Super Creamy Macaroni & Cheese (GF)

Super Creamy Macaroni & Cheese (GF)

Who doesn’t love macaroni and cheese? Wait…are you picturing a blue box right now? I was one of those kids who loved the blue box mac & cheese with the powdered orange cheese. It is one of those nostalgic foods from childhood that you just […]

Cowboy Style Eggs Benedict (GF)

Cowboy Style Eggs Benedict (GF)

I typically like a lighter breakfast, but I will always make an exception for Eggs Benedict.  It is one of my favorite splurge breakfasts, the hollandaise, the poached egg…it’s just uncious and wonderful.  I have seen hundreds of versions and I have not had one […]

Jalapeno Sausage Sawmill Gravy (GF)

Jalapeno Sausage Sawmill Gravy (GF)

The Cowboy’s favorite breakfast of all time is biscuits and gravy.  Sure, on Sunday mornings we make eggs, bacon, potatoes and all the fixins but the first thing that goes on his plate is a biscuit with sawmill gravy poured all over the top…it is […]

My Favorite Gluten Free Buttermilk Biscuits

My Favorite Gluten Free Buttermilk Biscuits

Making biscuits around these parts is like a right of passage.  It was one of the first things I remember baking with my mom.  She always liked her biscuits thin and kind of crispy.  As I got older I came up with my own favorite […]

Slow Simmered Pinto Beans

Slow Simmered Pinto Beans

Pinto beans are a staple food in Texas, especially here down south. They are hearty, filling, good for you and super cheap! That being said, it seems like everyone has their own special recipe…or at least their own opinion when it comes to their preferred […]

Blackened Shrimp Tacos

Blackened Shrimp Tacos

Yesterday the heat index was 107.  On days like this, I dread the “what do you feel like for dinner” question…because in all honesty, I really have no idea.  I don’t want to cook a four course meal, heating up the kitchen with the stove […]

Classic Southern Coleslaw

A great coleslaw is a great thing to have in your recipe arsenal…especially during the summer time!  Classic Southern Coleslaw is the ultimate side for some of your favorite summer meals!  Creamy, cool, tangy and crunchy, it compliments a ton of dishes from BBQ brisket […]

Mango Pecan Oatmeal Cookies

Mango Pecan Oatmeal Cookies

My mom is a mango fanatic, so I wasn’t surprised when I received a text from her with a picture of some mango cookies that she picked up at a local restaurant.  My first thought was how delicious and summery that sounded and after looking […]

Red Pepper & Caramelized Onion Frittata

Red Pepper & Caramelized Onion Frittata

I have to admit, I am a frittata fanatic.  The Cowboy…not so much.  The texture of baked eggs is just not his thing but, I believe in my heart of hearts, that this frittata could forever change his mind.  I know it’s just eggs and […]

30 Minute Chicken Ranchero

30 Minute Chicken Ranchero

Chicken Ranchero was inspired by a trip down to South Texas for a family graduation.  After the event we all went out to eat to the only real restaurant in town which was a hopping Mexican food joint.  It was so crowded that we had […]
