By Shelby Shank When you think of cantaloupe, you think of Pecos. When you think of peaches, you think of Fredericksburg. But if somebody says strawberries, Poteet is the place that comes to mind. Those strawberries are the heart of 4G Reyes Farms where cousins David Reyes and Joel Garcia carry on their family’s tradition [...]

By Kelly Bogard Bright red and full of sweet juicy goodness, strawberries are a mainstay in Texas this time of year. They're so popular in the quiet town of Poteet that they dedicate three days to celebrating them in April. This year, the Poteet Strawberry Festival will be April 7-9. Everything from jams and breads [...]

By Kelly Bogard Fresh strawberries are one of my all-time favorite summer treats. I love them right from the vine when I can find them. But alas, the growing season for strawberries is quickly slipping away with the warmer temperatures. So I plan to savor every. Last. One. Do you know how to tell if [...]

By Kelly Bogard Love is in the air. And although many see Valentine’s Day as a commercial holiday, it’s still a reason to celebrate those you love. Near and far. Some give flowers. Others a box of chocolates. But, in Texas, we like to head into the kitchen and whip up a dessert made with [...]

By Kelly Bogard Bluebonnets. Baby calves. Telltale signs of spring in the Lone Star State. But the sticky sweetness and slight tartness of Texas strawberries lets my taste buds know spring has truly sprung. Bite, slice or dip. Strawberries are just plain delicious. And a crate full arrived at our office last week from longtime farmer Cora [...]

Strawberry Shortcake

By Kelly Bogard Mother Nature has a weird sense of humor. Just as I was getting ready for the warmer weather, the snow came. Big, white, fluffy flakes covered Waco and the TFB state office on Wednesday. The snow reminded me of whipped cream as it piled delicately on the ground. That, of course, got my foodie [...]

By Kelly Bogard Ah, a holiday weekend! It's a time to enjoy friends and family, play in the sprinklers and cook out. It's also a time I don't want to be stuck in my kitchen or inside at all, for that matter. But, with every good cookout, there needs to be a dessert. Something quick [...]

By Kelly Bogard If your house is anything like mine, you don't always get to celebrate a holiday on the actual day. Valentine's Day is no exception at our house, either. A few weeks ago, I mentioned that my mom-in-law's birthday happens to be the same day. Then there is sweet Butters running around giving [...]

By Kelly Bogard It’s getting to be that time of year again. The kids are itchin' to get out of school for the summer, baseball is in full swing, and I'm resisting the urge to request my desk be relocated outside so I can catch some rays. Another thing is happening, too. All of the [...]
