With Labor Day this weekend, grills are firing up across Texas. Some of you may be planning burgers or steaks, but if you’re looking for something lighter, do I have a recipe for you! Lemon Chicken Kabobs is a family recipe from our very own Amanda Hill. They’ve been grilling these up for years.
It seems fitting at the end of summer to share a recipe that you can make for your family. The best part? It’s a two-part recipe, so you can prep the day before and throw it on the grill the next. That’s why I’m renaming these “No Labor” Lemon Chicken Kabobs. I thought the name fit the weekend.

Ah yes, it’s that time of year. The house gets a little quieter as the kids leave to fill the hallways of their schools with excitement for a new school year.
My little Butters isn’t quite old enough for “big kid” school yet, but that doesn’t stop her from talking about it. In fact, she is planning on going from preschool into high school and working on her college degree by the age of 7 or 8. She’s three and has a very active imagination! As a mom, I want to help her become everything she can. I can’t read the books for her or finish her math homework, but I can give her the nourishment she needs to make her brain strong so she will be ready for school when it is her time.

It’s that time of year again. Backpacks are packed with fresh supplies, new shoes are being tied, and school bells are beckoning kids across Texas and the nation. If your child chooses to buy the school lunch instead of packing their own, the lunch line will look a little different this year.
Earlier this spring, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced a new meal pattern for the National School Lunch and School Breakfast programs. The new requirements will go into effect this school year.
The new rules governing school nutrition include:

The 2012 Olympics are in full swing, and I am officially addicted. I admit, the Summer Olympics have always captivated me. As a little girl, I was glued to the TV—watching hours of gymnastics, swimming, diving and just about any other sport I could find. It’s pretty extraordinary to watch America’s finest athletes go toe-to-toe with the best in the world.
Watching these incredible athletes, you have to wonder what it takes to prepare their bodies for competition. Sure, they spend countless hours in the gym, at the pool, on the court. But they also think of food as fuel.

Nothing says summer more than taking a big bite of a plump, fresh Texas peach and having the juice drip down your chin. Fresh fruits and vegetables are found in abundance this summer at farmers markets all over the state.
I love wandering a good farmers market. The bright colors, the hustle and bustle, the great people watching—and the chance to meet the farmers who grew the fresh produce before me.
There are always some items I expect to see, like tomatoes picked straight from a vine or peaches plucked from a Hill Country tree.
