Salted Caramel Pumpkin Fluff Pie

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

3 Comments

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 […]

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 […]

Cinnamon Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Is there anything better than a well made pound cake? Pound cakes are highly satisfying and wonderfully versatile.  I’ve served pound cake for dessert with whipped cream, I’ve served them with fresh berries for breakfast to great acclaim, and nothing beats pound cake for an after work/school snack.   Pound cake can also be the base […]

What happens when you combine breakfast and dessert? Answer: Magic!  I had actually been contemplating the breakfast/dessert idea for a while.  What spurred me into action was the email from the folks at FoodBuzz to let us know that Nature’s Pride would be holding their Bread Ambassador program again.  Nature’s Pride will select a few […]

Salted Honey Lavender Shortbread

Lavender, as an ingredient, is a little controversial. Most people I know either love it or hate it.  There is little room in between.  With its clean floral aroma, and a flavor that reminds me of rosemary with out the vociferous pine aftertaste, lavender can be delightful if used properly.  As with anything, too much […]

Paneer Potato Cakes

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.  […]
