Maple Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Fall Veggies

I know that fall doesn’t officially start until September 22nd but y’all, I. am. ready. This year’s Texas summer has seemed especially restricting with all the COVID related closures of indoor activities. I am ready for some cooler weather and safe outdoor fun, especially for the kids. And most importantly, […]

Green Chili Chicken Chili

Try saying that 5 times fast! I have to tell you I have been making a version of this Green Chili Chicken Chili (or White Chicken Chili) for YEARS and up until now, much to the chagrin of friends of family, have never thought to actually write down the recipe. […]

Seared Salmon with Parsley Sauce

If you have never had parsley sauce you are not alone. A traditional English sauce, it seems to have not quite made the journey over to us in the States which is a real shame because it a truly delicious condiment. I first had it when my British mother-in-law served […]
