This post comes to you from damply beautiful Seattle, Washington! Yes, kids, I am in Seattle for BlogHer Food 2012 and not just as an attendee, but I am speaking! I am nervous, but terribly excited, and ready to get the party started! The last month has been a CRAZY travel month for me. First, […]

Fully Loaded Beer Bread

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 […]

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

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]
