My Favorite Pizza Dough Recipe

We added a Fontana Forni Italian pizza oven when we renovated our backyard to include an outdoor kitchen. It was the best move because we use the oven all the time. Now that I'm retired, I want to learn to use it to cook other food. Fontana's website has great recipes...

Summer Bucket List – Free Printable

Every year, when I was in grade school, just as the school year ended, Mother would sit me down at the kitchen table with a yellow legal pad and a pen. "I want you to write down everything you want to do this summer," she'd say. "Even vacations?" I'd reply....

Hospitality is in my DNA. I founded Home with a Twist, a daughter’s twist on her mother’s traditions, in memory of my mother to celebrate her life and the gifts she shared with me. Mother loved to celebrate life’s occasions – big and small.

She taught me how to prepare fabulous food, entertain guests with style and design a traditional home with a pop of color and a splash of animal print. Share my fondness of blending Mother’s mid-century style with a modern spin.

"Where you see wrong or inequality or injustice, speak out, because this is your country. This is your democracy. Make it. Protect it. Pass it on." The Honorable Associate Justice Thurgood Marshall, United States Supreme Court.

Marshall, a civil rights lawyer, was the first African American Supreme Court Justice. He used the courts to fight Jim Crow and dismantle segregation in the U.S.

It's not a celebration without a monogram. Thank you, @missmollysmonogramming, for helping me put the finishing touch on my festive door decor. I've had the @ballarddesigns wall basket for ten plus years, and it's the best for changing with the seasons.

Why do I love ❤️🤍🩵 so much?  When I was little my room was Americana themed. My.mother painted the hardwood floors a  glossy navy blue and I had a red, white and blue quilt on my bed. Everything about my room was perfectly perfect.

I think that's why I like to decorate my porch every July 4th.

I love supporting women in small business and Hana owner @fioregelatocafe knocks it out of the park!

The sandwiches are to die for! I enjoyed the Cinq Terre - a grilled club with prosciutto,ham, turkey, cheese, pear and fig! While I waited I sipped the perfect Americano and I took home homemade Gelato for Mr. Twist.

Hannah is open 7-days a week. The perfect spot to meet friends and make new ones!

In this week's episode of The Happy Hostess podcast, I share how my mother hosted - never with perfectionism in mind. Mother taught me so many things - mostly to make sure my guests left the party feeling loved and well fed, and not just with food. Tune in for classic entertaining with a modern twist.

❤️🤍🩵 Y'all S'mores are my favorite summer food. 

Did you know Girl Scout troop leader Loretta Scott Crew is credited with the first known recipe for s'mores, which was published in 1927 in the Girl Scout handbook Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts. The recipe was originally called "Some More" and was intended to feed 16 scouts. It called for 16 graham crackers, eight chocolate bars, 16 marshmallows, and eight roasting sticks. The recipe instructed scouts to toast marshmallows over the coals until they were crispy and gooey, then sandwich them between a graham cracker and a chocolate bar. Thank you, Loretta, for the quintessential summer fare.

Comment S'more, and I'll send you July 4th S'more Party ideas and a FREE printable. 💥🧨

Road trip Chronicles - our little getaway to Minden, Louisiana, to see my friend Sara and stay at her beautiful property, The Villas, at Spanish Court was fabulous! 🌻🌻

We went to the Sunflower Festival in Gilliam and picked sunflowers and zinnias. Fields full of blooms as far as the eyes could see.🌸🏵. Ate delicious seafood and made S'mores on our patio.

We even toured the Bonnie & Clyde Ambush Museum in Gibsland. That was interesting! Such a piece of history since the infamous couple were from Dallas, and my Daddy pumped gas for them when he was about 8-9 years old when they'd stop in Fort Worth.

Be sure to give Sara a follow @simplysoutherncottage - she's got an amazing giveaway going on!

I met this gorgeous woman @catherinewhite.art several years ago via Instagram. We became "pen pals" via our DMs and learned we have a lot in common. 

Last night, she and her husband hosted a lovely dinner party, and I witnessed her hospitality in action. Delicious welcome cocktails, cold avocado soup in the garden, a gourmet dinner ending with a delicate peach cake.

Catherine has become one of my closest friends. I love spending time with her. We hear so many negative things about social media, but in this case, finding her makes me a winner!

Easy summer dinner idea - we buy bags of frozen shrimp from Costco. They are a quick thaw, so you can whip up shrimp tacos in a jiffy. SAVE this post for later.

Shrimp Taco seasoning:

1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp brown sugar

Mix spices in a bowl. Toss in one pound (or, in my case, 20 pieces of shrimp). Toss to coat all the shrimp. Heat 2 tsp olive oil in a cast iron or regular skillet. Add shrimp in a single layer and cook two minutes on each side. Serve with whatever you like - taco shells, tortillas, or over a salad.

When my friend Mary won a trip to Riveria Maya, she took her childhood besties along for the fun! ✈️🏖

We stayed a week at the stunning @vidanta resorts, and it was beyond amazing. Blue waters, white sand, friendly staff, delicious food, and daily activities - you should have seen us at water aerobics. Lazy days by the pool, swimming in the ocean, and we had the best seats a @cirquedusoleil! ⛱️ Happy hour BTW is noon to 2 p.m. 🍸🍹

I returned home renewed, tan, and filled with new memories. I love these girlies so much @mary.hendricks.claflin and @juberh ❤️❤️

"A sister is our first friend and second mother." Sunny Gupta

My sister Paula was 15 when I was born. This photo is pretty much how we were during my childhood - always together. From her, I learned how to tie my shoes, my multiplication tables, learning colors with eating M&Ms, and how to be the perfect houseguest, and she hosted fun sleepovers at the DG house at TCU.

Happy Mother's Day, dear sister, and to all the women who lovingly "mothered" someone who needed it.

I moved things around - much to Mr. Twist's dismay - and turned my breakfast area into a "keeping room." Comment BLOG and I'll send you extra details.

Existing for centuries, a keeping room allowed family and friends to gather near the hearth or warmth from the kitchen, which was typically the only source of heat.

Guests can sit and visit comfortably while I cook, but I love it the most in the quiet of the morning with my first coffee of the day. The light coming in and the bright colors makes it cheerful and welcoming. 

Thank you @lillianhudsondesign for sourcing the game table - it folds out!

And @shulerstudio for the custom monogram I used on the back of the chair.
