Holiday Recipe Roundup!

I remember when I was a little girl, the holidays seem to take forever to get here. I would wake up each day and it seemed to just drag on. I would watch movies, drink hot chocolate and popcorn, we would do all of the usual holiday festivities. It was a really good time.

Nowadays, I still do most of that but now it seems like the holidays just creep up out of nowhere. Like there’s not much of a break between summer and Christmas. I guess my inner child would be excited.

While I am totally behind on the holiday cooking and baking this year, I thought I would roundup some recipes that are favorites around this time and maybe they’ll give you some inspiration!

Black Eyed Pea Salad

Relax, take a deep breath. Breathe in and breathe out. Feeling better? No? Repeat. Breathe in…. Breathe out…

Fig and Goat Cheese Pork Loin

Brown Butter Gnocchi and More Local Musicians

Hello hello! So, I know many of you are probably getting a little annoyed with my very frequent posts about music lately, I know I am a food blog above anything else, but I live in Austin. We are kind of known for music.

Anyway, I just wanted to tell you about this really cool band I found recently.

Goodmorning everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend? Did anyone else attend Fun Fun Fun Fest?

I was able to go for the first time this year, and it blew me away. Seriously, FFF was ridiculously fun and awesome. The amount of talent that was here was incredible. (more…)
