Japanese Milk Bread

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

4 Comments

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 […]

Coconut Curry Braised Short Ribs

Fri, May 14, 2010

I love coconut curries.  They are common on Thai menus and I adore their rich, creamy, and spicy flavors. Thai flavors have become rather common in my kitchen in recent years.  After I have my first bite of Pad Thai nearly ten years ago I became almost obsessed with trying new dishes and deconstructing them […]

Chocolate Mousse Cake

Often simple desserts are better than complicated ones.   That is not to say that the flavors are simple.  What I mean is that the dessert itself is made of only a few very well constructed components.  This mousse cake is an example of this.  Tender cake fluffy, rich mousse, and a light dusting of powdered […]

Happy Cinco de Mayo!   Where I live May 5th is celebrated as a day to enjoy some tasty Tex-Mex or authentic Mexican food, have a few beers, and get together with friends and family.   I love Tex-Mex, which I think I have said before, so any excuse is a good when my favorite food […]

Last year I visited my family in Houston and while I was there I had my first taste of Baked Potato Dip.   It is a concoction of sour cream, mayonnaise, bacon bits, green onions, and cheddar cheese which is served with salty potato chips.   Overall the dip is pretty tasty and I have made […]

I had the opportunity, thanks to Natalie at Natalie’s Killer Cuisine, to be a part of a Dallas Food Bloggers Pot-Luck Lunch.    She has a write up of the event on her blog, which you can check out here, and aside from a whole lot of good food, there was a whole lot of […]

Toasted Coconut and Chocolate Chip Blondies

I had a craving for coconut the other day. As it happens, I had some coconut in the pantry.  I also had some chocolate chips and my mind began working.  I ultimately decided on blondies.  For versatility, flavor, and general appeal you really can not beat a blondie.  Toss in some toasted coconut and some […]

Zinfandel Braised Chicken Thighs with Mushrooms and Polenta

I am something of a comfort food junkie. I have discovered, over the last year, the delightful bliss that is polenta.  I have also discovered that I am passionately in love with chicken thighs.  So, when I was craving something rich, creamy, and comforting the other night I decided to take my two new comfort […]

‘Big Evil’ Cheeseburger

I have fond memories of fast food from childhood. I did not get fast food all that often (thanks mom for always cooking for us!!) so I remember it being a special treat, or something we had when we were short on time.  When I was very small I would get kids meals, the happy […]

Blueberry Lime Fromage Blanc Tart

Ahhh, fresh blueberries! One of the best parts of spring is the arrival in the markets of fresh, plump berries.  I always get the itch to make a tart or pie with fresh berries at this time of year, and while shopping I also sampled some excellent fromage blanc.  I decided instantly that they would […]

Egg Salad

If you are anything like me, you have a few left-over eggs from Easter.   When I was growing up we never had egg salad.  Maybe it was because my parents did not care for it, or maybe they never thought of it, but we never had it.  Once I struck out on my own […]
