The idea of race as a single box to be checked on a form is disappearing. As America’s racial middle ground shifts, census racial categories become not so black and white.

The gist: Founded by cousins Gilbert Cuellar, Jr., John Cuellar and Cory Cuellar, the new Cuellars' Fajita Ranch is now open in Plano. The menu blends Tex-Mex and Texas-style favorites for a new hybrid the family has dubbed "Ranch Mex." Growing up on his family ranch, Gilbert was raised ...

artful connector of good people and ideas
I'm Catherine Cuellar, an award-winning journalist. Among my honors? "Best Halloween Costume," when I dressed as Elliott from E.T. — wearing my red hoodie, riding my 1972 Schwinn 3-speed cruiser, and bribing judges with Reese's Pieces. That was in 2005. As a child, I won a plane trip to Disneyland on the "Duck One" with Donald, Daisy, Mickey, and Minnie. Then in 2006, I sang at Carnegie Hall. Each fall at the State Fair of Texas, I get to judge the cobbler, biscuit and chocolate cooking contests. But I haven't always been so lucky. I broke my ankle in the U.S. days prior to my scheduled departure for a hike across Africa. (I went anyway.) I also rollerbladed into a tree, giving myself a black eye on the eve of a job interview. (I didn't get an offer.) However, I don't see those missteps (or rather, mis-skates) as accidents; I prefer to think of myself as "opportunity-prone."

Days begin beautifully here. Serving pour over coffee, espresso drinks, tea, and fresh baked pastries still warm from the oven are delicious as they are beautiful. The perfect place for a downtown breakfast meeting, with indoor or patio seating and ample self parking in the adjacent lot.

Our dog Pepper loves going to Pawliday Inn for grooming, day care, or boarding. She is known for finding ways to engage all the small dogs in her play group, and management texts us heart melting photos of her and her buddies. Her summer cut has her looking sharp and smelling sweet. We live within walking distance, and her tail starts wagging with excitement as soon as she can hear the barking of other dogs at play. Their staff has even taught her good manners. She comes home happy and spent from all the exercise she gets. We are loyal fans.

Because it is in Terminal D but outside security, this is a fine place for those from outside DFW to await arrivals or visit with travelers during a long layover. Food is tasty is a bit overpriced. It is currently in the midst of renovation, so seating is limited, carpets are stained, upholstery is frayed and restrooms are less accessible — for now.
