Since I’ve moved to the south, I’ve been schooled about the fabulous hatch chiles. I love walking into all the grocery stores to the smell of roasting hatch chiles. Before I moved to Texas, I was totally deprived of this deliciousness. We are lucky to stock up on the through […]
This refreshing blueberry and watermelon smoothie lets the delightful sweetness of ripe blueberries take center stage, but also letting the refreshing coolness of the watermelon peek through. Great smoothie for a hot summer day!
There are no bounds to the foods that I will cook on the grill. I love the smoky flavor that the grill gives food and I avoid using my stove or oven in the summer. This pasta dish is really easy and scrumptious.

I absolutely love a good pesto. Most often, pesto is made with basil but it totally doesn’t have to be the star. The broccoli took the leading role in this dish. I paired it with some feta that I bought at the farmers market and a little lemon juice kept […]
