Orange Honey Pound Cake

Monday, April 14, 2014

4 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. […]

Dark Chocolate Chip Pavlova with Strawberry Whipped Cream

Fri, Jul 29, 2011

This has been an exciting week for me! I am so happy to let you know that I am going to write a second cookbook!  It will be another book about pies, because you can’t have too much pie I suppose, but this book will be different than the last in that it will focus […]

Chocolate Italian Wedding Cupcakes with Chocolate Sour Cream Frosting

Thu, Jul 21, 2011

38 Comments

These cupcakes were born of necessity. Originally this batch of cupcakes was intended to be a full fledged cake, but due to my rather appalling laziness the pans I had intended to use were dirty when the urge to bake struck.  When I say dirty I mean stuck on, needing a good soak, burnt on […]

White Chocolate Fudge Pie

You would think I would be over pies. It is true that after writing Everything Pie (due out in September and available for pre-order at the link to your right) I would never want to bake another pie again.  For a while that was true, but after a few pie-free months I noticed that I […]

Steak Salad with Poached Egg and Creamy Chive Dressing

What?  She made a salad?  Oh yes, she sure did! Despite what some may think, I do enjoy a good salad.  That said, I am not a weeds and lemon juice kind of gal (no offense to those of you who are).  If you are going to feed me salad there are a few requirements […]

Quick Sour Cream Cinnamon Rolls

Boy, has it been a LONG week … For the second time in three weeks I have gone AWOL, and I am sorry for that.  I was hoping that after my last bout of family related drama things would quiet down, but it was not to be.  Last week my father was feeling a little […]

Sometimes you will be bopping along, and then … WHAM!! Life is unpredictable.  Often when you least expect it things go all pear shaped.  That has happened in my life over the last week, and it is also why I have been relatively quiet.  Things are working themselves out now, but it will be a […]

Beef Short Rib Tamales

Thu, Jun 2, 2011

I am really quite a tamale snob. Let me explain.  You see, the ratio of well prepared tamales to terrible tamales is currently around 1 to 100.  What makes a bad tamale?  First, the masa.  A bad tamale has either dry, crumbly masa, or gooey, undercooked masa.  Typically you see the former, which is why […]

Grilled Peach and Vanilla Cake Trifle with Golden Syrup Whipped Cream

I guess you could say I have Georgia on my mind. It makes sense considering I was in Atlanta last weekend for BlogHer Food.  Now, I could use this space to discuss the actual event, but I don’t think it is necessary.  So many bloggers have posted their thoughts, Linda and Dianne for example, and […]

Cornmeal Buttermilk Cake with Chocolate Buttermilk Frosting

I am the kind of person who appreciates texture. Texture is a make or break for me, particularly in food.  Example – I love the flavor of pears but the grainy, sandy texture is a real turn off.   On the other hand, a plain hamburger bun is fine, but sprinkled with crunchy little poppy seeds […]
