Bacon Cantaloupe Soup

Here me out… This is for all the chilled soup lovers out there! I live on chilled soups in August. After all, I live in Texas! It’s 100 degrees outside and I refuse to turn on my oven when it’s that hot. My favorite chilled soups are Chilled Cucumber Soup, Chilled Cantaloupe Soup, and Gazpacho….

The World’s Best Alfredo Sauce

I know this is a strong statement but this is the best alfredo sauce in the world. The secret ingredient? Gruyere cheese. Gruyere takes a little longer to melt than parmesan but it’s worth the patience. Gruyere adds a nutty flavor and ultra creamy, luscious texture to this sauce. I think we can all agree…

I was ill-prepared for how much I would love St. George, Utah. I spent three nights at Inn at Entrada with my friend Morgan on a girls’ trip and we could not have loved the Greater Zion area more!

Tuacahn Amphitheatre

Broadway in the Desert and outdoor theatre at its finest I was ill-prepared for the magic that is Tuacahn Amphitheatre. I hesitated even writing this article because I worried that I would gush too much but the fact is, I’m dying to gush about Tuacahn. This unparalleled theatre company is doing things I’ve never seen…

Looking for an easy slow cooker chicken recipe that’s fancy enough for company? You’ve found it! Let me start by saying: I am not a big slow cooker person, but I vowed to use my slow cooker more this summer, when I don’t want to stand outside and grill nor heat up my house with…

Pioneer Park

St. George in the Greater Zion area has so many hiking options to offer between Zion National Park and Snow Canyon but today I want to highlight Pioneer Park. I had a bad accident five years ago and have a weak leg as a result so sadly, I can’t hike like I used to. I…

Vanilla No-Bake Cheesecake

In the heat of summer, I rarely turn on my oven. I get it from my mother, who cooks very seasonally. I thought everyone cooked this way but I was wrong. It never ceases to amaze me how many Texans will roast a chicken in the dead of summer. Not me! I live in Dallas…

I want to be one of those food blogger who plans out photo shoots but I’m not. I made this heavenly latte this morning, snapped a couple of pics in the garden, and came straight in to write up the recipe for you! I’ve been having such a lavender moment. Once you invest $10 in…
