Sausage Flight

A fancy way to eat a simple dinner I’m never not in the mood for sausage. It’s a running joke in my family! My mom will call me and ask if I want to come over for dinner and I’ll say, “Oh thanks, but-” and she’ll mention it’s sausage and I tell her I’m on…

Käsespätzle

A cheesy German noodle casserole that’s quite possibly the best dish I’ve ever made Käsespätzle is hands down my favorite German dish of all time. I know that’s a strong statement, but it’s true. I’m half German and adore German food. I used to eat Käsespätzle at my beloved Greenwoods in Fort Worth every week when I…

Persian Chicken

Spiced chicken glazed with honey If you’re looking for an easy chicken recipe that tastes fancy, you’ve come to the right place. My Persian Chicken is spiced with tumeric, paprika, garlic powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg and drizzled with local honey for the last few minutes of cooking. It tastes so elegant but is easy enough…

Fall Dinner at the Farm

A make-ahead fall menu served next to my horses Happily ever after starts now. It has long been my dream to host dinner parties with my horses and my Friesian mare Wendy was 110% into it. Her cute little head was peering out of her window almost the entire evening! It was so fun for…

Chilled Butternut Squash Salad with Crispy Sage

Fall flavors that travel well for outdoor dining! It was 90 degrees when I hosted my Fall Dinner at the Farm and I was so, so glad that I chose a chilled menu to serve outside. Texans and Southerns alike know the struggle of wanting fall when it’s still blazing hot outside. This is a great…

Crockpot Bacon Mac ‘n’ Cheese

Creamy mac ‘n’ cheese with just five minutes of prep! If you’re looking for a super simple, hands-off mac ‘n’ cheese recipe, this is it. It’s quite possibly the creamiest mac ‘n’ cheese you’ll ever have. In Texas, you most often see baked mac ‘n’ cheese with a crunchy bread crumb topping. Since I was…

Sliders

Sweet Hawaiian rolls are the perfect complement to a juicy slider I don’t know why on earth everyone these days makes meatloaf when they’re trying to make burgers. Please help me spread the word: you do not need eggs and bread crumbs in burgers. That is just a burger-shaped meatloaf. All you need for a great burger…

Prosciutto Cantaloupe Burrata Salad

To quote one of my all time favorite movies: it’s the simple things in life you treasure. This salad is just a few ingredients but they marry so well together, you’ll wonder how you’ll ever eat cantaloupe without prosciutto and burrata again. If you’ve never eaten burrata, you’re in for a treat. It’s technically comparable…

Grilled Potatoes

One of my all-time favorite side dishes! I can’t even count how many times I’ve grilled potatoes. Hundreds? Thousands, even? It’s one of my go-to side dishes when I’m grilling. It’s so easy, I don’t even think twice when I’m doing it. This is one of my many non-recipe recipes in which I don’t include…

Lamb Lollipops

These delightful lamb lollipops take just 15 minutes! I adore lamb. I wish more Americans did. Greece knows what it’s doing with lamb and I paid close attention at the Greek Food Festival in Dallas last year where I ate the most incredible lamb lollipops. I asked the guys what they did and they said,…
