Orange Honey Pound Cake

Monday, April 14, 2014

6 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. […]

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

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

23 Comments

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

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 […]

Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

If you have been following me on Tiwtter then you know that I recently had some minor oral surgery.  For three to five days after I was to be on a soft food diet.   I know, how depressing. Well, I decided to be proactive and make some flavorful and hearty soups before I went in so my soft […]

Queso Blanco

Mon, Jun 29, 2009

24 Comments

There are certain foods that I crave and am completely unable to resist.    One of those foods is queso blanco.  This creamy cheese dip is finding its way on to the menus of  Tex-Mex restaurants next to the traditional orange chili con queso.  It is made with a variety of white cheeses and spices depending on where […]

Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin Roast

I love pork products, and I love finding new ways to cook with this most versatile ingredient. I am not a big fan of pork roast, however.  Most of the pork roast I have had has been dry, tough, and flavorless.  Even with elaborate stuffing, injections, and coatings I have found most pork roast to be boring.   It is […]

Five Spice Roasted Chicken Thighs with Peanut Rice Noodles

I don’t pretend to be an expert on Asian cooking.  Far from it. However, I know what I like, and I know what tastes good, and this chicken and noodle dish certainly does taste good!  The chicken and the noodles could stand alone as separate dishes, but I adore the spiced chicken with the peanut […]
