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. […]

You came here for french fries, and french fries you shall get … but first something fun! On Easter I was given a very special award from the very lovely, and talented beyond belief, Half Baked Baker! She passed along to me the following award:  “These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to […]

Dark Chocolate Chip Brownies

If you do not like chocolate jam packed inside a fudgy brownie, turn back now!   This recipe is adapted from one we made in culinary school.  The brownies we made were ok, but we did not use dark chocolate or dutch processed cocoa powder.  I do and the result is superior.  There is also […]

  I was reading Closet Cooking today, a wonderful blog by the way and a must read, and he had a recipe for Jalapeno Popper Dip posted which set my mouth to full water.  It is at this point where I must tell you that I love dips, warm dips especially, and I knew that I […]

Maple and Bacon Muffins

I am a bacon devotee.  I’m not sure if you have noticed, but I love the stuff!  That’s why when I was challenged to create a sweet and savoury bacon muffin I jumped at the challenge!   But, this is a tale of sadness, regret, but eventual triumph!  Two months ago, on a cold January […]

Garlic Butter Shrimp Pasta

Mon, Apr 6, 2009

While out at dinner a few nights ago I had some really lovely garlic shrimp over rice.  It was really tasty, but I am not a fan of rice unless it is my mother-in-laws fried rice, and I wondered how it would taste with pasta instead.   So, a few nights later the inspiration bug […]

Today is my birthday!!  I won’t tell you how old I am … that would just depress me.  But, I will tell you what does not depress me …   Cupcakes!  Especially when they are in fun red liners from acupcakery.com!!  Red is my absolute favorite color, and the liners stayed nice and bright after […]

It’s April Fool’s Day … but I am not fooling around when I tell you that this pound cake is about the best I have ever had.  I had half a bag of coconut sitting in my pantry since I made my Carrot Coconut Cupcakes and I didn’t know what to do with it.  For […]

Chicken Tikka Masala

  I have been craving Indian food lately and it has been an excellent opportunity to try out some new recipes and dig out some old favorites.  It has been an adventure, trying different blends of spices, different cooking techniques, and working out what I like and what needs tweaking. Chicken tikka masala is one […]

Spiced Dark Chocolate Pudding

When I was in culinary school we made cardamom tea cookies which we dipped in bittersweet chocolate.  I was certain it would be awful but I tried them and discovered that the pungent cardamom accented the rich dark chocolate very well.  From that day forward I have been playing around with cardamom and chocolate.  My latest […]

 When I was in England last Fall I fell in love.    Not with a person, or even the land or the culture, however fantastic they all are.  No, I fell in love with the bacon.  In England they serve, almost exclusively, back bacon.  If you have never had this kind of bacon before it is a  […]
