Chicken Tortilla Soup

You know those blogs where everything is perfectly staged and every day is a photoshoot but when you actually read the recipe, it’s just how to make store bought hot chocolate? This is not that kind of website. What I lack in photography skills, I make up for with awesome from scratch recipes. Like this…

If there is one restaurant all of my friends want to visit, it’s Standard Service. Located in my darling small town of Rockwall, Texas about twenty minutes east of Dallas, Standard Service has fantastic farm-to-table cuisine, cocktails that support local charities, and a breezy patio with a fire pit, strung lights, and corn hole.

White Christmas at Bass Performance Hall

“Watson’s back in town.” I had goosebumps when that line was sung during Irving Berlin’s White Christmas at Bass Performance Hall. Watson was indeed back in Fort Worth for a magical holiday show at my beloved Bass Performance Hall. Bass Hall is a sight for sore eyes at Christmas time and could fill even the biggest…

Christmas at Dallas Arboretum

Garden Update: November 2017

It’s finally time for another Queen of Hearts update! It’s been a while since I posted about my garden. It’s mid-November and though the trees have lost their leaves, I’m delighted to tell you that the roses are still going strong. It’s hard to believe they’re just six months old! I can’t even wait to…

Pumpkin Oreo Pie with Cinnamon Whipped Cream

I have a confession, one we’ve never discussed before. I don’t really care for pie. I’ve met plenty of pies that I like but it’s not my favorite. I’ll take cake any day of the week over a slice of pie. My problem is the crust. Everyone talks about how to get a flaky crust…

On Saturday carriages compete in dressage and a cones course. I love setting up a picnic and watching…

New Portraits

I recently had new portraits taken for my website by Emily Trupiano, a.k.a. TruPhoto TX. I thought you might like to see a glimpse into my every day life: coffee under the trees, dinner in the courtyard, wine by the fire pit, and sunset with my horses. I swapped out a nook with a worn…

Serendipity Style Turkey & Brie Sandwich

I’ve said before that there are meals worth getting on a plane for. Lunch at Serendipity 3 NYC is one of them! It’s been years since I’ve had the pleasure of visiting New York City and eating an epic open-faced sandwich at Serendipity but it remains one of the best lunches of my life. We…
