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. […]

Chocolate Filled Pecan Shortbread Sandwich Cookies

May and June are all about travel. My first bit or travel has come and gone. I spent a weekend in the mountains of California eating, drinking, learning, and making friends at Camp Blogaway! It was my first year to attend, and I had the distinct honor of speaking on the subject of Beating Blogger […]

Tex-Mex Scalloped Potatoes

Fri, Apr 27, 2012

9 Comments

Creamy potatoes, smothered in cheese, are my idea of heaven. April has been a super busy month for me. I was hired to do the photography for a cookbook and my deadline is the 30th. So, while I have been very busy in the kitchen lately, almost all of it is for the photography project […]

Blueberry Maple Drop Biscuits

16 Comments

Nothing beats a well made biscuit. When I first started to get interested in cooking I spent a lot of time learning about southern comfort foods.  I was raised by two generations of Texas women who grew up on southern food, so the food of my childhood leaned heavily toward traditional, stick-to-your-ribs fare.  Biscuits were […]

Chocolate Chip Cardamom Oat Blondies

I have been something of a baby lately. As you may know, I have been on a medical scavenger hunt for almost two months now.  I have already endured numerous tests, trips to the emergency room, and visits to doctors and specialists.  For as long as I can remember I have hated doctors.  I may […]

Creamy Chile con Queso

“In Texas you can buy happiness. People generally order it as an appetizer. It’s called queso.” – @TexasHumor It is supposed to be a joke, but I find that chile con queso can, in actual fact, make most people quite happy!  It may just be a Texas thing, but whenever people gather to have a […]

Chocolate Glazed Coconut Cream Puffs

No matter the problem, I feel like cream puffs are always the solution. With February firmly behind me I was really looking forward to a new month not riddled with medical issues for both me and my family.  We did not get off to an encouraging start, with my husband battling a hacking cough and […]

Cinnamon Pecan Swirl Monkey Bread

Happy Leap Day! February has been one bitch of a month for me personally, so to celebrate the end of it I decided to bake something really, really naughty.  I was inspired by monkey bread, a heavenly concoction of cinnamon sugar covered dough that is baked in a sticky brown sugar and butter sauce.  The […]

Mini-Cheddar Corn Dogs

I know, the ‘Big Game’ is this weekend … but I have a shocking confession to make. I kind of don’t like  football.  We are a hockey family which means we love the quick pace, the action, the inevitable bout of teeth shattering fisticuffs, and the blare of the goal horn when someone tips the […]

Glazed Yuzu Pound Cakes

Last week I discovered that my local specialty market carries fresh yuzu when they are in season.   I have never seen it fresh before, we usually only get the bottled juice if we are lucky, so I snatched up a few for experimenting.  When I got them home and presented them to my husband, […]

Four-Cheese Grilled Pimento Cheese and Bacon Sandwiches

Thu, Jan 19, 2012

I am a sucker for a good grilled cheese sandwich. Not just any grilled cheese, mind.  Yes, growing up I loved grilled cheese sandwiches made from processed cheese slices and that cotton candy white bread.  Let’s just say my palate has matured.  These days I have some pretty strict standards for grilled cheese.  They are […]
