Veal Quesadillas + Sour Cream Bearnaise

Veal Quesadillas + Sour Cream Bearnaise | So we spent most of our youth running around the streets of Austin. It was fun.

Vivi’s Queen Crab Dip

Vivi’s Queen Crab Dip | So I got this friend named Pat in Chicago, who is a masterchef. He’d never admit it but he really is that good. But my favorite recipe that I stole from Pat, turns out to not be his at all. But rather his mom’s! She serves this dip at dinner party’s, and let me tell you, it’s bleapin’ ridiculous. Ridiculously good.

So to thank Pat for naively revealing his family secrets, we are naming this dip after his new baby girl, Vivi. It’s the very least we could do. Thanks bud.
