Howdy y’all!  Welcome to Texas! One evening, while feeling particularly full of myself, I submitted a proposal for Foodbuzz’s montlhy 24, 24, 24 event.  For those of you reading who do not know what 24, 24, 24 is I’ll give you the short version.  24 bloggers have 24 food events over 24 hours.  Fun, right?

Raspberry Chipotle Swirl Cupcakes

Friday, May 29, 2009

If you were to ask me what my favorite flavor of the moment was, I would answer, “Chipotle!”   Dried and smoked jalapenos are magic, and they reach super-nova status when incorporated into sweet applications.  Like Vern’s Raspberry Chipotle Jelly, which is sweet and spicy.  I have used it to fill danish, spread it inside […]

Chipotle Gouda Cornbread

Do you impulse buy?   I do.   My impulse buys are most often food related.  Last week I discovered a really great local cheese shop, Scardello Artisan Cheese, in Dallas and I could not help but go in and shop.  I got some terribly expensive, and very tasty, sea salt caramels, some disappointing dark chocolate, and […]

Beef Enchiladas

My husband, despite coming from Chicago originally, likes Tex-Mex food a lot.  He does not, however, like cheese and onion enchiladas.   It is the cheese that he objects to, not the enchiladas themselves, so because I love him I make him beef enchiladas when I make cheese and onion  for myself.    Beef enchiladas are simple, but I wondered […]

Bananas Foster Cream Pie

Sometimes, when the stars align and the wind blows just right, I come up with something so good it shocks everyone, including me. This pie is one such idea.  You see I had a party to attend for my mom.  She said, “Oh, just make whatever you like.  I’m sure it will be fine.”  Saying […]

Apple Blueberry Quick Bread

   It is that time of year.  Fruit is starting to come into the market that looks fresh and ripe, the weather is warmer, and my thoughts turn to baking.   I was at the market a few days ago and tucked behind a box of huge strawberries were these really beautiful blueberries.   They were on […]

Turkey Meatballs with Quick Tomato Cream Sauce

Monday, May 18, 2009

 There are some days when I crave meatballs, but I do not crave the fat content contained in most recipes.   Not that I am afraid of fat.  Quite the opposite, I adore fat, but some nights I want something a little lighter.  That, however, does not mean I want to sacrifice flavor.  That is why […]

Mocha Cheesecake

My mother loves chocolate and she loves coffee.  She loves them almost as much as I do.   So, when Mother’s Day rolled around this year I decided to make my mom a mocha cheesecake.  There is something special about the tangy cream cheese and the rich mocha flavor combined.  One contrasts the other, yet combined they work so […]

Spiced Butter Poached Shrimp

I love shrimp.  Once upon a time I only ate them fried, but now that I am older and wiser I like them grilled, baked, and boiled also.    While watching television the other night I saw a segment about a restaurant that poaches their shrimp in a spiced butter.  They did not say what the […]

Onion, Apple, and Bacon Tart

I love savoury tarts. They are so nice for lunches, light dinners and are perfect for a brunch.  What I love about a savoury tart, aside from how nice they are to eat, is how you can vary the fillings to suit your taste and what you have on hand. This tart was born out […]
