With Labor Day behind us, summer is unofficially over. It is still very hot here in Dallas, 103 F today, so forgive me if I am not ready to break into my fall comfort food recipes just quite yet. Peaches, for example, are still available at the farmer’s market and as long as they are […]

Sometimes I just can’t bear to turn on the oven. During the warmer months this is out of a desire to keep our humble little home cool. The kitchen, where I tend to spend most of my time believe it or not, is filled with lovely windows that give me a full view of our […]

On a hot summer day there is nothing better than a frosty beer. Beer was not always my libation of choice. In fact my love affair with beer is fairly recent, about 8 years old. It all began with Mexican beers served with plates of spicy Tex-Mex. Margaritas were always my first choice because I […]

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 […]

Bad things happen when I go shopping without a list. For the most part I am a responsible adult who makes well informed decisions base on facts and logic. I say for the most part because there are certainly areas where I struggle. Grocery shopping, for example, is an area where I can improve. This […]

Dear Pie, It has been a while, hasn’t it? It has been difficult to think about pie for the last few months because I spent the better part of a year writing two different cookbooks dedicated to the subject. From sweet to savory, and some pies that were a little of both, I was adrift […]

It was my first year to attend, and I had the distinct honor of speaking on the subject of Beating Blogger […]
