Fresh Pumpkin, Apple and Oat Muffins

Friday, October 30, 2009

15 Comments

It’s time for gourds and squash to fill up the produce markets! This year I decided to make my own pumpkin puree.  I was inspired by a whole brigade of fellow bloggers who have been posting yummy looking recipes with their fresh pumpkin.  Who am I to buck the trend?  If they could, so could […]

Four Cheese Potato Gratin

Sometimes you just need potatoes. We eat a fair amount of potatoes in my house.  They are versatile, easy to prepare and really the best starchy comfort food going, aside from macaroni and cheese which is the king of comfort food as far as I am concerned. All that said, I do get a little tired […]

Triple Citrus Skirt Steak

I love a good juicy steak.   One of my favorite cuts of beef is the skirt steak.  It is so flavorful, and if prepared properly it is very tender and juicy.  For the most part I use skirt steak for fajitas, and it does make some spectacular fajitas, but when I came across a […]

Butterscotch Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce

I’ve discussed inspiration here a few times, and I admit mine comes from the strangest places. This bit of inspiration hit in my local grocery store’s rather dismal bakery section.  Let’s be honest, grocery store bakeries are bleak places stuffed with pre-fab cakes smothered with greasy icing, cookie pucks, and pies with what can best […]

Pancetta Risotto Cakes and Some Exciting News

I have some VERY exciting news!! A few weeks ago FoodBuzz and Bertolli Sauce had a contest.  They wanted two menu items, an appetizer and a main dish, that used Bertolli Sauce products.  The winners would have their travel and hotel accommodations paid for to the First Annual FoodBuzz Festival.   How awesome is that? The […]

Pasta with Gruyere and Butternut Squash

I’ve said before that butternut squash and I were not always such good friends. Once I discovered that I did not hate butternut squash – I liked it quite a lot in fact – I began to try new recipes so that I could add this tasty squash into my Fall recipe rotation.  This recipe was […]

Caramel Cake with Cinnamon Vanilla Bean Cream Cheese Frosting

So, the recipe for Bourbon Caramel Apple Pie Cookies contains a recipe that yields well over a cup of caramel sauce.    That is a lot more caramel than you really need.  Never fear, I have an elegant solution for what to do with the extra caramel that does not require two pints of ice cream and a marathon of my favorite Marilyn Monroe […]

Roasted Butternut Squash, Sweet Potato and Maple Soup

I was not really a big fan of butternut squash until last winter.     Not that there is anything wrong with it, but I had only ever had it baked or steamed with some butter.  BORING!  So, I decided to try adding butternut squash into different recipes.  I figured out pretty early on I liked […]

Bourbon Caramel Apple Pie Cookies

Here in North Texas we have had something of a cold snap.  By cold I mean temps that range from upper 40′s to mid-60′s.  I know there are those who snicker at my definition of cold snap, but here in my neck of the woods this is December weather. All this cool weather has put […]

Orange Cheesecake Cookies

There is something of a joke in my family about cream cheese.   You see, my father loves the stuff.  I’ve seen him eat it on crackers, with salsa, on chips, or even plain.  Whenever he tries a new recipe, inevitably, his first comment is that it does not have enough cream cheese.  (Most of […]
