Grilled Zucchini & Red Onion with Lemon-Basil Vinaigrette

Our garden continues to crank out zucchini like there’s no tomorrow. Luckily, “we” like zucchini! One of our favorite sides is grilled zucchini. But not just plain grilled zucchini. Noooo. We grew tired of plain grilled zucchini very soon after our plants started producing 3 baseball-bat sized zucs a day. Grilling the zucchini caramelizes the [...]

Cilantro Tandoori Chicken Tacos

After being teased with bathing suit weather and endless fresh gulf seafood at Food Blog Camp in early January, we just couldn’t go back to heavy winter foods. So for the last couple of months, we’ve been eating like it was 80 degrees outside, even if it was only 35. I’ve lost count of the [...]

Chicken Satay with Yogurt Dipping Sauce

Texas “winter” (and I use the term loosely) can be… unpredictable. 8 days ago, there were icicles hanging from our cars, a handful of identifiable snow flurries (CLOSE THE SCHOOLS!!!), and our potted citrus trees were in the garage.
