Texas Pesto ~ Sometimes it’s fun to take a classic and add your own pizzazz to it. You know … switch it up a bit. This go-around I added some Texas flare to a simple pesto recipe to give it a little more kick but not too much I want to the kiddos to be […]

BLT Bánh Mì Sandwich ~ For what seemed to be like eternity my boys were only into simple sandwiches. You know the usual kids stuff; peanut butter and jelly, grilled cheese, or turkey and cheese, but with age and maturing palates we are entering a much more interesting time in our sammie world.

Strawberry Mo-Daiquiri ~ Sometimes we get in our own way –– we forget to slow down and we forget about all of the good things around us. The month of March in Texas is always a good reminder for us to do just that. The bluebonnets are popping out along the highways, the sun is […]

Quinoa Caprese Salad~ I have had a long love affair with the Caprese salad. It’s not a complicated salad, in fact, I think it’s the simplicity that makes it so gosh darn delicious. Perfectly ripe, fresh summer tomatoes combined with tender mozzarella cheese and bright basil is an amazing combination. Pair that flavor combination up with […]

Over the years I’ve adapted the traditional salad into everything from a Strawberry Caprese to a Grilled Tomato “Sandwich” with Texas Pesto and beyond. Maybe […]

Prosciutto Wrapped Peaches with Honey Basil Sauce ~ I *think* at this point the term heatwave is an understatement. With records being broken daily and 70+ days of over 100 degree temperatures who wants to consider being in a blazing kitchen or even dream about turning on the oven? Slated to go to a party on […]

Zucchini, Yellow Squash, Tomato + Basil Crêpes

by evh September 15, 2010

Growing up, my mom would often make crêpes for dinner as a “special treat” when my dad would be out of town. She would make simple, plain crêpes and let us fill them with whatever we wanted; peanut butter, jam, cinnamon, cheese, fruit, lemon or whatever was on hand. This was my first exposure to […]
