Lettuce Breakfast Tacos


Anyone who has noticed even a handful of my posts knows I’m an avid taco lover. Wrap it up in a seared white corn tortilla, stuff it in a crunchy yellow or blue corn taco shell and I’ll pretty much eat anything. Day 2 of Whole30 had me standing in front of my fridge barely…

Cauliflower Soft Tacos


  Peace, love, and taco grease! Right? Well in this case, peace love, and sauteed cauliflower spiked with fennel and smoked paprika. Add a little water to the saute skillet just before serving and voila! Taco grease! Well, it was tasty enough to fool this die hard taco lover anyway. Add a side of my…

Blackberry BBQ Chicken with Honey Glazed Carrots


I’ve been making the same BBQ sauce recipe since I was about 20 years old. It’s pretty simple, but over the years I tweak it now and again to mix things up a bit. For this recipe, I picked up some gorgeous blackberries from Detwiler’s Farmer’s Market, along with some locally raised chicken breasts, and…

Smoked Chicken Summer Rolls with Avocado Poblano Sour Cream


  Inevitably, I always have a couple days worth of leftovers after I grill. Wanting something fresh and light, I decided to utilize leftover smoked chicken and corn in this Summer Roll recipe. Summer Rolls can be a bit time consuming but so worth the effort. To simplify this recipe, just omit the rice paper…

Pecan Smoked Chicken Thighs


I know most people are crazy about chicken and turkey breast, but for me dark meat is where it’s at. It has all the flavor and is the most tender cut of poultry. So I go against the grain, as I am prone to do, and always opt for bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs for almost…

Egg Muffins with Spinach and Toasted Fennel


If breakfast is before 10am, I’m not interested. However, on mornings I hike the Fair Hill trails or volunteer at Fair Weather Farm breakfast is an absolute must. The best way to ensure I am responsible in the morning is for me to make breakfast in bulk on the weekends so all I have to…

Char Grilled Twice Baked Potatoes


In Texas, a Plain baked potato is anything but plain. Order a plain baked potato in the Lone Star State and that potato is gonna arrive at your table piled high with shredded cheddar, sour cream, bacon, and chives. This twice baked potato recipe is my version of a Texas Plain. I grilled the potato…

Szechuan Stir Fry with Tofu


It was 90 something degrees yesterday but what did we both want for dinner? Hot and spicy stir fry of course, AND I decided to oven fry the tofu on top of that! Hope the extra 200 or so calories I saved by skipping the pan frying was worth how heated my kitchen got with…

Daikon Scrambled Egg Tacos


What’s the number one must have hiking accessory? Why a hearty breakfast of course! Before I ventured out on my first hike on the Fairhill Trails near my home, I got busy preparing breakfast. With several organic daikon radishes in my fridge, courtesy of Fair Weather Farm at Fairhill, I decided to saute them hash-style…
