Marinated Feta Herb Mix

Marinated Feta Cheese Marinated Feta is simply feta in olive oil with herbs and flavorings added. It is served in a bowl and ladled onto crackers or any other edible raft you might conjure. This recipe is for the herb mix used in marinated feta, but the recipe contains instructions for using it. The beauty of this recipe is that it makes enough herb mix to make bounteous amounts of marinated feta cheese. And this might seem like a crazy thing to do, but if you are like me, once you see how easy this is to make and set out for guests (or snacking by the fridge) you will make it over and over again. With only feta and olive oil needed in addition to a spoonful of herb mix, you will find that it is simply too easy and too good to not make often. On top of that, it is a cinch as a dish to bring to a party. Further, this herb mix makes a great gift.

2015 Foodways Texas Symposium: The Texas Mexican Table

I traffic in recipes, in ways to make food. But sometimes I take a recipe and step back a few paces, and think about the ingredients and where they came from, how they got to my kitchen, such as when cumin came to the west with the Spaniards in a time of conquest and imperialism….

Corn Pudding

Corn Pudding

When a recipe involves cornmeal, things get personal. I read a comment string on a cornbread recipe yesterday where regional interests were lobbing verbal grenades about “real” this and that and the “right” way and the “wrong” way and, funnily, everyone had a different perspective on what the “real” and “right” way is. Cornmeal strikes…

Bluebonnets in Clay County

Just because I’m not writing about it doesn’t mean I’m not cooking. I’m cooking. I’ve simply been cooking to feed, not necessarily to create. Sometimes, when you’ve put 300 some odd recipes out in the ether, you need to sit back and enjoy them. So I’ve been doing what you have hopefully been doing now…

Edible Eggs: A Strawberry Omelet

Edible Dallas & Fort Worth gave me free reign to do egg recipes for this issue. I ran with it. I love eggs. I love them scrambled, fried, hard-boiled, poached, deviled and just about any other way you can think of to make them. But doing recipes for Edible also meant that I got to…
