Persimmon Jalapeño Chutney ~ It can be the most wonderful time of the year if you let it OR it can be so crazy you feel like you are running around like a chicken with its head cut off. That is why I like to always try to have at least one thing that’s easy […]

Steak + Egg Tacos ~ To say we eat a lot of tacos feels like an understatement but we do eat a LOT of tacos. Most of the time it happens on Taco Tuesday but not always. There are sprinkles of breakfast tacos throughout the week and on-the-go tacos throughout the month. My youngest kiddo […]

Grilled Oysters with Jalapeño Mignonette ~ I love oysters. Years ago, when we lived in Vancouver, Canada, these were a mealtime staple –– fresh from the ocean, shucked and devoured by the dozen.

Turkey Tortilla Soup ~ There’s a reason why it’s called soup season. The cold(-ish) weather makes one want to cozy up by the fire with a good book, a hot toddy and a hearty bowl of soup. Over the last week I have really discovered what the true meaning of soup season is, or perhaps […]

During my childhood I was very fortunate to end up with 5 sets of grandparents. Each one of them had a role in my upbringing and in my love for food and for that, I am forever thankful. Two of my grandmothers had lived on farms at one point during my younger years and after […]

One of the great things about living in Texas is the variety of local produce that we have access too. I get excited to see the first juicy strawberries of the season or the mix of greens that are available (I know, I know … food geek!) but I think the thing that I get […]
