Cinco de Mayo

May 4, 2019
10:30 a.m.

Cinco de Mayo. In Texas, this is a major holiday, so I celebrate with the kids by preparing steak and chicken fajitas on the big green egg and serve them with home-brewed red and green salsa. You probably follow the same routine; however, this year let’s consider something a bit more daring–Arepas, for example, which are similar to pita bread but made with cornmeal. They have a crisp outer layer and creamy inner layer. Let’s upscale this party and add a WOW factor.

Mother’s Day Celebration

Asparagus, Leek, Gruyere Tart

Wondering what to get mom on this special day? What about the gift of you-me time? Celebrate with a cooking class at Terrapin Cove. One of my favorite memories with my daughter Ashley was when we took a cookie decorating class together. Playing with food is almost as much fun as making mud pies with mom when you were little. And these dishes will even taste better (not so gritty)!

Summer and Salads pair perfectly, but a green salad can only take you so far. In this class we will be exploring a variety of salads, as well as a variety of techniques, including soft-boiling an egg, grilling romaine, using a stove-top smoker and a spiralizer to create salads with unique flavors that pair well with grilled meats.
