Chocolate Filled Pecan Shortbread Sandwich Cookies

Monday, May 14, 2012

May and June are all about travel. My first bit or travel has come and gone. I spent a weekend in the mountains of California eating, drinking, learning, and making friends at Camp Blogaway! It was my first year to attend, and I had the distinct honor of speaking on the subject of Beating Blogger […]

Blueberry Maple Drop Biscuits

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

16 Comments

Nothing beats a well made biscuit. When I first started to get interested in cooking I spent a lot of time learning about southern comfort foods.  I was raised by two generations of Texas women who grew up on southern food, so the food of my childhood leaned heavily toward traditional, stick-to-your-ribs fare.  Biscuits were […]

Chocolate Chip Cardamom Oat Blondies

I have been something of a baby lately. As you may know, I have been on a medical scavenger hunt for almost two months now.  I have already endured numerous tests, trips to the emergency room, and visits to doctors and specialists.  For as long as I can remember I have hated doctors.  I may […]

Chocolate Glazed Coconut Cream Puffs

No matter the problem, I feel like cream puffs are always the solution. With February firmly behind me I was really looking forward to a new month not riddled with medical issues for both me and my family.  We did not get off to an encouraging start, with my husband battling a hacking cough and […]

Cinnamon Pecan Swirl Monkey Bread

Happy Leap Day! February has been one bitch of a month for me personally, so to celebrate the end of it I decided to bake something really, really naughty.  I was inspired by monkey bread, a heavenly concoction of cinnamon sugar covered dough that is baked in a sticky brown sugar and butter sauce.  The […]

Glazed Yuzu Pound Cakes

Last week I discovered that my local specialty market carries fresh yuzu when they are in season.   I have never seen it fresh before, we usually only get the bottled juice if we are lucky, so I snatched up a few for experimenting.  When I got them home and presented them to my husband, […]

Apple Cherry Oat Bars

So, the New Year is well underway and so many people I know are keen to eat healthy. I have nothing against eating a well balanced diet that incorporates healthy ingredients and cooking techniques with occasional indulgences thrown in to keep cravings in check.  In fact, that is how I try to live my life […]

Chocolate Mint Filled Shortbread Snowballs

Get ready, I am going to get my whine on.  I know it is the holidays, but I am not feeling it. First off, my tree is 99% decorated.  I am afraid of heights, and my tree requires the use of a ladder to decorate the top.  I have not screwed up my courage (or […]

Cranberry Bourbon Christmas Cake

I’m not going to lie … this is a highfalutin fruit cake. Every year I make a fruit cake.  I find I really like them around the holidays.  There is something comforting about a booze soaked slice of cake which has been festooned with fruits and nuts.  (Yes, I said festooned.  It is a great […]

Chocolate Chip Coconut ‘Awesome’ Bars

Wednesday, December 7, 2011

21 Comments

I was kind of half joking on Twitter when I said that I would call these ‘Awesome Bars’. It turns out they are really quite awesome so I felt no qualms about adding it to the title.  So, what are ‘Awesome Bars,’ you might ask?.  Well, they are a dense, buttery cake bottom with a […]
