Foodie Friday: Dill-Chive Butter

I have not done much cooking with fresh dill but the little bit I have done has been quite flavorful (it was called for to garnish a fish dish). In the last TexSelect Farms Grab Box there was fresh dill. To be a bit different I decided to mix the dill with chives in butter

Foodie Friday: Corn Salad with Marjoram Dressing

One of the things out of my TexSelect Farm Grab Box was fresh marjoram. I had no idea what to do with fresh marjoram so of course I went to my handy cookbook and found a variation of the recipe below. This salad is nice and light and perfect for two people for an easy

Foodie Friday: Pistachio Gremolata with Seared Salmon

I made this recipe a few weeks ago when my boyfriends parents were in town. I found it in a cookbook for cooking with fresh herbs. This recipe came out perfectly. It was fresh, lite, and a great start to spring. This recipe is fairly each but making the gremolata is a little time consuming

Foodie Friday: Italy Inspired – Risotto

Italy Inspired

I love risotto but it is always expensive at restaurants. Some of the best risotto that I have ever had was in Sienna, Italy. On the outdoor patio I had Gorgonzola risotto with pears and a balsamic sauce. Glorious. My attempted recreation of it was not to my liking but my parents loved it. Anyway

Foodie Friday: Tex Select Farms Grab Box: Herbs, Dressing Recipes, and More

As you tell from past posts, I really enjoy farmer’s markets. But the Dallas Farmers Market is too far away for me to visit every weekend. One of my favorite markets is the Clearfork Farmers Market in Fort Worth. It is much smaller than Dallas but you get to know the vendors well. One of
