In the heat of the summer, a heavy meal isn’t appealing…at least not to me. So, it was a great find to pop into Ruggles Green over in CityCentre off of I-10. Ruggles Green is Houston’s first Certified Green Restaurant, adhering to the guidelines of the Green Restaurant Association. It’s a cute spot and a busy one!
Feverish sweet, these stuffed California dried figs standout amongst the mix. Unique in their chocolatey design and terrific taste! The almonds add that expected crunch you’ll crave.
Ever tried Oaxacan Creamed Corn…Mmmm, it’s delicious. Rich, creamy and packed with flavor. Let’s face it: When it comes the Thanksgiving Day meal, it’s all about the sides! Turkey is turkey, but the sides can really make your meal shine!
Grill your favorite fish to accompany this terrific tag-a-long. Seriously y’all, they pair so well together! I can’t recommend this new dish from Paesanos enough.

It tastes pretty good too! This recipe is simple – just mix the ingredients the night before, and serve cold or warm […]
