Texas Olive Oil & Meyer Lemon Ice Cream

Olive Oil & Meyer Lemon Ice Cream

I recently attended Texas Olive Harvest at Central Market, a cooking demonstration highlighting olive oils from the Texas Olive Ranch, the only olive oil producer in Texas that puts out 100% Texas-grown olive oil. We’ve been using their olive oil for a couple of months and love it. Texas has thrown its hat into the [...]

Artichoke Lemon & Chicken Pasta

Creamy Lemon Artichoke Pasta

This dish from So Tasty So Yummy is one of our new favorite discoveries. It has all the goodies: chicken, bacon, pasta, artichokes, lemon, and just a little cream. It’s hearty enough to be a one-bowl meal… but you’re gonna make a veggie or side salad because it is still January I made it right [...]

It can be tough to find a healthy side at the many holiday dinners that we attend. Over the last couple of years, I’ve made it a sort of tradition to show up with the one healthy side that almost no one else wants to eat. There is always broccoli… baked in a vat of [...]

Watermelon Lemonade

Ashley of Delish chose this week’s Project Pastry Queen recipe: Watermelon Lemonade. This recipe is the perfect example of why baking projects like Project Pastry Queen are so fun – I wouldn’t have ever made this recipe on my own. When it gets hot, my beverage of choice is usually an ice cold beer or [...]

Not so crazy about lemons if they don’t come in the form of lemonade. He’s somewhat forgiving if they’re in dessert form but in savory dishes? [...]

Lemony Penne with Chicken and Arugula

What’s for dinner? We’re having Penne [knock knock knock] Penne [knock knock knock] Penne [knock knock knock] Yep, I thought it was *so* clever when I did that I love Sheldon.

Blackberry-Lemon Buttermilk Cake

Blackberry-Lemon Buttermilk Cake

About a year ago, I flipped passed a recipe for Raspberry Buttermilk Cake in Gourmet. It wasn’t really my kind of cake. 1 layer? No frosting? No thanks. And then I found myself with a mountain of blackberries and few new ideas so I gave the cake a chance. I love the simplicity of this [...]

Couscous with Chicken, Lemon, and Peas

Chicken with Peas and Couscous

Quick. Easy. Light. Yummy. It makes me very happy when I can use all those words describe one single recipe. This is probably one of my favorite new recipe finds from last month’s Everyday Food. It tastes like spring in a bowl – the lemon, peas, and chicken are simple and fresh – and it [...]
