Earlier this year, Susan and I traveled just outside of Houston Texas to book a new location for our food conference MIXED.
Despite being named after the beautiful Italian city of Florence, these cookies (sometimes referred to as biscuits) did not originate from Italy.
I’m going to go ahead and tell you straight away that I am OBSESSED with this pasta dish. It’s pretty much brilliance on a plate.
When it comes to frosting I am of the opinion that buttercream is best. There I said it and I’m sticking to it.
I have an obsession love affair with seafood. In my dream world I would live in a small cottage on the beach, wear maxi skirts, tank tops with flip flops and eat seafood ‘evry day.
You all know how much I adore panna cotta (just do a quick search with the words panna cotta in the search box above and you’ll find a plethora of flavors).

While this may look like mayonnaise, Aioli isn’t mayonnaise. What’s the difference you ask? Mayonnaise is basically an emulsion of bland neutral flavored oils (think canola), egg yolks, vinegar and/or lemon juice.
These are pretty much my version of homemade Shake and Bake pork chops in grown up form. I would seriously get excited for shake and bake night growing up.
I have a lot of little quirks with food. For instance, I’m not a fan of cucumbers (I will totally pick them out if they’re in let’s say a salad) but I’m all about the PICKLES.
Sometimes a girl just wants a big fat juicy burger. One that doesn’t require fourteen napkins or a bib around my neck would also be nice.
Sweet. Spicy. Tart. No need to pick one, nope. You’re going to get all of that in every spoonful. If you like mangoes you’re going to love this supped up mango ice cream.
Oh Shishito! I first had a taste of these babies in Austin a few years back at a seriously swoon worthy restaurant called Swift’s Attic.
I’m sad to report that my garden tomato plants aren’t doing so hot this year. I think all the rain we’ve had is the culprit.

I’ve always been one to love a good challenge. Heck, coming up with dinner every night can be a challenge.
It just so happens to be my birthday week! Yes I celebrate all week long, doesn’t everyone? My actual birthday isn’t until this weekend where I’ll be celebrating all things birthday cake as well as Independence.
Heroes. Everyone has one (if not more than one). They could be a neighbor, a police officer, a fireman, military personnel, your Grandma, your dog.
It’s no surprise to anyone who knows me that I dig pizza. I like it hot or cold (I blame college for my love cold pizza, but some habits die hard and cold pizza still works for me).
Summer is hard work for a parent y’all (please tell me I’m not the only one). We’re week 1 (O-N-E) into our summer vacation and I’m already hearing “I’M BORED” “WHAT CAN WE DO?
