Strawberry Panini with Arugula and Goat Cheese

Strawberry Panini with Arugula and Goat Cheese

I absolutely adore the strawberry + goat cheese combination. Sweet, juicy, in-season strawberries meet a creamy, tangy goat cheese. It’s a combination that knows no limits: appetizers, sandwiches, and even dessert. Toss those strawberries with a good balsamic vinegar and peppery arugula, and pile it on some crusty French bread? There’s a perfect balance, a [...]

Pineapple Margaritas

Pineapple Margarita

When we were dating, we took our first “together” trip together to Keystone, Colorado. My future husband (I was pretty certain that I had it in the bag by then) grew up skiing. Me? I grew up in Texas. In a classic – and somewhat predictable – display of grace and coordination, I ended up [...]

Frozen Mango Margarita

Frozen Mango Margaritas

Oh, hi! And happy Monday-Before-Cinco-de-Mayo! You’ve probably been able to infer… but I’m not really much of a frozen margarita girl, I’d much rather have my favorite cocktail poured over ice. But we love trying out new margarita flavors and there are just some fruits that just make a better frozen drink. Like the Mango [...]

Guava Margaritas. The Guavarita!

Guava Margaritas

In my pre-Foodie Bride days, my roommate and I shared an apartment in “No Man’s Land.” It was almost downtown, but not quite. It was also not a part of the 5 other well-known, nearby areas. But it was pouring distance from The Satellite Lounge (RIP), across the street from the original Star Pizza, and [...]

Roasted Strawberry Crostini with Basil and Goat Cheese

Roasted Strawberry Crostini with basil and Goat Cheese

I absolutely fell in love with the idea of roasting strawberries with basil long before I even took the first bite. Because after 30 minutes in the oven, my kitchen smelled amazing. My mother-in-law once served us cheesecake drizzled with basil syrup for dessert. Back then, the idea of basil going anywhere near something that [...]

Strawberry Scones

Strawberry Scones

I try to steal away an hour or so of each weekend to make breakfast ahead of time for most of the upcoming week. Muffins, waffle batter, scones, kolache… something to make our early week rush a little more efficient. Something we can grab with one hand as we’re locking the door and rushing out [...]

Strawberry Muffins

Fresh Strawberry Muffins

The first signs of spring hit southeast Texas nearly two months ago. We swam (with a leeeettle help from the pool heater), we started putting in this year’s spring garden plants, and we hit up a nearby farm to pick strawberries. 14 pounds of strawberries. And I was leaving for a California trip in less [...]

Spring in Texas: Froberg’s Strawberry Farm

How to Wash and Store Fresh Strawberries

A few weeks ago, we headed down to a local farm, Froberg’s, to pick strawberries for the second year in a row. It’s a great opportunity to let the little one run around, pick strawberries, and pull out the camera. We’re also big fans of the Jalapeno & Cheese Venison Sausage [swoon] from their smokehouse [...]
