Orange Honey Pound Cake

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. […]

So, the New Year is well underway and so many people I know are keen to eat healthy. I have nothing against eating a well balanced diet that incorporates healthy ingredients and cooking techniques with occasional indulgences thrown in to keep cravings in check.  In fact, that is how I try to live my life […]

Baked Eggs with Homemade Sausage and Grits

There is something magic about food. The last few weeks have been somewhat difficult for me.  Nothing too extreme, but I have had a fair amount of work related stress, the stress of Christmas Day, and I am coming up on my first deadline for the next book.  Needless to say, I have been a […]

Get ready, I am going to get my whine on.  I know it is the holidays, but I am not feeling it. First off, my tree is 99% decorated.  I am afraid of heights, and my tree requires the use of a ladder to decorate the top.  I have not screwed up my courage (or […]

Cranberry Bourbon Christmas Cake

I’m not going to lie … this is a highfalutin fruit cake. Every year I make a fruit cake.  I find I really like them around the holidays.  There is something comforting about a booze soaked slice of cake which has been festooned with fruits and nuts.  (Yes, I said festooned.  It is a great […]

Chocolate Chip Coconut ‘Awesome’ Bars

I was kind of half joking on Twitter when I said that I would call these ‘Awesome Bars’. It turns out they are really quite awesome so I felt no qualms about adding it to the title.  So, what are ‘Awesome Bars,’ you might ask?.  Well, they are a dense, buttery cake bottom with a […]

It is almost time for the BEST part of Thanksgiving. If you would guess the big meal itself you would only be half right.  My favorite part of this feasting holiday would be the day AFTER the big event when the left-overs roam free!  I love left-overs more than the actual meal because they can […]

So, Turkey Day is on Thursday and I wanted to offer up a few suggestions for appetizers, side dishes, and desserts for those of you out there who are still working out those big feast menus.  Tomorrow I will be posting a recipe idea for those left-over mashed potatoes, but until then here are a […]

I love the side dishes served for Thanksgiving better the turkey. Yep, I’m the one who piles on the stuffing, scoops up the sweet potatoes, and gets the greediest portion of green beans.  For me turkey is better the next day in sandwiches, casseroles, or chopped up and cooked into soups.  This is one meal […]

Sweet Potato Pecan Coconut Cake

I love single layer cakes. They have a rustic appeal that I find immensely comforting.   Most single layer cakes are charmingly homemade in appearance, requiring no special skills to decorate them.  No torting layers, no stacking, no praying you avoid the  dreaded buttercream belly around the side of the cake.  If you decorate cakes […]

Thanksgiving is rapidly approaching. This year I have been thinking about pumpkin desserts that are not your standard pie or bread.  Don’t get me wrong, those desserts are all wonderful and I will be having at least one of them on our holiday table, but this year I wanted to shake things up.  I am […]
