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 […]

Lemon Cherry Cake

Mon, Jul 27, 2009

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

Fri, Jul 24, 2009

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

Mon, Jul 20, 2009

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

Fri, Jul 17, 2009

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 […]

Spicy Red Bean Soup

Wed, Jul 15, 2009

20 Comments

 Sometimes you just need a good bowl of soup.  The funny thing about soup is that despite how easy most soups are to make at home we, as a society, so often turn to the cans of soup that line grocery store shelves.  Yes, they are easy to prepare, but for all their ease of use they lack […]

Creamy Orzo and Mushroom Pasta

Mon, Jul 13, 2009

16 Comments

Ever since I was invited to the Mushroom Council lunch a few months ago I have been looking for new ways to add mushrooms into my everyday meals.   I have also been looking for new ways to use favorite ingredients because I can sometimes get into a cooking rut.  Orzo pasta is one of my […]

Fresh Peach Cobbler

Fri, Jul 10, 2009

When the weather turns from warm to hot, and the scents of grilling fill the air, my thoughts turn to cobbler.    I would like to take moment to clear up a misconception about cobbler.  It is not just fruit with a layer of pastry crust on top.  That is NOT a cobbler.  That is pie.  […]

Slow-cooked Beef Roast

Wed, Jul 8, 2009

I love a good old-fashioned roast beef dinner, but I really do not have the time to make it during the week.   Well, I didn’t until now. A few weeks ago I had a serious craving for some roast beef, the tender, fall-apart kind my grandmother used to make when we would go to her […]

Strawberry Jam Tarts

 Last October I had the opportunity to go to England and Ireland and the trip changed my life. Overall, I must admit, the food was pretty bleak.  I was so busy preparing for my friend’s wedding (in which I was not only the Matron of Honor but I was the cake designer) that I ate a lot […]

Buttermilk Biscuits

Fri, Jul 3, 2009

18 Comments

Tomorrow is the 4th of July here in the US, and I can think of no better way to celebrate our nation’s independence than with a hearty breakfast of flaky and tender buttermilk biscuits.   For years I struggled with buttermilk biscuits.  Drop biscuits I had down pat.  I could make batches of those fluffy little […]
