Bourbon Bacon Jam

I have been meaning to make this recipe for a long while now. Ever since Kevin on Top Chef and Lisa at Homesick Texan made their versions of bacon jam I have been dreaming of the day when I would make mine.  Like any jam you can make it any flavor you like best.  I […]

Cream of Chicken Soup

I always forget how easy soups are to make.     One of my favorite soups is cream of chicken.  For the longest time I would buy the soup from the deli of the grocery store because I quite simply never thought to make it myself.  I am kicking myself about it now because not only […]

Beef Empanadas

When I entertain I like to have a wide variety of foods available to snack on.  It keeps things from getting boring and it keeps the palate active. So, when I plan a party of a gathering where little bites will be served I always make something with a Tex-Mex flair.  These empanadas are the perfect […]

Do you remember a few months ago when I posted that a recipe I created won a contest and the prize was a trip to San Francisco? At the time I was not able to share the recipe due to the ‘super-secret’ nature of the contest.  Well, the contest is over and I am free to share, […]

Crab Cake Dip

I am not a big fan of crab in a general sense.  In fact I am not a fan of shellfish overall. That said, I love, and have always loved, crab cakes.  I like the mix of flavors, the different textures, and I find the creaminess of the crab mixture hard to resist.  So, in […]

Let’s talk about party food, shall we? When I host, or attend and help cook for, a cocktail party I like to think about finger foods and two-bite dishes that are easy to eat, pretty and not too messy.   I like savory dishes that stand up to a variety of cocktails and beers, and nothing […]

I joined a CSA in my area at the beginning of the Fall.   So far the harvest has not been prolific.  In fact, in the two months I have been a member I have gotten one delivery.  Not awesome.  Buried in the delivery was a terrific surprise!  Lovely, shiny eggplants!   I decided to […]

There are certain foods that I crave and am completely unable to resist.    One of those foods is queso blanco.  This creamy cheese dip is finding its way on to the menus of  Tex-Mex restaurants next to the traditional orange chili con queso.  It is made with a variety of white cheeses and spices depending on where […]

  I was reading Closet Cooking today, a wonderful blog by the way and a must read, and he had a recipe for Jalapeno Popper Dip posted which set my mouth to full water.  It is at this point where I must tell you that I love dips, warm dips especially, and I knew that I […]
