Crab Jalapeno Hushpuppies

Monday, January 31, 2011

43 Comments

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 […]

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.  […]

Roasted Butternut Squash Casserole

Monday, November 15, 2010

I love nothing more than a creamy, cheesy casserole. When you strike the right balance between healthy vegetables and cheesy sauce it is a thing of beauty.  Butternut squash is my favorite winter squash.  With a mild, slightly sweet flavor it is perfect for roasting, blending into soups, and baking into casseroles.  The mild flavor […]

I am exhausted. Project Food Blog has been, and continues to be, intense, I’ve had friends in from out of the country, I have four family birthdays coming up, and I am still working three part-time jobs.  On top of it all looms the specter of Thanksgiving and all the preparation that entails.  I am […]

Bacon Dressed Green Beans

I have the secret for making EVERY vegetable, as long as you are a carnivore, taste better. It is not a very well kept secret, since EVERYONE knows about bacon.  This recipe started out as green bean bundles from a cookbook I borrowed from my mother.  The beans were blanched then slow roasted which left […]

I always carry with me a book I call my ‘Inspiration Book’. This is the place where I jot down ideas, or flavors, so when I get back to my home kitchen I remember what it was, exactly, that inspired me.  This little book has served me well, and it is directly responsible for this […]

Paneer Potato Cakes

23 Comments

In the last few months I have discovered a few new ingredients that I absolutely love! The first of these is a spice called asafoetida, a deeply pungent smelling spice that, when cooked, adds a smooth onion flavor.   A little of this spice makes a big difference as far as complexity of flavor is concerned.  […]
