W e've discovered another foodinista in our own backyard — and she has news. Prosper resident Jocelyn Delk Adams debuted her second cookbook, Everyday Grand: Soulful Recipes for Celebrating Life's Big and Small Moments: A Cookbook (Clarkson Potter) last month. Given her mantra that every day needs to be celebrated, you'll find recipes that are jazzed and kicked-up a notch. The media darling behind the Grandbaby Cakes blog, which D eborah and John Scott and Megan and Brady Wood, founders of Park House Dallas, are opening a Houston version of Park House, their coveted private social club, in Highland Park Village. The Houston club opens in December on the top floor of 4411 San Felipe, in 25,000 square feet. "The Houston club is Dallas on steroids," Deborah says. Like Dallas, the interiors will be designed by Los Angeles design firm Studio Collective, which also gave the Dallas club its youthful, sophisticated vibe with contemporary residential-style spaces. Houston will feature new rooms such as The Bali Room, The Snug, and what Deborah dubs a Secret Speak Easy. That's in addition to three all-day dining areas, multiple private dining rooms, and living and library rooms for socializing. For Dallas Park House members, whose reciprocal OBSESSIONS. DECORATION. SALIENT FACTS. Park House Dallas Jocelyn Delk Adams clubs include Houston, perks include private executive workspaces and suites located one floor below. Rebecca Sherman has a fan base of over a million readers, is a regular contributor on the Today show and Good Morning America. Here, her go-to sources. Billy Fong Butcher: Rudolph's Meat Market and Sausage Factory. It's truly an institution in Dallas and was recommended to me when I moved here. Produce: The Farmers Market of Grapevine not only has some of the very best growers in all of Texas, but they can order absolutely anything you need. Every item is picture- perfect. Great for me … I need hero shots of recipes for my website, videos, and cookbooks. Gas or electric: Gas, 100 percent. However, my grandmother had electric in her Mississippi kitchen, and I loved everything she cooked. Hosting tip: A great playlist is essential to creating and maintaining top energy. Best song while baking a cake: "Happy Feeli'ns,'" Frankie Beverly and Maze. Favorite Dallas restaurant: Roots Southern Table, because it reminds me of the good old- fashioned comfort food I grew up with, but with such a special flair. The jerk lamb chops and Hoppin' John have me closing my eyes and humming a tune with each bite. Essential appliance: KitchenAid stand mixer. I use it almost every day, and the attachments make it one of the most universal appliances known to man. Where does inspiration strike: It randomly strikes in my nightly bubble bath. These are my Zen moments where I calm my brain after an exhausting day. When I quiet my mind, the ideas flow! CLUBHOUSE CONFIDENTIAL SECRET SOURCES: JOCELYN DELK ADAMS 24
