Orange Honey Pound Cake

I’m celebrating spring with cake! Spring in Texas is part beauty and part terror. The beauty comes from the wildflowers that spring to life, seemingly overnight, along the roads and in fields. I drove down to Houston last weekend and was dazzled by fields filled to bursting with vivid Bluebonnets, Indian Paint Brushes, and Buttercups. […]

Sweet Potato Apple Crumb Coffee Cake

Good heavens, the holidays are nearly here! Where did the year go? I feel like I just took down my Christmas decorations, and now they need to go back up. I’m really not ready for it this year. Rather than ‘ho ho ho’, I feel ‘ho ho ho-hum’. Some years I get filled with the […]

Sometimes nothing but a cupcake will do. There is something appealing about a pretty little cake that is just for you. With large cakes you feel almost obligated to share because they are big and meant for sharing. Let’s be honest, who wants to be the person who ate the whole cake? And what about […]

Do you think the person you are today would make the 8 year old you happy? I have been contemplating this question, wondering if the child I was would be truly happy with the adultI have become. Would the little girl who dreamed of being an opera singer be content with writing recipes and shooting […]

There is one word to describe my life right now – Busy! I have had a lot going on on various fronts -  some good some bad – and I feel like I have spent more time on the road than at home these last few weeks. Rather than bore you with the gory details […]

I have a new love in my life and it is Blood Orange Liqueur. If you have never had blood orange liqueur you need to immediately! My brand of choice is Solerno. The flavor is mild and not overly sweet, and it tastes like fresh blood orange juice but with a distinct – and potent […]

I recently attended Mixed on a scholarship* provided by Lucky Leaf. Mixed was an intimate conference, only about 100 bloggers, and it was different and a lot of fun. There were some hands-on cookie and cake decorating demos, sessions on food styling that did not pull ANY punches, parties every night, and movies and snacks […]

I try to keep a well stocked pantry. I never want to be without ingredients like vanilla, spices, chocolate chips, oats, dry fruit, and many other items I deem essential to my happiness. My well stocked, and organized, pantry has made many a recipe on this site possible. Let’s face it, I am a lazy […]

Goodness, summer has come in with something of a bang! Coming from Texas I am used to the heat, and I sort of perversely look forward to summer baking. Yes, the oven makes the house hot but if you plan it just right you can get a cake baked before the heat of the day […]
