Orange Honey Pound Cake

Monday, April 14, 2014

5 Comments

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. […]

Peach Upside-down Cake

Wed, Sep 2, 2009

 As Summer winds down, and we start to see the Summer fruit dwindle in the stores, I find that I am on one last Summer dessert push.     I know, in a few shorts weeks, that the fresh Summer peaches will be replaces with the depressing peaches we get most of the year.  I am […]

Irish Soda Bread

 I’ve said it before, and I will say it again.  Ireland changed my life. On my first night in Dublin my husband and I found a bustling pub in the Temple Bar District which served traditional Irish food.  Now, most pubs sell Guinness stew and soda bread, but this pub had bangers and mash, roasted […]

Bacon Cheddar Cookies

Yes, Cheddar Bacon Cookies.  Now, before you ask, no this is not a sweet cookie.  It is a savoury cookie perfect for appetizers for serving with a salad or soup.  They are so good! These cookies are addictive.  They are the perfect base for savoury spreads and toppings, but are just as delightful all on […]

Bruléed Apple Tart

Inspiration comes from a lot of places.  Sometimes it is a basket of fresh fruit, sometimes it is a picture, and sometimes it is a television show.   Last week, while watching Gordon Ramsay’s The F Word, inspiration struck in the form of an apple tart.  Gordon baked sliced apples on a round of puff […]

Chocolate Angel Food Cake

 This recipe is something of a triumph for me.    I have long suffered with an inability to make a light and tender angel food cake.  The cakes always, without fail, fall in the oven or just after removal from the oven.  It drove me mad!   Now I am confident those days are behind […]

Cheddar and Gruyère Gougères

Mon, Aug 3, 2009

When I was in my Laminated Dough class in culinary school we made gougères.  I have never been the same since.   After reading what gougères were I was certain they would be awful.  I mean, a gougère is nothing more than pâte à choux  with cheese mixed in, but I always associated pâte à […]

Lemon Cherry Cake

When I buy fruit I find that I almost always buy more than I need.    In fact, I would go so far as to say I do that with most food.  That isn’t to say I am forever throwing away perfectly good food, but I plan for a dessert or salad and then overbuy […]

Croque-Madame Panini

What is better than a ham and cheese panini?  How about a ham and cheese panini topped with a fried egg and some creamy mornay sauce?   While dining out at a local French cafe I had a Croque-Monsieur which was quite nice.  I promptly went home to research what went into this sandwich when […]

Jalapeno Bacon Cheddar Cheese Burgers

A well grilled burger is a thing of beauty.  Add jalapenos, sharp cheddar cheese and thick cut bacon and it is the stuff of dreams. I have a few requirements for a good burger. It must be made with fairly lean  meat (around 90%), it must have salt and pepper, and it must remain moist after […]

Cherry Cheese Tart

I love fresh cherries, and at this time of year they are plump and sweet.   When the cherries hit the produce section I grab them up for cherry pies, cherry sauce, and for eating ice cold on a hot day.  However, I must warn you, cooking with fresh cherries in season will spoil you […]
