Texas Caviar

I’ve never been one for fancy things, but this is my kind of caviar! Colorful and zesty, with fresh bell peppers, corn, onions and jalapenos, it’s a real favorite with our Austin friends. This one is a bit more cowboy boots than couture, and that’s...

Caprese Grilled Chicken

1

When the weather warms and fresh tomatoes are in abundance, I can’t get enough caprese. The mixture of tangy balsamic vinegar with sweet tomatoes, salty soft mozzarella, garlic and olive oil is my favorite flavor combination ever. We’re talking ever ever. And I eat a lot....

Cinnamon-Vanilla Mini French Toast with Berries

I often think about the perfect morning “in.” You know, one that makes you feel like Julie Andrews in the Sound of Music, sweeping through a meadow and singing about the glorious day because you got so much sleep. Ahhh, sleep. My old friend....

But first, a big congratulations to the winner of my Summer Grilling Giveaway – Nicole-Lynn! Thank you to all who took the time to enter and share some yummy inspiration with me. I might be a nervous flyer, and basically loathe the whole act of...

BBQ Bacon-Cheddar Chicken Burgers with Pineapple Guacamole + Summer Grilling Giveaway!

This summer has undoubtedly been a little different for us. Though we still clock in our work time on weekdays, weekends were all about staying cool in pools with frosty cocktails. Slap a good read down on my sun-toasted beach towel, and you’ve just...

Slow Cooker Balsamic Glazed Roast Beef

Can someone please scrape me up with a spatula? I think I’ve melted to the ground. Texas is toasty this time of year, and it’s got me avoiding the oven… except for the occasional batch of chocolate chip cookies (a new mama’s gotta have...

Quick & Easy Chocolate Covered S’mores Pretzels

1

When baby is in bed for the night, hubby and I like to unwind and treat ourselves. He grabs a beer (and a glass of wine for mama), and I snag the good stuff – graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate for s’mores! We head out into the hot...

Crispy Salt and Vinegar Smashed Potatoes

1

I’ve gotten back in the kitchen, and it feels so darn good. Having a baby, you take on a whole new identity – mother, protector, teacher, constant laundry-doer. This little life needs you nearly every minute of the day. And in a strange way, it’s a wonderful feeling. Exhausting...

Italian Mac and Cheese Stuffed Peppers

ItalianMacandCheeseStuffedPeppers (1)

Rejoice, rejoice! Today is National Mac and Cheese Day, y’all. Basically, today is my favorite day ever. The day our daughter came into this world is also up there. But, was she made of gooey, melty cheesy deliciousness? NO. Well… sort of. That plus rainbows....

Homemade Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

1

With all the holidays surrounding the season, winter is most foodies’ favorite time of year… and I have to agree. Hearty roasts, fluffy mashed potatoes and hot cinnamon-spiced drinks and desserts? I can’t get enough. Cold weather cooking and baking just warms up your home! But, amidst all the apple...
