In the Kitchen w/ Kelly: Pulled Pork Salad

Pulled pork is a great option when it comes to entertaining and feeding a crowd, as one pork shoulder alone can feed up to 10 people. Now, if only we could serve the pulled pork, and only the pulled pork. I think we can all be in agreement that everything is bigger in Texas, yes? Well, this applies especially to food. Time after time, this Southern practice results in an inflated party menu, comprised of a number of dishes, expanding far beyond any group of human being’s ability to consume. We’re so lucky. A buffet of proteins scattered across...

In the Kitchen w/ Kelly: Aggie Oatmeal Cookies

Football season is back, and it is time, once again, for Aggieland to come together and show some support for our favorite football team. I’ll admit, I’m no football aficionado. I have an attention span that lasts about as long as my three year old daughter’s, and I was never really the “sporty” type to begin with. But never-the-less, I sure do love football season. Maybe it has something to do with the time of year, when Texas transitions out of the heat of the summer and into the cool fall months. Maybe it’s the fact that I live...

In the Kitchen w/ Kelly: Spaghetti Squash with Fresh Basil and Parmesan Cheese

The summer months are going to be here in no time, which means sooner than later for Texas, and it will be almost unavoidable to be seen in a bathing suit. The kids will be chomping at the bit for a little pool time, and I’ll undoubtedly be caught standing next to someone who might be a little leaner than me. I guess it’s time to start pretending like I enjoy eating healthy and disdain the thought of bread. Hilarious. While I know cutting back on the carbs isn’t going to bless me with abs of steel, I guess...

In the Kitchen w/ Kelly: Antipasto Pasta Salad

Party or no party, I adore a good ol’ antipasto platter any day of the week. Italian ingredients like marinated fresh Mozzarella and salty, piquant Sopressata have my heart. Not only are they full of tasty little bites, but they’re also beyond easy to make. The ingredients are typically store-bought items arranged on a single platter to come together in one big flavor explosion. As far as I’m concerned, there’s only one thing missing from an antipasto platter, and with zero regard of stating the obvious, I’m going to go ahead and say it: Pasta. Okay, okay…I know that’s...
