the buzz




Houston, Texas

Named after General Sam Houston, Houston is the largest city in the state of Texas. Other factoids also put the city at the top of the heap: it’s the 4th largest city in the US; the theater district has the second largest number of theater seats in a downtown area; it’s home to the largest medical center in the world—and the city’s temperature really gets up there too. Houstonians take refuge in the 11,000 air-conditioned restaurants, eating out more than any other city’s residents—and for good reason. Houston’s Tex-Mex is about as good as it gets, and there’s a reason people can’t stop talking about Texas BBQ.

About me:
I'm a little bit of a daredevil in cooking. I don't care if I mess up a recipe in order to try something new. I enjoy making up my own dishes - some come out terrific like my new chocolate marshmallow candy that I call "Rocky Robin" and some come out distrastrous (see "My Cooking Tragedies.") - but all are worth the effort. I also have 3 teenagers and a husband of 20 years that keep me extremely busy the rest of the time.
