Orange Honey Pound Cake

Monday, April 14, 2014

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. […]

I was lucky enough to make it through to the second round of Project Food Blog!  Many thanks to the generous people who voted for me.  Your reward is something delicious! Last year my husband and I went to Bavaria.  Munich to be precise.  A good part of my family came to America from the […]

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 […]

Breakfast Bread Pudding

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 […]

Let’s be honest, you and I, because if we do not have honesty, what do we have?  I’m not sure about this whole Project Food Blog thing. First, let me explain what Project Food Blog is. Project Food Blog is a set of challenges that will test the blogging mettle of the 1,000+ contestants.  Each […]

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.  […]

Orange Chocolate Stout Cake

I love beer. I know, not exactly shocking if you know me.  So many of my recipes are born of the odd craving, and this one is no different.  One afternoon, during a particularly stressful day at the office, I found myself craving a nice, stout beer.  I was also thinking how nice a slice […]

When you have the best ingredients you do not need to do much to make them shine. While in Seattle for IFBC I picked up some lovely Alder Smoked Salmon.  On its own it is fantastic.  One subtly smoked, tender taste had me happily handing over my cash.  Once I got it home I decided […]

Stepping out of the airport a chilly breeze carries the scent of salt water as well as a delicious shiver of anticipation down my spine. I have arrived in Seattle for the International Food Bloggers Conference and consumption is the only thing on my agenda.  Before me stretches three days of excellent of food, wine, […]

Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies

I’m something of a brownie junkie. That said, I am very specific about what I want in a good brownie, and I’m sad to admit I am not satisfied with most coffee shop or bakery brownies.  Give me deep, dark, intense, and fudgy brownies and I am a happy woman.  These needs do not change […]
