Foodie Friday: Micro-Green Omelet

Last week I looked at using micro-greens in pesto. But they are quite tasty in a number of other things too – one of those being omelets. I will admit that this recipe was partly inspired by the fact that I bought two-dozen eggs at the farmer’s market. We aren’t vegan or vegetarian but we

Foodie Friday: Micro-Green Pesto

Pesto is always a great summer sauce, light and flavorful and full of greens. I’ve posted other fun pesto recipes on my blog in the past such as Arugula-Lavender and Mint-Arugula. But I started out making a slightly more traditional pesto with basil when I first started making pesto. I fell in love with the

Meridian Hive Meadery

Part of the reason that I was so excited to visit Austin recently was that it meant I could finally visit Meridian Hive Meadery. I’ve been to a decent number of breweries and a growing list of wineries but not many places make mead but Meridian Hive makes some that is pretty darn good. I

Fredericksburg Brewing Company

There are many places to stop and drink along Main Street in Fredericksburg, heck there is a one block wide but several block long stretch where you can drink as you walk along the street. Most of those places are wineries, it makes sense as we are in the heart of Texas Wine Country. But

Foodie Friday: Mesquite Smoked Pork Ribs

Keltin has wanted to learn to smoke meat for a while and recently added the smoker attachment to our grill. After getting some pork ribs he decided this was the perfect time to start. But he didn’t know what to put on them. I actually had very little to do with this recipe besides helping

Review: Gen Korean BBQ House

I realize that restaurant reviews are not something that I typically do on this blog but sometimes a place is just that good. One of the places that Keltin studied aboard while in college was South Korea and we have been looking for a good Korean BBQ restaurant for a while. On a coworker’s recommendation

Foodie Friday: Lemon Balm-Blackberry Meringue

Last weekend I had enough people over to cook some recipes that make more than Keltin and I should each normally. For dinner I made Coq Au Vin Blanc (from this post) and it turned out fantastic but for dessert I wanted something lighter. Thus I decided to try my hand at a meringue based
