Pumpkin Spice “Nice”cream

When my British husband first moved to Texas a few years ago he was a little baffled about the overwhelming obsession everyone in Texas seemed to have with the Fall season. Especially when it meant families dragging their sweater wearing toddlers to pumpkin patches for photos in 90 degree heat. […]

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, […]

Perfect Pesto

This equally delicious, albeit healthier take on the classic casserole has all of the comfort of the original with […]

Whipped Ricotta Toast

I honestly feel a bit silly for writing this up into a blog post because it is such a simple thing to make but when I posted a picture of some whipped ricotta toast that I made on instagram the other day the people went nuts for it. And for […]

The Best Tzatziki

This Taztziki sauce is one of my favorite summer condiments and it’s pretty darn good for you to boot. A combination of Greek yogurt, cucumber, fresh herbs, lemon and olive oil make this the perfect accompaniment to grilled meats, flatbreads and fresh veggies. I love serving it with my lamb […]
