“Pumpkin Bourbon Soup”

Texas is finally cold, and I’m ready to get cozy with a bowl filled with warm soup. But you know what would be better? A pumpkin full of warm soup. It’s just that much more awesome. This soup is full of fall flavors and beautiful in color. And to make you feel even cozier, I added a splash of bourbon. Let’s do this! To make this you will need: 2 small pumpkins 1 teaspoon […]

“Three Cheese Pumpkin Lasagna”

I’ve been on a pumpkin kick lately. ‘Tis the season, after all.  Enter–pumpkin, lasagna, full of herbs and tangy cheese and caramelized onions. Give this dish a try while pumpkin is still in season. It could very well replace your traditional lasagna, and even when pumpkin isn’t at your fingertips, swap in butternut squash. Here goes… To make the lasagna, you’ll need the following ingredients: 12 cooked lasagna noodles (you’ll […]

“Dove Nuggets”

My favorite part about the opening of hunting season is that I get to begin experimenting with new wild game recipes. But sometimes the best ideas and inspiration come at unexpected moments. While in Arkansas on a recent dove hunting weekend, my friend Jake Michael was in the kitchen chopping up some garlic and cleaning some dove breasts. When I asked him what he was making he said matter of […]

“Venison Roast with Red Wine & Juniper Berries”

A roast is often times made from a tougher cut of meat, a portion of the leg, for example. But I recently decided to turn two aged venison backstraps into a roast, which produced wonderful results in a much shorter time. If you don’t have venison, I highly recommend beef as well. The idea is to fold them over and truss them together with kitchen twine so that they are […]

“Weelicious Cookbook”

I first met Catherine McCord this passed April at the Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles. I was holed up waiting to tape Jimmy Kimmel Live and trying not to be very social until it was all over. But for some reason I decided that Catherine McCord would be the right person to see during my self-imposed isolation. So she came on by and we had a little prosecco together and […]

“Homemade Maraschino Cherries”

Aren’t you desperately curious to know what I did with those cherries I picked from my cherry tree with my homemade cherry picker? Well let me show you… My arms got rather tired and I wasn’t especially ambitious about getting them all that evening, since it seemed like an impossible feat. But! I had enough to make homemade maraschino cherries which really thrilled me. To make them, gather together: cherries […]

“How to Can Tomatoes & Other Tomato Tips”

Before I begin, I need to share a tip. I was reminded via twitter by my friend Paul over at Foodcrunch of this important summer tomato rule, so if you take nothing else away but this, I’ll be happy. If you want your juicy summer tomatoes to last longer… simply rest them on the windowsill stem-side down, rather than the commonly seen stem-side up. When I worked in my first […]

“Dewberry Bread Pudding”

I had quite the 4th of July weekend. It began with a long road trip from Austin to Arkansas. I drove the entire span of Arkansas and I marveled at how different it is depending on where you are in the state. It was purty country. The weekend can best be described as Foodapalooza. There have been so many divine dishes that I’m going to share with you over the […]

“Pickled Red Beet Eggs”

I like all things pickled. Pickled peppers, pickled ramps, pickled… things. Sorry. I’m not feeling very eloquent today. I just read a lot of legal jargon and it fried my brain and my eyes are blurry. I can barely see this screen. I’m waiting for things to return to normal… which isn’t necessarily eloquent either, but at least there’s a sliver of a chance. I had fried pickles the other […]
