Oh My!

There is a lot of crazy food stuff happening these days and I am LOVING it!  First of all the Marx Food Contest, It’s Easy Being Green has kicked off and I’d love your support. No email registering, hooha’s, or rings of fire to jump through, just a click and your done 😉 I did a Kiwi and Mango Nigiri which was fun and tasty!




I’m excited to finally announce what you all have been waiting for…  well at least what we have been dreaming about for the last 330+ days… THE FOOD EXPERIMENT’S are coming back to ATX. This year it will be the SMOKE EXPERIMENT and we are more than pumped in fact, words cannot describe our excitement. My awesome husband Evan and I are ready to do this and do it well! We have been experimenting and have a rock solid dish! It’s TOP SECRET and we can only tell you these two things, it’s smokey and delicious. If you want to hear more details and possibly subtle clues on our dish find us on Twitter or Facebook. Most importantly, if you are in Texas BUY a ticket to experience this first hand and prepare to have your world rocked with 25 different dishes and sweet sweet Brooklyn Beer! TICKETS WILL SELL OUT!!! You won’t wanna miss this, we guarantee it! We will be giving away a pair of tickets to one of our lucky followers soon so stay tuned!

Thank you all for your continued support throughout the years. Without you, ZestyBeanDog would not have the “zest” that it does for cooking and competing! You are all much appreciated! Thank you!

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!
