February Behind the Scenes

It’s time again for another installment of A Zesty Bite goes behind the scenes.  For the month of February, I probably missed 2-3 “behind the scenes” shots.  I get so busy knowing that I need to get the food on the table so its not COLD or afraid my dogs will snatch something the...

One Pot Vegetable Pancetta Orzo

I usually send Olivia off to PDO (parent’s day out) on Tuesdays and Thursdays!  Since our vacation ran a little longer than expected due to weather delays I decided to keep her home so that I could just love on her all day long.  She got up and we soon made our way to...

Baked Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings

We have been very fortunate since the past couple of days were spent in Deer Valley, Utah.  Shaun and I were given the chance to go on this trip, however we left our little one behind.  My parents were gracious enough to even drive up and watch her in Lubbock.  They arrived a day...

Lately I’ve been craving fish/shrimp tacos.  A craving that...

Hatch Chile Cornbread Waffles
