Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

Monday, November 30, 2009

17 Comments

On a recent trip to visit my Great Aunt Ruby I had the opportunity to copy down a few more family recipes. One of the recipes was for an oatmeal raisin cookie made with coconut and cocoa powder.  It sounded unique and I jotted it down to play with later.  Well,  later came sooner than […]

I’ll […]

Butter Croissants

Ready for something a tad more advanced?  It takes time to make, but it is SO worth it. I fell in love with croissant making a few semesters ago in my Laminated Dough class.  Bread making is among my favorite things to do in the kitchen, but making laminated doughs (doughs with butter sandwiched between […]

Make no mistake, I adore macaroni and cheese. I have posted a recipe here before and it is sublime. It is one of my favorite things to eat, and I love to tinker with my original recipe and see what new variations I can come up with.   This new recipe combines macaroni and cheese […]

Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie

Growing up we would go to Houston for Thanksgiving and spend it with my mom’s family. We would always have Thanksgiving dinner at my Aunt Ruby’s house, because she had the largest dining room, and the food was always spectacular. Of course, as a child all I was only interested in stuffing, rolls, macaroni and […]

Slow-Cooker Braised Short Ribs with Honey Garlic Glaze

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

Braising is one of my favorite ways to prepare tough cuts of meat. This slow method of cooking breaks down the connective tissues and fat making otherwise tough cuts of meat tender, juicy, and very flavorful.  I almost feel bad for people who have no idea how wonderful cheap cuts can be.  Of the cheap […]

I don’t know about you but after a long day at work, or a busy day out and about, the last thing I want is dinner that takes any kind of effort to prepare.  This is about as easy as they come. That is why I love, and adore, chicken legs!  They make dinner so easy.  […]

Warning, this is a photo heavy post!  Why?? This weekend was the First Annual FoodBuzz Blogger Festival!     I arrived to a somewhat gloomy, and slightly damp, afternoon in San Francisco.  Our flight, which was blessedly smooth, was on time and we arrived at our hotel just after lunch.    Thanks to Bertolli my hotel, air […]

Tex-Mex Potato Cheese Soup

Monday, November 9, 2009

I’ve established that I used to be in a potato rut.  No longer, I am happy to report, and this recipe proves it. Potato soup is something I love to eat but never really make.   The last recipe I tried made a large pot of what can best be described as wall paper paste.  So, […]
