By Kelly Bogard I spent quite a bit of time over the weekend trying to decide what I wanted to use for the blog recipe this week. I knew I wanted to go with something special for St. Patrick's Day, but then I was stumped. First, I thought about how it needed to be green. Then [...]
By Kelly Bogard This week, Texas Farm Bureau has been celebrating Food Check-Out Week. Food Check-Out Week is all about promoting Texas agriculture, sharing facts about food and opening the lines of communication between farmers and consumers.

By Amanda Hill We Texans love our chili. Everyone's recipe is a little different—whether you make it with extra jalapenos, beans, no beans, thick, thin, venison or lean beef.

I want to share my appreciation with so many people—my co-workers, neighbors, my daughter's teachers—but I always struggle to find something thoughtful, festive and affordable. This year, though, I'll be giving Potato Soup Mix in a Jar. It's a [...]
By Kelly Bogard Earlier this week, you may have seen my blog about a common misconception about beef. It sure had people fired up! Beef is high in protein and has some unique qualities that make it a healthy choice, especially for families. Last Friday, I spent some time cooking with the Texas Beef Council and learning more about lean [...]
By Amanda Hill As I mentioned, Texas rice farmers make the best rice dishes. I learned last week as a judge of the Colorado County Rice Dish Contest that the fine Texas rice farmers down there really know how to make a good thing—Texas rice—even better. The grand prize went to Colorado County Farm Bureau [...]
