Another year draws to a close. 2013 was a big year for me in many ways. Lots of life changing events. The most important of these was in February when I lost my beautiful, and always inspiring, Aunt Ruby. I still can’t really believe she is gone. If you know me at all you know […]

You know I love chocolate, right? What I do not love is how commercial candy is loaded with processed, synthetic, and downright yucky ingredients. So, when you love candy like I do you can either stop eating candy, or you can make your own. Guess which option worked best for me? My friend Andrew over […]

Do you prefer sweet or savory? It has been a little while since I posted something savory. As much as I love sweets, I love savory more! When I was little I used to love savory appetizers and bite-sized treats – especially if they feature cheese! My mother used to make cheese crackers during the […]

Well, how was your 2012? All-in-all, mine was pretty fantastic! My mom survived a medical scare, and this is what I am most grateful for, but other bright spots include the release of my two latest cookbooks, speaking at Camp Blogaway and BlogHer Food, and discovering that  – after cleaning out 12 garbage bags of […]

Do you know about October Unprocessed? Well, Andrew Wilder over at Eating Rules created a challenge – one month of clean eating meaning you cut out processed foods and eat whole, natural, real food. I love real food! I can’t remember the last time I used a packaged product, or something with insane ingredients, to […]

I am not usually happy to see summer go. Summer fruits and berries are leaving the markets. Just thinking about the end of peach makes me terribly sad! In Texas this time of year also means you have to keep an eye on the weather. One day it will be warm and sticky, the next […]

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 […]

This has been an exciting week for me! I am so happy to let you know that I am going to write a second cookbook!  It will be another book about pies, because you can’t have too much pie I suppose, but this book will be different than the last in that it will focus […]
