About zestybeandog

I live in Austin with my wonderful husband, dog Ginger, and cat Skiddy. We are a pretty laid back group (except for Ginger). When I'm not teaching yoga, personal training, or dog walking... I'm in the kitchen. I'm always experimenting with new ingredients and thinking of ways to prepare fresh foods in a unique way. I hope to update the blog 4-5 times a week. I've had several friends, family, and clients inquire about my recipes so here it goes. What to expect: Healthy recipes that are good for you, some classics (that have been spruced up), some not so healthy recipes (still made with quality ingredients that can be enjoyed in moderation), and beer and wine parings/reviews! I hope you enjoy, cheers!

    • I love kale too! Not everyone likes it all that much but I find the lemon really transforms it šŸ™‚ I like your style!!!! Personally, I think taking the grilled cheese to the next dimension is ALWAYS best, but ONLY with a quality salt, I was at Central Market the other day and their “truffle salt” was a very poor excuse for truffle salt…. Savory Herb and Spice Shop and Marx Foods has some quality versions šŸ™‚ thanks for the comments!
