Brunch at Lone Star Taco Bar

Lone Star Taco Bar deserves way more than a lone star!  I have put off writing this post because every time I even think about Lone Star my mouth starts to water and I crave their food.  From the homemade hot sauces (sweet potato habanera and tomatillo agave) to their …

The Kitchen Vent: Seeking Simpler Times

Okay so this is part rant and part recipe.  The rant is about food sensitivities, dietary choices, and the joke is on me because the recipe is gluten-free. As I’m getting ready to host another large Thanksgiving I’m thinking not only of what I’ll be preparing (and who’s bringing what) …

Social Media Mom Brain

I’d like to blame my haziness up there on what I have lovingly named “the plague” that has hit 3/4 of our family of late (and in the same breath be grateful that we were spared worse), but I can’t.  It’s not the never ending cold that drags us right …
