JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa

When my friends Jessica and Ismail invited me on vacation to JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa, I jumped at the chance. As a spa enthusiast, it’s long been on my bucket list for having one of the best spas in Texas but it’s probably the most famous for its epic water…

Tanglewood Resort on Lake Texoma

Last week I took a trip to Tanglewood Resort on Lake Texoma on the Texas/Oklahoma border and thought I’d tell you all about it for Travel Tuesday. Since Tanglewood is dog friendly, I even brought my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Henry along for the trip! If you’re looking for a dog-friendly weekend trip that’s just…

Steak Quesadillas

I make quesadillas every single lunch and yet no recipes appear on The Rose Table. The reason? I never measure! But in an effort to bring you more of my everyday foods, I’m writing this up sans measurements. I especially love making quesadillas for lunch when I have a little leftover chicken or steak. On…

Passport Mexico

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you know how much I love Central Market. It’s basically Disneyland for foodies. So when Central Market invited me to preview Passport Mexico, I was ecstatic! This is Central Market’s seventh annual Passport event, which lasts two weeks (April 20 – May 3, 2015) and celebrates a different culture every year….
