How to Make Fresh Za’atar for Kebabs

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Wesson. The opinions and text are all mine. The holiday season is all about celebrating peace, love, and health with loved ones. And like any close-knit family, mine celebrates over delicious food. My family is a perfect snapshot of the United States, mixed with relatively recent immigrants and multi-generational Americans. In my immediate family alone, our ancestry covers Nebraskan-English settlers, Russian-Armenian migrants, Caribbean natives, German transplants, and Lebanese immigrants. Every one of these lands is usually represented on our holiday dinner table through traditional and not-so traditional takes on …

Jalapeño Cornbread Bites + Heluva Good! Dip

Thank you Heluva Good! for sponsoring this post. For those of you who do not already know, I live in Texas. And if you know anything about August in Texas, then you know that I am literally living in an oven. No joke, it is 106°F outside as I type this…. at 9 in the morning. When I walk outside, I feel personally attacked by Mother Nature. So there is nothing like sitting in a chilly, air conditioned room on a sweltering summer day and munching on a delicious treat. Seriously, with my scrumptious Jalapeño Cornbread Bites recipe and Heluva …

Bison Chili Bread with Better Than Bouillon

Bison Chili Bread

This post was sponsored by Better Than Bouillon as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. Change excites me. A change in hairstyle, a change in address, or even something as simple as a change in weather. A seasonal change is always welcome and always ushers in new experiences. That’s what I find so exciting about cooking. It may seem cliche, but the change in weather means a change in my kitchen. I go from fresh salads and BBQ in the summer to hearty soups and warm breads in …
