Lakeside Lobster

Does dinner get more epic than this? Here’s what I love about food: I probably would not have remembered this Friday but now I always will because it’s the day my mom and I had lobster at the lake. What a special evening! My dad saw this fully cooked lobster on sale this summer and…

Cookbook Announcement

Big news, Rosies! I WROTE A COOKBOOK! It has been so incredibly difficult keeping this secret from you. For years I’ve been so touched by how many of you have messaged me asking if I have a cookbook available. I’m pretty sure I’ve read every single email to my mom because they all make my…

Celebrating Twenty Years with Prince

It was a blazing hot summer day when I first saw him. He looked so fiery: red coat, nostrils flaring as he tossed his head around, shaking his mane. He was the most beautiful thing I’d ever seen. “What horse is this? Can I ride him?” I asked. “He isn’t meant for you,” said my…

Getting to Know Kerr Cellars

Happy Wine Wednesday, Rosies! I experienced Kerr Cellars for the first time yesterday and just have to tell you about this incredible wine. Founded by golf superstar Cristie Kerr (“the best putter ever” according to my dad), Kerr Cellars is dedicated to overdelivering in quality with every sip. Cristie was first introduced to winemaking in Napa…

Sunset Cruise

If you follow me on Instagram, you are well versed with the lake life my family enjoys at my parents’ lake house in east Texas but I rarely talk about the lake here on my website. My friend Sarah came to visit me from Los Angeles and we took her out to the lake this…

A Great Day for Rosé

Happy National Wine Day! It’s a great day for rosé, don’t you think? Kuhlman Cellars has some of my favorite rosés. Their winemaker Bénédicte Rhyne is from Provence and I feel like you can taste a bit of that French passion for wine in every sip. Today we’re talking about the 2020 Kuhlmanation Estate Rosé…

Charcuterie and Albariño at San Martiño

Oh, what a night! I had the loveliest time at San Martiño Winery & Vineyards with my friend Jessica this evening. This hidden gem is in my darling lakeside town of Rockwall, Texas about thirty minutes east of Dallas. It’s a small, family-owned vineyard with exception wine. The family has been making wine in northern…

Spa Garden Party

I don’t talk about this often here on The Rose Table, but I am a huge at-home spa person. I do a manicure and facial every week, a pedicure and foot soak/scrub every other week, and I love to have girlfriends over for spa parties. Normally I set everything up inside but the garden is…

Visiting Efurd Orchards

It’s a beautiful day in Texas, 75 degrees with a light breeze and no clouds in sight. I’m working from my parents’ lake house in east Texas this week and we decided to take a break this afternoon to pick up goodies and enjoy homemade ice cream at Efurd Orchards, a place with old Timey charm…
