Style and music collide this month in our cover story highlighting local soul singer/songwriter Leon Bridges (Coming Home, page 32) and in our Inside Design feature that showcases the home of Green River Ordinance band member Jamey Ice (The Ice House, page 54). Jamey and his wife, Melissa,...

On our cover this month, we feature Dr. Kent Brantly, picked by the magazine’s readers as one of the area’s most interesting people of the year. All of the 10 locals included on the list (see page 52) are extraordinary in some way. Whether it be Brandon Finnegan, the first to pitch in...

When the sizzle of summer finally fizzles, it means one thing for my family: camping season. From late September through early December, we pack up every other weekend to get away from the city and cellphone reception, slow down and enjoy the great outdoors.     This tradition was...

 If you ask me, we have this whole dessert thing backward. Brownies should be the first course to any meal as far as I’m concerned. Yep, I was that kid at the party who asked for the corner piece with the most icing. As I grew up and my metabolism slowed down, I can’t partake as I...

 This month marks the last issue that longtime member of our magazine family, Judie Byrd, will contribute her cooking column. I have never met anyone who loves to teach people to cook as much as Judie. As the co-founder of The Culinary School of Fort Worth, author of several cookbooks and host...

This 280-page April magazine marks our biggest issue ever. It was the efforts of a committed staff that made it all come together. While bigger doesn’t always mean better, I can promise that we over-delivered on quality features this month.     Before we get too carried away...

My mother gifted me my first cookbook when I was 13. On the inside cover, she inscribed, “Keep your pages clean, and don’t burn your fingers or the cookies.”  While great advice, I must admit that at some point over the last two decades, I have been unsuccessful in complying...

I wonder just how many funnel cakes I have consumed over the years while walking the midway at the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo. Too many to admit. But that wasn’t even my favorite part of our ritual visit. While I enjoyed viewing the livestock and always looked forward to the carnival...

I have to admit that usually my first thought when I walk into a nearly 6,000-square-foot home is, “Wow…it would take a lot of work to keep this place clean.” But once I get past that, I can really appreciate the space. This year’s Fort Worth, Texas magazine Dream Home is...

I grew up with parents who were educators. My dad taught and coached for a decade, and my mom has been teaching for more than 40 years. I can still hear the echoes of “You and I need to go to the store, NOT you and me need to go to the store” or “I did well on the exam, NOT I did...
