My goodness, it is nearly Turkey Day! I am not sure where the year went, I feel like I just took down the Christmas tree, yet I find myself at the starting line for another holiday season. With most holidays I start my planning with the menu. This year my mother is hosting Thanksgiving at […]

Butterscotch Cheesecake Topped Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

I am kind of over pumpkin. ‘Tis the season for the pumpkin latte, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin mac and cheese, pumpkin oatmeal, and pumpkin EVERYTHING. I swear if I see another pumpkin recipe I may start punching things. It isn’t that I dislike pumpkin – in fact I really like it – but SO many people […]

I love casseroles. They are what I consider the perfect comfort food. Why? Well, they are usually easy to make, they can be frozen ahead for times when the act of cooking seems to much to bear, and they are a complete meal in one dish. As I said, I love casseroles but I rarely […]

I try to keep a well stocked pantry. I never want to be without ingredients like vanilla, spices, chocolate chips, oats, dry fruit, and many other items I deem essential to my happiness. My well stocked, and organized, pantry has made many a recipe on this site possible. Let’s face it, I am a lazy […]

I am not usually happy to see summer go. Summer fruits and berries are leaving the markets. Just thinking about the end of peach makes me terribly sad! In Texas this time of year also means you have to keep an eye on the weather. One day it will be warm and sticky, the next […]

With Labor Day behind us, summer is unofficially over. It is still very hot here in Dallas, 103 F today, so forgive me if I am not ready to break into my fall comfort food recipes just quite yet. Peaches, for example, are still available at the farmer’s market and as long as they are […]

Sometimes I just can’t bear to turn on the oven. During the warmer months this is out of a desire to keep our humble little home cool. The kitchen, where I tend to spend most of my time believe it or not, is filled with lovely windows that give me a full view of our […]

Double Bacon Cheeseburger with Avocado Slaw

Fresh off the grill, nothings beats the flavor of a homemade burger. My love of hamburgers is fairly epic. I know all the places in Dallas, and a few in Houston, where juicy grilled beef goodness can be found, and I have an almost endless supply of burger recipes at my disposal. Call it  burger […]

Cheddar Beer Drop Biscuits

On a hot summer day there is nothing better than a frosty beer. Beer was not always my libation of choice. In fact my love affair with beer is fairly recent, about 8 years old. It all began with Mexican beers served with plates of spicy Tex-Mex. Margaritas were always my first choice because I […]

Goodness, summer has come in with something of a bang! Coming from Texas I am used to the heat, and I sort of perversely look forward to summer baking. Yes, the oven makes the house hot but if you plan it just right you can get a cake baked before the heat of the day […]
