About Us

Texas Table Top celebrates the foods, places and people that make the Lone Star State great.

Our team of contributors work for Texas Farm Bureau, the largest farm and ranch organization in the state of Texas. We’re in the field and on the road all the time, and Texas Table Top will share with you some of the great recipes, interesting tidbits and spots for the best Texas fare that we pick up along the way. We’ll also show you where our food comes from and introduce you to the Texans who grow it.

So, feel free to stop by often and make yourself at home. Leave a comment, tell us why you love the Lone Star State – or just try out a new dish for dinner tonight.

Thanks for visiting Texas Table Top!

Kelly Bogard

Kelly Bogard is the official Texas Table Top food editor, chef, food stylist/photographer and more. When she’s not busy cooking up a delicious recipe for Texas Table Top, she and her husband “D” are busy trying to keep up with their daughter “Butters” and enjoy anything outdoors. Contact Kelly at kbogard@txfb.org, @kbogard on Twitter or Kelly Bogard on Facebook.

Julie Tomascik, Assistant Editor, Texas Farm Bureau

Julie Tomascik prefers the outdoors to the kitchen, because there’s no better feeling than dirt under her feet or wind whipping through her hair. But she’s slowly learning her way around the kitchen. Contact Julie at jtomascik@txfb.org or @julietomascik on Twitter.

Jessica Domel

Jessica Domel, queen of the cupcakes, is from Stephenville or Georgetown, depending on how you look at it, and loves to experiment in the kitchen. After feeding dozens of hungry firemen for five years, she’s found that the best way to perfect a recipe is to just keep trying, no matter what sort-of disaster strikes in the kitchen.
