Treat of the Week: Summer Paletas

summer paletas recipes

As the summer months continue, we will all begin looking for ways to beat the heat. Since childhood, I’ve had a love of popsicles, but it wasn’t until I moved to Texas that I realized how amazing popsicles could really be. Dotting neighborhoods throughout San Antonio are fruterias and palaterias, shops dedicated to selling fresh […]

Lola Cooks: Orange and Olive Salad

As promised, we have more healthy food coming your way this month. Personally, I hope you LOVE this one as much as I do. It is one of my absolute favorite things to eat. This is certainly not an American flavor combination and may make you cringe a bit, but I urge you to try […]

Cookie Week 2013 continues with this light and crispy cookie. The cookie itself is thin and crunchy. The almonds add a bit of texture and flavor and the citrus peel offers unexpected moments of chewiness and fruity goodness. These are a great treat to be enjoyed with a cup of tea or coffee and will […]

I hope you are enjoying our Cookie Week 2012. To give you (and me) a little break I am about to change your cookie making world. This treat is ridiculously simple and tasty… and very pretty. Today we are making palmiers, but with a little twist. To punctuate it with some holiday flavor we have added cinnamon and orange […]

Lola Cooks: Citrus Marmalade

citrus marmalade recipe

There is a proliferation of citrus populating the produce section.  I find myself trying new ways to fit it into every meal. Many years ago I fell in love with butter croissants and orange marmalade. For me, this coupled with a freshly pressed pot of coffee is the perfect breakfast indulgence. While it may be a surprise […]

Treat of the Week: Frozen Clementine Sorbet

To kick off the new year we are lightening things up just a little.  In an effort to help any who have resolved to cut a few pounds we have cut out the fats for this treat. Don’t think that means less taste, though. This little serving of sorbet is bursting with flavor. Clementines are […]

We are closing out our annual Cookie Week with a holiday classic. However, we’ve added a little twist. This Linzer cookie incorporates orange zest with walnuts for the dough and uses cranberry jam for the filling. The result is pure holidays. The flavors here are a perfect wintery combination. The tartness of the jam goes […]

This week we had the pleasure of meeting a very interesting woman. She is the reigning American Honey Princess, Allison Adams. Allison travels the nation bringing the story of the honeybees and their sweet gift. The bees are lucky to have her as an advocate. For our treat this week, we have adapted a couple […]

Treat of the Week: Strawberry Strata

Welcome to April. March is always topsy turvy in terms of weather. There were some very chilly days and some very warm days, but I believe that spring is finally here to stay. In Dallas, it seems to only be spring for a couple of weeks. Then we move straight to summer. For me, during that ephemeral spring […]
