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 […]

Southern Banana Pudding

Fri, Jan 22, 2010

51 Comments

Nothing is quite like homemade, from scratch, banana pudding.    Sure, you can make a passable banana pudding with instant pudding mix, but if you really want to taste something special make your custard from scratch.  Once you do you will never use a box of pudding again.  Besides, taking about ten minutes to cook […]

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love old family recipes.  I also love cookies. My mom makes some pretty fantastic oatmeal cookies.  They are my grandmother’s recipe, handed down on a butter stained note card, and they are lovely.  Crisp throughout with a hint of cinnamon and a lovely nubby texture makes them instantly craveable.  They are mom’s go-to cookie and the most […]

Orange Chicken with Fried Rice

Growing up I despised what I knew as Chinese food. What we always got was greasy, over breaded, over sauced American take-out Chinese food.  It was terrible.  This aversion became a fairly serious problem for me when I was first invited over to my future mother-in-law’s house for dinner.  She is from Taiwan and was […]

Chocolate Swirl Pound Cake

Fri, Jan 15, 2010

27 Comments

When I was a child swirled pound cake was an utter mystery to me. I wondered how they were able to get the chocolate batter to make such intricate designs in the finished cake.  Now that I am older I understand that the oven does nearly all the swirling because as the cake bakes the […]

Pasta with Zinfandel Tomato Sauce and Ricotta

Wed, Jan 13, 2010

33 Comments

Don’t you just love meals you can make in the snap, but taste like you cooked all day? I work three part-time jobs at the moment (long story) and I also attend culinary school at night, so I understand and adore quick meals that do not taste quick.  What makes this pasta sauce so tasty […]

Banana and Chocolate Mascarpone Crepes

The combination of chocolate and banana is highly underrated.   Aside from some frozen bananas dipped in chocolate, and chocolate chip banana bread, the combination is largely overlooked.  Well, break out your bananas because we are going to make something that will make chocolate lovers rejoice.    The crepes are chocolate but they do not have […]

Slightly Less Evil Shenanigans – The 10 in 10 Challenge Week 2

Sun, Jan 10, 2010

7 Comments

Welcome to Week 2 of the Ten in Ten Challenge! Believe it or not, I really like food that is terribly bad for you (I’ll wait while you pick your jaw up off the floor). The fastest way to wreck a healthy eating plan is to say that certain foods are forbidden. All that does […]

Mushroom Risotto

When the weather turns cold and the wind begins to howl, nothing warms me up faster than a bowl of creamy risotto. Shockingly, I have never had Risotto until last year!  To be honest with you, it was always the last thing I considered ordering because I love pasta so much, but one night at […]

Apple Carrot Maple Cakes with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting

Nothing makes me happier than when I can combine two things I love into one thing I really love! I love apple cake and I love carrot cake.  While looking at some apples in the market I noticed carrots on sale also, and inspiration struck!  Why not combine the two?  Tart apples, sweet carrots, warm spices, […]
