Here in Houston, the weather has been playing games with us. One day we are looking for scarves and trying to bundle up, and the next day it’s sunny, breezy, and you will be more than comfortable in sandals. It just makes no sense at all. Well, the whole country has been through quite a chill this past week, the drastic weather change was known as a “polar vortex” according to weather experts. In light of such cold weather I was inspired to create a warm, wholesome dish and I thought what could be better than homemade Salisbury Steak.



I know when you think of making pizza, it doesn’t quite sound easy, sounds more time-consuming but I promise when I use to word ‘easy’ I really mean it. This recipe is fast, flavorful, and it’s ready in the half the time it takes to order pizza.


We all have taco night where we cook up some deliciously seasoned meat, and get out the fixings: lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, etc…

I thought it would be fun to add some different components to the tacos, within the realm of mexican food. Sweet yellow corn, adds a subtle burst of warm sweetness, but maintains a spicy chili kick. Black beans add more depth, protein, and absorb all the flavor!


Just last week my mother-in-law came to visit us. It was more than a pleasure having her stay with us, since she lives so far away. While she did not take a break from helping out any way she could, the only time she relaxed was to enjoy a home cooked meal. That being said, I thought pork ribs would be a fabulous way for her to enjoy the taste of Texas. Although, since she doesn’t have any sort of sweet tooth, I made these ribs deliciously savory.


From time to time, I get these immense cravings for juicy burgers…I mean who doesn’t, they are just soo good. Ordinarily, I would probably stop by a burger joint, in between errands, to satisfy my craving. Although, sometimes burger pitt stops are accompanied by sugary sauces, french fries, and maybe a soda…so I decided to fulfill my needs in my own kitchen.
