Coconut Curry Shrimp with Spicy Peanut Noodles

Thursday, July 22, 2010

29 Comments

When I get a craving for something I want instant satisfaction. Ask anyone who had ever accompanied me to an amusement park, waited with me in line, or sat with me while we waited for a table at a restaurant.  Patience is not one of my virtues.  In fact, I get down right testy when […]

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Summer is in full swing, and that means in North Texas it is HOT, HOT, HOT! I am loathe to turn on the oven or stand over the stove when the temps are pushing 100F, but that does not mean I eat nothing but cold sandwiches and salads.  Oh no, what it means is instead […]

Cornbread Pudding

Tuesday, July 6, 2010

Now matter how hard I try to restrain myself, when it comes to holidays I always make too  much food. The 4th of July is no exception.  Since we typically have some sort of smoked meat on the 4th, usually of the pork variety, I feel compelled to make a big batch of cornbread to […]

Happy Cinco de Mayo!   Where I live May 5th is celebrated as a day to enjoy some tasty Tex-Mex or authentic Mexican food, have a few beers, and get together with friends and family.   I love Tex-Mex, which I think I have said before, so any excuse is a good when my favorite food […]

Baked Potato Salad

Last year I visited my family in Houston and while I was there I had my first taste of Baked Potato Dip.   It is a concoction of sour cream, mayonnaise, bacon bits, green onions, and cheddar cheese which is served with salty potato chips.   Overall the dip is pretty tasty and I have made […]

Zinfandel Braised Chicken Thighs with Mushrooms and Polenta

Monday, April 19, 2010

I am something of a comfort food junkie. I have discovered, over the last year, the delightful bliss that is polenta.  I have also discovered that I am passionately in love with chicken thighs.  So, when I was craving something rich, creamy, and comforting the other night I decided to take my two new comfort […]

Mushroom Risotto

When the weather turns cold and the wind begins to howl, nothing warms me up faster than a bowl of creamy risotto. Shockingly, I have never had Risotto until last year!  To be honest with you, it was always the last thing I considered ordering because I love pasta so much, but one night at […]

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, […]

Jalapeno Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms

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 […]

Tex-Mex Macaroni and Cheese

Make no mistake, I adore macaroni and cheese. I have posted a recipe here before and it is sublime. It is one of my favorite things to eat, and I love to tinker with my original recipe and see what new variations I can come up with.   This new recipe combines macaroni and cheese […]
