Boudin and Green Pepper Quiche

Breakfast for a crowd can be something of a nightmare. It is not that I dislike having people over – far from it – but when it is breakfast we are talking about it can get a little tense, especially if eggs are involved.  Cooking eggs in a manner that appeals to everyone is a […]

Peach Cream Pie

I recently went on a road trip to Hot Springs, Arkansas. One of my road trip rules is to find off-the-beaten-path places to eat.  I prefer to eat where the locals eat, since they often have the most unique, and tastiest, food.   Why eat at a chain place, or, even worse, a fast food window?  […]

Ahhh, fresh blueberries! One of the best parts of spring is the arrival in the markets of fresh, plump berries.  I always get the itch to make a tart or pie with fresh berries at this time of year, and while shopping I also sampled some excellent fromage blanc.  I decided instantly that they would […]

I am a sucker for peanut butter desserts. I love peanut butter cookies, peanut butter fudge, hot peanut butter poured over ice cream, spicy peanut sauce … you name a culinary application for peanut butter and I most likely love it.  So, it should come as no great surprise that, while I found myself whisking  […]

Ready for some new shenanigans?  How about we start with pie?    When I first started cooking I used to make something called “Oreo Pie”.  It was made with an Oreo crust, chocolate and vanilla instant pudding, and whipped topping.  It was easy, it tasted pretty good, and when sliced it looked fairly impressive.  That pie […]

Growing up we would go to Houston for Thanksgiving and spend it with my mom’s family. We would always have Thanksgiving dinner at my Aunt Ruby’s house, because she had the largest dining room, and the food was always spectacular. Of course, as a child all I was only interested in stuffing, rolls, macaroni and […]

Inspiration comes from a lot of places.  Sometimes it is a basket of fresh fruit, sometimes it is a picture, and sometimes it is a television show.   Last week, while watching Gordon Ramsay’s The F Word, inspiration struck in the form of an apple tart.  Gordon baked sliced apples on a round of puff […]
