Kerrygold Open-Faced Breakfast Toasts

Monday, January 5, 2015

2 Comments

I’m a sucker for a good breakfast. I love breakfast, and I also love to entertain guests. When I have overnight guests I like to make them a special breakfast. Now, if you know me, you know I like things that LOOK like they took a lot of effort, when in reality they are dead […]

Honey Roasted Peanut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Monday, December 22, 2014

It there anything better than a peanut butter cookie? I am not sure that there is. They are rich, moist, nutty, and they have a subtle savoriness that balances the sweetness making them easy to eat. When it is gift giving season I bake tons of cookies to give as gifts, and peanut butter cookies […]

I love Kerrygold! A few weeks ago the nice people at Kerrygold offered to send me a package stuffed full of grass-fed cheeses and butters in exchange for two blog posts that featured their products*. As I said before, I love Kerrygold, so I was more than happy to participate! For November they wanted me […]

Salted Caramel Pumpkin Fluff Pie

Anyone who knows me knows I HATE the pumpkin spice trend. It is everywhere! You can’t escape it, you can’t hide. I have seen it in coffee, coffee creamer, cream cheese, chips, tea, chocolate bars, air fresheners, personal care products (really, REALLY personal), whipped peanut butter, and in mass produced cookies of all kinds. It […]

Dark Chocolate Banana Pudding

Tuesday, November 4, 2014

Banana pudding is a Southern staple. In the South – and Texas especially – food is love, and nothing says, “I love you!” better than banana pudding. Is your neighborhood having its annual pot luck supper? Count on at least one banana pudding. Did a friend or relative lose a loved one? Taking over a […]

Texas Peach Cheesecake

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 […]

Orange Honey Pound Cake

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 […]
