Delicious Fall Recipes

Things have been super busy in my life and I’ve been meaning to post a blog about our traditional Halloween weekend. I made the most delicious recipes that I absolutely had to share with everyone. So, instead of a Halloween post, consider it a toast to Fall!

We had our traditional evening in, handing out candy, watching scary movies, and of course…cooking up some delicious dishes in the kitchen. I’m not a big dessert person, not that I don’t love dessert, but I try to avoid as many sugary temptations as possible. Halloween though, is an exception, and I baked the most AMAZING muffins ever!! Thank you Martha Stewart!

Saturday Trip To Jimmy’s

I’ve been hearing about this Italian food store in Dallas called Jimmy’s Food Store for quite some time, and today I finally had the chance to check it out. Think Eatzi’s meets local Italian flare. It has the ambiance of a village market with a wide variety of meats, cheeses, pastas, wine, dessert, and fresh produce.

Aside from all of the market varieties offered, they also have a great deli with some delicious Italian Sandwich selections. I opted for the Muffaletta and in return received quite the monstrosity. This sucker was huge. Laced with delicious Mortadella, Ham, Provolone, Genoa Salami, and Olive Salad it was packed full of flavor and absolutely big enough for two.

Autumn is Approaching

October in Texas is definitely my favorite month. The weather starts to cool down, Halloween is approaching, and of course, the State Fair of Texas!! Today couldn’t be more of a perfect day to start out the month right with some tasty fried goodness. So, I am off to the fair today to sample some of this year’s crazy fried recipes.

The State Fair of Texas is the home of the Fletcher’s Corny Dog…hands down my favorite food item at the fair. In 2005 the fair committee established a contest, the Big Tex Choice Awards, to discover the most unique food item presented by the vendors. This year’s award winner was Fried Beer. I’m not really sure how you fry beer, and I will definitely head over to the booth to take a peek…but I think I’ll leave the taste to my imagination.  Continue reading
