Publisher’s Letter Summer 2023

We are so excited about our summer issue! From cocktails to mocktails, summer seasonal recipes, and some amazing stories, there is something for everyone.

Christine Switzer writes about Sandra Daniels of Hippos & Hashbrowns, who recently opened her rst brick-andmortar bakery in Casa View aer selling for six years at local farmers markets. Teresa Radi captured mouth-watering images at the grand opening.

Molly Cummings, a biology professor at University of Texas in Austin always dreamed of creating a Texan spirit and she did just that, using forged berries from native juniper trees found in West Texas. Toby omason writes about her brand, WildGins, in his story, with cocktail and mocktail recipes provided by Zach Painter and Brittany Madler. anks go to Garden Café for providing the lush background for the images taken by Azure Photography.

Our seasonal recipes come this time from chefs Brooke and Mike Kelly, who own and operate Culinary Community Kitchen. I can’t say which is my favorite, the Watermelon & Halloumi Salad or the Salted Honey Cantaloupe Jam. Photographer Jessie Hagan visited their kitchen to get a shot of the recipes that put summer produce in the limelight.

And our own Eve Hill-Agnus writes about her experience at Sister Grove Farm, located on native Blackland Prairie in Van Alstyne. e Maciases are stewards of the land, practicing regenerative farming with their South Poll cattle and Hampshire sheep. ey believe everyone can reconnect with the land they stand on, and their farm is a place for mindful retreats.

And just in time for Summer, you can nd our North Texas Farmers Market Guide which also includes shopping tips for your trips to your local market.

We hope you enjoy our summer issue while we are excited and planning for fall and all the great stories and recipes that you will nd in our next issue.
