Hello and welcome to The Travel Palate! I'm Nikole and I obsess about food so you don't have to.
I am a self-taught home cook and my recipes are easy to make, reliable, and most of all delicious!
What you'll find on The Travel Palate
- Main Dish Recipes that are easy to prepare on busy weeknights.
- Desserts that are perfect for family celebrations.
- Mexican and Tex Mex Recipes inspired by my regional cuisine.
- Air Fryer Recipes that are quick and convenient.
My recipes are made from easy to find ingredients. I do most of my shopping at large chain grocery stores like Target, Walmart, and the like. I always include substitution suggestions too, just in case!
I also include step by step instructions and process photos to help demonstrate how recipes are put together. My recipes aren't complicated, but sometimes it just helps to see it in action.
Every recipe you see on the blog has been photographed, tested...and tested by yours truly. My family and friends are my taste testers and nothing makes it onto the blog unless they have proclaimed it "blog worthy".
A Little Bit About Me
I'm a wife and mom with over 20 years of experience as the head chef of our family. Whether I'm making dinner on the fly or planning for large holiday and family gatherings, I'm always using these opportunities to create great tasting food that my family and your family will love.
We live in North Central Texas where beef, BBQ, and Tex Mex reign. Many of my recipes reflect my love for our regional cooking.
My other passion in life is travel! I love exploring places through food and get a ton of inspiration when traveling in the American melting pot and abroad.
I was exposed to all kinds of food as a kid. My mom was born and raised in Japan and my dad in Ohio. That meant a delicious variety of Asian cuisine along with hearty and comforting midwest fare was always cooking up in the kitchen.
When I was around 7, we settled in the southwest in a town that sits along the Rio Grande on the frontera or border with Mexico and New Mexico. I grew up eating authentic Mexican food, border style Tex Mex, and a lot of New Mexican green and red chile!
Being bi-racial and growing up in a culturally diverse part of the US has certainly inspired a love for unique flavors and a curiosity of culture and international cuisine.
