Butterfly Pea Flower Tea

I discovered something new to experiment with in the kitchen thanks to Hill Country Lavender out of Wimberley, TX and their Buzzed Butterfly cocktail: Butterfly Pea Flower Tea. This tea is made of blue flowers that are typically collected in Asian countries. The tea has an earthy flavor and is not my favorite. The best

Lemon Blueberry French Toast

I love a good savory breakfast but sometimes you need something sweet. What could be better than homemade lemon-blueberry bread turned into French toast topped with a fresh berry compote and homemade whipped cream? The answer: not a whole lot. The recipes are an explosion of flavor that will leave you wanting more and groaning

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.

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
