Chocolate Spice Cake With Brown Butter Frosting

Wednesday, September 30, 2009

30 Comments

Welcome Fall!!   It is not exactly cool here, but we have had three days where the temps have stayed cool enough for the air to be crisp, and that puts me in a Fall baking mood!  I decided to break out all the ingredients for a spice cake when a bar of dark chocolate […]

Crunchy Baked Chicken with Orzo in White Wine Sauce

I love easy meals that look and taste like a million bucks. I can make this meal in thirty minutes or less, it tastes great, and it is nice enough for weeknight guests. Bonus! During the week I refuse to fry, so when I want something super crunchy I turn to my oven and panko […]

Living so close to the Mexican border you would think you would get more authentic Mexican food, but we really don’t.  We get a lot of really yummy Tex-Mex, the fusion of Mexican flavors with Southwestern ingredients and traditional cowboy cooking methods. There are times, however, when I crave the food of Mexico.  In particular […]

Fresh Pasta – Mushroom Ricotta Ravioli

I had often wondered how hard fresh, homemade, pasta would be to prepare.  In my mind I imagined that it would be an all day process.  I was wrong.   That said, I did use a pasta roller to roll the pasta into sheets.  That made the process SO easy.  If you have to roll […]

 I love doughnuts.  There is something wonderfully fun about fried dough smothered in a sweet glaze.  Doughnuts are perfect for parties, meetings, brunches, and breakfasts with a hot cup of coffee.   If you have never had a homemade doughnut you really must try one.  They are pretty easy to make, you can even make […]

Would you believe me if I told you stuffed chicken was something you could make during the week?   I would not have believed you until now.  This is the perfect make ahead dinner, just get the chicken breasts stuffed and trussed and stash in the fridge for dinner up to two days ahead.  If […]

Peach Upside-down Cake

 As Summer winds down, and we start to see the Summer fruit dwindle in the stores, I find that I am on one last Summer dessert push.     I know, in a few shorts weeks, that the fresh Summer peaches will be replaces with the depressing peaches we get most of the year.  I am […]
