New Autumn Menu For Sweater Weather at Dough Plano

“Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting, and autumn - a mosaic of them all." — Stanley Horowitz

I’ve always loved the above quote, as autumn/fall/PSL season/whatever-you-want-to-call-it truly is an experiential mosaic of colors, temperatures, tastes, and smells.

And now, since it's finally acting like fall outside, what better time to bundle up in your coziest sweater and boots and pop over to taste some new season-serenading menu items?

I’ve sung my praises before about Dough being located in Plano , and now there’s even more to croon about, and then pop on over to taste what’s new from the team this autumn.

The Burrata at Dough is perfectly creamy, truly among my favorite in town. The new Autumn Burrata is no different. The House-pulled Mozzarella is filled with strands of Mozzarella and cream, then adorned with butternut squash, oak roasted mushrooms, toasted zucca seeds, hydroponic arugula, and micro greens. This beats Pumpkin Spice Latte all day in my book (fair enough, my book is made up almost entirely of cheese, but still).

Dough’s Autumn Bruschetta is light and reflects the season stunningly with oak roasted mushrooms, roasted garlic, tomatoes, and Parmigiano Reggiano.

Salad enthusiasts will be fully on board with the Autumn salad offering – Bluebonnet Farms hydroponic mixed greens, arugula, pomegranate seeds, and roasted butternut squash all decked out for full flavor with goat cheese, candied walnuts, Bosc pear, and a tangy maple mulled cider vinaigrette. Even I would make this salad a meal and be pleased as a pumpkin about it.

Finally, the Autumn Pizza is topped with smoked Pancetta, fresh figs, goat cheese, wilted arugula, and a healthy drizzle of Texas Swinney Bees mesquite honey.

Stop by Dough in Plano and delight your senses with a true taste of the season.

Make Healthy Choices Simple With The Halal Guys

The Halal Guys recently opened their newest Dallas area location on lower Greenville, the third in the area. The company has plans to expand further in the DFW, with the next being in north Plano in the coming weeks. The company began as a street cart in NY and now has grown to locations throughout the US and worldwide. Talk about a success story! The Halal Guys is an excellent choice for those who want to eat healthy without breaking the bank. Wondering what exactly Halal means? I had that very question a few years back upon seeing it on a restaurant door, and googled away. I also recently wrote an article for Richardson Living explaining just that. It introduces the concept and talks a bit more about the Richardson location of Halal Guys and explains their menu.  The menu is the same at all locations of The Halal Guys. You go through the line, and build your own wrap or platter. Fill it with your choice of gyro, chicken, or combo, then load it up with toppings and sauce

Get Saucy at Razzoo's Cajun Cafe Plano

I've long been a fan of Razzoo's Cajun Cafe, a Texas born restaurant that features scratch-made Lousiana favorites. All locations are locally owned, and the 26-year-old restaurant has most of its locations in Texas, with one in NC, and some new spots TBA in the near future. Some of my favorite fried indulgences at Razzoo's are the "Rat Toes" on their appetizer menu. If you love a bit of spice, ignore the name and order up some of these jalapenos stuffed with shrimp, crab, then battered and fried, served with a Cajun Buttermilk sauce for dipping. And that's just scratching the slippery surface on all of the house-made delicious sauces at Razzoo's. National Hot & Spicy Food Day is Saturday, August 19, so in anticipation of that awesome food holiday, Razzoo's  invited us out for our own little sauce tasting, AKA Delia' Paradise. I was NOT aware that Razzoo's cooks up FIFTEEN different sauces in house, and once I found this out, I cou

A Tribute to El Palacio of Mexican Food, Huntsville, Alabama

This week a large piece of my childhood will be laid to rest. I know you think I'm being overly dramatic, but if you've ever had an iconic place where you've spend a large chunk of your life, I hope you'll understand where I'm coming from on this.  I have literally 24 other restaurant story deadlines to meet, but today the only thing on my mind is the news I received yesterday. I found out by a fluke (an owner's response to a Facebook review I'd posted years ago), and ended up having to be the bearer of bad news to my family and friends who also hold this establishment near and dear to their hearts.  The first restaurant I ever loved is closing their doors this week. This is my farewell. El Palacio opened in Huntsville 51 years ago, in 1966. Jimmy and Nonie McClure opened the very first location in Amarillo in 1962 in a remodeled gas station, after the Mexican food they added to their steakhouse menu started selling like wildfire. They wanted to
