Chocolate Chip and Candied Bacon Pancakes with Nutella Maple Syrup

Wednesday, February 9, 2011

86 Comments

Valentine’s Day is coming. We do not really celebrate Valentine’s Day here at Casa Shenanigans.  No heart shaped boxes of candy, no bunches of wilted grocery store roses, and no adult-sized footie pajamas in the mail.  No, we do not celebrate with silly tokens.  We celebrate with food.  Sometimes we go out, but more often […]

Steak Chili

I think we got about eight inches of snow overnight. Some of you may read that and say, ‘So what?’  So plenty!  You see, this is Dallas and in these parts even the lightest dusting of the white stuff can bring our bustling metropolis to a screeching halt.  Imaging what four days of ice, topped […]

Crab Jalapeno Hushpuppies

I love hushpuppies. I mean, who does not like golden grown, deep fried balls of delicious cornbread?  When I was growing up we had them with fried fish and shrimp dinners and they were the item I ate most greedily.  These days I make hushpuppies for all sorts of occasions and I have found they […]

Over the weekend I went to Food Blog South, a celebration of Southern food and Southern bloggers. This first time conference was, overall, a wonderful experience and I highly recommend those interested in the food culture of the South to consider attending their next event.  Our lunch during the conference was a favorite of mine […]

Jalapeno Cheddar Pigs in Blankets

Thursday, January 20, 2011

49 Comments

Ok, sometimes you need things … I am serious when I say need. A few days ago I was discussing pigs in blankets with some friends on the Twitter.  It became apparent to me that, despite our love of the finer things, a good old-fashioned pig in a blanket could reduce us to children.  Happy, […]

Cream Cheese Pancakes with Smoked Salmon

The end of the year is rapidly approaching, and it is time to plan those New Years Eve parties! This year, like every year, I will spend the evening with my family before returning home to ring in the new year with my husband and dogs.  It is our little tradition.  My mom serves the […]

Chorizo Dip

I find when guests come to visit that a good dip can make the evening. I’m not sure what it is exactly about dip that is so enticing, but I do know that a good dip recipe, or two, can be a life saver.  Perhaps it is the communal aspect of dips, the fact that […]

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 […]

Bacon Dill Potato Salad

The holidays are not always frosty and cold. Sometimes they are downright warm! At least they are in the Dallas area.  Sure, last year we enjoyed a white Christmas, but our typical Christmas is spent in often balmy 70 degree weather.  When I plan my Christmas Day meal I pay close attention to the weather.  […]

Cornbread Topped Turkey and Green Chile Casserole

The day after Thanksgiving I tend to bag up some of my left-over turkey and freeze it. I love knowing that I have, in my freezer, the means to make any number of easy weeknight meals.  From pot pies to tetrazzini, frozen turkey meat is a good thing to have on hand.  This year I […]
