Tequila-Lime Chicken Fajitas

Tequila Lime Chicken Fajitas

It’s grilling season. Kind of. And by kind of, I mean there are currently icicles hanging off the new grill. The new grill I bought specifically to make these fajitas. Of course there are icicles. Because this is Texas and Spring Break is 3 days away and the Bluebonnets and Paints are already peeking out [...]

Blood Orange, Spinach, and Quinoa Salad

Blood Orange, Spinach, and Quinoa Salad

How excited am I that blood oranges are back? That excited ^. Also? This excited: Last spring, we planted a tiny blood orange tree in the backyard. And somehow it survived. We won’t let any blooms go to fruit this year but next year, man. Next year. Besides margaritas, one of my other favorite things [...]

Margarita-Glazed Fish Tacos

Margarita-glazed Fish Tacos

I get the best dinner ideas when I don’t have the ability to write them down. Like sitting at dinner with a fork in my hand. Or pushing The Little through HEB in one of those soul-killing plastic car-cart monstrosities. Or playing Candy Crush Then 2 nights later, I’m looking at a random collection of [...]

Tangelo Margaritas

Tangelo Margarita

It’s probably no surprise to any of you, but when I see a new fruit come in season – or priced low enough that I can’t resist hoarding – the first thing that comes to my mind is: I have tequila at home, right? Because, really now – what fruit doesn’t make a good margarita? [...]

Grilled Tilapia with Orange-Avocado Salsa

Hi. It’s me again. And I’m back with math. Delicious math. Dinner = grilled protein + citrus/avocado salsa. The markets here are flooded with beautiful Texas citrus – 5 oranges for $1? An 8 lb bag for just under $5? Don’t mind if I do! We took a few of those Texas oranges, paired them [...]

Tangerine Margaritas

Tangerine Margarita

I’m totally loving reading all your responses to the giveaway questions – and watched Elf tonight because of it – but I can’t respond in-line because then I throw off the comment numbering system and then the random generator thingy might just stab me. And then there’s no one here to unload the diswasher. Tragedy. [...]

The Skinny Margarita

Skinnier Margarita

It’s Friday! And we’re feeling even more celebratory than usual because this morning I got dressed and then immediately took my jeans off. Without unbuttoning them. Over the last few months, I’ve been “running,” which is code for “mostly walking between weeks-long hamstring problems” and keeping an eye on calories in vs calories out. Such [...]
