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!

  1. I’m just getting over the icky cold that’s going around and did make some chicken soup. Something about it that’s so perfect when you’re not feeling well. Yours looks yummy!

  2. I believe so, they announce the winners tomorrow for the public vote and the internal vote so when they make it “official” I guess is when I will know for sure πŸ™‚

    The ZBD Fine Herb Blend is a blend of herbs I make and often give away to my subscribers, I plan on selling them very soon πŸ™‚

    Thanks for voting!

  3. I love chicken noodle soup too – my favourite. It’s not meant to be cold in Sydney but it is. We’ve had the worst start to summer ever. So the soup season continues to be in full swing in fact, I had chicken noodle soup for lunch yesterday.
