Texas Peach Cheesecake

Thursday, September 4, 2014

Summer is pretty much over. Let’s have one last peachy hurrah! I have made this cheesecake about 6 times this summer for various birthday’s, special occasions, and parties. It disappeared in record time! This is a dense, silky cheesecake with a very creamy center. If you love peaches,  you will be happy to know peaches […]

Last November my husband and I spent the week of Thanksgiving in Tokyo. The first few days we were there Mr. Shenanigans had to work, so I took the opportunity to visit different neighborhoods in Tokyo, tasting different foods and soaking up the culture. Once his work obligations were complete we moved into a little […]

I’m celebrating spring with cake! Spring in Texas is part beauty and part terror. The beauty comes from the wildflowers that spring to life, seemingly overnight, along the roads and in fields. I drove down to Houston last weekend and was dazzled by fields filled to bursting with vivid Bluebonnets, Indian Paint Brushes, and Buttercups. […]

Love, as they say, is in the air. At least that is what candy, greeting card, teddy bear, pajama. and rose producers would like you to believe. It is nearly Valentine’s Day, the greeting card holiday that has convinced most people that the only acceptable way to express their love is through the purchase of […]

Apple Pecan Tart

I am a sinful person (as if the Evil in my blog’s title was not proof enough). This tart is proof of my sinful ways. You see, in my heart of hearts I am a slothful person. Don’t tell anyone, but there is nothing I like better than to spend a lazy day at home […]

Another year draws to a close. 2013 was a big year for me in many ways. Lots of life changing events. The most important of these was in February when I lost my beautiful, and always inspiring, Aunt Ruby. I still can’t really believe she is gone. If you know me at all you know […]

Good heavens, the holidays are nearly here! Where did the year go? I feel like I just took down my Christmas decorations, and now they need to go back up. I’m really not ready for it this year. Rather than ‘ho ho ho’, I feel ‘ho ho ho-hum’. Some years I get filled with the […]

I’ve made a new friend and become addicted to Chai Hot Chocolate. At my new part-time job I have become pretty good friends with my cubicle mate, Ms. T. It is a handy thing since we sit right next to one another two and a half days a week. She is a creative person who […]

Toasted Coconut Truffle Cups

You know I love chocolate, right? What I do not love is how commercial candy is loaded with processed, synthetic, and downright yucky ingredients. So, when you love candy like I do you can either stop eating candy, or you can make your own. Guess which option worked best for me? My friend Andrew over […]

Pomegranate Chocolate Swirl Cupcakes

Sometimes nothing but a cupcake will do. There is something appealing about a pretty little cake that is just for you. With large cakes you feel almost obligated to share because they are big and meant for sharing. Let’s be honest, who wants to be the person who ate the whole cake? And what about […]
