Butterscotch Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce

Friday, October 23, 2009

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 […]

Apple Bacon Fritters with Maple Bourbon Glaze

 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 […]

Irish Soda Bread

 I’ve said it before, and I will say it again.  Ireland changed my life. On my first night in Dublin my husband and I found a bustling pub in the Temple Bar District which served traditional Irish food.  Now, most pubs sell Guinness stew and soda bread, but this pub had bangers and mash, roasted […]

Buttermilk Biscuits

Tomorrow is the 4th of July here in the US, and I can think of no better way to celebrate our nation’s independence than with a hearty breakfast of flaky and tender buttermilk biscuits.   For years I struggled with buttermilk biscuits.  Drop biscuits I had down pat.  I could make batches of those fluffy little […]

Cinnamon Roll Bread

Is there anything more comforting than the smell of warm cinnamon rolls?  If there is, I can’t think of it right now.       While I love the traditional cinnamon roll, and believe me I do, I thought it would be fun to take my cinnamon roll dough and make it into a swirled […]

Grilled Mushroom and Ricotta Pizza on Sourdough Wheat Crust

I have been on something of a pizza kick lately, and not those commercially prepared pies with flavorless cheese and mushy veggies. I can directly pin-point when this all started.  It began at the Mushroom Council lunch when Chef Kent Rathburn made us a grilled mushroom pizza.  I knew in that moment that I would […]

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 […]

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 […]

Garlic Cheese Drop Biscuits

  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 […]

Bacon Cheddar Cheese Bread

 When I was in England last Fall I fell in love.    Not with a person, or even the land or the culture, however fantastic they all are.  No, I fell in love with the bacon.  In England they serve, almost exclusively, back bacon.  If you have never had this kind of bacon before it is a  […]
