‘Tis the “Season with Swag”

This might be one of my favorite posts yet because I get to introduce you to a former (and forever!) student and friend of mine, Gevin Reynolds, who just wrote to me about his new culinary blog called Season with SWAG

(he, too, is an adamant advocate of alliteration!)

A true Renaissance Man with a myriad of talents, Gevin humbly pursues life with passion and his enormous heart.  He has done so since I’ve known him as a 7th grader in my English classroom, and now as a high school sophomore, he inspires me still.  While Gevin excels academically and in every avenue he pursues, he is also driven by exactly what moves him in his heart and soul — without apology and without fear of what others might say.  As you’ll see when you explore his blog, “Sir Gev” (as he’s been labeled by his beloved “Ms. T” since 7th grade!) is a talented musician on a variety of instruments and is now tuning more finely his culinary passions.

Subscribe to his blog, and you’ll find flavors and delicious recipes for such savory treats as:

Skirt Steak Carne Asada Tacos with Pico de Gallo and Cilantro Sour Cream (that even makes this new vegetarian’s mouth water!) and “Super Salmon,” whose marinade consists of  the beautiful, simple marriage of a few favorite ingredients:  olive oil, garlic (I always double or triple what a recipe calls for here!), rosemary, thyme, parsley, and a little “S & P” …


He also takes recipe requests, and you better believe that I’ll ask him to offer a concoction that suits my gluten-free, dairy-free, plant-based lifestyle!  I have no doubt that he is up for the challenge!

So…explore, savor, get your “SWAG” ON, and get to know this delightful young man AND his culinary arts!
