By Kelly Bogard Hooray for sunshine! Don’t get me wrong. We LOVE the rain here in Central Texas. But it can sure wreak havoc on the weekend plans.

By Kelly Bogard Rice. Grown with pride by Texas farmers. It's an important economic driver in Southeast Texas. My favorite is a long-grain basmati rice, also known as Texmati.

Of course, as Texans, Tex-Mex was quite high on the list. As well as things like stew and potato soup. [...]
By Kelly Bogard You've heard me talk about how much I love getting fresh produce from our members. It's just one of the many ways I showcase Texas agriculture. And I love when members send me recipes to go with it. Several months ago, Jessica Domel introduced you to Bruce “Onion Man” Frasier, president of Dixondale [...]
By Kelly Bogard Preparing for a family gathering can be a tough challenge. You set the date and time. You invite the guests. But what about the food? It has to look good, taste good and fill everyone's stomachs! Sounds like a job for lasagna. That means a plate smothered with an abundance of noodles, [...]
By Kelly Bogard Every once in a while I get kicked out of my kitchen at home. Not because I am not doing a good job, but because my amazing husband wants to cook. During our 20-year relationship, he has cooked for me countless times and each meal is wonderful. We enjoy cooking together and [...]
By Julie Vrazel There’s no way to deny it—the cost of everything is rising, including beef. And significant price relief isn’t around the corner. While we’ve been enjoying years of steady retail beef prices, Texas ranchers have dealt with volatile markets. Today, those price swings are making their way into the grocery store. But do [...]
