    DALLAS — Spring has sprung, and not only are the birds chirping and the flowers growing, but everything’s also coming up rosé! Yeah, it might not have the best reputation, but Rosé is one of the greatest wines there is — a white wine with just a kiss of grape skin to give it it’s gorgeous pink color. And yes, it doesn’t take a genius to know that color is one of the things I love about it, but it’s also […]

  • Spice of Blythe: Let Food Bring Us Together

    DALLAS — It’s a tough time to be an American right now.  The country is divided in two. And as sad as the division makes me, some things give me hope.  Like seeing so many women and children getting together to let their voices be heard. Speaking loudly is one thing we need, but another thing is common ground.  And what ground could be more common than food? So whether it’s baking a pie for your neighbor, sharing some ice […]

  • Spice of Blythe: Cooped Up? Time to Cook!

    DALLAS — Hey y’all, the weather in Dallas may not seem like it today, but it’s wintertime… And that means for all anyone knows you could be completely snowed in by this weekend.

So here are some ideas for […]

First is the most basic: ground meat.  Whether it’s beef, turkey, chicken or pork, ground meat is essential for meals from tacos to lasagna to spaghetti. Then, of course, there’s chicken.  You may think it’s boring, but think of all you can […]

  • Spice of Blythe: Give Santa Something New!

    DALLAS — It’s Christmas time, y’all!  I’ve been thinking about the most important Christmas tradition of them all: Santa’s milk and cookies. And you know what?  I think we can do better. Start with the cookies.  Can you say boring?  Imagine eating the same chocolate chip cookies at house after house.  Sure it’s great for the first couple dozen, but after a while, you’re gonna wanna mix it up. Let’s mix it up in ways that bring the family together! […]
