What I’ve Been Cooking Lately

What I’ve Been Cooking Lately

Though I haven’t spent a lot of time making up my own recipes lately, I have been taking the time to cook some recipes from others! I am fortunate enough to have a lot of nice cookbooks, and sometimes I forget to cook from them […]

Lemon and Green Herb Chicken

Lemon and Green Herb Chicken

 I made a new seasoning blend yesterday afternoon, Green Herb Seasoning, and I couldn’t wait to try it out in a recipe. I had just gotten some chicken tenderloins at the market that morning, so I made a flavorful marinade with my herb mix. I […]

Roasted Chicken and Mushrooms with Rosemary and Lemon

Roasted Chicken and Mushrooms with Rosemary and Lemon

Even in West Texas, the chill of fall is starting to creep in the air…at least until midday. It’s time for roasted foods again, and I could not be more happy. I have always loved fall, and I think it’s mainly due to pot roasts, […]

Fresh Strawberry Lemonade

Fresh Strawberry Lemonade

I know the old quote goes “when life hands you lemons, make lemonade.” However, life handed me lots and lots of strawberries…organic strawberries from a local farm. When you’ve got an ingredient in abundance, you might as well experiment with some new recipes, so I […]

Honey-Lemon-Rosemary Chicken

Honey-Lemon-Rosemary Chicken

Chicken breast is a great way to get lean protein in your diet. The problem is, it can become boring so quickly! Not only that, a plain old chicken breast can look so bland and pallid on your plate…it’s enough to make me lose my […]

Real French Onion Dip for the Superbowl

Real French Onion Dip for the Superbowl

Today is the Superbowl, so I’m going to a watch the game with my friends. To be honest, I don’t understand football at all. I’ve had so many people try to explain it to me, but I just don’t get it. Actually, the reason I’m […]
