darla! And I have a tree groaning with not quite ripe Meyer Lemons just outside my kitchen door. I also have a fabulous lemon curd recipe. Let me know if you’d like it. Am happy to share.

    I’ll be buying some Bangalow Pork today to try baking it your way. Sounds delish!
    Much love to you from Down Under :)

    • March 6, 2012 1:21 pm

      thanks for your kind words! wow! I’ll bet it’s wonderful having fresh meyers right out your back door- what a treat! and yes please! i would love your lemon curd recipe. i have only made it once but it was easy! and sooo delicious! poo… i have a question for you! do you preserve your curd? or do you only make it for fresh use- or the fridge? i think it would make wonderful christmas gifts! thanks for stopping by. ;-)

      • March 9, 2012 12:48 am

        My curd never lasts that long, because, well… we eat it all, but I think with the eggs and butter it wouldn’t be a forever thing anyway. And I keep it in the fridge too, but that’s a no-brainer in Australia.

        Here’s the recipe: 4 organic eggs, 3/4 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup lemon juice, 2 teaspoons lemon zest, 125grams unsalted butter – chopped. Place eggs and sugar in top of double boiler and whisk til sugar dissolves. Add all other ingredients. Whisk until thick. Bottle and seal hot. Store in fridge.

        I hope you enjoy it! I am cooking pork your way tonight. I’m sure it will be fab. ♥

      • March 9, 2012 8:56 am

        thanks for the recipe! i will definitely try this. good luck with the pig!
