I was thrilled to be selected as one of the lucky bloggers to test the new Riserva pasta’s from Buitoni.  I got a pack of the Wild Mushroom Agnolotti and I was tasked with coming up with a sauce to compliment the pasta. This is a wild mushroom pasta, and I love the combination of […]

When I have overnight guests I like to treat them to something special for breakfast. Usually that means I break out the cast iron skillet and fry some sausage, use the drippings for sausage gravy that is poured over buttermilk biscuits and served with some fried eggs and home fries.  Guests from outside of Texas, or the […]

Apple and Blueberry Crisp

  I’ve been making crisps since I was a child.  They were one of the first things I learned to bake so they are special to me in the way a first love is special.   I find that when the last of winter is behind me I start to crave fresh fruit desserts, and since […]

Chicken Tenders

Where I come from there is a saying.  Everything is better deep fried.  While I do not subscribe to the idea that EVERYTHING is better deep fried, I do know that the humble chicken breast is very tasty deep fried.  Very, very tasty indeed! My mom taught me to deep fry a few months after […]

Almond and Chocolate Filled Butter Cookies

If given the choice of any dessert I want, I almost always pick the cookie.  I adore them.  During the Holidays I tend to eat and bake so many cookies that I get a little tired of them and I can’t stand to make them until Spring is fully underway.  These cookies have a delicious secret hidden in them.  […]

  Often when I make dinner I skip any kind of bread item.  It isn’t that I don’t like bread with dinner, on the contrary I love bread with every meal, but I usually forget to make or buy bread and so we skip it.  I justify it by thinking of all the calories I […]

You came here for french fries, and french fries you shall get … but first something fun! On Easter I was given a very special award from the very lovely, and talented beyond belief, Half Baked Baker! She passed along to me the following award:  “These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to […]

Dark Chocolate Chip Brownies

If you do not like chocolate jam packed inside a fudgy brownie, turn back now!   This recipe is adapted from one we made in culinary school.  The brownies we made were ok, but we did not use dark chocolate or dutch processed cocoa powder.  I do and the result is superior.  There is also […]

  I was reading Closet Cooking today, a wonderful blog by the way and a must read, and he had a recipe for Jalapeno Popper Dip posted which set my mouth to full water.  It is at this point where I must tell you that I love dips, warm dips especially, and I knew that I […]

Maple and Bacon Muffins

I am a bacon devotee.  I’m not sure if you have noticed, but I love the stuff!  That’s why when I was challenged to create a sweet and savoury bacon muffin I jumped at the challenge!   But, this is a tale of sadness, regret, but eventual triumph!  Two months ago, on a cold January […]
